post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
ok i have 6 fans in my case excluding PSU and GPU thats two 120mm fans for intake in the front of my case they also cool my HDD`s
1 90mm exhaust fan and 2 90mm fans on my CM Hyper TX3

also i 80mm case fan on the side for intake
FYI the 2 120mm fans are mounted 1 behind the other blue led then standard black

in total including PSU and GPU i have 8 fans the side

i want some quiet fans so i guess 1000-2000RPM

here are some pictures showing the fans

this one shows fans mounted on CM TX3 -2X90mm

Side fan 80mm

this one shows front fan the other 120mm fan is mounted behind this one

Honestly the best option would be to cut larger holes and replace those tiny fans with nice 120mm fans if possible. A 120mm fan will be able to spin slower yet deliver more air and be quieter. Fans under 120mm suck... There isn't a very good selection of smaller fans either.

There are 92mm Gentle Typhoon fans but I think they are discontinued. They are getting hard to find. I have never heard them in real life but if they are anything like the 120mm Gentle Typhoons then they could be an option.

thats not an option for the rear 90mm fan or the side i only need 3 silent fans
3X90mm

the side and 2 front are almost silent just the exhaust and CPU fans that are noisy

If you are looking for silent 80" and 92" fans look for Nexus and the low speed 80" Panaflos. Also 80" rifle bearing fans made by Protechnic are low noise and comparatively high CFM at 5-7V.

Are you sure you can't just mod the mounting holes a little and get the 92mm fans to fit?

Instead of buying several fans why not just upgrade the case? I automatically ignore any case that has anything smaller than 120mm fans.

" means inches, sorry for being a grammar Nazi... But a 80" fan would be bigger than the entire case, like 3X as big as the case...

all i need are 3x90mm fans
my case has positive air flow so fan speed is not a issue as i said i have 3 almost silent intake fans 1 80mm and 2 120mm

just need 3 quiet 90-92mm fans 1 for exhaust and 2 for CPU

i would go with water cooling for my whole system but that would cost to much
