Building Quietest Production PC Case
I am actually a newbie to your forum, but here's the deal. I am in the buisiness of computer case design. We are currently working on a project that is to be the quietest pc case on the market. I am currently doing some final research and opinions on case fans, I am looking at an 80MM Case fan, by Nexus.. which claims a 17.6DBA noise level, which is basically undetectable to the human ear. The problem being... it only pumps out about 20.2CFM ... which is a fair amount of air... but not quite enough. So my question is this.. does anyone have any ideas on a quieter or higher airflow fan... and if so what kind and how much. The prototype case we are working on now... has a 19.3DBA sound check... which you can hear... but barely, because of the fact that this case is to go into production we need to be cost effective as well.. So no fans over $30CAD... thank you for you time... and I hope you can help me out.
