Recommend me a slim fan.

Looking for recommendations on slim 120mm or multiples of smaller fans that are 20mm thick or less.

Not quite up to snuff on my slim fan options. I am an avid Delta fan user so the norm for me is 38mm thick.

Delta are best performance fan, but high noise is their problem. Normal fans are 25mm thick. There are few 15mm thickness fan also available.

The variance between models is smaller with slim fans. So they're all about the same and you should go with a brand with build quality you trust more like the Noctua. I have no complaints of their 15mm.

I don't know. Some guy.

I'll second the NF-A12x15. It manages to have 1.53mm H2O at full speed, which is as much or more than many 25mm thick fans do. Having decent static pressure specifications means fan has the ability to overcome the resistance of things like grills, cables, etc. in it's flow path.

Saw a reliable review that placed the NF-A12x15 at the same level as the NF-F12.
