Basic fan questions - Putting fans on heat sink etc - Page 2

Are you suggesting to put one of the fans to exhaust while the other one pulls air in tongue.gif

I was thinking about doing that.. But should I maybe make some kind of dust filter for it?

Wasn't suggesting anything, only making an observation. biggrin.gif
But if you do use it as an intake be careful It is not drawing heated air from exhaust and blowing that in. wink.gif
The key to good case airflow is testing. thumb.gif

i can be wrong, but that sounds insanely expensive for a GT fan. can someone who knows more about GT chime in on this? i thought they were in the $20 to $25 range?

Nah, AP-14 and AP-15 should be like sub-$20. I don't think they're really worth over $20, not for the accessories pack and acoustics (usually good but sometimes weird) / lack of PWM.

$20 from one of the usual suspects:

$16 from an eBay seller:

In other countries, I don't know about availability. It's not even all that easy to find in the states these days, but they're not exactly all bought up yet.

To be honest, $40 for a fan like that makes me think the figure is currency converted, to be honest... which country, to be clear?

AP-15 ~ $16 , it's the shipping that kills it

I'm USA based. I was talking about the 1850 Rpm I think that's the AP-15 model. And anywhere I see the AP-14 you are right the shipping gets really expansive.
