Windows 7: CM Hyper 212 Evo - Alternative Fan (2nd Fan), Need Reccomendations

CM Hyper 212 Evo - Alternative Fan (2nd Fan), Need Reccomendations

Thinking of going with a push-pull set up for CM 212 Evo using the stock fan on one side. What's a good (preferably quiet) fan for the opposite side (pull)

Needs to be 120mm btw, the CM 212 Evo comes with mounting brackets to attach the fans either side.

Welcome to Seven Forums EvilPengy. I'm a Noctua fan (no pun intended ). This fan would be a good match for the stock CM fan. Or even better, get 2 and replace the stock fan

Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

I'm sure others will have suggestions. You want to make sure the airflow specs are similar lest you build up air flow inside the cooler.

Stock fan:

Fan Speed
600 – 2,000 RPM (PWM) ± 10%
600 – 1,600 RPM (PWM) ± 10% (EU Version)

Fan Airflow
24.9 – 82.9 CFM ± 10%
24.9 – 66.3 CFM ± 10% (EU Version)

Fan Air Pressure
0.3 – 2.7mm H2O ± 10%
0.3 – 1.7mm H2O ± 10% (EU Version)

Note that the cooling difference with the 2nd fan will be minimal. A Guy

Yeh, I was looking at the Noctua fans, they have a pretty nice design too.

Quick questions though, how are they like for noise? I guess they use standard 3 pin connectors too?

They are known as the quietest fans. That one I linked to is a PWM fan, but they make 3 pins fans as well

Definitely Noctua, hands down some of the best fans on the market. You can run them dead quiet and they still push quite a bit of air.

@ A guy: why EU version is weaker? is the rest of the world hotter?

Sweet! Thanks for advice guys, really helpful.

I'll most likely pick up 2 of their 120mm 3 pin fans then, I'll have a look see if any UK online retailers have them

Thanks!

The EU apparently wants to regulate everything, no? They don't want you to have a powerful PC I guess
