Which Fan for Scythe Ninja Plus Rev.B

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I bought a Silenx Ixtrema Pro (11dBA and 46cfm) and had that on since I built my rig.

Would the 14dBA 72cfm version improve temps significantly? How about the stock fan that Scythe supplies? Is there any better 120mm fans out there?

Also should I aim the fan upwards toward the top of the case instead of the back? I have P180 case. So the PSU is on the bottom of the case and there is a top exhast fan where the PSU should be normally.

Leave the fan pointed twords teh back. With it set up like that it gets some air onto some parts that need it back there. Also, if you want cooler temps, then yea. Get a higher CFM fan (75-100+) and you'll see a good 2-3 C drop.

Other choice is to do some lapping. if you haven't done that to your Ninja yet, that could get you as much as 5-7 C off temps.
