    the fans will be going on the side window panel
    where their was a 8cm fan when purchased fan seems pretty quiet but a good 12cm would be preferable.
    I put an old (v loud) 12cm fan on but it was noisier than all the rest put together
    Akasa 8cm i have pretty good so could go with them,never heard of yate loons b4 now seems they are quite top end tho.What about coolermaster,or the xclio 16 balde ones?

    Artic Cooling 12 is awesome..
    And very cheap for the price.
    Only one problem, it can only be used as a blower fan. Lol.

    If you don't need that much air flow, 7V or 5V them (try it on your old one).

    Just be careful what you do with the molex after it's been converted, I've blown up a DVD drive with careless plugging (5V in the 12V line and 12V in the 5V line = small puff of smoke )
