What Fans and Fan Controller to Get?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am gonna be using the Hyper 212 EVO and the HAF 922 Case (and the fans that come with the case, so no replacement fans) for this configuration. What is a good set of fans to clip on the EVO for Pull/Push? What set-up would you suggest? Also, what is a good fan controller? I want the fans to have good airflow, relatively low noise, and be under $50 total, give or take $10.

Thanks everyone!

Not sure on the fans, for quality and all round I like scythe gentle typhoons, the AP15 (1850rpm) is a great fan, they can be a little pricey, should still be within budget though. Yate Loon also make great fans, the high speed (2200rpm) would be a fine choice with a fan controller.

For a controller I'd recommend Lamptron. Best quality controllers. I've got a FC3 and it's perfect for my needs. They have other models that show RPM, have more channels and one that has sliders instead of knobs.
Check them out here and see which is going to be best for you. If you're in the US I think FrozenCPU stocks them, I know Amazon does.

The NZXT ones have more of an in your face bling factor but they have widespread issues with ALOT of fans, causing buzzing which IMO is more annoying than fan noise.

You shouldn't need a larger PSU since it only draws power needed for the fans, so if you are only using one fan on each channel that only uses up 4 watts a fan is a total draw of 24 watts plus give it a watt or two for the controller. But it just plugs into your molex. What psu do you have?

use either the fans it comes with or go get a blademaster, the original fan that comes with the hyper212+
you don't need push pull, it won't help you too much

The 212 is great cooler, but i dont like the blademaster. I switched it out and have the blademaster by my GPU's and its the loudest fan in the case and not much more performance...

I saw about a 7C drop when i did a push pull, so I like it.
