Windows 7: Best 200mm Case Fan

Best 200mm Case Fan

I've just got a Nzxt Phantom full tower case and I love it but the fans are bit loud to my liking so I'm looking to replace the 200mm top fan with a quiet but fast blue LED fan.

Thing is, I'm not sure which 200mm fan to get, anyone have a good 200mm fan that woul be decent enough?

This is the fan I have in currently (the default case fan)

NZXT FS-200 Enthusiast Silent Case Fan - 200mm [FS-200RB]

Thanks!

beagrie07,
The thing is the 200mm fans are slow spinning solutions and by nature of spinning slower are quieter. Might you be able to consider other options like maybe using 4x80mm's or larger and going with truly quiet designs like the Noctua's.
Here is the 92mm model that you could mod to fit 4 in that space.

I quite like the Spectre you've linked to, I'll look into that one, more than likely buy it today

Thanks

I hope it turns out to be as quiet as claimed. You can also install a fan speed control or put a resistor inline to slow it down to further quiet it but wide open it should be very quiet if they didn't smoke and mirror the spec's!

On a side note, I suspect that one of the stock 120mm's like the front intake will be the next loudest if not the rear case fan. I would consider the Noctua's in a 120mm focused flow and they come with resistors (2) to slow them down which you won't need but could be a great asset to quiet any other fan in your system. Or is space will allow and it should then you can use the trick Noctua 140mm which mounts using either 120mm or 140mm mounts and creates even greater air flow with extremely low noise.
