Some fans? How many fans do you require? Is £30 your limit for all fans or each? Do you need Static pressure (radiator fans) or Air Flow?

£30 For all fans if possible. Just standard airflow no rads or watercooling

might want to spell out your system and air flow now so others can better aide you. 30quid isnt alot for FANS these days hell I just spent 180$ for 6 ML fans last month.

you just need a couple fans set to intake on the top of the case since its dust filtered. Then you should be fine. Just look for air flow fans verses static pressure fans

You already have a 120 at the rear so get two 140mm PWM fans at the front, £15 per fan gives you a wide range of choices. Run them from your motherboard header so they stay as quiet as possible and only ramp up when needed.

Top of the list for me would be the Noctua
NF-P14s redux-1200 PWM which are £13.99 from Overclockers.

im guessing you want to aim for 3 fans then at that budget which will get you some "adequate" quality ones but nothing great. £30 is what I spend for 1 fan.

EK used to use some 120mm fans from Gelid which were decent and around £10 each. So 2 intakes and 1 exhaust might be a good option for you. Either that or what Davva posted above.

Have they dropped in price? not bad at all, still slightly over his budget though. Definately a good option considering the airflow they provide even when not used as a rad fan.
