Modding a Big Typhoon

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I want a Big Typhoon because of its performance but i like the Zalman for the blue LED. But is it possible to take the fan off the Bt and put a Fan on there that is better and has blue LED? What kind of fan on there and what should i look for in a new one?

Yes, you can easily put a different fan on the Typhoon. As far as what to look for, what's your interest? Maximum cfm? Noise?

Here you go, put this on it: Turbine
120mm, blue Leds, cool look, moves air!
Might want a fan controller, when you want to quiet it down, it has a "rush of air" sound to it.

im looking for something a little Quite.. not extremely loud. Moves more air than the current fan on there.. no specific amount just more than the stock fan. Ill look into that turbine... i was looking at the Aspire 120mm fan.. for like 7 bucks thats what i have in the back of my case.. dont know how it works yet since my stuff is still in the mail

You probably won't find one that moves more air at the same noise level. Probably just find one with on par air movement but "bling'd" up a bit.

That one is great! Some people say it is loud, but doesn't seem too loud to me.
