Im a big panaflo fan *grin*

Seriously though, panaflos are great, and produce the most cfm for the noise level. Cant go wrong with them.

Next in line would be the YS Tecks and Sunons

172mm Comair Rotron. 12v 235cfm, 55dba. Run it at 7v and u still get a nice breeze and very low pitched noise. I personally did the trick with the ground attached to 5volt line. Much easier and faster to do. Not permanent (i did over a connection between the fan and the psu). And doesnt generate heat.

I quite like the thermal take case fan II's. You can offset their speed by using the little resistor, and still keep them variable by using the temp sensor. You have a *massive* cfm and noise range as well.

for pure quality papst > panaflo > sanyo denki > nidec > delta
