So as I sit here refreshing the UPS website waiting for my new toys to arrive, I'm browsing FrozenCPU.com.
I want this computer to run quiet(er). So I'm looking into replacing the 2 120mm fans (front & rear) that are included with the case. I'm sure they are just basic fans anyhow. I was also contemplating adding a 120mm to the side vent area.
Here's the case: http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/Products.aspx?pid=1248
Has anyone used the SilenX fans? I was looking at this one. I also saw the Noctua fans which seem to have amazing reviews (and nice specs) here.
In addition to the fan replacements, I'd like to add fan filters to them all. I'm tired of seeing dust inside. Thoughts on FilterRight? The two-piece design seems like it'd make it easy to clean.
Also, I was thinking of adding some silencers as well. The silicone silencers seem to be the way to go (here). Do these work well?
I'm trying to keep as much airflow as possible and minimize the fan noise which is why I was looking at the 120mm fans. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for the processor fan (Intel E6300 boxed) yet.
Thoughts, comments, suggestions..... If you know of better pricing, feel free to let me know.
