  1. I need some suggestions on fans, I have about a $60-$70 limit, else I'd just get some Noctua NF-P12-1300s to fit on the radiator, but I don't have $150 to spend on fans. =P

    Anyone have an ideas? I was looking at some cooler master ones that didn't look too bad

    I was also looking at these

    Not really going for anything flashy, just something that has a 3-pin and works, lol.

    If it was me, I'd go with Scythe SY1225SL12SH 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan.

    110.31CFM @ 37dBA - They aren't going to be quiet, but will move plenty of air, which is what you want. They also discount the more you order. You could couple them to a fan controller to control them (and reduce speed/noise) when your not gaming etc.

    I have a 6-channel fan controller so that'd work, I have some reallly cheap rosewill fans which I'm surprised at how much air they're moving. Thanks loads for the suggestion tho Leeky, I think I might save up for the Noctuas (Boy this is going to get expensive)
