Thread Starter 
Well first off, i live in Toronto where it gets quite hot...and i dont think my fans are doing too well :/ I got a Chengming case and the fans that came with it. I think i need new ones. Anyone have good recommendations for fans taht are well..silent and keeps stuff cool? I got a Zalmans for my CPU and its not doing too well since the heat is insane My GPU is hitting the 60 degree mark where as it used to be 48 :/

68 load is actually good for a gpu. Keep it under 70-80 under max load. Keep your processor under 50 max load. Fans can only do so much, especially if you want to keep your rig quiet.

I'd recommend some antec tri cools because in the winter when it gets cold you can just hit a little switch on em to make run at a lower speed because you no longer need their full power, and it'll be quieter.

If you want something a bit better I'd recommend some high speed panaflo fans with a nice vantec or sunbeam rheobus fan controller.

Yeah its good but mine never goes over 58c load. Get a zalman vf700 or if you can spring the extra cash get a vf 900.

What size you need....?

A VF700/VF900/HR-03 would fix your GPU temp issues better than any number of fans, though...

e\\ the Zalman VF900 doesnt say it supports the 7600 series and those Antecs are 12cmx12xm @_@ dont think they will fit as mine are 8cmx8cm

The VF700 and VF900s are heatsinks....you take off the old one (fan + the copper/aluminum block) and put that on it.

I got a VF700 and it keeps me at 42C idle and 62C load (I have 37C ambients, so that's damn good), so I know that works with the 7600 series. I'm pretty sure the VF900 works as well.
