Best slim fan (Max 15mm) - To create airflow

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi

Is looking at a slim fan, that is max 15mm - The size should be around 80-120mm (Not the most important part)

Going to use it to create a little flow around my motherboard, and it MUST be silent ... Is looking at this:

Noctua NF9X14PWM 92 x 14mm PWM Fan

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17473/fan-1140/Noctua_NF9X14PWM_92_x_14mm_PWM_Fan_NF9X14PWM.html?tl=g36c365s1799

Looks pretty nice, but the colors is just doh.gif ... Is there any new and nice slim fans out ?

Regards Fonne

i personaly like this fan, and it is prity silent when under volted, but probably isnt the best air flow... would you mind posting your system specs to we can see exactly what you are planning?

if it will all be WCed, the i have a different recommendation... insted what i would do is aim one of your RADs into the main compartment of your case... this will provide adequate airflow (though it will be warmer air) for your mobo... your other option (if you are using high CFM fans) would be to use negative pressure to pull air in, and just have your intake holes oposit your rad... do you have any drawings of your case plan yet? smile.gif

The motherboard will be seperated from the RAD, so cant just use the fans on my rad to create flow, would have been great if I could smile.gif

Got drawings, but not finish so dont want to post them smile.gif - But thanks for your help thumb.gif
