In my experience, Nocutas may not always be the quietest fan for a given rpm range, but they are usually the most pleasant fans to listen to if you have to hear them. Plus that 6 year warranty man, you can't beat it.

Aesthetically: Do you care about the color if you can't see them? I'm not sure how much of the fans you can see through the grills on a Caseab case but if they aren't RGB or light by some other means can you really see them?

I totally side with you on the Price thing, around $30 USD per fan is nuts but the quality is worth it in my opinion. "Buy once, cry once" as the saying goes.

I'm biased as I have been using Noctuas for over 5 years now and I don't plan to stop so you may want to take my input with a grain of salt.

The colour isn’t that much of an issue, I’d grab them either way. The cost is going to make me wait considering I’ll likely upgrade all 24 at once. It would nice if they were a different colour that brown clashes with everything, but then again it’s distinct and you know it’s a Noctua when you see it.
I went from upgrading my GPU at the start of the year to now only having the fans and a pair of pumps left over. I’ll need a bit of tome to recover and upgrade the fans.
All 24 with taxes I’m look at over 1k.

I've used and tested lots of fans and Phanteks PH-F120MP and PH-F140MP are probably my favorites. Low noise .. and pleasant sound when they are running fast enough to hear combined with resonable price, even lower priced on special in 2-packs and 3-packs. I'm in Europe so prices may be different where you are, but they might be worth a look.

NOT 100% sure on this one but it is highly rated: Silent typhoons, tho they may be hard to find as they are no longer being produced.
The Nidecs are still made, since when did Nidec stop making fans? You only can't buy them easily which was always an issue with any industrial product. If you want to buy 1000 or 10k of them I'm sure they will sell them.

I would not even consider Noctua and the like due to their insane price. They offer same quality, same warranty with sometimes slightly better performance/noise but for 5x price with a puke color scheme.

Hi there

Personally running 9*Phanteks PH-F120MP, 3*Noiseblocker eLoop 120mm, 6*Corsair ML120 and 18*Noiseblocker BlackSilent Pro PL2

But have tried like Noctua A12x25, NF-F12 ,BeQuiet Silent Wings 3 or Pure Wings and Vardar F3 1850RPM

Noctua are my favourites,but they're expensive, Phanteks PH-F120MP are my another fans which are my another favourites, great fans for money and if you are running fans at 1000-1200RPM then they're great sounding fans, noisier than Noctua, Noiseblocker BlackSilent Pro PL2 are too nice sounding fans, just have bad luck with them,two of them started make unusual noise and RMA have been only option, Corsair ML120 hard to say if I would recommend them,3 of 6 fans Corsair replaced have been replaced under warranty,BeQuiet Silent Wings 3 nice sounding fans but expensive and beyond 1300-1500RPM they can be noisy

EK Vardar F3 1850RPM these fans I just can't or wouldn't touch or recommend, bearing noise or noise around 800-950RPM have been awful and hated these fans plus high starting draw can be issue for Aquaero

Nidec Servo Gentle Typhoon not sure, but these fans have high starting draw up to 0.53A and not sure if I would run more than 6 on one header/output on Aquaero, if you are running Aquaero 5 series then you are too limited by max draw at 1.5-1.65A,I know its start up draw but at this start up yours fans would be running at max speed and can trip protection on Aquaero

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

Corsair ML Fans (Magnetic Levitation). They’re awesome, but, expensive.

I had some noctuas but returned them. They were ok when idling but too loud when working hard. Ended up with ek furious varders both 120's and 140's. I run them from 45% and up.
I would have bought the gentle typhoons if they were available.
Maybe I have been given the wrong Noctua fans from the shop (twice) but they said they were good and quiet and I found different at my heat levels so I won't be trying them again.

Here's another vote for silent wings 3. Just make sure you create a gasket of sorts around the fans to seal the airflow in.
