Antec: making it cheap and COOL!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I JUST installed my Antec fan I bought from Circuit City. It was $7.99 and it is keeping my usually frying CPU so cool that I can feel the cold air on my knee! I'm definitely going to get a second one (but this one is going to be the Blue LCD fan, cause they look so pimp) and I recommend it to anyone who is running a low-fi system and needs some cheap AC. Thanks again, Antec!



Decided to put this in the Hardware Reviews.

Did you just do a review/recommendation of a case fan?

Well, good thing it made such a huge improvement for you, get a couple more fans, and then you'll have a nice and cool case

I guess you could call it a hardware review, yeah.

My Antec PSU is pretty solid and handles this X1800XT real well.
Very nice!

Also, use their thermal paste, its the same as AS5 , but in stores, its called formula 5.

my transformers case fans are freaking insane dude, these fans are COOL like OMG, if you were sweating these fans would cool you off in like 5 mins.
