    Case Fans

    Whats the best case fans that 'fit' the ROG red theme...

    I have some older fans (which are blue) that i'd like to replace.

    I remember hearing scythe's are pretty good.. but this could be dated knowledge. Looking for something that pushes a good amount of air but i don't care about the top end CFM if it is unbearably loud.. I'm looking for a good balance between CFM and relative quiet performance. (keep in mind i have 3 blowers going in my gpus which SHOULD be able to easily drown out any non-maxxed case fan noise..)

    Recently i've been getting PCH errors under AISuite when gaming ( > 60c)

    My case is a cosmos 2, which basically has a big intake in the front... mounting fans on the side doesnt work so well (difficult/annoying to mount to the doors, etc)

    I'm using 3 Enermax Apolish Vegas Blues 120mm for my rad, and an Apolish Blue 140mm as a rear exhaust, they do reds as well.

    The 120mm's have enough static pressure for my needs (and are quite quiet) the 140mm is inaudible.

    Also have a Bitfenix 230mm blue led for a front intake (900rpm very silent) also available in red.

    Are you using/have installed any other applications which polls the sensors? Then you can get those kind of errors with Ai Suite...

    The Cougar fans have a pretty good CFM at very low noise... and they're coming in black color too...
