My System Specs

Default Which fan for my computer???


I decided to make another thread b/c the other one was in a bad section. Anyways, which fan from the bottom should i get? It is for exhaust fan. If you don't like them, plz give some suggestions, but they have to be under $10.

GELID Solutions GELID Silent 12TC 750-1500RPM 120MM Thermal Control Fan 58CFM 12-25.5DBA HDB 3PIN
Special Features: $7.99
Has a special sensor for measuring the temperature.
Quiet and lots of CFM
Rubber gromets


Yate Loon D12BL-12-UB 120MM UV Blue LED Fan 1200RPM 45CFM 24DB 3/4PIN Ball Bearing Sleeved Retail
Special Features: $8.99
Blue LEDS lights!!!
Quiet but not as much as the Gelid
Apparently its somewhat of a cheap plastic

Some people love the Yates. Not me. Take Gelid.

I wouldn't expect any miracles from either, but the Gelid seem to be a better bet, all things considered, as they have fluid bearings and the grommets, as opposed to the YL's sleeve bearings. I wouldn't take the noise numbers too seriously, pretty much all manufacturer's fudge them somehow, and there are no miracle fans that create silent hurricanes inside our cases.

i lean towards the gelids since i been hearing a lot of bad news from yate loons, even though like 2 months before i heard them being praised. Luck i guess?
