I believe I made a premature purchase in regards to the new fans I purchased for my system which is making me wonder whether I should facepalm or not.
The fans in question are the Enermax TB Silence UCTB12 which I scooped up on Newegg for $4.99/each so I got five since all but one of my old Scythe Kamikaze are working and figured it's time to rework the cooling since I am getting a new video card and some higher-density RAM.
The problem only became apparent after my purchase went through the initial phase where I had the chance to cancel my order. I decided to look in to the specs and compare it with other products and soon felt the sting of looking before you leap and question whether or not they will actually be decent at cooling anything more than an HTPC, even with overvolting.
So, I ask you, will these fans alone be enough to prevent a meltdown with my overclocked B50 and the 7850/RAM I'll be picking up next week, would I be able to soften this self-inflected blow by throwing two/three higher airflow fans in to the mix (UCTB12s on push/pull, the rest on intake and back), or scrap them all and buy five better fans?
I should also mention that I have one of those ultra-slim Scythe bay fan in the front which adds a little more airflow which could offset the Enermax units a little, maybe?
