Horizontal 200 or 140mm fans (I HATE NOISE)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What do I buy? My 200mm red led mega flow started sounding like an un even dryer... I want to get something to run off molex power and be quiet

Red leds is a plus and I dont care if its 2 140s or 1 200mm as long as its quiet ! Made the mistake of going with the sleeve bearing

Was looking at the Cougars (old non led) and heard that have problems when mounted horizontally... i wonder if the new ones have the same issue? This thing is in my room and when I built it i built it for performance... but when something starts virbating or screeching...

Save my life.... i need to place an order by tomorrow night.

talks about different types of fan bearings


You could do this if you have the oil already
