Need fans suggestions for EX360 Rad and fan controller.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to get a better fan for my EX360 Rad. Prefer a fan that low in noise but high performance. Also need a fan controller for those fans (Prefer something more modern/high-tech tongue.gif) since I ran out of fan plug on my motherboard -__-

Only want 3 fans for now.

No budget but prefer to keep it as low as possible.

Thanks!

Many people would recommend 1850RPM Gentle Typhoon fans for a great balance of noise and performance. The Noctua NFF12 fans are also very good but many hate the color.

As far as fan controller, I'm in the same boat, I don't really know what to look for.

I went with the Gentle Typhoons AP-15 and the Lamptron Touchless; love it so far. The GT's are so dang quiet I can't believe it. When you turn the PC power off the fans stay spinning for a good 30 seconds. It reminds me of a good ball-bearing turbo biggrin.gif

I love my Scythe Q-12 fan controller. It has 12 channels at 12W / 1A / 12V each. With that controller, you can set the fans to anywhere from 0-100%.

I was looking at that one, do all the channels work properly on yours?

TT's are overrated, I drive slow on way home and oil temp is <60*. People don't usually shut off their car after making a few pulls. What do I know though 530whp stock block is no joke. To the point I think you were trying to make, regardless the car is still going to shut off turbo timer or not and if you have a BB turbo it will continue to spin... like the AP-15's smile.gif

Sorry for the off-topic OP! When I chose my fan controller I asked myself if I wanted one with knobs or not. I opted for a flush look, however the Lamptron Touchless is more difficult to adjust then a controller with knobs so it's a trade-off. Good luck!

Yeah I prefer a flush look since everything in my bay are flushed.

I have RS360. Push/Pull will make a difference. I use AP-15s. With fans personally i would say go for the best you can buy. Its because you will keep them for many builds. For fan controller i would say Scythe Kaze Q12. You will never need to upgrade if you add more fans.
