Hello all, looking to buy a Antec ISK 300-65 case and read that the fan tends to be loud. I found two fans that were recommended:

Noctua NF-R8 80mm Fan 2-Pack http://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NF-R8-80mm-Fan-2-Pack/dp/B001QYLOA4/ref=sr_1_5?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1311954837&sr=1-5

ENERMAX UC-8EB 80mm Case Fan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811999199

Any comments on these two fans? Wanted to get opinions or feedback before I made the purchase. Thank you.

I would go with a Noctua or Nexus 80mm first

I would rather go with BeQuiet Silentwings (for me 80mm version is better than 120mm) or Coolink SWIF2, or Nexus.

The Noctua NF-R8 is an ageing fan, not bad, but BeQuiet is better :P

I keep hearing good things about BeQuiet fans. I would like to see them tested by SPCR.

See:
Which PWM, CPU or Specialty Fan do you Want SPCR to Review?
