I am curious to know what the highest number of fans someone has in one computer system.

I have 9.
2 120mm in the front
2 120mm in the back
1 120mm on the side
1 80mm on a hard drive
1 120mm on the CPU heatsink (which barely fits in the case),
1 80mm on the video card
1 120mm in the power supply.

They are all quiet fans, mounted with rubber plugs instead of screws to reduce the noise further, and the interior of the case is covered with sound dampening foam.

They keep the internal temperature down to 80 degrees and the CPU down to 110 degrees, even during SETI@Home.

I have 8 120mm fans in my case... 6 case fans and 2 fans on the cpu cooler.

I have 10 fans if you include the PSU and graphics card cooler.

Count them all, so you beat me with 10.

This is like what some men do with counting the cylinders in their garage . 1 in the leaf blower, 2 in the lawnmower, 6 in the car.

I'll assume that counts all fans, so:

Rear fan: 1x140mm
Top fan: 2x200mm
Side fan: 1x200mm
Front fan: 1x230mm
VGA cover: 1x120mm
GPUs: 2x80mm
PSU: 1x120mm
Radiator: 3x120mm

I think all those are for now. When new GPU arrives will add 2x120mm to the list.

I have 9:

Top fan: 200mm
Side fan: 200mm
Front fan: 200mm
Back fan: 120mm
PSU: 120mm
CPU: 2 x 120mm (push/pull)
GTX 470: 2 x 80mm (1 each card)

If it weren't for the fans in my Galaxy cards (which are very noisy), it would be a quiet and cool system. With those fans it's just a cool system.

GPU fan
CPU fan
Two case fans.

It's a hot like a hell.

Looks like the average so far is 7.

Now the real test would be to calculate air flow, but you'd need the specs from each fan. Calculate the windiest computer.

1 120mm rear case fan

I'm using a CoolerMaster Enforcer Casing.
1x 200mm Front Intake
2x 120mm on my Noctua U12P
1x 120mm Rear Exhaust.

I am left with my Top Casing , with a gapping hole.
Was thinking if I should put in another 200mm MegaFlow or 2 x 120mm Fans?
May 14, 2011 3:20:50 PM

2 system fans
Cpu fan
PSU fan
1 car blower motor
May 14, 2011 6:51:30 PM

I'd like to add more to mine but I don't think I have connections on my mobo (couldn't find them at least)

2x80 mm rear exhaust
Stock AMD heatsink (about to replace in a week with 120 mm heatsink)
80mm GPU fan
120mm psu exhaust

Only 5 but I have spare to add if only the ASUS M4A78T-E had more places to power the fans! Anybody that can prove me wrong please do :)
