Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

I would use the S12B's for case ventilation and the the P12 PWM's for your cpu heatink as it has a 4 pin pwm connector and higher static pressure to force air through the fins.

For CPU heatsink selection I would go with the H212 as it is probably cheaper than the U12P, and performs just as well. But if aesthetics are a concern, then you might as well jsut go with all noctua fans and cooler. Noctua fans will be pretty quiet.

Ok, I'll buy Hyper 212 and Noctua P12 for Cooler, ryt? and S12B for case ventilation.

Yeah, I think that is the way to go. How much are those fans where you are? I think they are around 20 bucks a pop last time I checked here.
