Newegg
What should I get? I want the best option for a price/performance low-noise setup.

The apevia is pretty good. It could get loud if you have more than one.

I have 9 of them in my case and it's loud as hell. I just used a fan controller to keep my sanity.

otherwise, just get that antec one if you dont have a fan controller, their 3 speed ones and their nice and long lasting

I came on here to ask the same question. I hear the Antec fan doesnt have very bright leds? My blue ones are nice and bright but I heard the red isnt bright at all.

OK, I think I'll get the apevia.

I seriously want to buy a 220cfm Delta fan for my future TRUE. Then do a push-pull config. :p 

Problem is, each of those fans costs $30 and they take up 22W. My fan controller allows 20W per channel.

Yea, same but theyre not worth it....just get 2 Ultra Kazes.

I thought you were getting the Nirvana :p 
January 31, 2008 8:48:48 PM

Heh. I do preach that the Nirvana is better, but I decided to change my mind to get an TRUE since I want to do a push pull config which = lower noise.

And you wanted to use Deltas for that.....for some reason I feel like that doesnt work :kaola:

Yes you heard me correctly. Push pull config is more efficient than a single fan, thus you can lower the rpms of the fan which = lower noise.

As for the Delta fans, it's just a dream ;)

I know the whole push pull thing.....Im doing it with Kazes remember unless I do WCing
January 31, 2008 8:56:52 PM

I'll probably do it with the yat loons.

cheap way out :D 

If I get some cash I wanna WC just to see how far an E2180 can go.
Hopefully my dad will find someone who wants a new PC :D
