HAF 912 PLUS fan positioning

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, i am going to be buying more fans to my HAF 912 plus.
Should i move the front fan that comes with the case to the top of the case, and buy two 120mm red led fans to the front and side? or shoould i put the two 120mm fans to the top and side? which option gives more airflow?

Okay, The Plus model comes with a Red 200mm front led fan rated at 110CFM, if you purchase two 120mm and just put one in front you'll be losing out on CFM output as a 120mm normally doesn't put out as much CFM alone as that one 200mm now in the front.

So for the most CFM's two of these in front and one on the side panel http://cmstore.coolermaster-usa.com/...roducts_id=261 which are rated at 69CFM @ 2000 RPM's or instead one 200mm Megaflow fan @ 110CFM in front.

I have an HAF 912 Basic and I purchased two 200mm fans which I placed in front and top respectively, the stock 120mm already installed from the factory in the rear and a 120mm on the side panel.

The question becomes if you're going to run these fans at full speed. You can keep the 200mm you have now in front and add 2 120mm on the top - all up to you.

Yeah, that's what i meant, should i put the 2 120mm to the front ot the top?
I was sort of in a hurry typing this in the morning, so it probably came out confusing...

These are the fans i'll be purchasing, as far as i can see they're the same as the ones you linked:

Edit.S. I'll probably be running them on full speed, since i don't have a fan controller and never really screw around with any software based fan speed controls.

You could actually experiment.

First try it with the 200mm fan which is already installed in the front and put the two 120mm on the top = then monitor the temperatures.

Then you can reverse it of putting the 200mm fan on the top and the 2 120mm fans in the front = then monitor the temperatures.

Then make a choice based on your findings.

This is what I would do.
