Quietest LED 140mm fan?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, i've got some plans to add some nice subtle lighting to my new HAF XB case and I wanna do it with white LED fans and I'm gonna go ahead and upgrade to 140mm intakes on the front of the case like this gentlemen did with this.

That being said, should I do the BitFenix or the Aerocool models? I don't have any experience with either of these makers, so I need peoples input on this. Again, around 40-50CFM is plenty for my needs, I need them to be QUIET for my HAF XB case build project.

I have used 140mm Aerocool Sharks before and so far they are pretty quiet so long as you run it in silence mode (7v or so) while pushing decent amount of air.

What about the BitFenix pros'? I've heard more about them from people

BitFenix Spectre Pros (the link that you provided are BitFenix Spectres) are also really good. Again, audible at full 12v, you just have to lower the volt a bit to quiet it down.
