Hello everyone. I have just assembled my new PC in the Antec 900 case. I unsure at what level (low, medium or hight) I should be setting the case fans at. I want to get the right balance between airflow and noise.

Just to give you an idea of what's inside my case, here are the big heat generators:

  • Intel i7 920
  • GTX 260
  • Corsair 750 Watt PSU
  • 6GB Dominator RAM
  • 650GB Western Digital Hard Drive

    There are 4 fans in total. Two at the very front, mounted in the hard drive cages, one very large fan at the top (200mm) and one at the very rear of the case. They are all adjustable in their RPMs.

    What would you set them at?

    Cheers guys.

    I would monitor the temperatures with Real Temp and HWMonitor and adjust the fans accordingly:

    CPU-Z
    Real Temp
    HWMonitor

    What kind of temperature should I be trying to maintain?

    I would set them all on low for starters and see how you do. Most likely, you will have no instability problems.
    My system has similar components in a case with lesser cooling, and I have no problems. If you want quiet, a good oem cpu cooler can help.
