Default Fans

Computer Case Fans, Case Fans, 4 Pin Case Fans, 70mm Case Fan at Newegg.com

There's so many bearings to choose from, what's the best? Fans don't seem to cost much, so I won't mind putting down extra money, only if it's worth it.

What size of a fan do you want? 70mm? I think nowadays, people usually either get 2-ball bearings or Sleeve.

go for quite ones which cost more of get cheapo ones and get a fan speed controller which can be useful, as you can turn he fans down when just using your pc for genaral stuf and turn them up for gaming

Check to see what fans your case support. I like the 120mm myself because they provide massive cooling, but can tend to get a little loud. Right now, I'm running 4 x80mm fans.

Smaller fans = faster RPM. Which makes it louder. Getting a 120mm fan can move more air into your computer with a slower RPM. I had 2 80mm, left my computer on at night, and it was loud.

Darn you nick, well I would say, go for Antec Tricools 120mm Fans. They're awesome!
