Have a look at those, although I do find manufacturers quoted specs usually to be inaccurate.

Best way I know of to have a quiet system is to have the speed of case fans controlled the same as CPU and GPU. Idle at 6-800rpm when system is idle or low load. Speed up to supply air as needed.. Rarely done until a couple years ago but is becoming more common all the time. First link in my sig explains how I do it.

We will be able to use 3-pin voltage controlled fans once Phanteks releases their PWM controlled 3pin fan hub as an accessory. Now it is only supplied with Enthoo Primo case.

What is your system? Case, CPU cooler, GPU, fan configuration, etc.

You know I have recreated that PWM controller that phantek created. I need to find the book that book I had the diagram of.

Please do. I'm very interested in getting the schematic for it.

  • No graphics card?
  • Nothing the matter with 400R a few good fans won't fix. With a optical drive in top bay and other 3 optical bays with a 3rd front intake you could easily have 200+cfm airflow. Lower side intake position could be helpful cooling GPU.
  • I always use cooler or radiator fans. Case intakes have as much and sometimes more resistance to airflow than coolers and radiators do.
  • Top air coolers cool as well as H110, are cheaper, have less issues, are usually quieter, and if H110 pump fails you have no cooling. If an air cooler fan fails you can use any fan and rubber band it on to keep going. wink.gif
