Best 80, 120, 140 mm fans under $10 each to install in CM 690 II Advanced?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for something in the title, and hopefully it doesn't make too much sound. The stock fans on the NZXT Apollo make me want to kill myself because of how loud they are, so nothing like that. Preferably from a known brand.

What do you guys recommend?

Yate Loon D12S, Zalman F3 and Arctic cooling F12.

There all cheap, the Yate Loon I know is quiet.

Not to sure about the others never had them someone else on here will have had them.

Depends on your standard of quiet, but you pay for the quality.

For quiet fans, stay under 1500rpm most definitely. Scythe, Noctua, and Noise Blockers all make great fans, but are also expensive.

I'd say an 800rpm or 1200rpm Scythe Slipstream would be your best bet at just over $10. But if you don't want to spend that much, you guy buy a low rpm Yate Loon to try since they're only ~$3.

Scythe Slipstreams 120mm. Youll probably want the 1200 or 1600 RPM version

I recommend the Akasa Viper. I just got one for my heatsink fan and love it. Great static pressure and CFM and whisper quiet. It is a little over $10, but not by much. It cost $11.95 at sidewindercomputers. ---> http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/akvi126928db.html

Of course I am no expert and this may not be a great case fan for all I know, so take that with a grain of salt. I know it is a PWM fan and I am not sure if you need adapters to plug into a 3 pin header or what.

agreed slipstreams are like $9 each on newegg if you buy more than two, they get like 110cfms!!! at around 37dba. they are simply the best bang for your buck. put 3-4 in your case and I guarantee you will see a multiple degree drop in temps in your case.

if your willing to spend a little more thermaltake af0026's rock they are 11 bucks each, go up to 97cfms 33dba and have adjustable speeds already on them, I have 4 of them and I love them becasue I have the speeds turned all the way down and they still pump out alot of air. and for suicide runs and stress testing I just them up and get an easy extra 3 degrees on my cpu cooler

140mm x5 (1xFront, 2xTop, 2xSide) - Prolimatech Vortex

120mm x4 (1xBottom, 1xHDD, 1xRear, 1x5.25 Bays) - Scythe Kama Flex

80mm x1 - It has to be 15mm depth, so you have these choices: COOLER MASTER R4-SPS-20AK-GP or the Evercool EC8015M12CA

I know the fans I have recommended are over your budget, but they are the lowest priced, highest quality fans I can find. I know the 80mm fans are both pretty much fail, but options are limited.

Then again, just get your flavor of Yate Loons for the 120mm and 140mm fans. They're cheap and reliable. Just be sure to lube them every once in a while.

Look at item 1 in my sig, then click on the fan links and compare specs. At 110cfm, that 1900rpm 25mm Slip Stream supposedly puts out more air than a 2600rpm 38mm San Ace 9G1212H101, which puts out 99cfm. Sanyo Denki sells to industrial customers, who can check on the specs. Most consumers cannot. So whose specs do you trust?

Vortez.net uses the Coolink SWiF2 120P PWM fan as one of their standard fans. It is usually the one that cools the best (as an example, see this review). At $9.99, it fits your price criterion.

You can compare performance and noise of 120mm fans in item 1 of my sig. You can look at 140mm fan performance in item 2 of my sig. There are lots of superb 140mm fans out there, but aside from the Yate Loons, they are most more than $10. That said, Yate Loons are pretty good. When I gave my daughter the choice of all of my 140mm fans for the front of her case, she listened to them, felt their output, and decided on a Yate Loon lowspeed fan, the D14SL-124B.

Aside from the SVC page, you can look here, especially here.

Good luck. Have fun.
