120mm case fan that is whisper quiet

Hi guys,

Can u recommend a 120mm case fan that is whisper quiet and great coolers as well. The best I can get my hands on : ) Need 3x.


I have Antec fans that came installed in the case and they did a job 24/7 for 3 years.

They (Antec)cannot be plugged in the motherboard as they are IDE Power Male to 2 Female connectors.



Thanx a lot.

  1. thermaltake isgc fan 12 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106133&Tpk=isgc%20fan

    Have 4 of them and can hear my harddrives spin up and clicking.

    sure, there are other options, but I have had these for going on 2 years and none of them have died, where other brands are reported dead witin a few months.

    haven't really found anyone reporting this fan as dead, it is only a 1300 rpm, but does move plenty of air.
  2. This one if you can find it in stock: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553001 Check out the reviews.
  3. Take a look at Noctua fans. They make quality products that are very quiet. I have a few in my case as well as my CPU cooler. They have an odd color scheme that some people don't care for. I recommend checking them out as a serious contender for quiet quality.

    Thanx, but I don't like the fan speed knob.

    I wonder if any speed controller can override the fan speed knob, if u set it to the lowest setting, if it will still kick in to the highest speed if needed.

    Not bad, how long is the connecting cable for the mobo? It looks short.

    My 902 is over 2yrs old now and one of my Tri-Cools is starting to make noise.
