Can anyone reccomend a 60mm Silent case fan
Does it have to be 60mm , how about an 80mm?
I've read PAPST are very good but don't know a source. I use Vantecs which are reasonably quiet but can have a tendency to buzz from time to time .. a Zalman Fan Mate usually solves that problem.
60mms are hard to make effective and quiet at the same time sadly. I have an Accent HTPC case which only takes 2 x 60mms at the rear.
Silenx fans are great, got one on my silverstone case and it beats teh pants off the papst I had.
Another vote for silenx here
After a lot of research, I've recently gone for an 80mm SilenX fan for my Xbox, and I agree completely with Jimbob and Chris - I'm amazed at how quiet it is
Can one of you Silenx users please tell me where I may find these? I've heard of them but haven't found a supplier so far .. and like cowtipper I must have 60mms.
I got mine from http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/, who I can highly recommend for speed of delivery.
Thanks Kevin .. a new supplier to me .. 12Dba, that's QUIET!
And out of stock.
I use Papst, both regular and temperature controlled.
The temperature controlled 80mm Papst exhaust fans I've fitted in a P4 3.2 only run at about 500-1000 rpm most of the time, 1400 at most, and are practically inaudible from more than about 6" away
How about 8dba
Got my fans and psu from here
I used sosilent too, cheaper than kustompcs I think. Be aware that the 8dba fan doesn`t really push a lot of air.
