    LianLi A16 case w/ 3 stock 120x25mm fans...one front "in", one rear "out", one low-side "out"- lines up w/ the video card...

    About to order these 3 fans and Sunbeam/LianLi fan controller:
    2 Scythe S-FLEX™ "G" 1900rpm/35dba/75cfm
    1 Noctua NF-P12......... 1300rpm/20dba/54cfm

    Questions:

    Rired48,
    Welcome...those are good fans, I use S-Flex & Kama, they are pretty quite fans. S-Flex have fluid bearing therefore they are last longer than any ball or sleeve bearing.
    My S-Flex is 1200rpm and when I crank it to max speed you actualy can hear the noises but if you keep it at 1000rpm or under then you're hardly hear it.

    So event with good quiet fans at high speed still noisey therefore the 1900rpm will pretty loud if you crank it to the max.

    I will go with option #1
