Noobish cooling question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi

I now have a new system in my case(P8P67 Deluxe, i7 2600k, HD6850, 16GB RAM, Corsair PSU 750w v2, 1 SSD and 2 HDD disc).

I am using my old case and the system currently is just too loud so i will be replacing my old 120mm case fans with 3 new ones. I want to have a really quiet setup, as much as possible, so can you guys recommend me some good case fans for me that will be quiet(under 20dBA) and have good performance. I would also like to have those which my MB can regulate automatically.

As for other parts do you suggest replacing any other fan aswell to make the setup more quiet, like CPU one ?

Thanks for answers.

Gentle Typhoons for your case although chances are the majority of your noise comes from you GPU and maybe CPU fans. which specific Gfxcard are you using?

that site offers a 16DB fans.

If you look around you just may find the site that ships to Europe
EDIT: from my experience graphics cards that follow this guideline for their cards are loud

try to make sure that the noise actually form the case fans or else you will buy quiet fans for nothing. your computer can only be as quiet as your loudest fan. keep that in mind
