I just purchased a CM 832 case, and im lookin for suggestions on case fans for the side. Ive looked around at alotta different fans, and seen both good and bad comments for alot. If anyone has first hand experience with some good quality fans, id really appreciate some feedback here.

Thanks,
Hav

I just started a thread concerning cases, and fans were discussed as well.

From what I know now...

Noctua
DELTA
and Sycthe are all good fans

Quiet, yet strong

Yate Loon are also good, Scythe seem to be good, more expensive than YAte Loon, I don't know if better. I have 3 Yate Loons on my radiator, I'm really not sure which RPM I bought. I'm planning on buying 3 Scythe fans for side door, back, and front fans and see how they go.


If Scythe are better than Yate Loons then I might change my radiator ones for them.

Yate Loon suck!!!!!!!! :thumbdwn: :thumbdwn: :thumbdwn: :thumbdwn: :thumbdwn:


I have 5 in my P182 and 3 of them have developed vibrations, another one hums and the final one works but that doesn't matter 1 out of 5 survivors is not a good thing! These on the other hand look very promising if i ccan muster up$80 for fans :(

I am a fan wh0re (lee)

I have tried them all :) My absolute favorite is the newest Zalman 120MM fans that I picked up, they are perfect. Bright, quite, and put out a decent amount of air. My next favorite is Yate Loon, although the fan is of high quality, everything else about it felt cheap.

Not that I notice, they also come with some rubber screw thingy's to reduce the vibration, but I am not using them.

I have a Zalman one and he makes some noise, I think those Antec ones are very good and very silent
