Also - will the stock antec fan along with the corsair fan be sufficient? i was thinking about using 2 akasa apace fans with a shroud

As somebody posted on my other post: fan/radiator/shroud/fan

what do you suggest?

If you don't have room for two then put one on the pull fan.

Edit: and forget the the airbox since it's too deep, just use an old fan.

Do you have enough room to keep both shrouds in the case but just have the fan out side? You can get some sort of slick grill to put on it to keep it looking clean. I dont think a 120mm fan is going to make it looks not clean, I think it would add some flair.

right now I have it setup as Fan<Rad<Fan inside the case. I have about an inch of space between the fan and the pump.

So the only choice I would have is:

with 1 shroud

Fan|Case|Rad<Shroud<Fan or Fan|Case|Shroud<Rad<Fan (forgot which way was best)

with 2 shrouds

Fan<Shroud|Case|Rad<Shroud<Fan

It may well overlap but not by much, and it wont matter too much. If there is space you can add a shroud, and you can easily replace both the fans with your Akasa's.

These Yate Loons are 28db, the Akasa Apache Blacks are 16db, is the difference really that noticeable noise wise?

Yate loons
Akasa AK-FN058 Apache Black

Edit: After further research anything under 30 db is quiet enough to be not heard much.

Yate loons

dam those Akasa look nice! i should have gotten those...

any idea how those rate against the GT's?
post #6139 of 28252
Sharkoon Silent Eagle 2000's These seem even better 76 CFM & 36 Decibels, wonder if that extra 8db is much different from the yates?

Edit: because they're 2000 rpm and 36 db, most reviewers are saying they are NOT silent at full speed, but fan controlled work great.

Best to get the Yate loons?

I have been pondering the use of a fan on the outside of the case, however what mesh / bracket do you guys use over it? as an open blade is quite dangerous
