good 5.25" bay fans?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
anybody know of a good 5.25" bay fan? (one that takes up like 2 or 3 bays)

i'd like it to be as quiet as possible but still perform. blue LEDs maybe? not required but that would be nice to have

Well there are only 2 I know of, but I highly suggest just getting a fan and using foam to keep it in place for the best performance. Here's a crude, horrible pic of mine:

Yeah I started with zip-ties too, but the foam helps so that the fan only sucks air from the front, and doesn't recycle air from within the case.

Yep, with foam or something similar to cover the sides so dust doesnt come in.

Like so:



I must have posted this pic now what, like 4 times?

That's an S-Flex F series by the way. Works great!

The Scythe Kama bay is a 3 5.25" bay 120mm fan

I like the idea, but i don't know which fan choose a ultra kaze 2000 or a S-Flex 1600rpm. On an Apollo case, i need the extra CFM of the Kaze?
