Thanks!
Anything second-hand or cheap on ebay with 4 heatpipes or more (generally), and a Yateloon D12SH-12 fan, also found on ebay.

Best way to go, just like cars... don't buy new! (YL fan new is fine though)

Otherwise check the 'for sale' section of the ocau forum, something is bound to come up for a bargain price.

Wanted to add to the thread a good site to buy from if its not here already, it might be but I cant see it on the front of the sticky. If you're looking for fans or cooling check out www.frozencpu.com. They have some excellent prices for can's of air, fans of all kinds from 120x25mm Deltas that move 110CFM to the screaming 220CFM Deltas as well as other decent ones like the 120x25mm LED ones I picked up that are rated for 70CFM and only cost me $8 each.

Shipping can be expensive if you go over the weight limit so be aware of that, or do what I did and purchase stuff with your housemate / friends to split the shipping cost because once you got over the 13 ounce weight its a flat charge.

Default Crossfire 6850

Hi guys,

Have a CM690 w side window.

About to get the following bits delivered

i7, Formula III mobo and 2 HD 6850's.

A bit worried about cooling during the Melbourne summer so ordered two Scythe 120mm Slipstreams.

The only fans I have are the ones that came with the case. 3 in total.

I'm going to place these as two top exhaust fans. What do you guys reckon?

Hey Gav

I did the same thing a week ago, cooling-wise: 2 x Noctua 14cm fans: top? bottom? No idea.

After a bit of searching I found that the jury is out about pos/neg fan pressure.

So I put one in the bottom of the case, one in the top, linx temps dropped 5 degrees. (73/68)

Cheers

ps WTF am I doing? It's Christmas eve and Fat Yaks & Stellas in the fridge, bye

Have to say I'm quite happy with the Yate Loon 120mm x 25mm UV Reactive LED Fan - UV Blue (D12SH-124UB). These things have excellent air flow and arn't even that loud even at full volume. Definitely recommend these for use as HDD coolers or whatever else you want to use LED fans for.

Can anyone advise whether Scythe Slipstream 120mm 1200RPM would make a good CPU fan? Does it have enough air pressure or whatever is required? I get the impression they are good for case fans only...?

Thanks.

I use the standard Noctua NH-U12P SE 2 setup for my cpu. Two fans and a good heatsink, but still I can't manage to get 4ghz on my CPU, and 3.8ghz runs around 85C load. Maybe water cooling one day...

I went to a megahalem from the NHU12P - 10c difference, but most of that would have been from the case upgrade. Most benchmarks only show a few degree difference. Don't think the Corsair would be all that much different.

I honestly wonder if we've hit a wall with aircooling.

EDIT: Recommend you investigate faster/higher static pressure fans?

i just buy the best CFM/Scone rated fans.

then put them on a fan controller to keep noise down even more.

Hey guys i wanna upgrade some of my fans in my 600T.

On the top exhaust fan would it be better to stick with a 200mm or 2x120? If so what is a good 120mm case fan, ill probably get 4 as i am putting 2 at the front as well (in the 5.25" bays and behind the 200 fan below). Anyone done anything with the front 200mm fan? Not much room in there only 200x20 fan would fit.

Also, i have a h70 and wondering if i should upgrade the fans on it? I have read something about need high Air Pressures for cooler fans?

Im not too fussed about the noise of it, as long as it isn't stupidly loud. Only had the system setup for a day and i find the big 200mm fans dont seem to be pushing much air.

Cheers

Hi, this is sort of "Hardware Wanted" but anyways..

Stock Intel CPU Fan is annoying, very. It also does a 'very' average job of dissipating heat (even lathered with thermal goop) from the HSF that my Q9450 is producing even at stock everything. Whats a half decent chunk of copper and metal with a QUIET fan going to cost me, who has one laying around they want to sell?
