My System Specs

Default Looking for QUIET 120mm fans

I just moved some hardware down to a mATX factor for multimedia purposes. I'm now the happy owner of an Antec mini P180, and I'm looking for a couple quiet 120mm fans to use as the front intake. I'm trying to avoid spending $20 per for Noctuas if possible.

Basically it's the system in my spec list. The P180 has nice airflow already, I'm just looking to add the airflow intake from the front. The MOST important requirement is low volume. Good airflow is important, but it doesn't need to be anything crazy. Any suggestions?

Yeah I'll second that. Gelids are awesome for the price point they are at.

Gelid or scythe gentle typhoon or S-flex. They all have good price and are silent:)

Certain S-Flex models are silent. The G's howl at full speed. The D or E models are very quiet.

Third for Gelid. I find the Gentle Typhoons to have an oddly annoying sound.

Definitely a good deal for these fans. I have 6 of these in my 800D and overall its still pretty quiet.
