I'm looking for the best 120mm case fans. By best i mean air flow to noise ratio. I want to have a silent case but still cool. I don't overclock or anything but i want to have lowest temps for reliability purposes. If anyone has any recommendations as to what brands are quieter or not that would be helpful.

Thanks

The ones that I use all came with my case (250MM in front, 360MM on the side) but I do use a 120MM in the back: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6835129246

It works for me, it pumps LOADS of air, and it isn't too loud. (then again, I can sleep through anything, so it may or may not be too loud for you)

Yate-Loons are about the best bang for your buck IMHO, they offer a fair amount of air flow for their noise level, and best of all they are generally very cheap.

Thermaltake seems good to me. I had coolermaster before and the three fans were louder than the 6 I have now . Even the the 220 is quiet. The 120 on my big typhoon isn't even noticable compared to the graphics card.

It basically comes down to the ear of the beholder... I have used loads over the years and to me cheap ones and expensive ones (TT, Zalaman) can all be noisy or quiet...

try this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811999099

the fan holds to it's word as advertised (move a decent amount of air quietly) and cleaning the fan has never been easy
