On the contrary, I think it's silly to throttle fan speeds when they use so little power, are so cheap, and last for so long. The only reason to use a fan controller is if you have your CFM calculated and you know exactly what kind of airflow you need for optimal performance and/or noise is an issue.
Hmmm...Unless you have some kind on noise going on in the back ground....I can hear my 2 TY-140's running at 100%. I wouldnt call it loud by any means. I dont throttle my fans so I can save power, or fan life, or any of that. I throttle the fans becouse having them ramped up at 100% cools no better on idle than half of them off, and the other half at 50%. it make's no noise at all. dont even hear moving air but its all opinion on that. I dislike hearing my computer if its not doing anything, if im in a game or doing somthing and its getting hot and trying to cool its self, it can make some noise, but my fans are almost never at 100%, even when doing Prime or IBT runs.

Either of the 3 coolers will do you great justice, as they are the best.

Is the Fan PWM? so it can be controller perfectly by Mobo?
And the red version is a Red fan or is it more like orange?
i realy think that fan would look good

The only fan I hear at all is the inner VGA one that blows from behind the HDD bays, but I have that one hooked up to my fan controller. My 100% load temps never get above mid-60s, and my idle temps are mid 30's to 40 at most.


I have the lamptron Fc6

Yes, the Silver Arrow fans (TY-140) are PWM fans...

If you want LED fans with the H70, these are a good choice:

Are these better than the Thermaltake Cyclo
the one you suggested are more silent?

http://www.pixmania.com/es/es/728806...clo-red-p.html

Also can you recomend me any Red LED 140mm fans to remplace the fans on the back of HAF-X?
i want to remplace that fan too but being 140mm i have hard to find a red led fan does coolermaster have 140mm megaflow led fans ?

Ok right now i am mostly thinking of IF i buy a new fan instead of the thermaltake spinq VT i am leaning most toward either Silver arrow with a 120mm red led fan (is 120mm right?) or Zalmen 9900 max red or H70 with a red led fan

OK So here is Importan question of theese Led fan who is best
performance, long-life and silence:


Enermax T.B APOLLISH :


Thermaltake pc cyclo :
Cyclo look so cool but i think is more noisy?

Cooljag Look extremely good:
But is Very hard to find Where in Europe is this sold?
if it is sold in europe at all i dont think it is

One question if i use the 2 top fans on HAf-x to take out air (2 led fans on top look cool)
to balance the airflow so it reach better to the GPU should i install another 120mm GPU fan or is having a CPU fan conected to the mobo enough?
say a SpinQ Vt or Zalman9900 or what ever i choose.

Right now for CPU fans i am searious considering the Zalman9900
i feel it has long lifte also which is good.
but is very huge? dont want it too huge?.... risk of breaking mobo etc..

Also i been adviced to keep the spinq VT and use it first then if it run hot just install another fan ... but i havent decided if i will follow that advice or just jump straith say to a zalman 9900 max

I have 2 options now

1. Zalman 9900 Red max as CPU Fan
2. Go for some heatsink like megahalems or silver arrow etc...
and pair them with Thermaltake Cyclo 120mm
the fan look fantastic lot of patterns:
http://www.cod4boards.com/forum/show...rmaltake-cyclo

I could maybe.... use this fan as rear fan instead?
thing is the rear fan in HAF-X is 140mm so maybe 120mm be a bit too smale?

My HAF-X has two red 200mm exhausting out top. Rear 120mm red intake in rear blowing into the 2x TY-140s in the Silver Arrow (which I very highly recommend.) Red side 200mm intake on the GPU and red 200mm intake on the front. All five LED fans are.wired to the switch on the HAF-X for when I want them off.

It looks amazing at night. I'll take some pics later if you want. The LEDs are not bright or overbearing at all. The two on top especially look awesome.
