    Question Hello. I am torn between these two fans on Scan

    Aerocool DS Edition 14cm Black Fan Dual Material/Colour FDB Fan 10.8dBA Retail
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/140mm...-108dba-retail

    VS

    Noctua NF-A14 FLX Case Fan
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/140mm...um-quality-fan

    I am tempted to go for both with e.g. 2x Aerocool as front intake and 2x Noctua as top exhaust.
    Plus any real world reason to replace stock rear exhaust?
    My case is the Corsair 450D.

    If you can live with the crappy colours the noctua's are basically the best. Or you can get the "industrial" ones- BUT be warned you NEED a fan controller that supports PWM with them because they are LOUD.

    @Marcvs

    I completely agree, Noctua are the better ones i have them on my h100 and they perform really well

    Or you can get the Noctua Redux ones, which are the exact same as the normal beige ones, but in nicer colours and without all the fancy accessories, so notably cheaper.

    Either way, I vote for Noctua too!!

    Another vote for Noctua.

    Just bought three Redux 120x120 to go in the front of my case.

    They will be getting controlled from a sys fan header on mobo
