In mine I have a 360, 240, and 120 all with ap-15 as intake. Don't even need an exhaust fan in my opinion.

Cougar Vortex or scythe GT's.

Are you sure? 5 intakes (7 actually, push and pull on rad) and only 1 exhaust and I'll be fine?

As far as fans, I'm partial to Corsair SP120s and Gentle Typhoons. Gentle Typhoons have a nicer tone, but undervolted Sp120s aren't very loud at all and still push a good amount of air. The Corsair SP120s definitely win in the looks department, too.

But how I can overvolt them?


Looks like the question is:

Cougar Vortex X Gentle Typhoon X Noctua NF-F12

Who wins in airflow X noise? I added noctua because I saw a review on xbitslabs about them...

Thanks guys!

anyone got three SILENT WINGS 2 fans in the front and 140mm as an exhaust?. thinking of replacing my Corsair AF120 with those. I connected my SP120 rad(H100i) fans to my fan controller (I know it isn't meant to do that), but I wanted to run them at fixed RPM (now they running at 1500rpm). my temps aren't stable like before it goes 25-27-29-33-30-24 every few seconds?.

Check with Microcenter, I dont know if they have them available for online sale, but my local Atlanta store has the real AP-15s in stock. I debated stocking up, but had zero use for more fans redface.gif

Unfortunately I can't go to a store to pick it up, because I'm not from USA. I want to order it online and ship to my friend's house.
