Whats the quietest 120mm fan out there? I got a sunon with mt Aqua Stealth kit but that sucker is LOUD, puts the delta 38 to shame.

Try 2 Sunon 120s...I have 2 on the intake (and 4 80s through the drive bays and 2-92s moving things around and out) and my computer fairly howls. I have heard good things about the Panaflos baing quiet, but I think thay are a little hard to find.

I just got some deltas in the other day... 120mm model number WFB1212m and they are pretty quiet, I think around 30 db or something like that.

TT120- I got them off of someone on ebay a couple weeks ago. I just happened to see them on there and bought all three from the guy for $20 bucks.

I dunno if anyone on the web sells them or not. You might want to start at the delta website if your really interested. Im sure with all the fans being sold these days someone carrys them.

Arrg never mind, they are not as quiet as I thought, just looked up the specs on deltas websight, and they quote 34dba for the WFB1212m 120mm fan.

Sorry, I was just going off what the guy posted them as.
However, when I plug them up, they are pretty darn quiet.

I just got 2 of the panaflow 120's from 2cooltek and they are a lot quiter than any std 80 fan I have seen.
Oh yea he has the quiet 80's too. I am going to quieten this damn case of mine one way or the other.

One thing these are some big THICH fans. must be 2 inches wide. no I didn't measure them but they are bigger than any std 120 I have seen. So make sure you have the room.

I have one on the front of my case with my radiator anyone got any ideas of how to cut a door in the front of the plastic so I can put a filter on the thing and have easy access to clean it?
Hey I can cut one and put some hinges but am afraid it will look like hell.

thanks for any good ideas.

The Paniflo are known to be quiet. They have a L, M, H, models. The L is 69cfm with a 30dba level. Overpressure your system.
