I like the Typhoon, but... well. If I'm going to be picky about color, I'm going to be really picky.
Thanks for the warm welcome Xan. The Nexus One looks like it could definitely work. And that's actually part of the plan (well the heatsink part). White case, black motherboard, black sound card, black PCB Video card, Black PSU, white RAM, white fans with black casing, possibly paint the top fin (and very top only) on the CPU cooler and add in Arctic Cooling VGA cooler at a later date. Best of all: No LEDs.
I think I've narrowed it down to 4 options:ARCTIC COOLING AF12PWM 120mm Case FanGELID Solutions FN-PX12-15 120mm Case Fan with Intelligent PWM controlNexus Basic Series 120mmNZXT FX-120LB 120mm Enthusiast 3 Speed Fluid Dynamic Bearing 2600RPM Fan
Now what I hate about fans and the reason I come to you is because I know that the specs given by the manufacturer are not accurate or reliable for comparing one fan to another.
Now my case has 7 fan options.
Top: 2 x 120mm/140mm
Side: 1 x 120/140
Bottom: 1 x 120/140
Front: 2 x 120
Rear: 1 x 120
It comes with two of the Fractal Design Silent Series 120mm fans
. I was thinking that what I should do is move both of those fans to the front of the case. Then buy a fan for the CPU cooler, and buy another fan for the rear exhaust. Does this sound like a good idea?
The NZXT is a really good fan in terms CFM, but noise is quite high.
The Nexus is quiet, and highly rated as a case fan but its CFM seems to be low? Too low for a CPU cooler fan?
The Arctic Cooling and GELID fans seem to do okay for both CFM and decibels. But I really am not sure.
Any other fans to consider? Suggestions? Ideas? I'm open to anything.
