Arctic F12 vs F12 Silent?

I was just looking for some cheap case fans as my current ones which are the MF121L which come included with the Coolermaster MB520 case are just doing my head in. I just want quiet case fans, what is the difference? I can get 3 F12 silents for £15 or 5 Arctic F12's for £15, i can probably install 2 as an exhaust.

Take the F12. The silent is just speed limited.

Alternatively buy the P12.

Not really. Silent version is mainly for the situations where you can't have custom fan control/curve. They are otherwise same fan, silent just has top speed limited. You could do same with software without kneecapping the fans potential.

What are your specs and temps? Have you tried lowering fan speeds?
