Please, looking for anything between from 1600-1800rpm that don't look ugle. There for a 120 Ultra Extreme, I already have some fans but there a bit ugle and stand out.

The new nanoxia fans look pretty nice! :) I'd buy some noctua fans if I were you though, because they are practically silent and perform great!

Yes, Yes it would.

Not really, adding an led and changing the colour wouldn't affect performance of the fan.

My case is filled with antec tricool fans, 3 speeds and no fan controllers needed.

yah the antec fans are pretty good. i'm using the existing ones on my antec 900 and P180.
if your looking to move some air, get these (http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/delhigper.html) they move some air and are pretty quiet.

i have two EFB1212SHE on my ultra 120 extreme and they definitely get the job done

I've got some of them now (the silent 120 ones) and they're great! :D
Very silent and good performers. I can only recommend them! :thumbsup:

Those DELTAs are freaking turbines! If you put like two or more of them in your case you get deaf, and add two and you'll have yourself a computer you can fly to Israel with!

Yate Loons take the price per performance mark any day of the week!

$5-6 for a super quite high flow 120mm..... beats $25 for one noctua (they are great fans too just out of budget IMO) SilentX are also good fans but for the price you may as well get noctuas

this is a great place to buy stuff if you live west of the mississippi (fast shipping)

I've always been a.. fan.. of Panaflo (http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g/c15/s562/list/p1/b51/Panaflo-12_Volt_Fans-120mm_x_38mm_Fans-Page1.html?id=rTo4y6vk). They were very quiet and the noise they did make was a low hum, not as annoying as the higher pitched fans.

some are loud like you suggest, but some aren't. and mine isn't the double design, just a regular 120mm fan. the model # i suggested, i have two on my ultra 120 extreme and i can't hear them. i have them plugged into a fan controller so i can turn them down, but i don't have a need since i can't hear them.

Oh my... if you don't hear delta fans, you're either tonedeaf, or your other components are that noisy they're drowned out :headexplode:

Delta has only three categories:
1. loud
2. extremely loud
3. only usable by the tonedeaf

or not all of them are loud like you guys are ignorantly insisting. yes some of them are as loud as fog horns, and a select few aren't. i've stated the model number that i have and i can barely hear them.
