Fan Suggestions for CM 690 II Advanced - Page 2

post #11 of 20
OP, what is your idea of loud fans?

I'm currently using 5 Cooler Master XtraFlo fans in the same case you are looking at. I've got them connected to a fan controller and I can honestly not complain about the noise when they are set to low speed. If you turn the fan controller up they do become rather noticeable though.

Do note though that they have 4pin connectors.

Well,

I currently have one 140mm Noctua FLX in the front, and I don't hear that fan a lot. The only noise I hear currently is from the Arctic Freezer Pro CPU cooler fans.

So, basically, I'm looking at a quiet system, where the fan noise does not become obvious.

For fans in the 120mm size Scythe GT 14/15, for a 140mm fan the TY-140(silver arrow's stock fans) are AMAZING.
I was quite interested in the SA as it was the cheapest in comparison with the D14 & the H100, backup by very strong reviews.

But, I was also keen to go for something that looks neat, as the SA & the D14 are massive. Hence, the tilt towards H100. But, if I'm only looking @ 4.3-4.5 Ghz OC, then, the H100 should do fine, right?

The only concern with the H100 is that it may end up being noisier. Hence, the question, about swapping fans on the H100, for quieter ones.

I take back what I said about the H100 falling short of the SilverArrow/D-14. it cooles slightly better but dose make more noise.

Rad's are weird when it comes to fans, rad's perfer High static pressure over raw CFM. So most people use 120x38mm fans on a rad.I am warning you though they make lots of noise. the saving grace about the g100 is you can adjust the RPM of the fans it comes with making them quiet, but the Silver Arrow/D-14 make less noise.
Anytime you try to lower the nosie level, your going to lose airflow/CFM/Static pressure. If you are looking for a silent cooler, I would get the silver arrow. It makes alomst No noise. I can hardly hear the TY-140's at all, even at 100% power.

You're right. Wherever I read about the H100, the general consensus is that it's performance is good, but the noise is definitely more than the best air coolers, like the SA & D14.

Hence, I raised the question if it was possible to swap quieter 120mm fans in place of the stock ones on the radiator. It would be great if someon'es attempted this, and could share their views?

I don't have experience with the H100 in particular, but I have a similarly sized radiator (with similar FPI) in the top of my 690II. Even with very quiet fans it is louder than my best friend's Noctua something-something9. The fans themselves aren't what makes the rad noisy; it's the air becoming turbulent in the fins.

As for good, quiet fans I can strongly recommend the GELID Wing 12PL. The motor itself and the fan blades are both very, very quiet. Just holding one that's on in your hand you can't hear it until it's an inch or two from your ear. They're also four pin fans.

However, they are expensive (~19 apiece) and they move quite a bit of air which means turbulence is a problem. In my 690II even before I put in the radiators it was rather whooshy. No hums or buzzes, but lots of whooshing. I did run them at full RPM though.

Silverstone Air Penetrators are great radiator fans. They cost an arm and a leg, however. At least $25 per 120mm fan.

If your looking for quiet opperation, get the Silver Arrow. The TY-140's are ugly as sin, but flow amazing and make almost no noise. by the time you get the $110 H100 and purchace any fans worth anything youll be in the whole ALOT of cash. Decent fans cost 10-25 bucks. Silver Arrow comes with two silent fans, TIM, and is amazing. D-14 is just as epic but for a tad more money. Both are loads cheaper than the H100.

Well, I've now got the delivery of the 690 II advanced case, and have installed my components in the case.
I've postponed the CPU cooler purchase as short on funds at the moment, So, currently, living with my Arctic Freezer for the time being.

One thing I did notice that I had a few issues getting my system wired up in the 690 II. I could not get the 8pin power connector from the PSU to my P67 board from behind the MOBO, as it was short.

Infact, I have now managed to get the power cable in, just, that too, over my graphics card, and when all the other cables re managed well, this is one cable that goes across.

I'll post some pictures to show the point.

Other than than, the case looks great, and now, I'll be modding the fans (over the weekend) to Add some blue LEDS.

The stock fans can do their job pretty well but I have mine with 6 Gentle Typhoons (silent>cfm for me).

Top: 2x GT exhaust
Back: 1x GT exhaust
Front: 1x GT intake
Bottom: 2x GT intake

That config was the best from what I tried, that 6 fans plus: intake PSU + exhaust GPU makes a good balance. Take care of the dust.

Good luck.
