I know of ball baring, rifle baring, and sleeve barings. What is the difference between the three. I know how ball barings work, what about the other two?

i know rifle bearings are pretty quiet

Fans with sleeve bearings are lower-noise than a comparable ball-bearing fan but one common penalty is a shorter service life, though the better-quality sintered metal sleeves, don't suffer this drawback.

I am having issues finding infomation on the rifle bearings. Some one from CM could probaly fill in that blank.

With the way I am I'm liable to build a new computer before the fans die...if they live longer than 1-1/2 years.

Maby some one should come out with a hydrolic fan system...then you would keep 'em forever. Be very very quiet too.

I've heard of hydro bearings.. or something similar. I think they are very expensive, I'm not too sure.

Panaflo makes excellent fans.. 82 cfm for 35 dba. that's excellent

When I read that last part my jaw nearly hit the floor, until I realized you were talking about a 120mm fan...

If that were an 80mm that'd be ungodly... :shock:
