Or 4 120's. I am thinking of putting 4 of the CM 120's on the side inplace of the 200, that way i can get some more air on my 5870's

Call be crazy here, but a CM megaflow is 110cfm (cubic feet per min) where as 120mm Tricools are 78cfm each. A 200mm may have more cfm then a single 120, but most of the time you can fit 2 120s in its place.

Knowing this, its not fair to compare any one 200mm against any one 120mm. Compare it against 2.

It's one thing about cfm output and another about static pressure which is not discussed or considered enough with case fans.

its a balance of both, you want to move enough air but you want it also to be able to hold pressure so it can actually blow onto the parts. Or am i crazy drunken.gif

You really want a response to that? tongue.gif biggrin.gif

 

Anyway with the "hard drive walls" there should be a fan setup in which there's a high static pressure fan(s) from the front to better penetrate them and actually get meaningful air flow/current into the case and especially the GPU(s).  That's one reason I don't "love" the hard drive setup in most cases these days.

 

I think I'll have a drink or two or three or so now too. smil3dbd4e4c2e742.giftongue.gif

Which is why I am not a fan of the 200's by CM they are quiet yes. but I can feel little to no airflow past my hard drives especially since i have all 5 bays full. That is also why i put the 140 that comes with the case in front 5.25 bays and I installed another 120 in the plastic casing around the gpu's but I just cannot get enough air flow to keep it cool.

Its close enough to thirsty Thursday thumb.gif

yup, i agree...the stock 200/230 cooler master fans feel pretty weak...if haf X came with the option to mount 4 120mm on the side....like the haf 932...then I would go 4 120mm over the stock 200mm...anyday of the week

or maybe another manufacture can put out a higher spinning & more air flow 200mm fan? all i know are cooler master and xigmatek make 200mm...and both are not what i'm looking for

That IS the reason why I replaced the stock CM 200mm fans that came with the HAF X. I ended up getting the NZXT 200mm FN fan that has 166cfm but it is attached to my fan controller.

The static pressure from a 200 is more than enough to cover the HDDs. But if you NEED to feel the airflow at the other side of the drives just get a BitFenix 230. 150cfm, give or take 10% and will blow away most 120s'. Stock 200 keeps my RAID setup a reasonable 35c or better. Of course I only have 2 drives in my system at the moment.

Oh and btw? It is fair to compare a 200 to a 120. On decibels alone it's a fair comparison. To beat the 200 you have to add MOAR 120s'. Moar 120s' will beat a 200. But they'll also drive you nuts even when you're undervolting them. Unless you're deaf anyway. Hell, go ahead and add four 120s' and get a head start on the deafness if that's your thing. You won't have to listen to tha wife naggin you about forgetting a "honey do" or two or more. Just turn off your hearing aids and tell her the batteries are dead. laugher.gif lol

200s' are not the greatest fans evar but they push more air and when you are in an environment where quietness is a plus(cramped living quarters, Apartment complex etc) your neighbors will than you, your ears will than you because you don't have to don headphones to play games or watch online broadcasts and your wallet will thank you. At least until you find something else to spend your savings on. thumb.gif

Thats another reason why I removed the upper 4 hard drive bay's in my case to allow as much airflow as possible.

The 120's from CM are very quite even at 100% which is nice, and with 4 of them on the side of the case i should only need to run each about about 50% and my fan controller can maintain all 4 on one channel.
