200 mm fan choice

I was wondering if there were any dead silent 180/200 mm fans around?

For now I've only seen some Antec fans which could work

Are there any around or should i slap any old 200 mm with a fan controller and lower the RPM?

I know there are +250mm fans which have a very good but that's jut too big :P

price is not really an issue so anything should do

With the 200m fans you cant turn them down too much before they become useless. Id look at the yate loon fans tbh, as the antec ones are pantaloons

The only 200mm fans I know of are the Antec Big Boy and the Cooler Master Megaflow. The Cooler Masters come in blue or red led variant and spin at 700 rpm, so they should be pretty silent. The Big Boy comes without leds, has a three speed switch and seems to cool better, though it comes with more noise.

I wouldn't go for the antec big boy since it has a molex connector and not a 3 pin. (at least that's how it is in the antec 900. 902 and 1200 cases)

And when you turn it to the speed it actiually it does something good, it's pretty loud.

I dunno about those other fans though
