ok so I need fans for my case and rad compartment ... the sheer number of fans ( 16 at this point ) requires that I need to adress the noise situation .... The obvious choice is the noctua model , but the price tag and the coffee and cream motif would be a challenge . So after much research I happened upon the cougar 120's . The numbers look good as well as the $$ so why is it that most peeps dont like them ? Is it some actual performence spec I'm missing or a case of orangaphobia
