Cooler Master Hyper N520 Fan Replacement...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Cooler Master Hyper N520, and I'm looking to replace the fans on it.

It's been in this build for a little over a year. I can't remember my temps back then (somewhere around 40), but I've noticed that lately they've been hovering around the mid-50's with nothing but internet searching, youtube and movie watching. Sometimes hitting as high as 65. So this all got me thinking.

First off some specs about my system:

Hackintosh Build
OSX 10.7.2
ASUS P6X58D-E (LGA1366)
Intel Core i7-950 (SLIGHTLY OC'd)
NVidia XFX GeForce GTX 285
24GB DDR3 RAM
1 x 300GB WD Raptor
1 x 500GB WD Black
4 x 1TB Samsung
1 x 2TB WD EARS

I'm looking for 2 SERIOUSLY silent fans to replace the two stock CM fans on the N520 with. But I also need something that's going to HOPEFULLY bring my temps back into the 40 range. So either the most powerful fans with the lowest noise, or the lowest noise fans that have awesome cooling.

Any suggestions or hidden gems in the fan world?

I used to have the n520 also, But i got the hyper 212 as i was not liking the n520 to much.

finding 92mm fans that are decent are hard i would say,
if you want a sleek look just go for the h70 its great smile.gif
