LED Airflow Fans

Hey folks,
I've noticed that my AIO gets suffocated with my current setup on my Phanteks Enthoo pro -the default 200mm on the front and 140mm at the back- so I'm thinking of replacing the 200mm one with two 140mm ones. I'm looking for something that will have a fair amount of airflow will be quiet and will also have LEDs and all that without breaking the bank.

Has anyone tried the Bitfenix Spectre?

The normal Spectres aren't all that. They are very quiet but barely shift any air. The Spectre Pros are loads better, I run them in my own rig as well. Have you considering swapping out the 200mm fan to an aftermarket one?

You mean replacing the stock one with another 200mm on the front instead of two 140mm ones? Hmmm I don't know, if I can get the same amount of air in my rig, maybe yes

I'm actually looking at these myself for my Enthoo Pro to replace the 200mm fan not a bad price either tbh. I have 3 Spectre pros atm in my rig and they do the job well.

Did you notice big difference compared to the 200mm one with the 3 spectre pros?

Haha! Have fun mate!!

The spectre LED fans cost 12Euros here each, the 140mm AF140 fans (that must be a pretty much safe and good choice) are 16 euros here and I need...2 (if i change only the front fans) so that means 24 euros for the spectres, 32 euros for the Corsairs..
