Need Recommendations For PCI Exhaust Blower

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Heya,

So I'm 90% sold on buying this case:
Silverstone Sugo SG03B-F

I don't feel comfortable just yet case modding otherwise I would mod a 120mm exhaust fan on the top, so I want to get a PCI exhaust fan at the top.

I had a Mascool one before, but it was pretty loud. However it did move a ton of air.

Are there any others out there that OCN would recommend that aren't as loud? I was looking at this one too.

Perhaps is it possible to mod the 4pin molex to a 3pin pwm so that I can just hook it up to the motherboard for speed control?

These internal PCI slot coolers are all basically the same, IMHO. I do not think the 2 listed differ noticeably from each other.

An alternative is to use an external single PCI slot cooler, eg Nexus' Wave Air.
It has these advantages:
a. more quiet
b. free up internal space, which is quite precious for your upcoming Silverstone Sugo SG03B-F. As I also notice that when your MSI GTX460 Cyclone is installed in your Biostar TA890GXE, it takes up 2 slots and you only have the single most bottom slot empty. Freeing up that space by using an external cooler could be quite beneficial.
c. replace/upgrade with any 80mm fan in the future
d. comes with both 3-pin fan header/4-pin Molex connector

As for the disadvantages, it is pricey (US$21) and it takes up some space to the rear of the case.

Overall, I think this is worthy of your consideration.

Thanks for showing me that. I'll have to take a look. Also there's an extra PCI slot at the very top of the case above the IO area. So I dont have to worry about any of the PCI slots down near my video card being taken up.
