Suggestions on case fans

What would be some good case fans?One of my fans is starting to ware out and slows down at times and speeds back up when i tap it. Anyways something not to expensive but is not bad quality. Looking for two side case fans,might as well replace both of them. This is my case(AZZA Orion 202 EVO) want to replace the two led fans on the side on the case door. They are 120mm Fans and I got two of them. What brand would you suggest and doesn't matter if they got leds like my current ones or not,i just want something quiet and that is pretty good at cooling the case. Any suggestions are much appreciated

I don;t know what your budget is, but the Gentle Typhons are a sure bet, but hard to find. They are several models with differing rpm. Here is one of the 1850 rpm:

Amazon.com: Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm Case Fan- 1,850rpm, 28dba, 58.3cfm: Computers & Accessories

These are about the quietest and move a lot of air.

Of course the Noctua's are far from inexpensive but quality they have hands down. Also the 140mm will mount in many 120mm positions.

Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

Agree with Geno Im using Mugen Sycthe Slip stream fans and they hit 1900 rpm max but barley hits 1400 rpm super good and keeps everything cool Micro Center - Scythe Slip Stream 120mm 1,900 RPM Case Fan SY1225SL12SH

you can try this one as well but it is a thicker fan 38 mm but has the push of a Jet engine http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0274204

I agree with linnemeyerhere Noctua are the best and plus very quiet but they do cost more. I do use them.

Plenty of good fans already mentioned, but another cheap option would be Nexus Real Silents. Cheap and push adequate amount of air quietly.

Corsairs new line of fans are supposely as good as noctua with about 2 degrees difference but much cheaper and they are in black, I havent tried them myself since I use noctua ones but take a look at the youtube video, and that guy is a noctua nerd too, but these fans pretty much made him go corsair, and you can buy 2x corsair fans for cheaper then 1 noctua fan, if I understand what he is saying correct

A lot of good fan vendors. Check the "Feedback" section at Newegg for problem fans. I'm sold on Ball Bearing fans rather than Sleeve Bearing models. Ball Bearing fans should last the life of a computer.

I think I might put those corsair fans into consideration, maybe a Corsair sp120 or AF120 quiet edition twin pack would be good.What do you think? Or should I go with something else?Also one question what's the differnce between a static pressure fan and the AF one that says High Airflow

Anyways what's the difference,what are the static ones for?

These are the two different twin packs,which would better suit me for the side fans on the pc case door?

SP = Static Pressure used for radiators/liquid cooling because of the larger blades they pushes the air trough while a regular fan does so too but some of the air could go reverse because of to little pressure.

AF = Air Flow those would be good for intake fans since they focus on bringing in as much air as possible and spread the air.

So if you using them on the side of your chassi the AF would suit your need better
