Looking for a good quiet 120mm rad fan

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I am currently running yate loon high flows, but they are just too noisy and one of them is starting to rattle.

So I am looking for a quieter upgrade dont want to spend $30 on a fan but realize that with quality comes a bit of a price..

Any suggestions?

They will be pushing on a XSPC RX240

ap-15s arent even loud at all, in my opinion. Everyone's definition of loud is different, so I guess if you have a db range you are looking for that would be easier to recommend. However, gentle typhoons are good, either way.

Having just switched from Yates to AP14s. I can tell you they are SILENT and cool just as well. An added bonus is that they also draw less power.
