Closed Need some fan replacement for my pc. Tags: Power Supplies Fan Elite Components Product Last response: November 16, 2012 4:53 PM in Components Share prototype18 a b ) Power supply November 16, 2012 9:39:07 AM I have a nzxt 410 elite tempest and i want to add some more fans. Now i have only 3 stock fans and they are not so loud at night :S So i want something silent and that does the job right. About the price i dont want to spend more than 25$ per fan. So i googled and found this fan's COUGAR CF-V12HPB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan with Pulse Width Modulation (Black) Antec TrueQuiet Pro 120MM I heard that cougar's if mounted horizontally make some strange noise. So if i get them i will switch the 3 stock fans to horizontally and use the cougars vertically. But i cant decide. Reviews says that they are both silent. Any idea ?

Self lubricant bearing is the best... they sold under diffrent names (patent issue) like twister bearing, hydro bearing, etc... prototype18 a b ) Power supply November 16, 2012 11:50:39 AM @ rdc85 cougar vortex is hydro bearing ..
