Teq..

I'm currently looking for case fans for my new computer...

I'm not into "lighting" my case...so a standard case fan will do...

Right now this is my first choice...

<A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?description=1..." target="_new">http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?description=1...;/A>

I mean for $6.00 I don't see how I can beat it...for the CFM/DBA....I found the DBA directly off Sunon's website...

It's 39CFM/32DBA...

I've just never heard of Sunon and was wondering if you had...

And if you have any recommendations....

I'm also looking at the VANTEC AeroFlow VA4-C7040 for a CPU Cooler <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?description=3..." target="_new">http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?description=3...;/A>

Any thoughts on this one as well?

Sunon makes good fans. As for the Vantec cooler, search the board a bit, and in the past few weeks you should find a few people talking about their experiances with those coolers

sunon is a well known fan maker, as lonemagi said, and you probably can't beat $6/fan, and those specs are decent
the vantec aeroflow is a good heatsink, but people complain about the TMD fans breaking
search this board or others for details on the phenomenon

As the others have already opined, Sunon is a very well known fan maker. They also produce "branded" fans that are marketed by several other companies... including Spire and Thermalright.

BUT...it has been my experience that while they are not loud fans, they are <i>irritating</i> fans... the high speed ones produce this whining noise that, while not loud, is enough to drive a person to drink. It's like being in the same room with someone going "zzzzzzzzzzzzz" under their breath 8 hours a day.

Lately I've been experimenting with Panasonic fans which are marketed under the "Panaflow" name at the recommendation of several here. They are almost silent and (as I found out when I stupidly got my fingers into one) they have a lot of torque which helps keep their speed constant.

I haven't worked eith the Vantec fans... They aren't available from any of my usual suppliers, so I can't help you on the second one.

like the previous guy said, i have personally tested out a fair handful of fans...
generics, enermax, panaflo, pabst, thermaltake, delta... and for low to medium speeds my favoured fans are the Panaflo series.
they just lack the ball bearing BUZZZZZ that all the others have as they use slieve bearings.
the 80mm 2000rpm panaflo is damn near silent, and the 3200rpm panaflo is far quieter than any other ~3000rpm fan ive heard.
