Default Fan for Megahalems?

I currently have the Kaze 3000 but at around 2000-2500 rpm it makes a clicking noise... I am wondering what other fans people have used on the Megahalems? I am looking to OC my I7 920 DO here soon and I want something this is going to last... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

SilverStone FM123 120x120x25mm w/ Fan Controller - (FM123) - FrozenCPU.com

I ordered that fan, but they were out so they gave me this one, which is basically the same fan. The controller is useful for when you don't have a load on your CPU and don't need the fan to be running at full speed with the noise.

SilverStone SST-FM121 120mm Case Fan - FrozenCPU.com

Both blast out some air

If you look at the screw area of the Silverstones you'll see the FM121's are enclosed whereas the FM123 are open. So it depends on how your fan clips work. With the True I can't use the FM121's unless I use Tie-Straps instead of the clips.

If the Kaze is clicking sent an email to Scythe, they may replace it for you. You only had it a couple months if I'm not mistaken.

Well the clips work fine with my FM121 (I also have the Megahalems) so that wouldn't be an issue, but like Slay said, try and see if they'll replace it before you buy something new.

I have the San Ace fan with the Megahalems. Supposely one of the best fan. It is very big so I sits on top of one of my RAM.

Thanks for the input guys!

I have the room for a 120x38 so does anyone have a suggestion with that size of a fan (That is what the Kaze 3000 is). I'll try sending an email to them but all in all I might as well get a better fan...

That fan looks pretty powerful. Should cool it well.

Yeah. The Panaflo are high-performance fans and are considered one of the best. The San Ace is better but really hard to find them now.

What about an Ultra Kaze? Love this thing on my core contact, dropped temps by 4c compared to the stock fan. And thats with it set to low, cranked up its just a bit above ambient, 1-2c usually. Although it sounds like a jet at 3k rpm so a fan controller is a must.

Newegg.com - Scythe DFS123812-3000 "ULTRA KAZE" 120 x 38 mm Case Fan - Case Fans

Cheap too.
