Now it starts to make a lot of sense. I think in your case, modding it, it's just nor worth it. What GPU is that?

For 92mm fans I have found the old Blade Master's from Cooler Master to be the best when it comes to standard fans. I'm using several of them as case fans and GPU fans on older computers. If you can find them for cheap they may be a good option.

Looking back through the thread, sorry it got a little "heated" back there...

Already read the airflow guide multiple times, not to worry. I tried to say earlier, parts will get moved around among different cases before things settle down and it would not be worth it optimizing something that will change anyway.

Couldn't find specs on the Arctic P9. Might be interested if the rpm is high enough. Am located in USA.

I'm actually more concerned with the VRM than the core. VRM only has a tiny aluminum heatsink. What little air it gets would already be heated and slowed down by the main heatsink.

They look good and as long as the bearings survive they are very quiet even up to 1200 RPM.
Not quite the speed I was looking for, but thanks for pointing out a very reasonably priced alternative.
Most fans will fail very quickly when run horizontally with the hub facing up. I turned my case sideways to avoid this. Make sure all the fans are vertical. If it must have horizontal fans, the hub should face down. Very few fans available that blow away from instead of towards the hub. I used to use Arctic F12 Pro for horizontal fans blowing upwards but they're hard to find anymore.

Gone except for gougers at $27 each...

The Dayton is rated at 1.04 amp which is too high.

I eventually found some OEM fans to experiment with, the advertised specs look good but it's not something to be sure about.

Lookied at Arctic website and don't find any P9 fans there either. Here in EU we can get Arctic F9 for 4.95-6.95 €. If they are cheap enough there, maybe grab a couple and give them a try?

Your Zotac fans push air into fin pack. Years ago I tried fans pulling air from fin pack vs pushing in and found pushing air in cooled better. A quick scaling of your Zotac GTX 1070 Mini uses about 92mm fans. Key to good temps and low noise is supplying cooler with air at room temp vs air that has been mixng with heated air inside of case and can be 10c even 20c warmer than room after 10-20 minutes of heavy gaming / heavy loads.

P9 aren't out yet, only P8. They should come this year, Arctic has been slowly releasing the TC versions and so on.

Case is sideways, GPU fans vertical, don't need to get the F9 Pro. It was just a suggestion for Imprezzion for fans that don't rapidly fail when run horizontally facing up. In my past usage even though the F12 Pro had higher rpm it moved less air than the F12 (non-pro).

Makes sense, I couldn't find it either. But then how did Ciarlatano get one?

I wanted to try it to get some airflow over my drive sitting in a PCIe adapter and see if it helps drive temps at all. The card is stuck between the GPU and sound card and isn't getting much air over it, but the temps have been ok. I just wouldn't mind a little better....and I'm just curious..... Needs to come out either way since all it is doing is adding noise.

Oof....my bad. It's an F8 PWM. Not sure what I was thinking there.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Your 'rapidly fail' is garbage. Arctic fans last years mounted horizontal or vertical.
And don't come back with something about it using a sleeve bearing .. because there are really only 2 kinds of bearing (3 if we include magnetic), used in computer fans; sleeve bearing and ball bearing. Only real difference is quality of each. Sure, there are many variations of sleeve bearings, like riflingand straight grooving as well as different materials used, but they are still sleeve bearings. Either will last years if it's decent quality .. or can fali in months if not.

Both the pro and non-pro have the exact same "FDB" bearing.
The important difference is the orientation of the hub.
https://www.arctic.ac/us_en/arctic-f9-pro-pwm.html
https://www.arctic.ac/us_en/arctic-f9-pwm-pst.html
Most fans blow toward the hub. Arctic Pro fans are (were - F12 Pro seems to have been discontinued) the only readily available fans that blow away from the hub. There are a few others but they don't sell separately, only with heatsink.
