    hello guys i need some help here about a silent fans.

    I need to replace the fans of my case lian li pc 50 r because they have the freaking red led on all the time. i was thinking to a way to turn them off but the only thing that come in my mind is to cut the led loose! lol:D

    So i thought that probably the only way is to buy 4 new fans.

    i heard that noctua are the best in silent fans. What do you suggest?

    this is my fans configuration now:

    -2 x 140 mm 1000 rpm on top of the case.

    -1 x 120 mm 1200 rpm front case.

    -1 x 120 mm 1500 rpm back case.

    nexus and yate loon (same thing really) are great silent fans.

    just watch out since yate loon have some really high CFM models as well as low ones - their main advantage is that they scale well with voltage (meaning they get quieter smoothly on fan controllers, they dont behave weirdly or click, for example)
