I want to replace my top fan which has been incredibly noisy. The one I'm using right now is a spare Corsair fan from my other system and it's a 200mm fan. 200 would be preferable but it has placements for 140 and 2 x 120.

These are the ones I am looking at (140 mm) :

200mm:

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I have a 120mm version mounted on a PowerColor 6850 SCS running at 600RPM and it's great.

Cougar claim to use Hydro dynamic bearing fans in their PSUs but the fan model numbers portray this as a lie (Power Logic PLA14025S12M - the S stands for Sleeve). I haven't been able to find any info about the Vortex fan so don't know if they have done the same again, but maybe you want to think about whether you are prepared to take the risk.

I own 2 CM cases and have never been displeased with their fans.
Have even added extras from them.
Megaflow should be fine imo.
For quiet Thermalrights are hard to beat.= use Silent-X's in one of my build = silent under 20db

I got the base model HAF. It only has the front mounted fan - the top and side fans I reused from other builds that I had lying around. I like Thermalright - the fan I have in my system works great, I'll check those out.

Case fans are cheap - I don't think it will be too big of a risk if I try something out of the norm, it's not something really crucial to the build like a new PSU would be.
