    I’ve had quite a few Arctic Fans over the years, and have found them mostly very quiet and long lived (you get the odd bad one with a slight buzz when you put your ear close like any fan). If you drill holes in the side of the mounting towers you can use cable ties to fit them to any heatsink where the fins are not too closely spaced – they are not high pressure fans! The only real problem as a case fan is that they react badly if the panel they are fixed to is not rigid enough – Dedshete from Wilmslow Audio or Falcon usually provides a cure but is not cheap.
