It might be a little noisy at 39.5dBA, but the Cooljag Everflow specs at 110CFM. It's $20 (a little pricey), but I've heard they move a lot of air.

Thermaltake makes good fans too, IMO. I have three 120mm TT Smartfans in my PC (clear/blue LED) and they move a ton of air - and aren't as loud as I thought they'd be (it says 45dBA).

This Smartfan is black and orange and has a black slot controller, up to 95CFM.

These are the Thermaltake Blue LED Smartfans I have in my PC.

46.5dBA @ 93.7CFM. The blue LED's are bright and look really good. The airflow is excellent, maybe not 93CFM but really good. They make less noise than I was expecting... it seems the noise purely comes from the high air flow... no whining or buzzing or anything like that.

$12.99 isn't a bad price either, consider they come with an optional adjuster and temp sensor control to slow them down to less than half their top speed (1300-2800RPM). I highly recommend these fans!

Hmmm.... this Rexflo fan is $20.00, and rated at 96CFM - maybe a little too pricey though.

I've heard Yate Loons are decent. This one is spec'd at 88CFM @ 40dBA, and is only $5.95.

Or you could try this Sunon Fan - 90CFM @ 44.5dBA, $9.99 is a pretty good price.

The FM121-B has a black fan controller. Same fan.
post #10 of 21
>=\\ Is that what the difference is? ARG! And the B is cheaper by like 2 dollars on NewEgg.
