I'm looking to deck out my case (with fans)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi ladies and gents I am looking to deck out the case (with fans) I am going to get with my new build, here is the case:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=21449

now the case comes with 3 140 mm fans in the front and one at the rear (pre installed), I am willing to deck the case out completely and use up all the fan spots, I think the case has support for 2 more 140 mm fans and 2 more 120 mm fans, and correct me if I am wrong if this case supports more than 2 140 mm fans and 2 120 mm fans, since I am willing to buy all the fans that the case supports.

I was wondering which fans should I get?

120 mm, 2 of these?: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_510&products_id=6223

140 mm, 2 of these?: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_598&products_id=12960

Since this is a high end gaming PC I don't want the fans looking horrible inside the case either, so I wasn't sure about ^^ those 120 mm fans and 140 mm fans, if those fans aren't worth it or look horrible what other ones should I get? and will this PC be loud as heck with all the fan expansion slots in use?

Noctua fans are good.

These will also be good for the front of your case, they also move a lot more air.

the front of the case comes pre-installed with 3 140 mm fans already, so I can leave that I need 2x 120 mm fans and 2x 140 mm fans (2 120 mm fans for the top and 2 140 mm fans for the side, extra fans!!)

how loud will it be with the additional fans?

do I just get the ones you recommended? both for 120 mm and 140 mm

Here is what I was thinking: 1 of these since its a twin pack:

120 mm: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20513

and 2 of these:

140 mm: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=12960

what do you think?

adding more fans for the sake of adding more fans is not the best use of your upgrading $. you'd be better off using that $ and buying a fan controller or a dremel or just better air filters then the stock mesh. that would actually help you with your build. you should only add more fans if you actually need the additional airflow. not because you want to hear the louder humming sound from more fans...

Noctua fans are being dethroned.

They're supposed to be as silent while pushing more air. They perform the same as some Noctua's at almost half the price minus the ugly color.

dremel. standard tool for case modders biggrin.gif



stock mesh filter is the filter that came with the case. looks something like this



a better air filter would be something that improves airflow while still provide adequate protection and it looks something like this

200x200px-ZC-1854e95e_yhst-39083765508394_2195_149121570.jpeg

the wave mesh has greater total surface area then a flat stock filter, therefor reduce airflow resistance while providing good protection. it's the main reason why air filter in your car and air conditioner use the accordion style filter, it's just a wave mesh but at a much higher density offering much greater surface area.

Dremels are dangerous. You buy a case, next thing you know, you're cutting it all up haha!
