...I read the recent review, but came away unsure what to do. The fan in my Lian Li 08 case, which is 120x25mm, has started to become more audible, and I'd like to replace it. Can someone give me a recommendation for something quiet that I can buy from Amazon (I'm placing an order there for something else already)?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: here's a pic in case anyone's curious about the connector or something...

You may not even need a fan if you're running a <30 watt system. What's your rig.......MB, CPU, CPU cooler, graphics, HDD's and PSU?

Oh, sorry...Asus ASRock Z68M mobo, i7 overclocked to 4.1, some damn big CPU cooler (can't remember which), no graphics card, one SDD and one HDD (a WD Green). Thing runs pretty cool, but there's a hole in the case, so I imagine I should replace it with something.

If it has to be from amazon and you looking for prime or furfilling the $25,

Nexus Real Silent 120mm Fan with Anti-Vibration Fan Mounts

What im not sure if its the orange or the black/white version, the drescription says black, the item model indicates orange, reviewers say both....

The Noctua NF-S12A FLX might be worth considering.

Compared to the Nexus this fan runs has a slightly higher 1200 rpm top speed. As well as the fan you also get a complete fitting kit including rubber mountings, an extension lead, molex to fan cable, a low-noise (900 rpm) and ultra low noise adapter (700 rpm). For this you pay more, around $23. I have used the Noctua rubber mountings, find them easy to fit and in conjunction with the fan's integrated anti-vibration pads might be a better fit for a Lian-Li case.
