Good 120mm Red LED or UV Case fans? Not expensive

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I don't want to spend $10-20 on a fan, but I would like some decent performance.

I'm trying to find Red LED because I don't want to do the cliche Blue LED set up with my next case, but I'm having trouble finding good Red LED fans.

There's a Blue LED version of the Yate Loon D12SL-12 on SVC/Jab-tech for $5.99.

I can't find the Red LED version of the Yate Loon anywhere, unless it's grossly over-priced and that's aggravating.

I was considering the Thermaltake Thunderblade Red LED, but I read a review about it and it's supposedly very badly over-rated with it's "21 db" rating.

NOTE again: I don't want to spend more than $6 on a fan. Please don't come in and preach to me on "getting what you pay for". All I want are suggestions.

I've tried Xoxide, FrozenCPU, performance-PCS, Jab-tech, SVC. Can't find anything decent.

Antec Tri-Cool is a nice one, cheap too. The LEDs are bright and it has 3 speed settings

Newegg -> LED Color = Red.
Price = $1-$10
Sort by price.
Get the cheapest one.

Stay away from Rosewill. Pins fall out the molex connectors.

i'm running these Logisys ones at ~7v most of the time with those little rubber mounts. they're nice and red (not pink, although some people would say they're orange) and the specs are decent (69cfm) and the noise from them is more of the air "whoosh" than motor groan (rated as 39dba). btw - far from silent but at ~7v i don't even register them when i go to sleep. they're the same as the generic quad led ones from Xoxide and J-T.

and the Rosewill's are more pink than red T-T

Define irony. Logisys and Apevia RED LED 120mm fans are $4.99 a piece.

The shipping............. $4.99 lol.

I can't seem to win in these situations. I'm starting to think I'm doomed.

It's either, spend $3 a piece and get a Yate Loon fan that's only a fan controller away from giving Nexus Quiet Case Fan performance, or spend $10 and get a cheap red LED fan that operates at 30+ DB for 60 CFM.

/sigh
