What would be some reasonable alternatives to stock fan on Hyper 212+? It is by far the loudest piece in my setup running around 1950RPM.
Noctua NF F12 is $30 in my neck of woods, which seems a bit steep.
I can pick up some Scythe SlipStreams but not the SY1225SL12LM-P model.
For example, Scythe Slip Stream 120mm SY1225SL12M - 1200rpm seems like this one would be quiet but not push enough air at 1200rpm, I figure I need something around 1500-1600RPM.
Another alternative I have seen recommended would be Cooler Master SickleFlow, but all I can get of those are red or green colored case fans, would they actually work well enough as fans on H212+?
CM BladeMaster would be same as what I have now, so that seems out.
I have Hyper 212+ with stock fan cooling Phenom II B50(Athlon 450 fully unlocked) on Asrock 970 Extreme3 M/B.
120mm P/S fan and two 120mm case fans one from Xilence one from Cooler Master, running quietly at 1200-1300RPM.
Idle temps are 32C, and peak is around 45C, thus I am willing to sacrifice a few degrees of CPU temp for some peace and quiet.
