Need more CFM..........

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just like it says........I want to get my temps down (can't afford to go water right now )

I have 1 80mm fan in the front as intake, 1 80mm in the side panel as a intake, and then 2 80mm exhaust fans in the rear, near the top.....

The front one is the one that came with case (probably crap), and the other 3 I bought more for looks than effectivness (exhausts are blue LED and the side is red LED)........these 3 only blow about 30 CFM each......


I have found a couple higher CFM 80mm fans, in the 40 or 50 range, but they are basic black. I would prefer some LED fans as I like my computer to look as good as it runs........but I guess I will have to make some choices.

Does anyone know of some nice LED fans that flow about 45CFM? I might cut a hole in the right side for an additional intake and a top hole for another exhaust. Noise isn't a MAJOR issue for me, I worry about performance first, looks second, and noise 3rd.........


Any ideas?

oh and you could even cut drill holes for a larger fan and make the cutouts for some 120mm fans...

Holy ****! LOL


I searched Newegg and it kept saying no results!!!


Now if only it came in red

I think I even have 3 of the 3 pin attachments on the board.....



Adapters would be cool, and I know a bigger fan would be easier, but there's no way I have the room. The side and front would be clearance problems witht he adapter, and the rear there's no way anything more than a 80mm would fit.......when I custom build a case, 120s will be all I use.....
