I was thinking about getting new fans for my antec 1200. Has anybody had experience changing fans with this case and seeing better results? My computer is running a little bit hot at the moment, which might be a result of me placing my heatsink wrong, but I still would like better air flow.
I would like them to be quiet I guess, but I really just want real nice airflow. Does anybody have any suggestions of fans that would be better than the stock fans?
Scythe is a good choice. Their fans are very popular. I use the Scythe S-Flex fans. Take a good look at the specifications for the different models they make.
The Ultra Kaze and the Slipstream are high volume fans. They move quite a bit of air. That also means more noise. If you are not a hardcore gamer that overclocks to the extreme, then the Scythe S-Flex, 1200 rpm version is a good choice because it's quieter than the others and the Antec Twelve Hundred has good ventilation to begin with. The choice is yours depending on how much air flow you really need.
