    Case fans suggestions and advice please!

    Hey guys, well i've moved my system into a p180 case, and the fans that come with the case are actually quite good. Does anyone know where stocks the antec tri cool fans? So i can add one more for the intake. If not what 120mm fans would you recommend that are quiet and shift a bit of air, i don't have a fan controller, i have a zalman fan mate though. The tri cools have a little switch so you can choose Low medium or high which i liked.

    I also need a 80mm fan for the vga duct in my case because i recently opened it up and my 7800 was well warm, even the ram heat spreader thing on the back was quite hot to touch.

    Thanks

    I have an antec tri-speed which has just come out of my SLK3000B case (bought it last week so it's brand new) - would you be interested in taking it off me? It's plain black. £6 delivered and it's yours.

    I replaced it with Akasa Ultra Quiet 120mm fans just in case you were wondering.

    Just thought I'd say the Akasa 120mm Ultra Quiet is rated at 18db and 44cfm...at overclockers (yuck, i know)...

    I have always been a fan of panaflo i have 2 x 80mm in the front, in the blow hole and the rear exhaust, and you just cant hear them, they push a lot of and air and imo are the most silent fans ive ever heard, my gfx card is the most noisiest thing in my case atm.

    I have Yate Loon slow and medium 120mm fans. Also have a couple of Aerocool 120mm fans.

    My SilenX 14dba 120mm fans are gathering dust.

    The Yate Loon are probably best as slow them down (very quiet) with the Fanmate and crank them up to provide more airflow. Aerocool are good as well but not much airflow at full voltage.

    SilenX - IMHO they are overrated and certainly not 14dba.
