60mm fan for 780i NB

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just did the mod to put a 60mm fan on my 780I NB heatsink. Full details ca be found here: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.asp?m=213483&mpage=1&key=
The one I got (an Antec off of amazon.com) works much better, but is still somewhat loud. My computer is almost inaudible when this fan is turned off. I had to mod this one from a molex connector to a 3 pin so I could control it from the BIOS, but even at 1% it is blowing hard and loud. Can anyone recommend a 60mm fan that is quiet and has somewhat good CFM (enough to keep the NB cool)? Thanks, ChIck3n

Nope, the only computer I have sitting around waiting for disassembly is so old the CPU does not even have a fan on it (just one case fan)! If I am going to get another one, I will need to buy it new.

Thanks for the help! I was thinking an 80mm fan would be better, but had no way of attaching it well. I will give the spot cool a try!
