Airflow and 120mm fan advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I am looking for a new pair or fan to mount on my case, an antec 1100. Some months ago i bought a Corsair SP120 Performance Edition, but with my case it caused a terrible noise with the grid of the case (if the grid was next to the intake part of the fan). For this reason i'm pretty cautious buying a new fan, since i have no idea if it's a fan or a case problem. Anyway, after that i bought a gentletyphoon (1450RPM) fan ant i had no problem with that, like i don't have problem if i use the Noctua NF-P12 fan that came with NH-D14 or the Antec 120mm fan that came with the case (even though it doesn't move much air). With that said, which fan would you recommand me to buy?
Also, i'd like to have an advice about the best airflow i could get. Currently my fans are placed like this: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/18993865/Screenshot/er_photo_160999_52.jpg (just to let you understand). The only fans that aren't marked are the 2 fans installed on the NH-D14. The red lines are, instead, my 2 gpu (7950) which i use to play games and to mine altcoin (so i produce a big amount of heat, since my gpus run at around 65°C while mining). Also, notice that in the hdd cage i have 2 3.5" hard disks, all in the upper part of the cage (but i'm going to put one at the top and one at the bottom if you tell me to put another intake fan in front of the case). My case also allows me to place 2 fans on the side panel.
With all this said, how would you recommend me to place my fans (even the ones i'm going to buy) to get the best possible airflow and to keep my computer and my gpus temps down?
Thanks a lot to everyone! smile.gif
