Can anyone recommend a nice bright cheerful not hideously priced in stock Quiet Red Led 120mm Fan? It's for the rear of the case, so it would be nice if it cast some nice red light on the wall behind it. So the fan itself doesn't necessarily have to be red just produce a nice red light effect at the back. The other fan in the case will be a Coolermaster Mega-Flow 200mm Red Case Fan.

TIA.

most asthetic fans arent quiet - your best bet would be to buy a normal red LED 120mm fan and fit a fan-power-lowerer (a resistor) to it

Yeah I have a few of those from some old Noctua fans, just thought that there may be something out there that I haven't come across.

What about the Phobia Nano G12's 1500rpm fans Tom used in the GSL Snowdrift rig they seem pretty decent.

That does look pretty decent, would have to reduce its speed though, no way will it be quiet at 1500 rpm.

They were pretty loud in the vid Tom did at 12v but if you you use a 8v resistor they should run quiet. I like the look of those Enermax T.B.Apollish fans though.
