Hi,

i've considered to exchange my stock case fans on my Corsair 600t white edition, since the front 200mm fan is making a whiny noise. i've been looking arround quite a bit for new fans, but can't seem to find some proper.
now i'm asking the community to help me find some nice quiet fans.

when i'm changing the front 200mm i would also like to change the top 200mm for maybe 2x120mm instead.

Have a nice day :)

i just found out, that the preinstalled fans are 200x200x20mm. the 200mm fans you provide are 30mm thick. :/ 

but the 120mm noctua fans would go great with my NH-14D. :D 

a quick look at newegg shows, that they do have 20mm thick 200mm fans. but they all mount as exhaust fans(why??).
seems i need to get one of those and make some makeshift intake-fans of them..

i've just remembered a new fan manufacturer and looked up their fans.
Bitfenix spectre pro
http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/products/accessories/...
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bitfenix-Spectre-Non-LED-Black-...
an incredible 148.72 CFM!! but a bit on the loud side. 27,5 dB
but this one is 25mm thick.. i need to find out if my case can fit those extra 5mm in the front.

and this one

Bitfenix spectre
http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/products/accessories/...

this one is exactly 20mm thick and would fit my case i think ^^
but only has 47.4CFM but much quieter then the spectre pro. <20dB

If you don't have buy an fan controller and with that you can controll the RPM of the fans.Those fans look good.

Xigmatek XLF-F2004 200mm White led.800rpm=as you've found out the mounting needs to be modified for intake.

Whatever you do don't buy a 200mm NZXT = proprietory mounting.
I think you should go for one of the BitFenix 200mm = the PRO at 27.5db is quiet.
Anything up to 30db is considered quiet.
20db and under is silent.
