it aint a bad price.. but perfomance wise i think a fan like this one is worth an extra £3:

amazon.co.uk/Aka…P1O
akasa.co.uk/upd…073

nearly twice the airflow, higher static pressure and 3dba quieter at its max

I'm looking for a 200mm fan for the top of my case, any recommendations?

this one...

but seriously beyond 14cm the specs dont really improve going any bigger. also you can get 14cm pwm fans where as ive yet to see any 18 or 20cm pwm fans

Thanks, I'm building my first PC and the phanteks case comes with a front 200mm and a rear 140mm fan, it has space for more fans, was thinking another couple would help with the cooling.32375106-sAyeo.jpg

just be mindful that the one i advised is not a standard size.. eg its not 20cm by 20cm.. you would want to check you have the space clearance for that antec bigboy.. some cases that require 200mm fans have holes for 14cm fans (some even also have holes for 12 as well) might be worth checking

There is an issue with noise specs for fans as there is no standardised way to measure it so you can't compare them.
If you look at sites that measure fan noise they tend to make a mockery of the claimed figures.
An industrial wind turbine is silent if you place the microphone a 300m away!

i had a real problem installing these, and eventaully gave up: seemed to be a common issue.

There are unthreaded rubber washers inside the fixation holes, and it's extremely difficult to get purchase and drive the screws in. even manage to tear a few of them.

Thanks

No PWM?
I've stuck to the cheap Arctic Cooling fans (140mm PWM PST for about 8 quid) and have not been disappointed so far

I'm finding that PWM 'sounds' a lot louder because it changes pitch and volume which makes it a lot more noticable all the time than something that is louder but doesn't change.

For those more technically minded you could get a DC to DC converter and use that to lower your fan voltages and control speed in a kinder way... ( Yes I know it also does a type of pwm.. but it also smoothes it out afterwards)..
