    I want to replace my 120mm fan in my psu.

    Looking for high cfm, but low noise.

    So far I'm looking at cougar vortex fans as a choice.

    Whats the ampage of the old fan as you might not want to go over that, although i would no think a Cougar fan would go over.

    Another i would pick if you can get your hands on one is a San Ace 120

    It's .37 amp. I will be powering it externally. The internal power is controlled based on PSU load and only 2pin.

    I'm using a mod I did 2pin to 3 pin and then fan controlled via 7-10 volt cable for now.

    San ace are good but I know them for loudness lol.

    i wish i can show you what kind of getho mod i did on my psu fan!! :)
    psu was realy freakin loud moment you start the pc,so i wanted to do something about it,then i cut wires of the fan and conect it to molex on 5v,it was like woooow :) no more noise!!
    but few days after when i was gaming i noticed that my pc get litle bit hoter the it use to,im was lucky i didnt burn the damn thing! so i leave my top of case open and just switch + wire from 5v to 12v if am gaming!! :)
