    Which 120mm for a XP120?

    I'm trying to cut the noise from my computer down a bit. At the moment I have a YS-Tech 120mm which is 45db 105 cfm.

    I've been looking for another fan, but there are so many to pick from, could someone please recommend a fan for my HS. Will a 37 cfm still cool the cpu ok?

    Other fans in the case are

    120mm 7v side blowhole
    2 x 80mm 1 intake, 1 exhust
    92mm 7v top blowhole

    gfx card is a X1950.

    I'm guessing the bulk of the noise will be from my 120mm on the HS. Anything else I could do to cut the noise?

    Cheers

    Nice looking fan

    Would that still cool the CPU fine?

    Yeah it'll cool it no problem, I've got two and they're pushing a nice bit of air around with the added bonus of hardly making a noise.

    Recommendation came from good ol' Custom PC.

    They sounds very good indeed Will get 2 of the 120mm to replace my current 2, and see what difference that makes.
