I need three 120mm fans with red LEDs I was going to go with these Rosewill fans that are on sale, as I have used Rosewill fans in the past, but I'm worried they will be too loud. Anyone have a suggestion?
Rosewill 120mm Fan

At least tell us you got the 4GB version.

No the performance of the 960 4gb compared to the 2gb wasn't good enough to justify the price.

When you start getting larger games the 4gb regardless the performance become more key. If someone benches GTA V on a 2GB with max settings it'll be crushed where as the 4GB hardly feels the impact.

This. More memory doesn't help performance until you need it, then you'll wish you had more, trust us.
