What are some good additional case fans that i could add to my case for better airflow?
I will be using the hyper 212 evo for my cpu cooler on my i5 4670k.
-Thanks

well, the best case fans tend to be noctuas... just because of all the air they move and how they do it silently. just pick the size you want... and the type of power connector you want (4 or 3 pin). I have 3 in my case. thought i'd hate the color, but it turns out the color of those fans are so neutral you don't really notice them. (i have a black case with plenty of mesh and windows, so you can see the fans if you look for them)

Performance and non-expensive. Hmmmm!

Check cooler master series case fans in your case otherwise my recommendation has always been Corsair AF/SP series fans and Noctua fans.

Would this fan be a good choice for my Cooler master HAF 912? I believe the HAF 912 has room for 4 additional fans? correct me if i am wrong.
Would you personally recommend a different fan you use in your case?

This fan has speed of 2000RPM with 69CFM of air flow, a nice one with noise level of 19DBA. Good choice.

Check this one:

If you have no issue of so much noise coming out of your case then you can stick to whatever cheap option is available but if want good air flow say above 70CFM with quiet operations then you'll have to invest more.

I prefer my computer to run quiet most of the time, with the exception of my graphics card of course. Is 19dB pretty quiet? How much quieter can it get?
For the price i think the original fan i posted isn't bad. I haven't found any cheaper fans.

General rule is lower the dB or dBA, better the quietness. But you should also keep a look at CFM becuase higher the CFM, better air flow and cooling in the case.

Fan you posted is a good choice.

This fan gives only 42.58 CFM with 1200 RPM. Not that much good at air flow. Sorry.

For something cheap that would push some air I'd recommend the yate loons. What speed you get is up to you. Personally I'd grab either the mediums and run them full tilt or the highs and have the option to run them 7v or 12v while still pushing decent amounts of air.

Make sure you grab genuine yates though, quite a lot of fakes out there.

The stock fans in the HAF912 don't seem to push any air at all, if they were rated at 10cfm I wouldn't doubt it.
