hi, i was just wondering what are the best cooling fans available as when i get my new PC i'm going to replace the stock fans that come with the Corsair Carbide 500r (white) with new fans and i want some decent ones for cooling but dont want to pay though the nose.
So far i've found these (link below) in 120mm and a 200mm fan for the side of the case.
I have 4 of them in my Corsair 800d case they are silent and push a great amount of air :-) in my opinion those are 1 hell of a good looking fan / color but no red sadly.
They look insane But i've just had a thought. For high flow cooling fans there would be the tendancy to haul in quite a bit of dust too. Now i dont know whether the case has its own dust filters for the front intakes and i know it doesnt have any for the side 200mm fan. For the exhaust fans, it doesnt matter so much. I know the corsair carbide 500r has a dust filter on the bottom of the case for the PSU i suspect and it stretches over for another 120mm fan for the bottom of the case, but i wont be using that.
Is it worth getting a dust filter, and if i do how much will it impede the airflow?
Thanks for all the help guys. Massive thanks to you all. While i was typing this reply i was attacked by PCEU virus. Honestly, have to say i very nearly crapped my pants until i realised it wanted money.
