looking for some case fans to put in my pc, I want them to be good at cooling as well as staying quiet without emptying my wallet.

What's your budget, and what size do you need?

Do you have a color preference?

Just get super cheap **** ones and run them at 600rpm. Airflow if rarely ever an issue in systems.

how do you set the fan speed? you need 4 pin fans to do that

No you don't! If you give a fan less power it will turn slower! :D

PWM is just more accurate.

How do you think those desk fans work? PWM is too expensive for a £5 desk fan.

sweet I did not know you could do that on a pc, would you be able to like a guide on how to do this?

It's really simple. In your bios there will be a graph of sorts that has fan speed on one side and processor temp on the other, which allows you to gage what speed the fan will be at each temp.

This is called a fan curve.

If you buy a $15 fan, you could effectively replace it 5 times with ****** ones. Just buy all of them and hide them in your bed, then when one breakes replace it.

I have litterally gone to best buy and bought case fans that are super nice, heavy duty, and quiet, plus they are only like 10 bucks
