Hey was curious as to what some good case fans are?

Atm i'm running 2 Thermaltake smart-fan blue LED fans. And, well they are a piece of shit they just die. and the ball bearings just fucked up and start to ratlle. NOT IMPRESSED.

LOL.

I'm kinda over the whole neon thing in my pc, and am looking for some good case fans, unsure which are silent and reliable though.

I'm thinking these two.
What case fans would you recommend? I'm guessing there is not much difference between brands and models but I would like a good reliable and silent one.

There is in fact quite a lot of difference between brands.

Scyth.
Noctua.
Nexus.

These are names to trust.

Scythe are generally good.

I've used Panaflo fans for a while, also good.

As always, you get what you pay for.

Have to recommend Noctua.

I have three 120mm fans - one intack, one exhaust, one on the cpu cooler - and two 92mm - on my graphics cards, and they provide great airflow and are silent - really silent.

Ironically, if you live near an MSY, their 'generic fans' from 'ritmo' are double ball bearing.

I run MANY of them, and none have rattles yet (well over a year at least).

they're $3 a pop for 80mm, and $5 for 120mm

and at 7v they move noticible air and are silent.

considering i run all my fans at 7v, these are fantastic.
