Haf X replacing case fans + CPU Heatsink fit?


I'm planning to replace the case fans in my HAF X (side, 2 top and 1 rear). Keeping the front 230mm.
What are some good 200mm fans? and 1 120mm exhaust.
I would prefer quiet + good cooling offcourse, but that is pretty obvious on fans :)

For the 200mm's I was thinking about red LED CM megaflows (to match the front fan and the case)
Are they any good?

Then a CPU heatsink issue: I'm planning to buy the Scythe Mugen 2 rev. B, but I'm not sure if it will fit with my RAM.
I have this setup:
ASRock extreme4 gen3
Corsair vengeance 8gb DDR3 1800Mhz

Any help here is welcome!

  1. I read about Sleeve Bearing or Ball bearing fans which don't function well in vertical/horizontal position.
    I need 1 200mm and 1 120mm vertical and 2 200mm's horizontal.
    Is it such a big problem to get thesame CM megaflows for horizontal and vertical?
  2. I really need to know if the Mugen 2 revB will fit in my setup!

    Thanks ;)
  3. i think mugen 2 will fit in your setup(tightly i guess).you may also consider 212+ EVO.
    for case fans i am using coolermaster sickflows 120mm fans in thermaltake armour+ and they are very good performer IMO.they are quiet and cool.coolermaster megaflow 200mm fans are also good(my frined have in HAF X nvidia edition).
  4. K, going with the 3 x 200mm RED megaflow + 1 120mm red sickleflow :)

    Can anyone confirm that the mugen 2 rev. B will actually fit?

  5. why you want mugen 2 only?
  6. Because it is recommended by lots of people?
    Low price, excellent cooling and quietness?
  7. Vengeance ram is tall 52mm won't be a problem if you have 2x4gb and are only using 2 slots.
    They make low profile Vengeance kits if you ever wanted to add more ram.
    It's identical to the taller kits in everyway but made for HSF clearance issues.

    i know that mugen 2 is very good cooler but still its way too big.
    what about 212+ EVO.xellent cooler,killer looks,cooling,and reliablity,

    and this one will feasily fit in case too lol :sol:
