    Hey fellas.
    I need 3 case fans that can pull air through an air filter on my case. My stock ones ain't pullin jack. RGB would be nice.
    Any suggestions?

    Is the consensus that those are better than NF-P12 redux in a restrictive filter/rad? unable to find static pressure values.
    (forget RGB)

    Also considering this because it is so cheap.
    How much of a difference does the SO version make over these?

    though compared to the stats i found online, the default rosewill stats dont seem too bad.
    Model number: DF1202512SELN
    • Size: 120x120x25mm
    • Voltage: 7~13.2 VDC
    • Speed: 1,500 rpm
    • Airflow: 50.4 CFM
    • Pressure: 1.93 mm H2O
    • Noise: 25.6 dBA

    I googled ml120 static pressure: The Corsair ML120 PRO LED White 120mm Premium Magnetic Levitation Fan uses a static pressure flow design capable of 12 – 75CFM at a pressure of 0.2 – 4.2mmH20. Aug 2, 2016 - no doubt the RGB version is the same.. different LEDs

    The SP120 are cheaper but noisier

    Yea but I saw that was at like 2400 rpm or something crazy.
    Also wasn't sure if the pressure ratings were bogus like some CFM ratings seem to be.

    yeah, but you won't be running them at full power/speed... clearly

    SP120 HP is 3.1

    Phanteks PH-F120MP are good. They have nice sound and high enough pressure rating at lower speeds to move plenty of air thorugh grill and filter .. assuming vent is same size as fan.

    Best are probably be quiet! Silent Loop 3 120mm normal or High Speed. Normal run up to 1450rpm which is as fast as my case fans ever run, except in extreme temp weather when filters are dirty, so the High Speed give more speed/performance upo to 2200rpm. I don't need 2200rpm but do on rare occasions see 1600-1700rpm. ;)

    Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM for sure. From my experience, it's quieter than the ML120 (which I do own) and does a better job at cooling too. I can understand if you don't like the color scheme though. I also own the Noiseblocker e-Loops, but I wouldn't recommend them unless you have space for a gasket of some sort to prevent the fan blades from rubbing against whatever you're mounting it on.
