Hiya people!!I have a Xigmatek Eris case and it has option for two 120mm fans on top so what would be the best fan options in terms of :-
-Best Performance(Ignoring price)
-Best performance to noise ratio
-Best Value or money

I have a XFX R9 290X DD in a mini itx case so i expect some high temps and furthermore its summer so i am looking for a good cooling solution,Thanks for your time :)

Edit:Actually dont ignore price keep it down to under $20
Edit 2:Are 140mm fans with 120mm screw holes any good?

Best performance to noise ratio

These fans are all pretty quiet provided you aren't blasting them at full speed, mainly the Indrstrial fan.

Best Value or money

See above.

AR771 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

idea on scythe slip stream 120 1900 rpm or 1200 rpm??They are the original ones,the ones with sleeve bearing

AR771 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Also they both are expensive but if if one of them is better than any other two like two scythe slip stream 1200 rpm>?

Here a website https://gear-up.me/

The two first fans i saw going to that section of the site is my reccomendation.
The be quiet! Pure wings 2
And the cooler master scicle flow

the cooler master is a bit more performance oriented, and the pure wings is a bit quieter, and they're both pretty cheap

No one knows what the UAE is, but when you say Dubai they think billionaires with super cars. That's not the real UAE.

AR771 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Exactly

AR771 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

My eye is currently on Scythe Slip Stream 120 1200 rpm or the 1900 rpm, they both have he same price tag but i cant decide between them.The 1900 rpm is better at cooling but i heard that its loud and i dont want it to be soo loud that ppl think i bought engine in the house,lol.

They aren't silent fans but they aren't going to be jet engines , for that you would be looking at the likes of Notuca Industrial fans at 3K RPM or some of Delta fans.

Jesus Christ, I'm so glad I replaced my Delta PSU fan.

BigAll 5 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Why, delta makes great fans :P
