    I've seen one other thread on this, but what I'm actually looking for is quite different.

    A couple of the 120 fans on my 1200...one intake and one exhaust, are giving distressing clatters and rattles, and I may take this opportunity to just replace the lot of them.

    What I'm actually looking for is the best cooling performance. Sound be damned. It can sound like a jet engine for all I care, so long as it gives the best cooling.

    As a side note, is the antec big boy the best available 200 fan for the exhaust?

    If you can afford it, filling it with Noctua fans like these would be your best bet when it comes to sound. They're some mighty good fans.

    To clarify:

    By "sound be damned", I mean I don't care in the absolute slightest how much noise they make. they can sound like a jet engine so long as they give the best cooling performance.

    *golfclap* ;P

    I just honestly don't get the whole silent cooling thing. I'm perpetually using either headphones or a high-powered sound system, so I can't hear my antec 1200 + optional fans even on high settings.

    If performance is key and noise is no matter, go find some 38mm thick Delta Fans. They do well over 100 CFM and are loud like the jet engine pictured above.

    :laugh: These are no joke, strictly performance.

    Imagine 2 of these in a case.

    The only way in hell I'd own two or even one of those is if the computer was outside of the house, in the shop, closed off, minding its own business. Just insane and unnecessarily loud :wtf:

    If you care to get cheap but good fans, you can always get yate loons. Heard they were pretty decent, at a good price too.
