fans?


Hey guys i have a 300r and it has 7 spaces for fans (120/140) 2 of them are already occupied and i want my computer to have good air flow what should i do? How many fans should i buy and what types? I am not looking to spend $14 on a fan sorry not that into it but i just want enough to make a difference, have good air flow and have cool air reach my components. Also is a fan controller worth the money?

If you are looking for decent quality case fans and don't want to break the bank, look no further than the Yate Loon Low fans, which you can get for $5 each when you buy at least 4 of them. The 140 mm version of those fans sells for $6 each when you buy 4 of them

+1 on the YateLoons. unless you get the high speed versions you probably will not need a fan controller. They are pretty quiet fans IMO.

My links are in my post. Both are from Jab-Tech, but the Petra's link that Mandrake gave you is to the same 120mm Yate Loon low speed fan. Jab-Tech used to have a lower quality low speed Yate, but they also started sourcing directly from Yate Loon themselves for the 1 I linked so it's the same fans as PTS now.

I've been using 6 of these blue led Yate low speed fans right here along with 3 of the medium version right here in my U2-UFO case for around 3 years with no problems from them. All still work well and are quiet, including the 2 I have installed horizontally in the top of the case.

It means the rpm they turn, which in turn affects the cfm and noise. If you are going for case fans, I would go with the low speed models for quietness. They still move plenty enough air for good ventilation. For heatsink use you could go either the low speeds or the medium speed fans. The mediums have higher cfm and more importantly for heatsink use, a higher static pressure, which helps cooling on your heatsink. But they are also noisier too. So you have to balance the cooling with your ability to tolerate fan noise.

Personally, I enjoy a little bit of flair to my case. Here is my setup for my 300R:
In the front I have 2 white, and top 2 reg http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...id=257&area=en. Very quiet, about $17 each.
The side and rear exhaust I have 3 http://www.enermax.co.uk/produkte/lu...bapollish.html. Again, $17, looks very nice, and best of all removable Twister Bearing Technology blades.
To finish things off, I use a Kaze Master Flat fan controller (see reviews). All in all, whisper quiet setup with great airflow and looks awesome!

The Yate Loons come with both 3 pin fan headers and molex connectors. So you can choose which way you want to power them. As for a fan controller that's cheap and good, I'll let someone else chime in there as I haven't messed around with them in a while.
