Recommendation for case fans - no RGB ?

Hello,

ordered a Phanteks Enthoo 791 (aka Enthoo Lux 2).
It can fit 120 mm and 140mm case fans.

Would like to get PWM controlled case fans for it.

Can you recommend reliable products?
Main goal: silent and known for long term stablility of the bearing.
No RGB needed.

Not required for radiators. For those i got high static pressure fans already.

Thanks for your help.

Ether the PWM gentle typhoon, or the NF A12x25.


The DC Gentle Typhoons are also much cheaper, I have no trouble controlling them with motherboard.


Looking at the same case as you.

Thank you all.
Ordered the Noctua ones. Hope the reputation of the brand is valid as I tend to use a PC for 5 to 8 years. I they don't fail in that time while another brand does i spend less than buying twice. If they fail then I spend to much. Will know in a few years ;-)

You would have spent even less by not changing the fans for the sake of changing fans. The Luxe 2 includes F140MPs, which are very good fans in general, and extremely good in this application. You have essentially paid money for a sidegrade.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Assuming case comes with 3-4 stock fans, what cairlatano said is true. I say 'assuming' because while all previous case came with stock fans Luxe 2 / 719 does not show that fans are included in pics or specs. While 140mm Phanteks case fans look like PH-F140MP, they are really MP impeller on/in PH-F140SP fan motor and housing. They are not PWM speed controlled but variable voltage control works very well. No reason to spend money on fans with similar performance if case comes with the MP impeller fans.


Edit: Talked to my Phanteks rep and Luxe 2 / 719 comes with no fans.

Really? That's messed up. The initial promos showed included F140MPs.
