new fans for antec 900

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I would like to replace the tricool fans in my antec 900 case with new fans.

The fans I would like must move lots of air,have blue led and have the red,black,yellow 3 pin plug so when I connect them to my fan controller it will show me the rpm of the fans.

Also I would like a new 200mm fan with blue led that moves lots of air and has the red,black,yellow 3 pin plug.

any help would be great thanks.

so you are switching from the Tri-Cool fans to a set of fans that will be compatible with a fan controller?

Yate loon D12SL-12 can come with blue leds, xigmatek fan have leds too here and here.

As for 200mm fan all I know is that they don't push a lot of air and that two 120mm's out preform them. But it is likely someone here knows a great one.Just be careful when picking a 200mm fan some of them are only for certain cases.

to mesaone

the answer is yes. I do have my tricool fans connected to my fan controller with molex to 3 pin adapters which I made but but the tricool fans do not show rpm because they do not have the yellow wire only the red and black one.

no blue led's

Good luck finding some Blue led fans that have better flow than the tricools, They are really good fans(for led fans). And there currently are no 200mm fans that will fit the top mounting hole(of antec case's) without some modding to the case, or fan. Unless your having some crazy temps to fight with, I would stick with the TRI-cool fans.

If you dont mind not having some LED fans the Gentel Typhoons are amzing fans!

Just buy lights or cold cathodes.

The 200mm blue LED is hard to replace, since one of the only alternatives is a CM MegaFlow 200 which doesn't fit in the Bigboy's place due to holes.


As for replacing the Tri-Cools, CM R4's are quite nice with a fan-controller. I had 3 blue ones before I went all GT AP-14's. The case looks better without LED's.
