I am buying a Sentey Arvina Case and I know that the stock fans are horrible. So I would like to replace them. I need 2 80mm Blue LED fans and 4 120mm Blue LED fans. I would like to keep them under the same brand. So my question is, what is the best case fans I can get for my case?




Thanks :D

With 6 case fans, a heat sync fan, at least 1 graphics card fan, and a PSU fan running... you may want to wear ear plugs. Pick the ones with the lowest noise level (dBA). And remember, all else being equal, the larger the fan diameter the quieter it will be.

Have any suggestions? I don't have much experience with case fans. Blue LED that has good air flow and is quite. 2 80mm and 4 120mm.

80mm: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

120mm: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Just one man's opinion. I'm sure others will have their favorites...

If you need an extension for the fan cable: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Is there any chance the fan mounting areas will accept a larger diameter fan? I had 2 120s in the front of my HAF 912 and it was too noisy for me. I mounted one 200MM red LED fan in their place, and it is almost silent. And I think it moves more air than the 2 120s did. If not, you have plenty of fans to move air for that case. Just hope it's not to loud for you.

Okay great, thanks! The only thing is, I kind of want that wire LED thing not just in the center. Any more suggestions? Yeah I don't care too much about how loud it is. I use headphones.

Your case accepts a 140mm front intake fan - i suggest you use that.
