those 200mm fans that come with case are horrible for any kind of radiator or heatsink. They have almost zero static pressure. They make great case fans, but for a radiator you definately need a 120mm fan.

I'm going to agree w/ this. I had the 230mm CM fan from the 932 on an RS360 and I felt it was really not best way to approach it. Use the decent ones included in the Rasa kit. if you wanna get some great inexpensive ones, get some Yate Loons, I prefer the medium speed for a great balance of noise and performance.

I don't think anyone was suggesting using the 220mm fans as the primary means of cooling the radiator. There is too much air leakage around the sides of the radiator for them to make any difference in the cooling of the radiator.

I think the question was more of "should I/do I need to get rid of the 220mm fans, or can they stay, will they be beneficial to air flow if left in over the radiator while the radiator has it's own fans in a push configuration?" At least that's how I took it, and that's why I recommended leaving the 220mm fans, as I don't think they're taking away from cooling (but I could be wrong).

use them (200mm) to make a usb fan to cool yourself this summer. make a tricked-out stand for them and add some grills to protect wondering fingers wink.gif. Better than running your a/c all day in terms of cost biggrin.gif

lol very smart idea. I left my case fan in. It actually pulls air from the radiator plus around the radiator, as I'm trying my best to keep everything cool now that I no longer have CPU or GPU fans running circulating the air in the case.

Those 200mm fans are big babies, no need for fan grills. Now, I accidentally stuck my pinky finger in a 2100 rpm panaflo.... jesus it ripped gashes deep into my finger that bled everywhere and finally closed a week later... The skin still hasn't fully covered the gashes. And the fan keeps on humming away like nothing happened.... Gives a new meaning to silent bud deadly tongue.gif

I just have one more question, could I use this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200592032053&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

As a fan controller for all 3 fans on the Rad??

looks very simple, but I would go for a dedicated fan controller. Try out the fans, if they are too noisy, get a controller. Be careful w/ Ebay, lots of the stuff they sell is junk and you don't want to risk that thing taking out your components.

I've used Lamptron and they work great smile.gif

Well I've got one of those things coming anyway for another project so I will put it through it's paces n see what it can do :-D

As for a controller I just want the simplicity of one knob but I know I will eventually get high power fans, I'm looking at 2.5a fans at the moment so that rules out all fan controllers..... I think...

Edit: I have noticed the lamptron fc3 has 30w per channel so that is definately worth a look
