Best 120mm case fan for AIR 540 case

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What would be the best 3 front 120mm intakes for my case?

My gpu temps in sli with the 2 stock 140mms are high so would 3 new 120mm improve temps?

I swear by the Arctic Cooling F12 @ 74cfm. I had 3 in the front of my case and all I heard was air whooshing through the front filters.

Then I replaced them with Aerocool Sharks @ 84cfm because I want backlighting of the filters so I can see when they get dirty.

The F12s are quieter and move more air, so will be going back in when I get aroundtoit.

If you get PWM fans you can use a PWM splitter to control their speed with same PWM signal your CPU cooler fans use. Makes for a nice quiet case.. silent when not working hard and still not too loud when at 100% load. wink.gif Everything I build has case fan speed controlled by CPU PWM signal.. sometimes CPU & GPU PWM signals each controlling the fans that supply them air. ; )
