Fan Controller and 120mm fans help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok i'm planning on playing with my case and this is my idea.

http://www.overclock.net/case-mods-g...ora-570-a.html

I came here to ask for good 120mm fans. I would love quiet ones but some of them don't deliver quite the cfm? Will buying high CFM fans together with a fan controller help with the noise when desired? For example you're playing a game and don't mind the noise so you can crank up the fans and also when you're just browsing and want a quiet system you can turn it down?

Any suggestions with the Fans and a good fan controller? Sorry for the ignorance with cooling fans

Thanks I appreciate your help

Try the CM's R4. May not be the best fan for cooling but it will give you a nice performance.

I'm talking about the first 4 on this link.

For case fan you can get the Scythe Typhoon A14 save money not having to buy fan controller. If you want a faster version like the A15 which is generally out of stock and just 1-2C better in term of performance, but with about 7dBA louder.
If you really want a fan controller I recommend the Sumbeam Rheobus or the newer Rheosmart.
