New fans for next build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am in search of new fans for my new build and wanted to get some opinions of any of these fans. They are going in a nzxt h440 case and I'm trying to keep a red and black theme. They are going to be used with radiators and I'd like they remain as quite as possible while still getting the job done.

Any info would be helpful. Just trying to narrow them down in the near future as these are the basically the last parts to find.

Thanks in advance.

And these are supposed to be good as well (similar to GT's): http://www.frozencpu.com/products/26090/fan-1395/EK_Vardar_FF5_120mm_x_25mm_High_Static_Pressure_PWM_Fan_-_3000_RPM_-_42_dBA_EK-Vardar_FF5-120_3000rpm_.html?tl=g57c707s2321

Ok change of plan I think i'm going to try the Inwin 707 case. So now I'm going to need 140mm and 120mm fans that match. This eliminates a lot of the options above. Mainly the eloop as the front runner. I think this mainly leaves the Corsair and Aerocool fans. Anyone have any imput on these fans. my concern with the Corsair fans is noise and the Aerocool performance and reliability. Any help before Friday would be great.

Corsair fan's QC sucks. Ive had 4 different pairs (so 8) of their SP120 fans and each and every one had an issue, whether it was rattling, not hitting claimed speeds. or completely failing.

Cant comment on Aerocool fans.

For static pressure sake id stick with a good 120mm like the eloops or multiframes which are highly recommended

Thanks for the input Nick. So you think I would be better off with 120mm eloops than other 140mm fans. The 140mm fans will be for 3 intakes and one exhaust the only obstructions will be the case as none of them will be on radiators that is where the 5 120mm fans will be 3 exhaust and 2 intake.

I have a couple of these in 120mm, and I really like them. Mine are black, no LEDs, but the 120s and 140s match. The only possible downside is that these are not PWM; I got them because my motherboard will regulate them, anyway, They each go for about $16.50 on eBay or in other stores a little more.

I own: Gentle Typhoons, Enermax Magma and Twister Pressure. And I have to say avoid those like the plague. Reviews shows crazy low db, but doesn't account for those annoying motor noise. Buzzzz buzzzzz buzzzzz.

The Cryorig qf120 Silent looks tempting doe.
