I have a question about fans. I'm running a very old ATX case with only 2 fans in front and 1 in the back (not including the powersupply). Since I have two Drive slots open, what I'm planning to do is fill that area with 2 fans and a piece of mesh in the front. My question is, what's the best fan to use for the job? I need something high powered since there's very little airflow due to the extremely wimpy fans that came with the case.<br />
<br />
Thanks in advanced,<br />

How about just replace the stock fans with higher flow ones, not suoer high flow like the delta fans, because they are soo loud its unbearable. Just replace them with say these!<br />
