Scythe Gentle Typhoons ?

I have been hearing alot about these fans I will be getting a Black Ice GTX 360 Radiator which needs good high speed fans will these do I will be doing a push/pull configuration with 3 fans pushing and 3 pulling. ? Also I am from the UK so want to be 100% sure that these are the ones people are talkin about http://www.candccentral.co.uk/scythe...-1850-rpm.html these are the 1850RPM ones they have a air flow of 57.6 but i have seen fans that are over 2000RPM also have a air flow over 80.0 so won't those ones be batter with this GTX360 Rad ?

for the gtx, you just want over ~1600 (when the GTX starts out performing the GTS). More air is better, but you should be happy with either (make sure you take into account individual dB levels to make sure you are happy with how loud each fan will be and take into account 6 of them. That's why a lot of people drop down to the 1850s. The best thing is to have a fan controller and keep them quiet when you are in normal use and turn them up when you are pushing it.

Can i get a fan controller to control 6 fans ? and do they have to be connected to the controller itself ? am guessing the controller will be connected to the motherboard sorry it's jus that never used a fan controller

you can use a program to do it off the mobo, but the easiest ones are either for a bay slot, or if you are out of those they make some for 3.5 bay/expansion slots. Here is a full selection of all the kinds... browse and find what is best for you ( you can also use y-splitters to run multiple fans off a single control http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l2/g47/...ntrollers.html

I like the simple ones with just plain knobs... simplistic and easy to use

Thanks for that damn that means with a fan controller I can get something like the Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm 4250 RPM Cooling Fans plus their only 25mm thick I thought they were 38mm? I can imagine those 6 with a GTX360 Wow am already getting exited
