I'm looking to get some decent fans for my new build but didn't realise just how many different types were on the market. I would prefer fans that are not to loud and have a red LED light on them. To finish off my cooling I'm going to need:

3 x 120mm
1 x 140mm

Hope you lot can help me :)

I like the Yate Loon fans, which are affordable,quiet, and reliable. There are some here:

The fans are listed by High, medium, and low speed so you can pick the speed and corresponding sound level you prefer.

Of course there are other brands available and you can spend up to $25 a piece, but most folks are interested in hearing about affordable ones.

Antec has some nice fans, so do BitFenix, Enermax, Lian LI, and Xigmatek. Although I recently had a 200mm Xiggy that was horrible, so they aren't my favorite right now.

I've just seen some Coolmaster Sickleflow fans with red LEDs, are these any good? Also would 8 fans in one case be very load and a little bit overkill??

I have these in my AMD rig, they can get very loud when pushed past 70%.


How many of these do you have in your case? When you run them at about 50%-60% how loud would you say they are??
