The Chromax version of the NF-S12A. This fan is meant to be a case fan, optimized for air flow. Note that there are 4 included anti vibration pads of each color, so if you want to cover both sides you'll need to buy extras.

Best fans on the market! Not much more needs to be said. Highly recommend adding these to any build. Worth the $$$.

from completed build Onyx - An All Black Futureproof Mini-ITX Build
Initially I was worried after unboxing these for the first time, they feel kinda cheap at first but once you install one you'll be a believer, they're pretty much silent and they move an impressive amount of air, and you'll be able to run these at higher RPMs because they're so much more quiet than other 120mm fans.

Went with also a Noctua fan that had to be 120mm to fit with the case for exhaust.

These are the best non-rgb fans on the market. the colored bumpers and performance make them an easy buy for me. they are silent, push a good amount of air and aren't brown, checks all of my boxes
