I currently am using the stock Antec Tri-Cool>Rad>Stock Corsair on intake, with both fans connected to the motherboard. I would like to be able to connect the two new fans to the motherboard as well for cable management reasons. So what's the worry if I do so?
I don't think that FT's are really a high powered fan at 1850rpm and their amperage draw is negligible. I have both of them plugged into my CPU fan using a Y adapter so they are both going the same speed and they both stay above the rated 1850rpm.

Okay guys, I need your advice. Right now I'm idling at 43C right now and loads at 60C; I don't know ambient temps but I do have two fans running right in front of the desk/computer, so there is colder air by the tower.



My case has a 120mm Antec Tricool fan set on High in the bottom drive bay, then I have the Corsair fan > H50 > another Antec Tricool expelling air out the back along with the top 200mm exhaust fan.

My question is this: is it worth it to try and get some nice fans to replace everything, like some Yate Loons or Scythe Gentle Typhoons? Would they bring down temps at all?

I'd say yes it would be worth it. the TriCool Max CFM Rating is 79cfm while the Yate Loon High Flow Max is 88 CFM. Now we both know that real life performance varies. So the TriCools' are probably more around 72cfm and the YLs' are probably more around 83 cfm Then it also depends on your ambient temps. You won't see a major decrease in temps but it will be noticeable if you went with a Scythe or YL. I suggest the latter because you can get them for a song first of all and second because they work well.

Also if you want to lower your temps a bit more put your setup with a shroud or two between the fans and the Rad and put them in your 5.25 bay if you have airflow there. Especially during the summer.

I know for a fact that the room I'm in is very warm and that is a culprit, and while I'm doing what I can to keep the room cold (fans), my computer just doesn't want to cooperate, and I was wondering if it was just the fans.

I mean right now I'm at 47C idle and are two full fans right next to my desk spewing out cold air. I'm not looking for a miracle drop it temps, but hitting 60C+ during load is unacceptable.

I have the same processor and have it OCed to 4ghz my idle is 35C. I have two Scythe GentleTyphoons two 25mm fan shrouds in between both fans and have it in my front drive bays as intake it works very great with the current setup the highest I have seen thus far under load is 55C on a very warm day when I didn't have the AC on. Normally under load it is 49-50C.

Which of these fans would be perform better?

Nexus http://www.svc.com/d12sl-12-bw.html

Arctic http://www.svc.com/ca-f12.html

Or is there any other black/white fans that might preform better?

Interesting, I've thought about using a shroud but I don't know if I'll have enough room considering I'm running mATX at the moment. But it seems like getting some new fans might be a good idea, if not now then at least in the long run.

Wow you're not kidding are you.

Get the Yate Loons and look for a bigger case. That's half your problem right there. Hardly any airflow going through that case.

Okay I would mount a fan and shroud on the outside|Rad shroud fan inside.

Also I should state that depending on your domicile fans can actually increase the temp around your area. Fans usually work best when put on the shady side of a house and aimed to circulate the airflow. Blowing on your computer isn't good because it's flushing warm air into a warmer environment.

I used to live in a house that has trees on every side but the front. My roomates would stupidly open the windows and blow hot air into the house. When they moved my house was NEVER hot because I had curtains up and the windows were shut. I would open the windows in the evenings to let in the cooler air and shut them when it started to get chilly. I went 2 summers in that house without an AC and my system did fine.

I don't mean that they are sitting right in front of the case, I might have chosen my words wrong. I mean that they are doing what they can to get some air circulating in this dungeon I'm in.

Yeah I think I'm going to put in an order for some Yate Loons to put in this case. And to be honest, I love this case and I haven't been able to find a better mATX case out there.

I've looked.

And I'll probably just turn those Antec fans into shrouds. I hope they help.
