Whats the best 120mm Case Fan

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Whats the best 120mm Case Fan for a Cosmos 2 case side door that's operating as intake Pulling the air into the case and blowing the air onto my video card. I have heard that some fans operate best for radiators, hence restriction, and others are best for case fans. What would you recommend..

GTs are quite good. Corsair are not very good. They have pretty colored rings. An old saying is if it don't go paint it or chrome it so at least it looks pretty.

Honestly my favorite are Foxconn fans from Dell machines, $5 a piece with a great sound at full speed, lots of pressure, and a whisper at low speed.

46 dBA seems pretty loud, guess with PWM you can reduce the speed.

What do you expect at 3000rpm? Indeed, dropping the speed makes a huge difference, not just in the actual fan noise but the noise the airflow makes going into and out of fan through fins and grills. thumb.gif
