Default computer case fans

I was wondering which 12 inch case fan should i go for?
I have come up with the following makes avbailable to me in the UK(peopel in UK if you know of any other, please do let me know)


also i was wondering what the function of a fan filter was? does it keep out the fur balls that accumulate in a computer case, also
how does it fit on a fan, will i face any problem fitting a fan filter onto a fan

wow, I wouldn't mind having a copple of 30cm fans, but im pretty sure those companies don't sell them.

if you mean fan guard, it screws onto the fan, a filter is on the case, I took mine out, to let out more light, but it gets a bit dusty in the case now. It helps stop dust getting into the case. I haven't seen one for a fan though, but it would screw on like a guard.

I assume you mean 120mm/12cm case man rather than 12".

It doesn't particularily matter, I'd go with something double ball bearing though that has a higher CFM rating.

Fan Filter just keeps dust and other particles from getting into your case and settling, attaching them is no problem.
