HAF X - 200 + 230mm Fan replacements

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello, looking for fans with HIGH HIGH HIGH CFM. The stock fans that come with it move "110" cfm but I suspect it's BS. Please lead me to some high cfm fans Thanks.

I'm also interested in good 200mm fans.

The whole 200/230mm fans for computer cases is quite new still it seems. The only other fan thats worth looking at in this range is the ANtec big boy.. however those fans dont mount very well on all cases.

There really are no "high preformance" 200/230mm fans. Replace them with a bunch of 120s, or just install another CM MegaFlow up top. The temps will be 2-5c tops in difference anyway.

Remove the Top Dust filter(s) (if you have a fan there)

I have the fan in the picture below (both top fans in my HAF X)
(this isn't the pic of my actual fan, just random pic of that fan from image search)

It gets REALLY loud, but I don't care, so I like it for the CFM.
The thing is, the mounting is weird and the fan isn't big enough to be properly mounted, so all I did was secure each fan with one screw. Kinda ghetto, but works for me. I don't know the model number, since I just grabbed 2 off a store shelf, but chances are your local stores have these fans in stock.

Those are made for NZXT cases and are 192mm. Not recommended for anyone with a true 200mm mount. Very loud due to vibrations and an utter pain for little increase in air.

Yeah, was just reading about them, they are actually 192mm. Here's a thread about them.

Yeah, I have seen those fans but I don't want fans that aren't properly sized. How would you mount 120mms on the 200mm slots?
