Help me with a fan! **UPDATED**

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well it seems as though i need to replace my intake fan on my case.

The Current Fan:
http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Store/Product.aspx?C=1020&SC=1078&ID=1864

The fan itself is starting to make a bunch of grinding noises, so it's time to go. I could just replace it with the one i linked, but imo these fans are just crap.


So i am turning to you guys for your help or suggestions or any type of info you would like to give me.



Lets hear it!
