    Default high quality 120mm fans

    OK, i want to put a huge list together of 120mm fans you would like me to test. List anything you like the sound of and i'll compile a list and try to get them in.

    Here's a few on my list:

    Zalman ZM-F3
    Scythe S-Flex 1600rpm
    Sharkoon Eagle 2000rpm
    AcoustiFan DustProof 12025B
    Arctic Cooling Arctic Fan 12025L
    Noctua NF-S12 1200RPM
    Yate Loon D12SL-12
    bgear b-cool 120mm
    bgear b-ice 120mm

    There should end up being at least 30 on the list, so let's get searching to find the ultimate low noise fan.

    What about the Bluegears B-Cool 120 Fan. I'm a fan of those fancy models that project your case temp and the RPM onto the blades. You can also change the LED colour (ooohhhh).

    Some others i can think of would be the:

    Thermaltake Smart Fan II 120mm
    Delta 120mm Ultimate High Speed Fan TFB1212GHE
    Nexus Real Silent 120mm Case Fan Black/White

    i got 3 of them in my case... ill give you a quick review. the lowest setting is very quiet, you can hardly hear it. the second setting is well its not bad decent noise and good air movement the last setting is loud and moves a lot of air.

    Seeing this thread is active again, I should say that I just got one of those Bluegears B-Cool 120mm fans. It projects the temps, RPM and either the word Cool, Warm or Hot on to the fan. It also does this in different ways, sometimes it's static, other times it spins around. Very Cool.

    i was looking at buying an 80mm version of that fan. i figure it would be great for reading ambiant temps.

    you kno what a good fan for me is a fan that spins 2500rpm+ makes a hell of a lot of noise because i know its on and working...and cooling my case well.... and lasts at least 3 years.... those antec fans are pretty swell but a $20 price tag is a bit much for a piece of plastic

    I picked up some Silverstone 110 cfm 120's and on low they are inaudible but on high they are louder than my shop vac :'[ BUT they have a ton of force, the blades are about 1/2 inch wider than most so they are awesome to use on a rad where they have resistance to the air they are moving
