Question Need a good 92mm Fan for Ultima 90

Hello,

These are the fans that I decided to go with for my Cosmos s Case. I hope they are not 2 loud

(X4) Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Case Fan - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185006

(X2) Scythe SY1225SL12H 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185059

I will be getting Ultima 90 heatsink for my Q9450. Ultima 90 is basically a bit smaller then the Ultra 120. I need a good 92mm for it. I don’t think 120mm will fit because of the Cosmos S 200mm side panel, any suggestions? It needs to be fairly silent I might put the "Scythe SY1225SL12H 120mm" in front of the case so it cant be louder then that, I think its 33dba, preferable lower then that, but it needs to move a good amount of air as well

Also If I would to put 3 fans on 1 controller switch (piggyback) will it handle it? here is the fan controller that I am thinking of getting

This should help youc choose some good 120mm fans for your case:

So it seems the Silverstone FM122 and the Scythe Ultra kaze are the best. Perhaps they come in 92mm variants. Why the Ultima 90 BTW?

Scythe S-Flex's are great fans. I would take them over the Slipstreams because they don't have a sleeve bearing.

Panaflo fans are good.

Panaflo 42 CFM

If you really want to get into the best fan, it would be the Sanyo Denki San Ace 1011. I have one and they are great fans.

Thank you for the link.

I’m in need of 92mm fan, for Ultima 90. As I stated in my first post I cant have the Ultra 120 because the Cosmos S 200mm fan on the side won’t allow me 2. I would have to remove it (don’t want to do it) Ultima 90 is almost the same as the 120, it looses to the 120 by 2c. Ultima 90 weight’s less and not as tall, perfect for my case.

Actually it doesn't. With a fan controller, it pushes a good amount of air while still being quiet. You should check out the link, there is a really good fan comparison with a lot of fans in there.
