Is the need to stay with 3 wire fans for sound levels. Why not just stick to 4 wire fan replacements?

Yeah you could buy a new fan with a 4 pin configuration.
But I quite like my corsair AF140 and Sp120's

keeping it low noise for everyday use - then full blast when pushing it ?
i am leaning on the corsair sp120 fans - and i have a idea which may or may not work -
if i use the 3 pin fans - and connect the fans to a Y cable which is PWM 4 pins - both fans to the Y cable - then the Y cable going to the Antec fan cable - but just one of the fan cables would be used - the 4 pin one - and then connect the antec cable to the CPU on board
do you think that would work the fans from the chill software ?
last option i guess is the Fan controller - which i happen to have - and have one channel free - i have all my fans on the fan controller -
if i did use the fan controller for both the fans with the Y cable - the chill software wont controller the fans - but would i still see the liquid temps on the Chill software ? just no fan activity ?

I changed fans because I wanted a lower noise.
My Sp120 quiets (@1500RPM) provide the same amount of cooling and better static pressure than the antec fans on 2500RPM, but are 10x more quieter.
As for Y split - don't know, but the antec cooler comes with a y split already, so you would just plug it into there.
As fore working - as they are 3 pin ones, they won't work fully - and will remain stuck at 1500RPM.

I was looking into fan controllers myself, but as I have a 3 pin fan configuration, all that will allow me to do is change the fan speed MANUALLY, but it won't do it on the fly (thus automatically)

i dont mind going with the 4 pin fans - just so happens the SP 120 are 3 pin - and i hear good things about that fan -

the Y cable on the antec has two fan connections - one is 3 pin and one is 4 pin -

what i was thinking was if i end up with the SP120 3 pin fans - then i would connect my Y cable to the SP120 fans and the Y cable end to the Antec Y cable on the 4 pin -

would leave the other 3 pin connector from the Antec empty and - then plug it in the CPU header


just wondering if that would work -


or else - Can you Recommend me any High Static Fans for cooling the Red 4 pin ?

if the SP fans remain stuck at 1500 Rpm - does it still cool better than stock fans - how much better in terms of temps ?

how many degrees lower did you get ? 3C or 5C etc,

temps are IDENTICAL but the sound levels are greatly reduced.

Stock fans at 600-800rpm (idle) are quieter
Anything above that, the sp's are quiter @1.5k rpm

i just found these fans - the specs look very good - and its PWM

http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6684


look at the static pressure on this one - very nice - and its 4 pin

now the only thing i see strange is - just this model in RED show those specs


if you click on the Blue or Black etc, - the specs are lower in the static pressure - but same model ?

i though that was strange - i would get the RED to be safe - this may be the better Fan plus you can control it also -

take a look - what do you guys think ?

I sell fans for industrial applications, rule of thumb is ball bearing last longer but is a little noisier, sleeve bearing is quiter but wears out sooner if mounted verticle. The new hybrids are fluid and stuff. This might be a ball bearing that runs silent. I have never heard bad stuff about coolermaster fans. I don't know if they subcontract their fans or make in house though.

Would you know if i use Two of the Cooler master fans on my Antec 920

they are 4 pin fans -

would the board be ok with the power draw and amps of two of these fans ?


Amps = 0.45 - Max = 0.7

Power = 5.4 watts - Max = 8.4


thats for each fan - i would use two fans connected to the antec wires and in the CPU header

i am looking over the manual and cant fine any details or specs about how much wattage and amps the header can handle

thanks

PWM 4 pin fan is standerdized if they are 4 pins they will work. I kept the stocks on so i really don't want to comment. You are right I can't even find a model number on the Antecs.

i think i am going with the coolermaster - they have very good specs - highest pressure rating i seen so far unless moving up to HIGH Speed Delta fans etc,

i also found Cooljag fan everflow model - they have a few - have to look at specs to get high pressure model - good price - but out of stock and cant find them online any where else


coolermaster is neck and neck with the specs - and has a LED - - i found them on ebay - just a few dollars over the Cooljag - so its good


will replace my cooler fans and my side window fan with these - should make a big improvement i think

i am running prime now since 9am at 4.5 - seems very stable - and temps are not bad either with my cougar - in the 70C range most of the time - can hit 80C and a bit more at times -

its much cooler in my room today also - compared to later at night -

i will post back with temps after


cooler shows liquid temp at 41C when loaded and warmer in my room - now its at 38C - not sure how long i will run prime before i stop and try for 4.7 -
