Anything better than BitFenix Spectre Pro 200mm?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking for a new 200mm Fan for the front intake of my Corsair 600T. The stock one does not push very much air at all and it intermittently makes a clicking noise. Corsair sent me a replacement fan months ago and when i went to put it in the fan looked exactly the same until i went to mount it. The mounting holes were only on the side for it to be used as an exhaust. I know i will have to remove the drive cages for anything but the stock fan to fit because it's much thinner than a standard 200mm fan but i was going to do that anyway.

Looking for suggestions of fans i may have overlooked during my research.

Specs im looking for:
Black or sleeved cables
80+ CFM
Quiet
3 Pin


Currently looking at the Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm fans. I am not a big fan of the ridiculous amount of mounting holes on them though and they are all sold out on newegg.

The Coolermaster megaflow 200mm are good, they push slightly more air than the Spectre Pro. Bear in mind the CM is 5mm thicker than the Spectre Pro and you would need to move your hard drive cages. The Spectre Pro will fit with the hard drive cages in their original position.

I know everyone recommends the Megaflows but for me they were very weak (i got a HAF 922, it came with 2 Megaflows, front and top) the front (intake, red led) one barely moved any air pass the hard drive cages, for the top (exhaust) one i could barely feel any air coming out of my case. I did buy a Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm (blue, front, intake) and i can feel a bit more air than the Megaflow, is not a massive amount more air, but something is something thumb.gif, i would have order 2 of them but this things are in always low stock or out of stock in most shops.

I know what you mean, there was a thread on here talking about being unimpressed with all 200mm fans, but it's hard to judge them by feeling the air coming from them as they are pushing air over a large area.

I own both a Megaflow and a Spectre Pro, I didn't notice any difference in temps between them so I have the Spectre Pro fitted due to aesthetics.
