Replacing Phantom 820 stock fans

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Recently bought a phantom 820 and I'm looking to replace the stock case fans.

For the top, I'll be wanting to swap out the 200mm fan. I've been looking at using the Noctua NF-A14 FLX but perhaps it may be better to use 2x200mm fans instead? I'm mainly looking for silence and performance.

For the rear, again a Noctua NF-A14.

Any suggestions on how I should go about replacing the stock fans? Perhaps waiting for Noctua's 200mm fans?

well just looking at the thing you;ve got 1 (or 2) 200, one back 120, one bottom 120, and 2 top 120 or 140s. (hard to tell from the pics). You really WANT more fan? I can't see how you could possibly NEED more.

I'm not wanting more fans. I'm wanting to replace the stock fans with higher quality fans.

Top: 2x 200mm or 2x140mm or 3x120mm
Rear: 1x140mm or 1x120mm.
Front 1x200mm
Bottom: 2x 140mm or 1x120mm (using bottom for radiator)
