I would go with the GELID between those two if you don't need a LED fan.

I personally have those Yate Loon fans. My first impression was that they seem to be filmsy, but that was compare to my Noctua fans. However, when used, they work quite well. And I must say that even if I am usually against those, I find the blue LEDs give a nice look to the case. Unfortunatly I can't speak for the GELID, but the Yate Loons are worth it.

Grab the non-LED version of the Yate loons, they push more air, and look considerably better in your case.

I'd go with the GELID. If you wanted though, you could get the PWM if you don't need a temp sensor. The PWM will run at full speed if you just use a 3-pin plug or PSU adapter.

I'd just get the normal Gelid's, they're only $4 or so at NXsource or something like that. pricecanada.com to the rescue!

Yea so far so good for my 7 Gelid Silent 12's. Dead quiet and move air. Not a ton of air, but enough to keep things cool. Plus they were about $4. NXSource.com - Buy GELID Solutions GELID Silent 12 1000RPM 120MM Quiet Fan 37CFM 20.2DBA HDB 3PIN

only gelid wing series are worth considering.

the white ones have terrible static pressure and loud.
