    Suggestions 120mm Fans For Cooling HT Cabinet Furniture?

    I'm doing almost this exact same thing in my entertainment center, except I just have a single 120mm exhaust fan, with the intake just around the door gaps. I first started off with a rosewill, it was decently quiet but started growling after about 3 months. I replaced it with a vantec...

    I ordered from on Sunday morning, still waiting on a final confirmation, but when I log in and check order status, it says "backordered" Correct me if I'm wrong but it's really only HP that is going to get more of these things right?
