Deciding on case fans

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello. I am building a PC using the new CaseLabs SMA8 case and I will be starting this off with air cooling and adding water cooling down the line. I want to have three 120mm. fans in the front and 4 120mm. fans up to exhaust. I would like to get fans that I will want to use for the radiators that I plan on installing down the road. What fans manufacturers and models should I be looking at for these 120mm. fans? I am somewhat new to this game so the only names I really know is Noctua and Corsair, but there are so many others.

Thanks all.

Noise-blockers are real good, I actually like the koolance fans (to me the price performance is worth a little extra noise) Corsair is over rated and cost more than they should, scythe, Yate looms has good performace/price point. no where near the quality of the Noctua or Noiseblockers or scythe's. those are the one's I would consider!!

When choosing the brand and size, there are some companies (Like Noctua) that have multiple styles within each model. It mostly looks like a difference in speed. What is a common choice for either 120mm case fans or 120mm rad fans?
