Well I have the Coolermaster HAF 932 case and the rear exhaust fan that comes with the case, well..to be frank this fan sucks (and not in the good way) Looked up the specs on their site for the fan
http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/prod...roduct_id=2810

They have it rated at 1200 RPM, 60 CFM, 17 dBA, and so I looked on Newegg for something with better CFM for the money..and all I could find was ones with low 70s for CFM. Not worth the money..

Surely there's gotta be something out there? I'm not one of those people that will just stick to quiet fans so if it blows good air I'm in, but I do have 1 requirement that I want to stick with..the fan has to be able to hook up to the motherboard.

Thoughts?

you might have to branch out from newegg for something like that, try petras and frozenCPU, i also have this fan and i personally think that 60cfm is just a blatant lie, the 230s seem to move some **** around, but this exhaust fan bottlenecks the cpu heatsink like whoa

Nice, but discontinued on their site..found it on Amazon however

But, is that a fan with a RPM selection? I don't want something like that..prefer just a straight no nonsense high speed CFM fan.

Edit: It seems it does have a RPM select on it

Dumb question..but if it hooks directly into the motherboard how would you switch the speeds on it? I don't see a switch?

That 140cfm YL is going to be a screamer at almost 50db. Unless you don't care about your hearing you would want to get a fan controller as well. Turn it down a bit to a more sane sound level.

I think this Noiseblocker would do very well, it's 90cfm at only 27db. You will barely even hear this sucker. Granted it's much more expensive then the YL but the YL with a fan controller will be more then the Noiseblocker. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27344
