What are the best fans for Evolv ATX in terms of price/quiet operation/performance?

And what do you guys think about putting some sound dampening material like this one for example :



On these places and the other side panel, of course inside of the case :

You will likely find that the sound dampening material is not needed on the Evolv ATX, and would probably do nothing to very little.

As for the fans, you are going to have a hard time improving on the included F140SP in this application regardless of how much you spend. There are better fans made, but they will not necessarily be better as intake and exhaust in this case. However, you can increase airflow slightly by going to three 120mm intakes rather than the two 140mm.

I don't think the sound dampening will help tbh, will just add further restriction to the grill areas and trap heat more.

I think running fans at lower speeds and ensuring they are fully isolated would be a much better strategy.

I have seen this video, how do you think the autor of the video put that fan in the top of the HDD cage? Do you think it help to down the temps in the cpu cooler?
Thanks

Keep in mind when asking this, that it is a lot easier said than done. To show any pics of this you have to remove the top rad tray. Most would have to drain their loop to do this. If you are using an AiO, it is far simpler, but still a bit of a task. You have my word that I will post some this weekend when my loop is apart.

Update to the taping, it does not work as expected. Temps are still nearly 10c lower if panel is off when gaming, time to dremel i guess :/. Taping helped around 5 celsius at load tho vs unmodded.
