Regards,

In my Antec p182 I put two fans extracting air (top and back) and one in the front introducing air, which introduces air must have good pressure. Fans of this box are 12cm.

The fans need to be efficient and quite silent.

The fans extracting and introduced air can be different.

What do you consider better between these fans?

Be Quiet Silent Wings 2 1500rpm
Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1450rpm 120x120mm
Noctua NF-P12 120x120 1300 RPM Ultra-Low-Noise

Accept any other suggestions.

If you want real quiet go with Scythe Gentle Typhoon 800rpm soft mounted.

ok, but that would not be very low speeds?

I have a P182 with a simialr configuraltion:

top and back are 800 rpm Scythe SLipstreams
middle front and bottom compartment are 1200 rpm Scythe Slipstreams
All are "soft" mounted


(The CPU fan is also an 800rpm Slipstream)

All run at full speed. This is very quiet to inaudible with the case under the desk and produces a soft but audible "whoosh" with the case on the desktop about 2 feet away.

I have a set of Noctua NF-S12B's I'm going to try in the case soon. This is not because the Slipstreams aren't quiet or don't cool adequately, but because a couple are starting to fail (speed dropping to 200-400 rpm, slow to spin up and such) and I'd like to try the Noctuas.

I would have tried Gentle Typhoons but I cannot locate any of the models below 1450rpm and they are reported in several places to produce an unpleasant noise if you try to slow them down.
