Default Best 92mm Case Fan

I have a Vantec Thermaflow, but i don't like it because it makes too much noise. What's the best fan that i can get, and i don't care about price as long as its quiet or can be quieted, and cools very well

thanks

Well the best 92mm fan out is the Vantec Tornado. However, it blows at about 50 some decibles and is LOUD! If you want a quiet fan while pushing out lots of air, get a 120mm fan.

Here's a good one:

or this one:

All from the same manufacturer.

Yeah, Panaflo 120mm ones are some of the best.

Have you thought about a fan controller?

Default Mad Dog or PCToys...

Mad Dog And PCToys have some the quietest fans I have heard er not heard in some time. I used Antec but since they have decided to show their anal orrifce to the world recently I have stopped using any of their products.
I have to agree with David as to a fan speed controller. I use>
CoolerMaster AeroGate II
Has 4 temp probes reading in C or F
Has 4 fan speed channels
Blue backlit LCD readout

But the biggest thing it has I really really like is a dead fan/lost connection alarm. You don't have to even look at the readout, it'll let you know. It's so high pitched you can't miss it. Neither did the cat when my case fan jammed up and died. $39.00usd And a bargin if you ask me...
