120mm case fan recommendations

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just ordered my case (HAF 912), cooler (H50) and MOBO (UD3R) for my first build. I read somewhere that the tubes on the Corsair prevents the installation of a top 200mm fan, but will accommodate a single 120mm I would also like to install a fan on the side panel.

I will do some modest over-clocking say 3.4/6 GHz on my i7 920 my card is already rather cool running so I need a fan that will move decent air but runs pretty quiet.

Right now I am leaning towards Gelid Solutions or Scythe (Sp?) any other suggestion? Also if there is a better fan to replace stock on the cooler that would be welcomed also.

Thanks!

According to the excellent testing done in the link below you will want some gentle typhoons, 1450 rpm or 1800rpm models.
