    Could someone recommend a couple of decent case fans? I need one at the front to suck and one at the back to blow oreermises: ..doesn't have to have fancy gadgets and temp readings ect, just quiet and efficient

    I have an Antec case fan, and its quite silent. A freind of mine has a couple thermaltake fans, they are quiet, but dont hardly move any air. I like antec, quiet and moves good air. I also have two Vantec tornados, but they sound like a vaccuum cleaner on nitrous.

    I prefer AeroCool because the blade shape helps keep the noise down. Panaflo by Panasonic is very popular for keeping noise in check but it comes in only one style: black.

    I have the 21 dollar antec 120mm (sorry, not 80mm), but it dont move much more air than all the 80mm ones ive seen. Its quiet and has been running non stop for over 1 year. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...129-033&depa=0

    I use Delta Fonsan DFB0812L.

    I buy them by the case.



    I get them from a local wholesale electronics outlet. I don't know if you can get the same ones in your area or not.

    Very quiet and reliable.

    yeah i got one, not the choice for quietness
    neither is the thermaltake smart case fan II...
    ...its just barely quieter than a tornado, maybe by about 6-8 db, if that
    i got one on my CPU now, and it sounds like someones got a cats balls in a vice

    but i like vantec & thermaltake fans though, theyre pretty solid
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    do you need to attach your own molex plugs to those? or is it just in that picture that the molex is missing?

    No the ones I have all have small connectors on them.

    I'll try to post a picture (after my supper).

    Which out of all the above would you say shifts the most air?

    (Ive got an old 98 machine next to me with no case fans and just a bog standard heatsink fan thats slowed considerably over the past 6 years, you have to have headphones in if you want to listen to anything on low volume, its a good job theres sod all in the way of specs in there ) - It's not for that machine though
