replacing fans with corsair SP120 quiet editions - good idea?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
so im considering getting a twin pack of the SP120 quiet edition because im getting paid tomorrow and want to buy stuff biggrin.gif

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181025

would it still work to use one of these on my 212 EVO and the other as an exhaust fan? or would it be smarter to buy of of each corsair fan SP120 Quiet for 212 EVO and a AF120 Quiet for exhaust?

i also planned later on to probably get the AF140 for the front intake of my case as well.


just not sure if i would benefit from getting what described above

2X SP120 for heatsink and rear exhaust OR SP120 for heatsink and AF120 for exhaust

thanks for any input thumb.gif

thanks for input.

i think ill just get quiet edition of course and get an AF120 and a SP120. seems to make most sense since they say one is intended as case fan and the other is best as heatsink/radiator fan

i dont really need push/pull on my 212 since i dont need the extra few degrees. i just want nice performance and quality and quiet biggrin.gif

ill snag a AF140 for my front intake down the road later on

I wish they would have made a 200mm fan so i could have changed the front fan on my 650d so it would match with the rest of them. Can't wait to get them in so I can replace the stock fans they are kind of loud to me.

if you go push/pull you either:

1.- remove the rear fan entirely..

2.- put 1 crazy high CFM fan as exhaust.. otherwise the performance its not going to be the best..
