Windows 7: case and cpu fans

20 Dec 2010   #1

case and cpu fans

Can anyone recommend some aftermarket, quiet cpu and case fans?
The cpu is an AMD Phonom Quad Core 9600 2.3Ghz Socket AM2+
And the case fans are for a Gateway GT5676 Mid Tower (I believe it's a mid tower).
I have only roughly measured the case fans from the outside, but they look to be 80mm.

fill out what your motherboard is in system specs and make sure the case fans are 80mm

These will be good and relatively quiet. The more air you have moving through the case, the noisier it will be. The best you can do is buy fans that run quiet, and have good cable management. When airflow is interrupted, it generates more noise than the fan running.

This is a really quiet 80mm fan: - Nexus SP802512L-03 80mm Case Fan

Here are reviews from silentpc review (spcr) on 80mm fans, from which I decided to buy the nexus fan:

It is silent and moves a lot of air.

Liquid cooling still uses fans, but can be quieter than a large heatsink fan. I'd search for it on google shop, make sure to indicate that you want quiet

Case Fans
I'm putting a new rig together. All the fan headers on the mobo are four pin. All the case fans are three pin. Is there a solution to hook them to the board (adapter?)?
