I bought this Rosewill 3/4 pin 120mm red LED fan from Newegg and it works great, quiet and cheap.

What else could you ask for?

I have to ask -is it really red? Like "RED"

It doesn't look it...:o

Being serious by the way. I'm looking for new fans too.

I have these...they are not very bright but they push a ton of air.

Best fans I've ever had.

Yea it's red, just as red as the other front Cooler Master LED fan that came with my case. It does look a little pinkish when off though.

It is much brighter than the stock Cooler Master fan too as you can see

Nexus PWM fans look good to me. I've read a review on them and the noise to airflow ratio is great. Only, even though they are clear they don't mention LED lighting at all, would have to assume they don't have lighting.

Aerocools are good as well, and push a ton of air.

You still have those orange ones? What brand are they? Looked good.

Those are Xigmateks and they are nice fans too, I don't think they come with a 4-pin connector though.

Ah..too bad. They do look sweet.

I don't know why they don't sell the 120mm Xigmatek fan that comes with the Dark Knight cooler seperately. It is 4 pin and it is pretty quiet with great airflow.

listed DBA is 30.1 and max CFM is 89.45

Good luck, I've NEVER seen one for sale on its own. Let me know if you do, it is a nice fan... a little loud at full speed tho.

I just use a fan controller. Also using a 2000rpm coolermaster fan for CPU cooling. What is benefit of PWM?

I run all my fans at full speed (except the video card one which is the loudest, It's set at 75% and raises to 100% if it hits 80C), and it seems pretty quiet to me. Maybe my hearing is going with old age and the pipes on my motorcycle though. :lol:

Oh, ok. The Dark Knight one is a little loud at full speed, I usually keep it at about 3/4 speed and it's fine, and still pushes a lot of air. I have it set up as the central GPU intake fan in my TJ09.
