What's the best supersize case fan?

Index 2: Airflow - 120mm Fans

Remember that how much air a fan can push isn't everything - you should also see how loud a fan is, and possibly most importantly, how much air it can push per dBA.

The 120mm Scythe Gentle Typhoon and Sharkoon Silent Eagle 1000 have been included for reference as they're our favourite 120mm fans. Please read how we tested to see how we generated these results and what they mean.
