Hey everyone,

I have an older Swiftech MC370 cooler that I would like to lower the noise level on. Anyone know of a good quiet 70mm fan?

I came across the Evercool EC7015HH12C that looks like it would fit the bill but I can't find any opinions on it. Anyone heard of it or better yet, used it? According to ExoticPC, it's rated at 42 CFM with a noise level of 32.0 dB. That's significanlty better than the Papst fan on the stock 370.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

???
I thought the MC370 used a 60mm fan?
Are you sure its 70mm?

Actually, you're right! I remember reading that is was a 70mm but now that I've looked again, it appears to be a 60mm. That should make life easier. Thanks for pointing our my error.

Anyone know of any good quiet 60mm fans?

well any slower fan will be quieter.
I thought those pabst ones were pretty decent anyway.
And with a slower quieter fan comes a reduced cooling ability.

so you could:
A. get a slower 60mm fan.
B. get a rheostat for variable speeds
C. get a 60mm to 80mm adaptor and run a slow 80mm fan instead, or a temp controled 80mm smartfan.

just remember high speed 60mm fans will have a higher pitched whine to them. i have a pabst on mine which pushes i think around 40cfm )
