Stuck between 2 different fans

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking to replace the stock 200mm fans on my 600T case. I am finding the fans to be a little loud, and the lights to be annoying.

I've narrowed my search down to 2 different fan models, and torn between them.

Scythe SY1225SL12L

Nexus BASIC D12SL-12

I am leaning a little more towards the Scythe one, mainly because it's about the same CFM and about 8 dBA quieter.

If anyone know of any other quiet fans, please let me know.

The Noctua NF-P12 looks nice, but I need 3 fans, and I don't have the budget to spend $75 on fans.

Go with the Scythe, they move more air and do so with less noise

Scythe hands down.. the sflex, slipstreams and the one that came with my old scythe mugen 2 rev.b totally owned lol. They push so much air for so little noise.. excellent amount of static pressure.

+1 for Scythe's. I've had both and I just care for the "tone" of Scythes more. Also, as you've noted, there are a bit cheaper.
