Case cooling help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
im trying to get together some fans and some good cooling for my new case setup. My case has the option for 80-120mm fan in the back, 4 80mm fans in front, 1 80mm fan int he side panel and thats all. I was planning on cooling the case with a large 120MM fan exaust in the back. a Zalmans 9500 for the CPU. my new PSU (antec Smartpower2.0 500W) has one intake and one out.. one of the fans turns on under heavy load. and i was going to put a intake fan in the panel. What else do you recomend. maybe 2 80 mm fans in the front to guide the air out the back and keep the HD cool at the same time?

I was also wondering what are some good 120 and 80Mm fans that push alot of air, look cool (prefferably blue LED) and keep semi quite at the same time. i was looking at Antec fans.. they seem loud... and they were 15bucks. I want to buy a few so i need a good price and good quality.

With all these fans and stuff, I would say go water cooling. I have the perfect beginers kit to start you off too! Here it is. The GigaByte 3D Galaxy Liquid Cooling System. My friend has it and he ABSOLUTLY LOVES IT . Just an option man, but w/c is the way to go!

Just make sure you set up the fans so that front and side are intake and top and rear are exhausts you should be fine.

Hi Lilwheezy,

Here's some links to blue lit fans. All of the web sites are easy and the folks running the stores are good... There's also newegg, zipzoomfly and other major venders.

http://www.directron.com/casefans.html
http://www.1coolpc.com/

That should get you started. Look for deals and sales and be careful of the shipping, depending on where you live.

I hope this helped, :-)
