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 ?

scythe gentle typhoons. Either the 1450rpm or 1800rpm are both great choices.

Got some 1450's in my PC and they are silent

Most fan at low speed (900 - 1500 rpm) will not make much noise...

the more important is the bearing quality IMO..
Self lubricant bearing is the best...

they sold under diffrent names (patent issue) like twister bearing, hydro bearing, etc...

@ rdc85 cougar vortex is hydro bearing .. I liked that fan when i saw its spec's.

It moves a lot of air and low DB.

Ill check now that noctua also
