Yo,

I have 3 x 120mm versions in my Define XL of these.
Whisper quiet and shift a decent amount of air.

Really? I've read many reviews saying they are really loud and their specs are way off. I'll consider this one mainly because I don't like the yellow color:

Any other recommendations? I am looking mainly for fans with high CFM and under 30 dBA.

You have them? How do you like it? I'll be getting a fan controller regardless if the fan is silent or not, so I'm good if it is loud.

How about the Bgears 140mm? 1800 RPM is crazy, but I think at 7v they would be quieter and still move plenty of air.

Well, I do like them, I had it on a H50 so that would be making some more noise than in a case-mount. They push lots of air, and works perfect for both case and rad-mounting. At the moment im using it on my test PSU that has a broken fan, works great tongue.gif

I changed the fans for Akasa Apache as the colorscheme diddnt match with the green/yellow color on the blades. I'd go for the fan as it can push lots of air if wanted and can also be pretty silent.

EDIT:
What about some Scythe AP-15's?

I've got 4 of the Bgears 140mm fans in my arc midi on a fan controller. At 40 to 60% or so they aren't very noisy and push a bunch of air. At full speed they are super loud and push *****-tons of air! I got them to be rad fans for when I go under water, they have the best static pressure I've ever seen.

The only bad thing I've ever heard about these fans are the noise, but with a fan controller that should be no problem. Do you experience any clicking with them?

EDIT:

If only the Midi could have a 120mm mount in the front, I would have bought the AP-15's as soon as I got the case. It is so much harder picking 140mm fans because there are less choices..

I also have another quick question.. if you had to choose between the AP-15 or Bgears for a rad, which would you pick in terms of performance?
