Question about disabling front fan

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So here's the deal.
I have an Corsair Obsidian 650D case. I've replaced the fans on my h100i and the back fan with some quieter fans.. but I can't really find a proper replacement or way to replace the fan in the front of the case.
I was wondering if I could disable it without causing harm to my rig, if I could still keep it cool enough?
My rig is:
i7 3930k - cooled my h100i with 2x corsair 120sp
GTX 780 - stockcooler
ASUS Sabertooth x79
Corsair HX750 80+gold
Samsung 840 SSD 256gb
Barracuda harddrive 1tb
Corsair 120AF to blow air out of the case.

Thanks! smile.gif

Have you looked at a 200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro? This might be worth a look - I've heard good things about these fans and it's supposed to fit in a 650D. smile.gif

Edit: Have read at this link - someone got it to fit in their 650D with no modding.

Thanks, just wondering how quiet it actually is at this point.
Hmm..

I would think the Coolermaster Megaflow is the best 200mm fan... but they're all pretty much garbage sleeve/rifle bearings

The other option is the one from NZXT that also has a light up LED version
