Heatsink Fan

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What is the best 80mm fan for my all copper heatsink? I want the most cfm with the lowest dbs. I currently have a SmartFan 2 but it is very loud at 72 cfm. Also an adjustment tuner would be nice.

Is this any good? http://store.yahoo.com/maxcooler/thera2uffans.html

Probably a Vantec Tornado, but again it's very loud as are any high cfm fans.
Maybe pair this with a Vantec Nexus controller to turn it down to an acceptable level.

Yes as Ste said Tornado's are the best for CFM, But there kinda load.
Heres a link about these bad boys. I just happen to have 5 of these for sale.


But the one you linked is just as load as the Tornado.
I will look around today while I'm at work.

i think you should try a silverstone fm82 out. it has 92mm blades in 80mm case. i got one for my mascool all copper HS and it dropped my cpu temps by about 8c when its used at full speed (rated for 72cfm & 40dba) and it comes with a fan speed controler, although it is a bit pricey.
