My cable management is awesome, I love this case for that reason. Would higher cfm fans be louder because right now my tf3s hit 70 on 100% and I would like to bring down that noise level, And if some more fans would do the trick then I might go for it, but the 800d uses 140mm fans so I wouldnt be able to reuse them if I went water cooling.

@willy I would be willing to modify my case.

shop around a bit. larger fans can move a lot of air quietly at a low rpm and you can also find a few good smaller fans with a high cfm and low decibal level. start with an aftermarket cpu cooler and watch your temps and just go from there

@liljoe
I'm mostly bothered with the very loud gpu fans because of crossfire, and my case does not have than many options for adding more fans. Can I get acceptable temps and noise in this case with crossfire by going with more air cooling?

edit: Is this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233082) better than the 212 because its $6 cheaper right now. $27 compared to $30+$3

not better at all. that fan only has a cfm of about 60 max. throw some of these in there replacing the stock fans. at high speed they move over 130cfm at around 45db and can be turned down to reduce noise if needed. your case has 3(?) fans already in it if my guess is right. prolly 120 or 140mm in size. also saw on another thread it has 4 addition mounts for more 120mm fans. get 4 of those, throw them in there, even replace your exhaust with one if you want to and your case will basically be a fairly silent hurricane lol

The case fans are 140mm, so you are telling me that the 212 is better? ok I think I will get those fans, but I was wondering if a fan controller would be a good Idea for those fans. also do you by any chance know what the rating is for the stock fans, and if it would be worth it to replace them? would those ultra kaze fans work well with a radiator in case I ever went water cooling?
btw thanks for your answers they are very helpful.

Get some scythe gentle typhoons. Quiet, good cfm, but they have great static pressure meaning they are good radiator fans . Ultra kazes are bloody loud and get trounce d by the gentle typhoons in everyway.

If I could get the gentle typhoons for <$20 than I would, are yate leons or gelid fans good for case fans?
