Or; just get the H80; with a fan controller. As in; a 3.5 or 5.25 bay style fan controller; hook up the 2 corsair fans; and the front ap 181. Turn it all down when just browsing the web/uneventful tasks; then back up when playing a game or whatever. And it doesn't have to be that high..
I installed a fan controller (Scythe Master Ace Kaze 3.5, 2 fan controller), used the Noctua Y splitter to connect the 2 92mm fans on my U9B SE2 into one; and that's now channel 1, and the AP is channel 2. I run my fans at 1000rpm for the 92mm (silent), and 500 for the front AP which is basically silent as well for normal use. Keeping my GPU fan on auto (Asus GTTX 580 DCUII). I ramp up the fans to 1300 and 750 respectively for gaming. Still isn't a whole lot louder; but the temps are indeed affected in a positive way.
If you really care about silence, good quality fans and a fan controller are a must. IMO.

This makes a lot of sense, thanks. I'll look at that controller, any other controllers people are happy with on this case?

Also, every H80 I see installed that uses both fans seems to cut it EXTREMELY close with the space between the CPU block and the inside fan.. Admiral Mudkipz's pictures above show more clearance then most and that's barely making it.

Does this clearance vary from MB to MB? Anyone have experience with an H80 using both fans on an Asus Maximus Gene V? Also FYI, I've noticed on Amazon the H80 has dropped in price several times over the last week that I've been looking at it. Started out at $101 now down to $86.. Similar trend on newegg but not as low. May pull the trigger here in a minute.

Re: 2 fans on H80, I dont have problem with Rampage IV Gene (X79), so it should be fine with Maximus V Gene
There are few ppl here using Maximus V Gene with H80

PS: $86USD for H80 in US?! OMG.... they are selling $13X AUD in OZ~~~ damn!

Hey guys,

Has anyone got a recommendation for a good, quiet 180mm fan for the front of this case?

I originally replaced the stock fan with a Phobya 180mm fan which I was very pleased with initially, but after a couple of weeks it started to make an intermittent ticking noise. I replaced it for a new one and now that one is doing the same thing.

I don't have the original fan still, so I'm looking for something other than a Phobya fan that will fit in the case and be as quiet as is reasonably possible.

Thanks!

Stock one on lower setting not good enough?

Can also fan control it down to about 400 rpm, or you can also install a 140mm in there and have many more fan options

I read somewhere in here (but I can't find the post) that if the FP55 is used, the original bay covers can still cover up the mount. Is this true?

Yep. I'm using that FP55 now. Originally had 2 SSD and 1 HDD; but I've moved my HDD out of the case entirely. And put a 3.5 fan controller in =).

Also an update to my USB front port issue. The new part arrived today from Silverstone. Tested and working great. The entire ordeal dealing with Silverstone directly (albeit after I thumbs downed them here... tongue.gif) was around 3 weeks. Fairly decent honestly. Though I've heard NOTHING from the actual store I bought it from... Lol... I won't be buying from them anymore. tongue.gif. I'll stick to PC Case Gear even if I have to spend more on shipping for cases tongue.gif.

there are no "quiet" 180mm fans per se. anything beyond 700rpm on a 180mm fan becomes loud regardless of what brand / kind you get.

with that said, you can wait for the AP182 to get released by silverstone and just put that on a mobo header and have the system control the speed of the fan depending on thermal need.

if you need the fan "now" you can order the FM181 fan from silverstone. that is a ball bearing fan so it might be quieter then the ap181 with sleeve bearing. again, just put it on the mobo header and control the speed via software.
