Hi guys !

I'm about to buy 4 new fans to replace those in my case and I wonder if there is any difference between Be Quiet! Pure Wings 2 and Silent Wings 3 in terms of cooling/airflow.

I don't mind paying a little extra for Silent Wings 3 if they are exactly the same but more silent.

Thanks ! :)

The Silent WIngs 3 come with anti-vibration mounting, otherwise they are nearly identical

Perfect ! Thanks for your reply.

I'll go with four Silent Wings 3 PWM 140mm then :D

They have different bearings as well. The Silent Wings should be a bit quieter, the Pure Wings flow a bit more air at max, according to the bequiet web site. At 140mm I'd lean towards the Silent Wings. At 120mm, not sure. (At 120mm I'd get Noctua A12x25...)
