Need case fan suggestions for Cooler Master HAF 912

Specifically I'm looking to replace my top 200mm fan which is extremely noisy and possibly the 120mm CPU fan for my Hyper 212 - does anyone have any good suggestions? I know Noctua doesn't make any 200mm fans or that would be my top choice.

  1. It's not a proprietary fan?

    All they have is sleeve and rifle bearings at newegg.

    Performance PC is a popular shop with the WC crowd, never had a problem with them. These bitfenix fans are fluid dynamic:

  2. Be careful shopping for 200mm fans. A lot don't fit different brand cases. You might want to think about moving the 200mm fan to the front and get a couple of 120mm fans for the top. My wife's HAF912 has a 200mm in the front and the stock fan in the back. I can't hear the thing. It has no problems keeping a Gigabyte Windforce 6850 and overclocked Phenom IIx4 955 cool. And yeah newegg's selection of fans is a little underwhelming. I don't think I'd put a sleeve bearing fan in a horizontal position. I'm under the impression that they run a bit louder with more wear and tear when placed so.
    Edit: Forgot to say my place to buy computer fans is SVC.com. They've got everything from logisys to Delta. No Sanyos but they are kinda hard to find anyways.
  3. What? My 200mm are totally quiet. Remember, bigger = quieter.

    Get a Noctua or Scythe for the 120mm.

    No - it's one I salvaged out of an old build - I had a replacement Corsair fan and I know they're notorious for including cheap fans with their products and it definitely shows. The HAF 912 has a top vent that can support a 200mm fan or a 2 x 120mm liquid radiator (eg Corsair H100) but it doesn't come with one.

    I'll check that out.

    That's for a different system - I really like my EVGA cooler but the stock fan it includes is rather noisy when I'm using my PC in anything but idle.
