Don't mind me, down time at work makes me too bored for my own good.
Anyways... Just a few post back there was a bit of ramble about the Corsair fans. The AF and SP series fans look great in this case. There is a new PWM version of the SP120 fans although NOT the AF140. (don't know why)
I am a PWM junkie who can't stand computer white noise. My rig lives in my room so any noise gets loud in a hurry.
So far I have found this case to be pretty quiet on air cooling, but I'm working on a water set up before this one will be done.
My current favorite fans are the BeQuiet! Silent Wings 2. They are expensive but the quietest fan I have ever dealt with. They offer PWM in almost every size and model so managing them is very easy. Their down side is that they are not a square frame. So radiator mounting isn't as straight forward as I would like, but it works.
There are a lot of options based on budget and sound preference. TatorTot on OCN has a really good wirte up and 1000+ post thread about fans not to mention martins liquid lab and cooling techniques on youtube.
Just thought about this.... Does anyone else have that big box of mystery fans hiding in the closet? Filled with OEM fans that you never used or great idea at the time fans taht never lived up to your hopes.
