Want to replace the fans of my rig

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hello guys i want t o replace the stock fans of my case with something better.
i also would like to change the 2 xspc fans with something better. i was thinking about getting this two under the radiator http://www.aquatuning.it/product_inf...20x25mm--.html
and the stock xspc on the top of the rad.
are those 5400rpm fans much noisier than the stock rasa ones?
also my case has a spot for a 80 mm fan behiind the cpu. should i put one in there too? will that somehow help cooling the cpu.

50 dB is a pretty loud fan... sounds a bit like a jet engine lol. Most stock fans are far below 5400rpm, Typically you'll want to stick around the 3000 rpms. In a WC loop, passing air across the cpu waterblock won't cause benefit because of the lack of fins (essence of how a heatsink works)

Just focus on getting cold air to your rads. That'll help you the most.
