For some folks, choosing a case fan is easy—if your case didn't come with one, the cheapest model at the local computer store will do. For others, however, fan selection is a far more complicated affair that can involve hours of reading through specifications and noise testing results. For our forum tidings post this week, we've picked out a thread that seems to fall in the latter category.
In the thread, TR gerbil todd says he needs a hand picking out some quality, low-noise 120mm fans. Todd intends to mount the fans inside his Rosewill case, which has three 120mm fan emplacements and houses his Athlon 64 X2 4600+, mid-range video card, and a pair of hard drives. So far, folks have suggested looking into Scythe S-Flex SFF-21F and Yate Loon fans. TR mod SpotTheCat also gave an in-depth reply discussing the advantages of fans from different manufacturers.
What's your preference when it comes to fans? Do you favor high cooling performance or low noise levels, and which models have served you best? Feel free to contribute to todd's thread with your insights. As always, don't forget to register a forum account first if you don't already have one.
