New computer Case Fans and Recomend a CPU fan for my AMD 960T

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hello, I have a Thermaltake Commander MS-I with only the rear pre-installed fan. Everything is stock at the moment.
I need at least 2 more fans for my case, I was looking at Enermax TB Silence at 900 rpm. But will they be enough to cool my system? I will place on as intake in front.
The other one I'll se, bottom or top, dont know atm.

My stock amd cpu cooler is jetting off and I can't stand it. I need something that's quiet and can handle an OC to 3.8 or something. I dont want huge overclocks, it's already unlocked to 6 core.

The fans I want to use for my case I need them to move plenty air for my cpu and be as silent as my cpu cooler. 120mm
No reason to buy a silent cpu cooler and having case fans blowing my ears out.

Max 50$ for the CPU cooler.

Thanks!

Running an unlock and an overclock and wanting something to be silent and giving us a max $50 is going to be a bit tricky.

Have a look at the CM Hyper 212+ it's pretty much the nuts up to that price bracket. Downside? If you want 3.8 then you'll need 2 120mm fans on it. Check out the Scythe Gentle typhoon AP15's, they are quite quiet and very very efficient.

Something that fits your bill is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103057 the Hyper N 520. It's a great cooler and only $35 USD. 

 

As far as fans go, you can get yourself a few Yate Loon Medium-Speeds. They're not as loud as High-Speeds (which aren't loud really to begin with) and still move a pretty amount of air.

When should I really start considering the amount of airflow of the case fans? When does really someone screws the sound and goes to higher RPM case fans with bigger airflow?
I just haven't really understood how big is the part of airflow when it comes to case fans.

So that's why I dont know if I want 1000rpm 1500rpm or 2000rpm case fans.

About the CPU Cooler, COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 seems a very nice buy! But I dont see ppl recommend it often. Is it ok for slight OC?

Yate Loon cannot be found in Greece.

if it makes you feel better ...i second the n520 cpu cooler. as far as case fans go, anything above 1500 rpm is going to be loud.

the n520 has a nice flat base, which imo makes it a better choice than a 212+. also helps when applying thermal paste. coolermaster cycle flow fans are also a good choice for case fans, there some what quite, but move alot of air.

I'm considering about Mugen 2. What you guys think?

Last night I was at a PC Shop which had these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103061

The seller told me that these fans are really noisy.

So what about all this RPM thing? The Enermax TB Silence? What are they good for?

19dBa isn't THAT noisy. All case fans will make some noise. I reccomend that fan, I have it as exhaust on my storm scout. It's silent thumb.gif Scythe's Mugen 2s are good choice too.

At 2000RPM, a 120 mm fan is going to be loud so that 19 dB rating is complete bullocks. A 120 mm fan that can reach >1500 RPM without being noisy would be the GentleTyphoon AP-15. I have two of those in my case and all I hear is the air moving. Best. Fans. Ever.

OP: Mugen 2 is a pretty good cooler for the price. You should do well with that.

What about Enermax Magma and TB Silence?

Off-topic, do u guys know why on some items on amazon it sais "usually dispatched within 1-2 months"?
It means they're out of stock and if I buy it they are going to send it in 1 or 2 months?
