    I used the run Papst fans when I was running water cooling. I cant be bothered with all that now, so I sold them all. Damn good fans though, but Ive only ever used 120mm Papst, so theyre bound to be pretty silent.

    Is that a Silent Eagle?

    Scan have some new Sharkoon fans - a new range, look promising.

    Yep, its the 80mm silent eagle 2000 non-LED version. I dont want any stupid lights on it. Bargaioous at £3 I do believe.

    Bargain!

    I got a 80mm Silent Eagle 1000 for a similar price from ebay some time ago. Now that's what I call a silent fan , of course it doesn't shift much air.

    It's good to see another happy NorthQ user

    I bought a 120mm NorthQ with Ceramic Bearings and can't believe how quiet it is. I've compared it to Silent Eagle 1000 and Nexus 120mm fans.

    Yea, tried lots of different 120mm fans. NorthQ are by far the quietest.
