Best Silent 120mm Case Fans? - Page 6

post #51 of 139
I'm quite surprised nobody has mentioned the GentleTyphoon: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/scge120mmsic2.html

That's the AP-15 model, highest speed. This is the fan that Martinm210 said was the best noise/performance ratio and the fan he'd get personally as it is quiet.

Gentletyphoons are great, don't get the Coolermaster R4's cause I have one and it only pushes around 70 cfm and its not that quiet. My gentletyphoon on the other hand, is quiet and pushes around the same amount of air(little less though) but its also one of the best designed fans I've ever seen.

the enermax cluster fans are good seen many reviews on them, plus you can turn the lights off D

I think I'm gonna go for a fan controller and try it with my existing tri-cools. If I don't like it, I'll opt for some yate loons, since so many people love them.

gentle typhoon, gelids are pretty good but gentles would be the best bet. Also not sure if they are any good. Noctuas are a very expensive fan and there are much better for cheaper

They're okay.

I vote yate-loons. Cant beat them for the price. $3.60 from jab-tech.

Which ones ? Link! =D

I forgot to mention 2 out of the 5 fans are for cooling my h50 with a push and pull configuration and the other 3 are for the case.

Don't do it. They are not silent at all even at lowest speed. Low sounds like a mini wind tunnel. I am trying to find the best option for myself too. I am wondering if the one that was reccommended to me is good but its a low profile one. I wouldn't know if its good for the h50 cooler.
