Hey Guys,

Alright well I have a MGE Sidewinder Midtower case with 3 80mm fans and 1 120mm fan. The two 80mm fans that are on the side of the case are going out I think. Not 100% sure, but they're making a weird noise. I want to replace them for some better 80mm fans that suck and blow faster air (haha). Not sure what the CFM's are on the 80mm fans, but I think they're are like 20+CFM. They're blue LED and are still glowing like new just have annoying sounds like somethings htting the fan blade (nothing isn't tho) ? :wtf:

What are some good BLUE Led 80mm fans that BLOW a sh!t load of air into the case. I am looking for atleast 40+CFM with some Led lights to set it off. I searched newegg and tiger and found some good LED fans, but they dont blow the kind of air I am looking for. I don't care about how loud they're because I do mainly gaming (cs:s) and wont hear the fans. I don't want an adjustable RPM speed fan. I just want a set fan speed that I dont need to touch that has sufficient air blowing. Know of any... ?

Any help would be great! Thanks in advance!

There's some at newegg that do about 38CFM, but they're Blue LED's with minor Red LED flashing...

do u care if they are loud r soft? cuz if u want them to be soft u can always get a converter which makes a 80mm to 120mm fan, and then just use a low rpm 120mm fan to get the airflow with much less noise
