OK, Now on to fan selection...

What fans would you guys recommend for me. I want to set up a push-pull system with my 240 GTX Rad.

What fan would provide me the best flow rate for that Rad?

Yate Loon D12SM's seem to be very popular around here - good airflow to noise ratio and they are also pretty cheap which is good considering you will need a few for your rad

That's funny. I was just looking at them. The medium speed only push around 70 cfm, is that enuf?
or should I get the high speed at 88 cfm?

Should be fine, especially if you run push-pull. If you really want the fans to move more air you could always get the Yate Loon D12SH's as they move 88CFM but are quite a bit louder. It really depends on how loud fans you can tolerate.

I wouldn't use any smaller then these on any rad..86cfm Pana..These are what I use.115cfm Pana..

I like 120x38mm fans on my rad, the higher pressure they have will scavenge air through a rad better, you can alway put them on a controller and still have better pressure even running at a lower cfm...

But with any 47+ cfm fans they do well,a push-pull as mentioned would do better.....360 GTX Beats PA.3 w/47cfm Fans


I'd use a shroud with it, its worth several extra C at least...

Shrouds are a must to increase pressure and 38mm thick fans are just as highly recommended for the best cooling.

They have a great CFM/DBA ratio...I owned the D12SH's which had a little more airflow and were a little noisier...

However, on a GTX rad you're really going to want something 38mm as they are thick rads.

As long as you are using a push/pull setup you can probably drop down to around 40CFM and not lose that much performance.

But I'd still recommend getting some high speed Yates and hooking them up to a fan controller. And just keep turning down the speed till the rate of temperature increase starts to increase - that's when you know you've hit the optimal speed.

Somone told me you can have "dead spots" by using fan bodies as shrouds. Anyone have any thoughts?
