I vote for Gelid they have a longer warranty and I've been very pleased with them so far.

The Nexus fans are not reference fans @ SPCR without reason, you can't go wrong with them for most applications :)

arctic cooling F-series fans aren't bad either, especially if you want to daisy chain pwm fans together

It seems that the black/white nexus fans are no longer availible. The one on my grandpas computer (orange) is still going strong after 5+ years so that's too bad. Any other 'consensus' fan recommendations that are black and white? What about the nzxt http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX32976 or Arctic cooling F12http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX27659? I would be using them for up top exhaust as well as on Kuhler 920 in push/pull. Thx :)

I don't believe that is so:

1. They are on Nexus's website:
http://www.nexustek.nl/NXS-silentcasefans.htm

2. And are available from Newegg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6835610006

3. If they are no longer available.... what color do they come in now?
