Hi, does anyone have an opinion on a good PWM fan to replace the standard one?

I have searched this thread and the only recommendations seem to be for 3 pin fans. I don't want a fan that runs at full speed the whole time, because i want to keep it as quiet as possible.

I really like the Scythe Gentle Typhoon but it doesn't seem to be available in PWM.

Your motherboard will control 3-pin fans connected to the PWM_FAN header in a similar way as it would to a PWM fan. And if it doesent you can use speedfan to control fanspeed relative to temperature that way.

Hello all!
I've been assembling a box for a while and have found this thread incredibly useful for info on my particular (still a paycheck from finished) setup - thanks so much for sharing! I'll definately be posting pics and benchmarks once finished.

I'm building in an Antec nine hundred two (with that 20cm top fan).
My concerns are thus: running the H50 as an intake will be best and preferably with push/pull fans - will the 'big boy' suffice as my only exhaust with 3 (two front drive bays and one side) intakes plus the doubled-up intake right below it?

the only other option i can see is to hack up a tunnel in the top 3 drive bays - but that's going to get hairy pretty quick as my mobo (rampage II extreme) is slightly over ATX width, and forces all of the fans and radiator to be inside that drive space and not beyond.

I noticed some other posters are using this case with intake through that rear fan and some more who have set up intakes in their drive bays in other cases. How's it going with those who used the rear as an intake, and has anyone pulled this mod off in the 902?

Any other suggestions?

sorry for the long post. it's late and I'm feelin' pedantic.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I have put one of my case fans into the PWM header and it just runs at 100%

Also tried turning off Q fan in bios, then control the fan speed with speedfan, but doesn't work! (i have used speedfan for my case fans for years and works perfectly with them)

This is why I need a pwm fan, as there seems to be no other way with my mobo.

Are you not running a rear exhaust also? with the top fan and a good rear fan I would think you should be fine... Measure what your input CFM is and what your output CFM is and try to make them equal if not having more on the output.

Plug the pump into the PWM cpu fan header. Plug the rad fans with a y splitter into a chassis fan header and control with speedfan.

Yes! I have done this before with two 3 pin fans. Think i had to cut the yellow wire going to one of the fans so the mobo would read the fan speed from just one of the fans. Both fans will spin at the correct/same speed.

Hi, thanks for the reply.

I have 4 chassis/system fan headers, which are all linked!
So if i connect in this way, when the H50 fans speed increases, so will all my case fans! Which makes a fair bit of noise which i am trying to avoid.

So are there any PWM fans that are better than the one that comes with the H50? Or are there only 3 pin fans that would work better?

Just make sure that you dont pull to much power through the board pins... i think most boards max out at 2 Amps

My ThermalTake Element S has a similar fan configuration. I actually had better temps exhausting than intaking. I suggest trying both ways. People tend to be getting very random results depending on the setup.
