I've been doing some research into my first computer build and have come to a cross-roads when choosing my CPU fan.
I have been told of various bearing types such as ball, sleeve, rifle, magnetic and fluid.
I'm sure there's no outright winner from any of these fan types (Because every rule has its exceptions). I'm looking for the type that tends to be most reliable as well the quietest.
I'm aware that this may come across as an opinion-based question. If answers could possibly give examples of past experience or even records of comparisons between different types(both noise and reliability) I think that would avoid that problem.
Any input is much appreciated, thanks!
