    Good 80 mm fan

    I want to change the fan on my heatsink (slk800) to something quieter with good cfm any suggestions. ATM I have a Thermaltake smartfan2 and I'm fed up with pc sounding like a dyson. So summit quiet thta still cools well

    Umm, he said quiet... I think these fans might be considered quiet if you were standing about 3km away...

    52.5dB? That's extracting the urine! Not much quieter than concorde when she used to take off over our office (next to Terminal 4).

    Vantec stealth's ??

    See www.overclockers.co.uk

    I'm running 2 X 80mm and they sound quiet enough to me

    I had a Vantec, wasn't as quiet as it claimed, I swear!

    Might have been coz it was a 60mm one though...

    panaflo are good but the papst are as well - usually a few for sale in different spots on ebay. Bought a few and they're really solid, well built and very quiet. Too bloody expensive to buy new though.

    I'm using the Pabst Lo-Noise 80mm fan with my SLK-800, good quality fan, good compromise between dba & CFM.
    I've heard good things about the Vantec Stealths but have never tried them.
    Panaflo are excellent.
    Even the cheapo YS-Tech is quite good, though noisier than the Pabst.

    Vantec Stealths are damn good. Very quiet aswell, I got both of them running on an AeroGate II and you can hardly hear them sometimes
    I got 2x80mm exhausts and they pretty much rule. Sturdy build aswell, don't vibrate much so thats an added bonus.
    £9.34 for 1 at Overclock.co.uk which ain't great but you can probably find a couple on ebay or ebuyer.
    Hope this helps

    Cheap fans are all well and good but I suggest paying the extra and getting a good quality ball bearing fan, it will last a hell of a lot longer, also sleeve bearing fans cant be mounted at the top of cases only upright as its knackers up the bearing or something apaprently

    If that's true it will depend on which way you have it blowing - in/down would be the only way I'd imagine. Think about sleeve bearing CPU fans in desktop cases. They blow down.
