Now that I was lead in the right direction by Leaps-From-Shadows, I have decided I want to replace the stock fan that comes with the CM Hyper 212+.

With that being said, what I am looking for is...

1. Great Air Flow

2. Very Quiet

3. PWM

4. Blue LED

If I can get all of these in one that is great, I am will to live without the LED though.

THANKS!

Scythe Slipstream/Kaze Jyuni are great pwm fans but no LED I think. Akasa also have PWM fans w/ blue LEDs, they're great too. Have a look at this site:

Quietest fans.
The CM R4 sickleflows are not quiet i have one.
Great airflow though and they are cheap.
Scythe S-Flex F/G's or Thermalright.

Choose at least a 1600rpm fan for best cooling results on a 212+.

Will the Scythe S-Flex plug into the 4 pin CPU header so that my motherboard can control the speed?

S-Flex are not pwm fans if you want pwm control buy a similiar Kama Flex fan.
Personally i don't use pwm fans on my coolers .
I use Thermalright fans but if didn't i would use Scythe S-Flex's.Bought Thermalrights cuz they are just as good and cheaper where i shop.
Pwm isn't a concern if you have high quality FBD fans which are quiet to begin with at full rpm's.
Pwm is useful for not so quiet fans imo.

Yes,even fans with variable speeds that are 3 pin can still be adjusted thru the mobo.
