That's why I'm thinking about just grabbing a third NZXT fan, putting those three in the front @ 7v and putting the 2 good enermax on my gpu rad when the bracket gets here. I'm so picky about noisy, it sucks.

I have a similar situation, on my PC i have 2 240 rads and one 360 on the front, and for the top 240 and the 360 fans i have two voltage fan controller like this one:

http://www.quietpc.com/fanmate2

I have 2 Corsair SP120 Quiet ED and 3 Noctua NF-F12 both controller i set them to the minimum since there's no need to have high airflow with the 3 rads i have. The other rad have another Noctua NF12 and a Swiftech Helix-120, for these one i used resistors to lower the speed. If you will use voltage regulation try to not mix match the fans on the same controller, each model of fan have a different sound signature and you will probably need to have them on a different voltage. For connecting the fans i use the Y connector that came with the noctua fans, those connector are just wires and don't drop the voltage the fan gets.

The only comeback is that when i turn the pc on the noctua fans don't start spinning cause setting them at 5v is not enough to the first spin, so i have to crank it up and then lower it back to the minimum. Is a small annoyance compared to using the noctua fans with PWM (i was having a lot of motor noise with PWM).

Interesting. I just found these http://www.performance-pcs.com/yate-loon-140mm-low-speed-silent-case-fan.html#Specifications Great price, but would they be enough to overcome my case filter? If they are, I'll just put those in the front and be done. At 12v, they should be quiet enough, right? If not, I can get the medium speed one and run it at 7v.

I have a few YateLoon fans, 12v ones and are really noisy, try to look on this channel for those fans and compare it to some fan you have.

On those videos they use voltage regulation so you wont notice any motor noise that PWM could add. You could check out the Enermax TB Silence (i think they did one) and compare it to your current fans to hear if doing voltage regulation will lower the sound signature.

I actually watched the TB silence video and theirs is even noisier than mine. Fans are so complicated if you don't want to spend $15 a fan.

Yup, totally, I think that that money is an investment for my mental sanity, here in my country you can't get any fan that is high end, i have to import most of the fans i own and i paid more than double in the end. But well, it's well worth it.

How fast do you have to run them? How about getting some AC F12 or Slip Streams? Cheap and quiet if 800RPM is enough.

Yeah, the noctuas I got with my nh-d14 honestly disappoint me, though. I was expecting magical fairies and rainbows. Jk . Anyway, do you think it'd be best (read cheapest) route of course to buy a 3rd NZXT FNv2 120 and just pop those 3 in the front when my bracket gets here, push pull for the gpu rad and run the NZXTs on 7v, the gpu rad fans on the chassis header @ level 2 or so?

What are your temps on your gpu, cpu? If you are trying to get as close as silence, adding more fans will do worst that having the fans at pull or push only. Post an update picture if you can.

Right now, my gpu likes to top out around 90c with the fans capped at 60%, the three enermax at 900rpm intaking, noctua nh-d14 stock fans at 7v, cpu hits 71c max during IBT, which causes the enermax fans to ramp to 1300rpm, rear exhaust is a nzxt fnv2 120mm at 12v. Temps are all in happy places, though I am getting the corsair HG10 to pull the gpu temps down, so that I may run even lower fan speeds and not have so much heat spraying around in my case.

Stopped the "clicky" fan with my finger and the noise went away, so it is for sure that fan, but I'm leaning towards bearing as opposed to PWM click.

I am quoting this because edit doesn't seem to be updating to the added text. Edit2: I think I found the solution. I do plan to use the NZXT fans, I'm gonna buy a third one, but I'm 90% sure if I add a shroud to pull them away from the front grill, at 12v, the sound will be just as 7v is right at the grill. The air going through the grill is making it annoying. The problem is finding shrouds now <.<<br />
Addition to edit 2, I just made a mockup, by mockup, I probably will use this setup. I ziptied my NZXT 120mm fan to a empty shell (the shroud) and swapped the fans around to remove the bad bearing enermax. I connected the NZXT to 12v, in order to test for the air noise from the honeycomb grill, and the noise is not there with the shroud! The air coming through, even with the filter, is quite sufficient, and I do believe this will be the solution moving forward. I must find some fans I can cut up to create two more shrouds and order a third NZXT 120mm fan. I was right that the NZXTs are good fans smile.gif. Not bashing the enermax fans, they'll be going on my noctua nh-d14 or on my corsair h50 rad for the gpu, but that one bearing was too damn annoying. Shrouds, I love you.
