    120mm Fans

    I'm looking at 120mm fans to go with a Thermalright XP-120. I want high performance but not at the cost of my ear drums .

    Any surgestions?
    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.

    For 120MM fans i wouldn't accept nothing less than a Panaflo. Their noise to CFM ratio is impeckable.

    Panaflo are highly rated. I reckon I shall get a pair for my radiator.

    Papst fans are the daddy.

    I have a pair on my radiator and one on my intake and the are brilliant, quiet but shift plenty of air.

    Silent X are nice, but pricey!

    SilenX 120mm @ 14dBA moves 58 CFM!

    Yeah, but SilenX will require modding to attach to the XP-120 since they revised it

    Im using a delta 120mm 199cfm fan coupled with a thermaltake fan controller. On the lowest setting its fairly quiet but on full? Well you have to hear it to believe it really.
    Still 28C idle temps are nice

    mate just bought a vantec stelth fan, was very very impressed with it, miles quieter than the supplied fan with the silverstond case he bought....
