    Quiet fans for PC-78

    Right, I'm building myself a file server using Lian-Li's PC-78 as a case. I need to find some fans to go in it. As it's only going to be hosting files and won't be over worked airflow is not a primary concern, but noise most certainly is.

    Just wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions for which fans to use. I'll need 6x80mm and 2x120mm case fans. I will be hooking them all upto some form of fan speed regulator also.

    Thanks

    Do you need all those fans? I would just get 2 80mms and 2 120mms instead tbh.

    It's a pity you can't get one (massive) 160mm fan to replace the 4 x 80mm at the front. AFAIK you can't get DC fans that big (and AC fans are a *bit* dangerous...)

    Just looking at maplins now to see if you can get anything...

    Delta do 172mm fans but they don't have box frames like normal - they're cylindrical.

    PDF link for 25.4mm deep fans:

    PDF link for 50.8mm deep fans:

    http://www.delta.com.tw/products/dcf.../EFB172508.pdf

    Best one there is 325cfm (though it's only available as a 24V)
