Looking for some advice on case fans

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am looking to buy:
2- 120mm White LED fans
3- 120mm Orange LED fans
2- 140mm Orange LED fans
Orange cable sleeving
2- white or orange SATA cables
and a Coolermaster Hyper 212+

-All on as few sites as possible (hopefully one) to save shipping costs

Now I was also wondering what kind of Fans you guys liked for Bright colors, like LED/UV heard something about cathode (I don't really know what I am talking about)

any help is appreciated

I'll post pics of my completed case!

Well, I like a glowing case but throwing LED tubes in there seems strange to me.

And my case doesn't have any right now, so I gotta add fans all around it
I meant to post this in the Fan section but turns out I had one too many Tabs open =P

120mm White
Xigamatek Crystal Series White LED Fan 12.99 each before shipping
1500 rpm, 68 CFM, Long-Life Sleeve Bearing
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27385

Cooler Master Silent 120mm White LED Fan 9.95 each before shipping
1200 rpm, 42 cfm, Sleeve Bearing (Likely a bit quieter than the Xigamatek)
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=2205

Now I'm afraid I couldn't find any orange led fans but here's some other options with different colors.

120mm Red LED Fans
Xigamatek Crystal Series Red LED Fan 12.99 each before shipping
1500 rpm, 68 CFM, Long-Life Sleeve Bearing
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27386

120mm Blue LED Fan
Coolermaster Silent 120mm LED Fans 2 in 1 pack. 14.95 before shipping
1200 rpm, 39 cfm, Sleeve Bearing
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=21882

Nor could I find any orange led 140mm fans but here are some 140mm white led fans.

140mm White LED Fans
Xigamatek 140mm White LED Fan 14.99 each before shipping
1000 rpm, 60 cfm, Long-Life Sleeve Bearing
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27388

Akasa 140mm Ultra Quiet White LED Fan 10.95 each before shipping
1200rpm, 56 cfm, Sleeve Bearing
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27427

How do you plan on mounting all these fans? Keep in mind sleeve bearing fans won't perform optimally if mounted in a horizontal fashion and you might want to invest in non-sleeve bearing fans for those you plan on mounting horizontally.

120mm Non-Sleeve Bearing White LED Fan
Aerocool Shark Series 120mm White Edition 15.99 each before shipping
1500/800rpm (Comes with resistor), 82/32 cfm, Fluid Dynamic Bearing
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=29789

Couldn't find a 140mm fan that offered leds plus a non-sleeve type of bearing but here's a non-led one.

140mm Non-Sleeve Bearing Fan
Aerocool Shark Series 140mm Black Edition 16.99 each before shipping
1500/800rpm (Comes with resistor), 96/50 cfm, Fluid Dynamic Bearing
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=28570

Perhaps you might want to reconsider your color scheme if you don't want to resort to led strips or the like? (At least for the orange)

I found a nice looking orange sleeving kit but admittedly I've never sleeved things myself.

Orange Sleeving Kit 14.95 before shipping
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=3452

Here's an orange sata cable, I'm sure they have a white one as well.

Orange Sata Cable .75 before shipping

And google shopping for a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ 27 shipped

Anything else I can help with?

WOW Thank You!!

And only 1 of the 120mm fans is going to be horizontally mounted,
although I do insist on some orange fans, looks like ill have to search around for a site with Orange fans and maybe some colored sata cables and hyper.

So which fan Is brighter, the Xigmatek or the Coolermasters?
Or is it hardly noticeable?

What about these fans here? They are much cheaper but are they a lower quality fan do you guys know?

Xigamatek makes some orange fans but they still have white leds.

Otherwise I think brightness would be similar.

And the fans you linked I'm sure would perform decently, pretty good price for a basic sleeve bearing fan though.
