    Scan's 120mm Fan Collection

    I'm after two 120mm fans to go with the Akasa Eclipse I'll be finally getting this week, but I'm not sure which to go for. I was all set with some Akasa Ambers but Scan seem to have gotten a few new fans in stock, so what do y'all recommend?

    Linky here <-- for the lazy people.

    Depends what you want mate-

    PERFORMANCE-

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=192074

    SILENCE-

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=147111

    In the middle-

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=154681

    The silverstone's fan controller can be put in the front bay on your eclipse. The ambers are nice reliable fans.

    BUT I reccomend these-

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Yate-Loon-D12S...QQcmdZViewItem

    Or

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Yate-Loon-D12S...QQcmdZViewItem

    They are the EXACT SAME AS NEXUS FANS! And the seller is one of the best. Ask him for a deal outside ebay and he will knock 10% off too!

    I've got 2 of these: http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_2578.html

    Work a treat, they're pretty much inaudiable at 5V but they ALWAYS start at 5V. They don't move lots of ait on 12v but they're still fairly quiet at 12

    £24 for 2 fans seems a bit much, go for the D12-SL12 I mentioned, exact same fan in black. Save yourself some money!

    But yeah, they are good fans!

    another vote for the loonies from silencio_777 on fleabay. top seller, and even with postage on top, they are still cheaper than you can buy the equivalent for over here.

    at full blast, the yate loons arent silent, but if you put a 7v resistor (also available from that chap on fleabay) or a fan controller, you can make them pleasingly silent. i understand that the yate loons, even though they look identical, run faster that the nexus, and so are a touch louder, but also chuck out a bit more air.

    I've got a Blue LED Yate Loon SM and it undervolts very nicely. I think it starts under 5v. Also have a SL Black fan.

    Basically I can't tell the difference (noise wise) between the SM and SL - both are undervolted.

    One thing I did notice with the Blue LED fan - it made some noise (not sure if it was bearing or something else) when in the horizontal position as a PSU fan. One of the guys on silentpcreview had the same problem.

    Last question, will I be able to run a Yate Loon on just the 3 pin connector?

    I'd argue for the FM121 from silverstone, at minimum on the fan controller (which is provided) they are silent - you literally cannot hear them above the samsung p120 hdd in my system. Turn em up and you get more noise, but lots of air pushed - they are the best compromise, you can run them noisy when needed (summer, max oc etc) and slower when theyre not, especially useful if you enable cool'n'quiet on your machine.

    The final choice is up to you, but after using them, its what I'd chose again (and I have just ordered 2 more)

    Can you hook two of the SilverStones up to just one of the provided fan controllers?

    Also, I was pondering over just using SpeedFan...
