[Guide] Replacing the Fan in a Tuniq Tower (56K Warning). - Page 2

post #11 of 18
What advantage does switching out the fan to a Silverstone have over the "stock" Tuniq one? I really see no point to it, but great guide!

IMO the stock fan is an alright fan, but you can get a better one to push more air at lower decibel rating.....and he is trying to show you how to do that.

Are there any requirements for the fan (other than the 25mm width)? For example, would this S-Flex or this cheap Apevia or the Silverstone FM121 be bad? (The listed specs seem better than FN121...?)

Thanks!

I only received mounting instructions aswell.

Good job, and very nice pictures! Its refreshing to see quality pictures on here!

The only requirements are size, really. You can put anything in there as long as it has 4 (could even get away with 2) screw holes, and is 120x120x25mm. The only question is whether the fan you're using is better than the Tuniq fan, which is quite good in the first place. The FM121 would probably be the best one of that bunch you listed.

Just did this with an FM121 - no problems at all. Thanks!

Thanks for the guide, My TT120 is on its way to me and I intend to replace its stock fan with FM121.
BUT, Is it worth? I heard the the stock fan has good airflow and also quiet. I will not run FM121 >2000rpm because it's so noise.
AySz88, do you notice the benefit of your replacement. Let compare the 2 fans at same speed (2000, 1800, 1600) What's different in Temp and Noise.
Not sure that I'm hijack this treat or not, Fix me Skyx if I am.

I got this Silverstone fan FM121 I compared it to the TT120 stock fan and did not see any big difference in term of noice and air flow. I compared just the fans. the silverstone can push more air but add more noice. at the same noice level, they both push the same amount of air, I think. Moreover, the silverstone is heavier and adds more weight to the already-heavy TT120. Plus the stock fan got 3-pin plug which can be connected directly to the MB. the Silversone got 4-bin module plug. I think I will use the stock for TT120.
