I want something that looks neat or at least not ugly and works great for both of my H100i rad and the case. going to connect them to my FC5 v3 fan controller.

Scythe Gentle Typhoons are the best bet, I've used the cougars, great fans, but the GTs still beat them for temps in my system. And the GTs were quieter for me. And I like the black/grey color theme of the GTs.

I found only 1450RPM model (US$ 15,00). They worth the money too? They are almost as good as 1850 model? I already own 5 1850 RPM, I would buy only 3 more (2 for top and 1 for front).

Or should I look for another fan?

TY!

I only use the AP14's, they are the best IMHO since I can run them at full speed and they are still quieter than all of the other hardware! So yes, they are worth it!!!

I have two af140, and 3 sp120...which ones would you guys suggest for the front? I know it's probably not a huge deal, just wondering what people think.

I got 3 SP120's up front on mine. No problems pulling cool air into the case. Generally it's recommended to use higher static pressure fans if you have the dust filter installed. thumb.gif

I got 3 x SP120's and they are fine. Work perfect

Yes get the 1450. I have one of these in my rig running at full speed where as my 1850s are running at a reduced voltage. The 14's are very quiet indeed and still shift lots of air. I would have preferred to be using all 14 's as I find when the 18's are slowed down too much the motors start to make an unpleasant humming noise. I also find with the SP120 fans that they don't like my fan controller. Once slowed down they make a really horrible buzzing noise. I have an AF140 in exhaust which I have to run at full speed as is buzzes like made when slowed.

EDIT: I am well aware that the buzzing issues I have with the corsair fans is down to my fan controller and not the fans. YMMV
