Hi everyone, my DF-85 is starting to get noisy as the fans are starting to go.  On a tight budget with everything the way it is nowadays.  Looking for suggestions on either cheap but silent fans vs getting a case with enough airflow to cool my 3080.  I can't justify getting another case due to this one doing the job however if its cheaper than replacing 4-7 fans I can live with it. 

 

Thanks!

Well any other case you're buying will require the purchase of at least 4 or more fans anyways since the most I've seen bundled are like 3. And those cases wouldn't be cheap either since most would be RGB up the wahzoo.
