What are the best led Exhaust and Intake fans i can get?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I want some good quiet 120mm blue led exhaust and intake fans. I am debating between the Gelid Wing or the Enermax T.B.SILENCE.

Which one should I pick? I hear the Gelid is supposedly loud at 12V. But thats the speed I plan on running the intake and exhaust fans. They both supposedly have the same CFM ratings but the Enermax is supposed to be quieter? quite is the key, give me some input and suggestions please!

You want a good LED fan? Right.

I've never cared for LED fans, but I am using Corsair SP120's at the moment and they're quite good, and quiet.

I've been told by a few people now that those Cougar fans are also good.

I miss the old OCN where everybody jumped in within hours you were bound to have your dilemma sorted.

yes I'm having a bad hair day, friend gave me his fan dilemma and I just want to get over and finish rebuilding the water cooling setup we have been working on. So if you want to make my day better, Please, by all means sir, chime in and help me pick some led fans.

ledz man, because you know...batman.

I already picked some corsair SP120's for the radiators. Cougars are good but the PWM versions V12HP is kinda crappy and loud, I have one sitting here. Need some good led fans now tongue.gif

I think I have narrowed it down to these 3 having the best rep for "led" fans.

You could always try different fans and see which you like the best.

I use Xigmatek CLF-F12XX series fans on my antec 620 rad and they are really quite. Come in a whole host of different colours including blue.
