Recommendation for good 120mm Fans

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Antec 900 with two of the Antec fans in the front, one in the back, and the big fan on top.

I have a CoolerMaster 120mm fan that produces some good airflow in the side panel, and I have a fairly low <1400 120mm fan attached to my Arctic Freezer 7 by zipties connected to the back fan.

I'm looking for some good 120mm fans to replace the side fan, as well as the fan on my cooler, and another to stick in the case where the attachment in in the front bays where I can add another fan.

So I'd like to find 3 new 120mm fans that are very good at cooling, and perhaps not extremely loud.

I saw someone mention those Kaze fans or whatever it is, and was interested, but was not sure what the best would be.

I would use the Enermax Magma UCMA12 or the Gelid Wing12.

Cooler:

Case:

Thanks guys, I will be checking all of those out and figuring out how much I want to speed.

I think I will pick up a few but I'm trying to keep my options open.

Also, I have no idea what the speeds are for the fans that come with the Antec 900, so I'm not sure what fans are actually have more CFM and everything so if anyone knows then please tell me.
