Black frame, White blade fans.

I'm going to change cases to the black Bitfenix Prodigy case. I want some B&W fans for it, 120mm fans for the Corsair H100 all in one cpu cooler and then 140mm fans for the case cooling. The only fans of the size and style I require that I can seem to find are Fractal/NZXT/Gelid brands (Overclockers).

Can folks advise on which brand or mix would be best for a SB 2600k overclocked @ 4.2, so steady but not bleeding edge with noise level being a MAJOR factor in the choice. Not so bothered about leds with the B&W (might be ok with white led).

Tnx all.

How about the Corsair AF/SP fans, should be 120 nad 140mil and are black with the white ring?

Performance and quietness are nice with the quiet-editions.

I care a lot about aesthetics myself, but why do you want fans with white blades in a case with no windows, were you can't see the fans?

As above it seems a bit strange to want Fans that specific when you will barely be able to see them.

I would look at getting scythe typhoons perhaps.

Well if we can't change your mind, scythe typhoons are my favourite.

The typhoons have grey blades so not right. Does anybody know which of my choices are better for the rad and which are better for case flow.

I've got my eye on the Swiftech Helix at the moment - bit loud at 33dBA full whack, but with a fan controller or some reducers they should be okay.

Will let you know if I get them how they work and sound.
