White LED fans for front intake

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I'm doing a build for a friend and I'll be using a C 70 military green with the Z87 Sabertooth. Here are some of the parts going into it:




I am looking for some white LED fans for the front intake. I'll be using the NZXT hue inside the case. I've got about 4 days to get this done. Anyone have suggestions for some sollid fans with white LEDs? I was looking at these fans:

Corsair AF120
AeroCool shark fan
Xilence XQ series dual wing

The last one seems to be unavailable here in the states. Any suggestions?

I would have suggested this, however, it's out of stock. Those are some solid fans, and I like them because they come in all sizes and colors.
As an alternative, I suggest the Corsair, considering the popularity of its non-LED counterpart.

Also, out of curiosity, these 120's will just be on the case, and you'll have other 140mm fans for the radiator, which I am assuming you already have sorted out, correct?

I looked at those xigmatek fans. there are also these which I considered buying for myself a while back. The Kraken X60 will be using the stock fans for now.

thanks, but my brother had some of the non pro bitfenix fans and the airflow is not very good at all. I may lose the corsair air series for the same reason. though these look to have better specs.

Cooler Master Jetflo , with the speed reducers

The Corsair C70 is quite restrictive in front (due to HDD cages)
