Any fan recommendations? I was thinking about buying some different ones to make my rig a bit quieter smile.gif
At the moment im just running it with one NZXT fan that came with the case, got it exhausting out the back.

Also, the radiator actually does't even seem to be getting hot, I was expecting it to get warm at least, I take it thats normal? I'm used to being able to feel the heat on a heatsink lol

Be Quiet! ShadowWings 120mm 2200RPM with 29.7 dB noise specification or Scythe Glide Stream 120mm 1400rpm or 1600rpm (those are the new fans from Scythe), you can get 2000rpm glide stream but it's a bit noisier smile.gif

Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm 1850rpm has many users too, it should run at acceptable sound levels and move alot of air smile.gif

Macke93 suggestion are loud for my taste! I just hate noise, I actually got the quietest fans I could find, <15dBa and 74CFM 1350RPM

SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Case Fan
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835226042

These are pretty awesome too:
COUGAR CF-V12HPB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing PWM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553006

There are fans that move more air than these but for the very minimal noise the airflow is outstanding. I might switch to something higher powered in the future that is PWM so I can set a profile for it. My Silenx run at full speed all the time but are very quiet. The loudest fans in my case put out about 20dBa and I'm thinking of replacing them!

Not trying to talk crap Macke, just for me 29dBa might as well be a Mack truck idling next to my desk. wink.gif

I'm running Scythe GTP on my 620, keeps temps down to about 50c on 100%, and about 25-30 idle. I think i have a scythe slip stream and it is so loud for me frown.gif, wouldn't recommend it - does push a fair amount of air mind you.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I would really like some of them SilenX ones, they seem ridiculously quiet... but I don't think I can buy them in the UK.

Heres one of the closest I can find: http://www.ebuyer.com/387599-be-quiet-silentwings-2-120mm-bl062
(They are way too expensive)

Naw dont get those, try to get something with atleast 70CFMs. Give me some of your local vendors and I'll find something good that wont break the bank. My kid as a soccer game, or football for you rather, wink.gif , but I'll look when I get home.

Thank you very much smile.gif

I usually order online so anywhere like Amazon, eBuyer.com, Scan.co.uk, Overclockers.co.uk, Aria.co.uk.

Dang man I looked all over scan.co.uk and amazon and all I could find that sparked my interest was these Enermax fans, Enermax makes great products. They're expensive though

Yeah, they look like they would be amazing but that would actually kill the bank lol.

These ones are close to the specs of the enermax ones and they are cheap, but I hate lights rolleyes.gif: http://www.ebuyer.com/206654-coolermaster-120mm-sickleflow-fan-blue-led-r4-l2r-20ac-gp
