Nexus fans are basically cherry-picked Yate Loons that spins at lower RPMs and are quiet: http://www.svc.com/d12sl-12-bw.html Scythe Fans are pretty quiet as well, I believe I have the following one (I don't really feel like taking my PC apart): http://www.svc.com/sy-1225sl12l.html Lastly, I recommend the following Noctua Fan; Noctua has developed a reputation for quiet fans with their unique designs: http://www.svc.com/nf-s12-800.html quaduser July 23, 2008 7:47:15 PM I have the same question as well... except I'm confused by 3 vs 4 pin fans. Does one allow RPM control and the other not? If so, does the CPU have have to have 4 pins? I already own a Scythe S-FLEX fan (an E and an F type).. can I use one of them to replace this fan? I think both are 3 pins.. but have a 3 - 4 pin converter packaged with them I think. jaguarskx a b ) Power supply July 23, 2008 10:08:46 PM 4-pins connects directly to the 12v rail and will not benefit from any fan control that is part of the chipset's BIOS. The CPU fan does not have to be 3-pin, but if you want the BIOS or SpeedFan to control the RPM, then it will have to be. chookman July 24, 2008 6:56:15 AM Seems im repeating others but, Scythe, Late Yoon and ive actually got a few Arctic Cooling fans that are great. jpbg July 24, 2008 9:25:55 PM i would go with the yate loon but they they have the 2 ball bearing i think so doesn't that mean that they don't work well/last long when horizontal? jpbg July 24, 2008 9:43:17 PM ive come to the conclusion that with out money being a factor this is the best fan to get after checking out spr as far as case fans im sticking with my yate loon medium speed fans those things are amazing http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
