Case fan suggestion

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, ive recently moved in with a few roommates and we all agree that my comp is way to loud, so there going to pitch in to get me more quiet fans. It sounds like a vacuum! My case supports 4 fans total, 3 80MM and 1 120MM. If any of you can recommend decently priced 80/120MM fans that move a decent amount of air, and are quiet, I would really appreciate it. Thanks guys!

Get some Yate Loons from Petra's for ~$4 per fan. They are cheap, quiet and preform extremely well.


As for the 80mm fans, they aren't generally quiet so any brand is fine.

You might also want to look into getting a fan controller to solve the noise problem.

those should be excellent but if you want you could get a 4 fan speed controller and get higher cfm fans then just turn them down when u need em down ^_^
