Suggest a 120mm, quiet, n 1200rpm fan

I want to replace my LED fan, cuz I can't stand the light at night.

Fan will be plugged into my PSU, not controlled.
So, I want a fan that is definitely 120mm and 1200(preferable) or 1000 rpm, but quiet.
Also, under $10usd.

Thanks

    What fan are you referring to? 14" fans are noisy. 10" might fit but it depends on my case. I'm not sure if the screw holes are lined up for it . I have a 12" LED fan currently.

    I only want one, and not sure if it's the same as a sickle flow fan. According to anandtech, the sickle flow has horrible thermal performance, meaning it doesn't cool well.
    Any others stand out?

    I like this one, but I can't find reviews or proof this fan is great.
    I am leaning this way but Cougar makes good ones too.

    I could not find any either.Here a few other recommendations 1) Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm Case Fans - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608004#top


    2) Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 (1850rmp) or AP-14 (1450 rpm)

    3) Silverstone AP-121

    All over budget so i think your best is the Cougar fans.
  8. NOCTUA NF P12 , not cheap but they move lots of air . are quiet and they last .

    I should add I'm in Taiwan, and I can't suggest a website to you but we have most of the same products.

    The Silverstone AP-121 is listed at $12.5usd here.
    Scythe and Noctua ...I haven't seen those brands here, but honestly we have most of the other brands.

    I really want a quiet side fan that is set at 1200+-100 rpm, so I don't have to worry about it not running. I've
    noticed sometimes (using ASRock Extreme Utility) my fans don't speed up to cool down my CPU and GPU when
    I'm gaming. I periodically check fans with CPUID. So, I want a fan that is always on so I don't have to worry about
    overheating components.

    Maybe consider Thermalright X-Silent 120mm x 25mm Stealth Silent Fan - 1000RPM otherwise go with the Cougar fans.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. I had found that Thermalright fan at a decent price, and a Cougar fan(although not sure of this model).
  12. Picked up a Thermalright X-Silent 120mm for $7.50

    Do you use a air filter screen in front of all your intake fans? I installed two cuz I noticed a decent amount of dust collecting in the case. I also put two air filters (cheap $0.50) on the top to catch particles that fall in through the top. Am I going over the top on this one?
  13. No i do not think your going over the top.I have the 810 switch it does not get a chance to get to much dust.I clean it with a can of compressed air once every 3 months.I would recommend placing mesh on your fans that blow into the case. This would prevent dust getting into your PC. If you don't
    bother with using the mesh there can be a few problems that can arise
    from this.
    Dust acts as a insulation and over time it will build up on your
    motherboard and your components. If left unattended it can increase the
    heat of your components as it gathers. I've seen people's PCs covered in dust and when they've cleaned them they saw a decrease in temperature.

    It's a absolutely a bugger to clean once it's in there. The longer you
    leave it the harder the job will be.So your thinking smart imo.
