4 Case Fans, Suggestions?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
2 are going to be used on the CPU Heatsink(Dark Knight), and 2 are going to be used on the case. 1 for a intake and one for an outtake.

As of right now I only have 2 fans on the heatsink, but want to add 2 more to the collection as the 2 deltas are basically shot, the one delta on the heatsink that is pulling has seized up and just a few minutes ago the delta pushing on the heatsink is making weird noises like the bearings are bout to go.

So in saying that I was wondering if anyone has good suggestions to balance between DBA and CFM. I can take up to 50DBA fans since I'm getting 4. These were a few that I had in mind.

(San Ace)
(Yate Loon)
(Gentle Typhoon 5400rpm)

San Ace are a grwat choice - if a) you have a fn controller b) you're deaf. I've got one with a controller; loud but awesome.

The gentle typhoons won't push as much air, but at the same time, are much quieter. (I have 4 as case fans).

I'd say the G.T's for case fans and San Ace for the heatsink.

I would get the San Ace for the heatsink and the Yate Loons for the case, never own the GT 5400rpm version, but the 1450rpm version is very quite. Just for your information, the yate loons actually is less noisy compare to San Ace regardless of the specification. Static pressure on the San Ace can tame pretty much any heatsink or radiator any higher you will need the Delta fans.

Alright sounds pretty good. Yea I just noticed the new gentle typhoons had came out but haven't heard much about them, so I figured I'd throw them in there to see what people said. I could split the order in half though. Does sound like a plan. I know static pressure is the main thing I would want to look for on a heatsink.
