Hey guys. I've been looking around a while now for a good 120mm fan.
I don't know what to look for in a fan while doing a push/pull.
I don't want it to be too loud but still move quite a bit of air.
I am willing to go to around $20 per fan.

I will have 6 in a push/pull config on a XSPC RX360

I will have 1 in a pull config on a XSPC RX120

Also, I was hoping that they could be white.
If not, then blue.
If neither, then black.

Thanks.

Xigmatek makes fans that are near silent (under 20dBA) but still push ~60CFMs. Only $10/fan and come in a variety of colors with/without LEDs. They're listed on newegg.

Try EnermaX and Noctua too ( Don't know the price but they both make good quality fans )

check out Cougar Vortex CF-12HP 120MM fans, these fans are whisper quite and push a surprisingly large amount of air. I just recently installed these fans on my Antec 920 for push/pull. Newegg sells them from $17.00 a piece.

Thanks for the replies.
Gonna start reading reviews on these fans now.
And at first I was gonna get the cougar fans, but I heard people saying that they make some really annoying noise when placed horizontally.

The Cougar brand is really HEC. I don't know who makes their fans, but I would expect them to be lower quality like the rest of their products are.

Best push (intake/pushing into radiator) = Silverstone AP

best pull (exhaust/pulling out of radiator) = anything that moves alot of air.

I prefer silverstones Ap line because they do not disperse air in all directions. There are fans that push more air but directional wise are all over the place.

Hi ya'll, I was looking at doing basically the same thing (on an XSPC Raystorm EX360) with just pull config, any idea what fan would be best? I was hoping white led.
