so here's my dilemma. i have a haf 912 with different fan options. It has a top exhaust for 1 200mm or 2 120mm a rear 120 mm 2 cpu cooler fans on the hyper 212+ and 2 120m or 1 200mm front intake.
i had bought 2 120mm bitfenix spectre pro 120 mm and 2 200mm but since bitfenix makes their products to big had to send back the other the 200 mm. what I'm wondering is should i keep the 2 120 mm spectre pros in the front or add 2 Canada Computers | Cooling | Cooler Master 200mm Red LED Silent MegaFlow Case Fan (R4-LUS-07AR-GP). I would prefer red leds so is Canada Computers | Cooling | Cooler Master 120mm Red LED SickleFlow 2000 RPM Long Life Case Fan (R4-L2R-20AR-R1) this better for airflow? i know there's a different type of bearings for fans too and don't know what's really better. any advice in this would be GREATLY appreciated.
also anything at canada computers would be best as I'm going to London tomorrow.

Baring and High air flow fans are what you want anything that mentions "Silent" is perfect. and of course the Color is up to you, suprised you even mentioned that. Sickle flow and high Air flow are good. You must be Overclocking this to have such an afinity for air flow like that.

I plan on it, I just want it to match my color scheme and be efficient. what would you say is better 200m or 2 120 mm the 200mm is 110 cfm at 700 rpm which that rpm to me seems REALLY slow compared to the 2 120mm at 69cfm and 2000rpm. i read that i should use FBD fans on my cpu cooler to avoid warping so i might move them to my cooler if that would work good, but that leaves 3 spots open, the front, top and the 120mm rear.

Use 200mm fans wherever possible, unless you always have headphones on. Your ears will thank you.

so 1 200mm exhaust the 700 rpm 110cfm is good enough for thetop? ill move my bitfenix to the cpu cooler. havent decided about front 1 200mm vs the 2. i kind liked teh look of 2 stacked through the mesh. and ill put the 2000 rpm fan that came with my cpu cooler in the exhaust unless anyone has any other sugestions from products from canada computer.
