Case fan suggestions for Lanboy air and sg05

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I want to purchase case fans for these two cases and I have very little knowledge about case/radiator fans. Its currently 30c outside and guessing inside too.

1- the sg05 is with a antec 620 and the case fan is pushing air from the outside on the radiator with the antec620 stock fan removed.
- msi 560 ti frozr II
- cpu undervolted
- cpu idle @ 34 and gaming @ 47. gpu @ 40 and gaming @ 70

2- the lanboy air is running with the stock fans and a hyper 212 plus.
-msi 6950 frozr II
- cpu idle @ 37 and gaming @ 57. gpu @ 44 and gaming @ 70

In both cases, Im interested in knowing if I can increase cooling/decrease dust built-up with additional fans without sacrificing noise when idle (I dont care if its loud at load).

Last time I bought 2 fans for another computer based on dba and they were super loud compared to the 912 stock fans. Im not sure if I would want to invest in a fan controller but I am here to learn.

Let me know if I need to provide more information.

IMHO, case fans are about noise and nothing else. I have all stock case fans that came with my Phantom 630, they are just running off the built in fan controller. There are better ways to lower temps without replacing case fans. Changing fans on rads and air coolers is a better choice. Ambient temps are the biggest factor, doesn't do any good to move more air in and out if the air is warm.

If case does not have good airflow (not airblow) than components needing cooling don't get clean cool air. Getting cool air to components and removing the hot air from coolers without letting it mix with the cool air is what it's all about.

Don't know much about the SG05, but the lanboy doesn't suffer from bad airflow.
