Looking for information on CASE fans please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I was browsing the forums for case fan information and came across the POLL forum for fans. I am looking to buy a few 120mm Fans, but unsure what to be looking for... reason why is cause i have an H60 Corsair cooling unit, that i bought from a friend and it kinda over heated i guess and died? not sure how, but i got it replaced by the company and now I was thinking for its radiator part, have 2 fans, one pull and one pushing... is this a good idea? and if so what fans would you suggest for this type of situation?


I looked on newegg and found some Corsair fans that I think might be good but would like a second opinion please.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181023 performance edition?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181021 quite edition?

what are your thoughts?

if you want performance = Swiftech h220 which performs much better than h100i and similar to h110

now if you want to use less money= NH D14/Silverstone Heligon HE01

any of these will be great , swiftech,noctua,silverstone are good in cooling

Assuming you already have the unit, the absolute best fans for the money (actually some of the best fans forrradiators period) are the Koolance 2600rpm 120x38mm and 120x25mm fans, at just $9-10 each. Put a pair of them in push-pull on your H80 and you will have the best performance you can get unless you go for the top-end Delta/San Ace 120x38mm super fans.
