this sticky is awesome...however


Q
Anyone know of a case that can fit at least 2x 200mm fans in it?

I wanna push a lot of air as QUIETLY as possible

i hate noise..problem is my tower moves around too frequently to set up WC or any other cooling....so I'm forced to stick with fans

Your best bet is to go with 120mm fans but get an adapter to run them at 7v. Have a look at the Noctua range of fans. Typically with air, volume isn't what you're after, but the ability to keep an adequate airflow throughout your case constantly moving, refreshing the coolers with colder air.

No worries CM Haf932 has three 230mm fans preinstalled (or Haf9322 which has 2), not silent due to the extensive use of mesh but pretty quiet to me at least and great airflow.

Nice looking case there .

Another consideration is the Lancool Dragonlord PC-K60 but it only has:

1, 120mm exhaust fan @ 1500 rpm
1, 140mm front intake fan @ 1000 rpm
2, 140mm top exhaust fans @ 1000 rpm each

Lots of rubber gromits though for vibration dampening.

I'm looking for a few black/white 120mm fans for my Noctua CPU cooler.

I like the design of the Arctic Cooling fans, but was wondering if their rubber cage design didn't allow them to be clipped to a CPU cooler. I'd also like to know how they perform and what other people think of them.

I just bought a ZeroTherm Core92 heatsink and fan for my cpu. Noticed there was nothing about them on the forums so I'll post a mini review. You can pick them up for $29 at the moment which is quite a good price. After reading a few reviews, they pulled some good numbers for a budget system.

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=13517

After installing mine, I instantly noticed a 20-25 degree drop in temperatures under load. I was getting around 65+ degrees with the stock 775 cooler on my E8400, but after installing this, its dropped to around 45, maxing out around 50 degrees when running Prime95. Doesnt help that my computer is next to a ducted heating vent, but I'm sure lower temps are possible for those with towers in cooler locations.

Default Big air build

My new build is performing well;- THe CM Sniper case has 3x200mm fans with built in controller. I have them on minimum rpm and it's very quiet.

I'm also using Noiseblocker fans - 140mm bottom intake & 120mm on the Prolimatech mega shadow & these are also very quiet.

i7 CPU @ 3.8Ghz is idling @ 32c. Running Prime95 its 60c (ambient temps are around 20c).

I couldn't be happier

I've recently purchased a Zalman CNPS10X Extreme which has its own remote, is there anyway I can connect this to a normal fan controller (I'm using a NZXT Sentry 2) instead? I will use a preset setting if it is too much of a hassle, but am just wondering if/how I can approach this?
I'm fairly new to aftermarket cooling, so any advice would be appreciated.

Hey guys, thinking that my Phenom 9850 is running too hot and causing my PC resets under load (see here). What aftermarket air cooler would you guys recommend to a guy with a budget? Not wanting to spend big $$ so after the bang for buck option

Thanks!

Get the TT FRIO, its got great cooling for $70. just make sure it fits in your case. my TT V9 case is probly under size, as i have to kinda push on my side panel to get it back on.

great temps. i7 920 @ 4ghz 1.35vcore getting 68 degrees load and 30 degrees idle.
