Mates im using the Fractal Design Meshify C with the default fans 2x Dynamic X2 GP-12 (rear standard rpm and front turbo rpm directed to the cpu , im not using it on the default position) buying different fans is the best solution or the default ones are decent?! For what ive read the best solution is using 2x intake fans and 1x rear fan just to make sure i have positive air , my main questions are ; can i have 2 new intake fans (i do love silent fans) and 1 Dynamic X2 GP-12 exausting the warm air ? What kinda silent but pretty good intake fans should i buy ?

Specs: 8700k (Noctua u14s) , Gigabyte GTX 1070 ti Gaming OC

this is what im trying to do:

You should buy new 140mm intake fan(s) if possible for the front panel directly pointed at the GPU and relocate the existing ones to exhaust (or bottom intake if you use HDD). It won't make a huge difference though since it's a low restriction case unless your new fan(s) are either better (more CFM), bigger (more CFM), or faster (more CFM).


GamersNexus experienced a 2°C drop in GPU temperatures shifting to 2x NF-A14 fans with the CPU temperatures dropping a larger 7°C.

2 of those up front will be better than what you have. ^^^ And quiet.

I just upgraded my front intake fans on my arc midi r2 that come with fractal design Silent R2 fans to the corsair ml140 twin pack. It's a night and day difference.

Put your hand inside the case. Put fans to 100%. I bet you won't hardly feel anything. Upgrade the fans to ones with higher static pressure and feel the difference. I know I did. The corsairs push tons of air. They are a little loud at higher rpm tho.

I think it's fair to say ML's are much better airflow and pressure than the stock Dynamic X2 GP-12 case fans. GP-12 have 0.88mm H2O @ 1200rpm. ML120 @ 1152rpm makes 0.889mm H2O while PH-F120MP @ 1143rpm makes 1.016mm H2O .. PH-F120MP has both higher airflow and static pressure at same RPM as ML120 by a significant amount.

The MP series fans have good max pressure and free flowing cfm, but aren't anything special in the real world usage range.

All very true to everyone but the little sailboat groupies .. but I think they are afraid of falling off of the Earth too. :D

Guys how about the bequiet Silentwing 3 140mm? I would still using both Fractal Design x2 Dynamic gp12 (1 intake 1 rear) any idea why is there so many versions of the silent 3?like 069 067 and 065

Be quiet makes a 1000rpm version and a 1600rpm "high speed" version. They also make them in 3 pin and 4pin pwm. I'd get the high speed version. BL069 is 3pin. BL071 is 4 pin pwm.

Good fans and a good idea.

I've found using fans like X2 Dynamic GP12 even as an exhasut are not much if any good. I usually build a couple system a month and haven't used a rear fan in .. can't remember the last time I used an exhaust fan in traditional tower build. Good intake fans make exhaust fans a waste.

I would go with the high speed PWM, because I've found most systems with 2-3x 140mm intakes will spin 950-1100rpm to have needed airflow to supply CPU and GPU coolers with air 2-4c above room ambient. 1000rpm fans are just enough, but have nothing in reserve, and I like some untapped reserve airflow for those hot days when we want to do some rendering or some other extreme load use when 1000rpm just isn't quite enough airflow to keep things as cool as we want.

I would get PWM even if I didn't have PWM control simply because they work fine on variable voltage and will last longer than most of us keep one build .. and next build will likely have more PWM fan controlled headers. ;)

Are you saying you want to add a single SW3?
