Quieter fan than stock Hyper 212+?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My Hyper 212 is running a little loud. I have three case fans, but usually only one is on. I just checked its RPM and it shows as over 2,000 right now! This seems a little high to me to keep the CPU at the current temp (34C).

So I was wondering whether there may be better choices out there? I have a spare Gentle Typhoon AP-15 but that's only got a 3 pins controller cable...

Thanks for any suggestions!

Is the fan throttling on? If yes, try reseating your heatsink. If no, check your bios for an option called "smart fan" or "q-fan" or something like that and enable it.

You could either A. buy a fan controller, or B. buy something like CM R4's which are extremely quiet but push lots of air.

I have a fan controller... it's controlling the case fans only though (1 x front intake, 1 x side intake and 1 x rear exhaust, although only the side intake is on when I'm just browsing).

Also it would seem that the stock Hyper 212 + IS an R4.... I'll check out the bios smile.gif

I like to keep my Hyper212+ fans on a fan controller biggrin.gif

If you really want to replace them though, Cougar makes some nice quiet fans. Also Gentle Typhoons.

Heres the one that comes with the 212+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103069

This is what apple was referring to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103061 and i have 2 of these, 1 in red and 1 in blue, and they are extremely quiet and do actually move a pretty decent amount of air.
