Corsair 600t + Noctua Fans

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

As the title suggest it I would like to know if it could be a great move to change my fans on my current pc case : the corsair 600t http://www.corsair.com/en-ca/graphite-series-600t. It has 120mm rear + 200mm top + front.

I just bought a Noctua nh-d15 for my cpu recentIy and i see that I could replace the rear fan with a 120mm noctua fan also. I want the best airflow possible to keep the system at lowest possible temp without beeing noisy. I know I can also replace the top 200mm fan with 2x 120mm fans ; would you guys consider it's a good move?

Thank you!

Noctua has been teasing a 200mm fan at various trade shows for about 3 years now. Has there been any recent news about it?

Holy crap! Here is the monster itself, shown off again last month at Computex.

then i saw this quote....

Both the 200mm and the next-generation 120x25mm A-series fan will have to undergo final stress tests before an ETA can be confirmed, but Noctua aspires to have them available towards the end of the year or early 2017. As soon as the 120mm model is finalised, Noctua will also resume R&D on its ambitious Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) project, which will be based on this model and thus had to be put on hold during the last year while the focus was on overcoming the manufacturing challenges associated with ultra-tight tip clearances.

While there are several 180mm fans available now, there don't seem to be many 200mm fans
Geggeg has tested several 180mm fans on his Thermalbench testing and review site.

Wait, aren't FM181 EOL? I can't find them for sale anywhere.

I think you are correct.
But there are still some out there. And I posted the link for other 180 mm fan results as well. tongue.gif
The AP182 is quite good too.

Yeah sadly the FM181 has been made EOL, but there's still decent stock in NA and some other regions.

I hate to point out the obvious.......but the OP is talking about spending ~$100 in fans (five Noctua 120mm at $20 each). You can upgrade to a better designed and built case with better airflow for less than that.

Nothing wrong with that if they like their case. I have spent over $100 on quite a few occasions on nothing but fans.

I guess we could call it a cost efficiency kind of thing. Some of us don't have the money to not be contentious of how we spend it. Maybe it's being older or having grown up in a world where $100 could make the difference between going hungry or not having a warm house. When that happens spending $100 on fans for a case with poorly designed airflow is something we consider a bad thing to do because it's not rational thought.
