    Fans

    Hi people, I am looking for 2 x 92mm and 1 x 120mm fans for my Antec P150.

    What would people recommend, I am drawn towards the sharkoon for the 120mm, and as for the 92mm I would like one pretty quiet, under 20dBa if possible. Please post some suggestions with links here.

    Cheers.

    Recommend Acoustifan dustless which are good, but they dont perform as well as the "normal" Acoustifans so depends on how hot your case gets. Both really quiet, especially mounted on the mountings http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/pro...fanaccessories

    Yate Loon 92mm from Silencio (he is a recommended ebayer). Mention SilentPCReview.com (spcr) for a 10% discount.

    That fan comes with rubber mounts I think.

    Custom PC did a Fan Labs last month where they reviewed 55 fans and rated for airflow and noise. There are some surprises!

    Best 92mm fixed speed was the Akasa Amber92 and for the 92mm variable speed the AcoustiFan DustProof AFDP-9225B

    Best 120mm fixed speed was the Sharkoon Silent Eagle 1000 and for variable speed Zalman ZM-F3

    Full review is in the Mag, but a summary version is online. Check out at www.custompc.co.uk go to Labs and you can't miss it.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.
