Case fan recommendations Tags: Power Supplies Cases Fan Components Last response: June 24, 2010 1:51 PM in Components Share lfforte June 24, 2010 9:20:11 AM I have an antec solo case. The stock fan is quiet on low setting but I find the power supply gets hot when I run it on low. The fan cools well on medium setting but I find it too noisy. Is there a good quality fan that cools well and is very quiet?

I have only the one fan in the rear. | Report abuse semu June 24, 2010 11:10:08 AM Well, it would help if you'd tell us what components (including case) you got and do you overclock etc. | Report abuse lfforte June 24, 2010 11:10:48 AM Is the Scythe fan a quiet fan? | Report abuse lfforte June 24, 2010 11:11:28 AM No overclocking, intel i5-750, antec solo case, radeon HD4850 | Report abuse semu June 24, 2010 11:21:25 AM If you're not gonna overclock, 1x 120mm fan will do fine. I recommend you to buy the Scythe GT 1150, it's quiet and got a good airflow too. | Report abuse lfforte June 24, 2010 11:56:43 AM semu said:If you're not gonna overclock, 1x 120mm fan will do fine.

I can't find that at NCIX or newegg so I need something else | Report abuse lfforte June 24, 2010 11:59:27 AM Ok found scythe GT1500 but it has an airflow of only 37cfm | Report abuse semu June 24, 2010 12:03:08 PM If you won't overclock, the airflow will be enough. If you still want a better one, Noctua NF-P12 is one choice. | Report abuse lfforte June 24, 2010 12:09:03 PM I find that the installed tricoll fan at low setting (39 cfm) is not enough. The PSU seems to get hot | Report abuse semu June 24, 2010 12:16:55 PM I'd say that GT 1150 has higher airflow, as the tricool at low is only about 850rpm. The CFM's what manufacturers tell, can be totally bulls***. | Report abuse lfforte June 24, 2010 12:26:46 PM The antec solo case manual says: Low setting, 1200RPM, 39cfm, 25 dBA I have no idea if these are true | Report abuse semu June 24, 2010 12:36:28 PM Doesn't sound very low to me lol. But yeah, here's a link for comparison of many fans: http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/534/fansalpha.png As you can see, Antec tricool L fails the test as the temperature goes too up. GT-1150 has the same sound pressure level, but it passes the test. | Report abuse lfforte June 24, 2010 1:51:26 PM The fan on the PSU is running but doesnt seem to be too efficient. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Case fan recommendations> Related ressources: ForumCase recommendations ?
