    Default Favorite Case Fan!

    I wanted to see what everyone's favorite type of fan was. I just upgraded today to my Phantom 820, and the Nzxt fans in that case are absolutely amazing. I had no idea how different they could be. The noise and airflow are just great on them. I've learned a valuable lesson in that CFM and noise levels only mean so much from the manufacturer's spec page. It's only when you have them in your room that you really know what's great and what isn't.

    That being said, obviously, I love Nzxt. Especially their FZ series. Also, as much as I dislike the color schemes, my Noctua fans are downright amazing, and both brands easily top my favorites list.

    I'll give a shout out to Xigmatek for at least having purple LED fans, even if they aren't the greatest.

    Also, if you want to check out some shots of my new case, I updated my build log with the Phantom 820.

    Yep I cant say enough about NZXT especially the 820, and the Switch, were my very favorites they make a great product,
    and yes those new 200 mm fans push a lot of air and are very quiet as well

    Is there a case fan out there that is really the best fan for a case? Every fan maker say's they are the best. But how do we know just witch one is really the best? Unless you have someone that can do a fan review to compare all the top fans we wont really know witch one is the best. Take a case put a build in it. Install fan's in stock fan place's. Do sound test, air flow test. Do this with all the top brand fan's. Compare the test info to determen just who dose make the best fan's.
    Just my thought's.

    For looks and moving are I love the Enermax Cluster fans. I have some Noctuas as well, they are near silent moves a lot of air but the color theme restricts them to certain builds so I cant vote them at the top of my list. Same with some of the cougar fans.

    So for my second choice I will have to go with Phanteks PH-F140TS. For Style, near silent and air movement. Come in multiple color options to match any project. so

    Enermax Cluster UC-CL12
