Case Fans Replacement

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey y'all. I was just curious to ask and wanting to know if anyone's got any experience with removing the 200mm Big Boy and replacing it with an NZXT 200mm Rifle Bearing Case Fan.

I'm planning to replace all the fans in my 902 with Scythe replacements (Gentle Typhoons me thinks) and I'm just curious to know if the Big Boy is replaceable as well, since I want to get rid of as many of the LEDs in the case as possible and just having Cold Cathodes in selected places instead of everywhere.

Thanks!

Personally I would save your money and just remove the leds from the big boy. The NZXT and big boy are fairly comparable in performance and pulling out a few leds isnt worth 10 bucks.

If you want to replace the big boy with the NZXT because the NZXT is a white fan, well that is a different story. I cant comment on weather it will fit or not because I dont have my 900 with me so I would wait for someone else to chime in.

Good idea with the GTs though. The stock antec tri speeds arent bad fans, but they are no typhoons either.
