Antec 900, replacement higher CFM fans and NH-D14 setup?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an antec 900. I am looking to replace the case fans with something higher CFM. Any recommendations for the 2 front intake fans, I can only do 120mmx25mm for the front and 120mmx38mm for the rear exhaust. Noise isn't too much of an issue, I just want something with a higher CFM but not too much of a higher db, I will be connecting it to a controller. Also I am getting a NH-D14, which way would be best? pushing or pulling to rear or top exhaust?

Correct me if I am wrong; but isn't the stock Antec tri-cool 79cfm @ 30dBA? The D12SM-12 looks like it only does 70CFM @ 33dBA

Yes, I just mentioned Yate Loon because of the price and it's very close to the tri-cool...

If you're looking for something much stronger than the tri-cool but same dBa
