(might want to fill in your system specs so we don't have to guess what you have
Well it does say this:"The motherboard supports CPU fan speed control, which requires the use of a CPU fan with fan speed control design."
So Gymenii or anyone else is this a bad thing or a good thing just wanting to know, I do have an OCZ fully modular 750W PSU btw, just to let you know. I want to mainly replace the rear fan, the side fans on the lanboy air, and add top fans, and extra optional side fans, all PWM.
I hear people mentioned ty-140's to put on my hyper evo which has not arrived yet, it has 120mm bracket design so I know it should fit just fine, (heard the heat sink is a ***** to install) , I also intend to set it up in push pull configuration. My problem now is that I do not now what fans to place on the heat sink to replace the stock fan that came from coolmaster in the links I gave you. The af12 shown and mentioned by me in my links seems to be only good as an exhaust! I can put it in the rear fan ^^, so that is not a problem. The main problem is the noise they would make on intake makes me not want to attach them to the heat sink so out of the question they are loud. Next is the gelid they have some type of intelligent pwm design so I like them even if the AC has some type of patented PWM sharing technology. The gelid's I mentioned I will get multiple of them regardless, by what does that do concerning the ty-140's? would it be better to have those gelid's on the CPU fan header/heat sink or those ty-140's. I mean I assumed the ty-140's are better than the gelid, but the intelligent design the gelid's have is why I asked the question. If the ty-140's are better on it i'll stick that on it either way, and try and connect via the akasa spitters you guys recommended.
Basically looking at this:
rear fan AC x1 PWM
Side fan x4 PWM
heat sink fans x2 PWM
top fans PWM x2
That is it basically. I'd need more than one splitter ^_^, and yeah I am going to listen to list my computers specs to you guys.
