Im looking to find an adapter for my thermaltake CU+ so I can use a larger fan on my Athlon XP. Can anyone suggest an adapter or fan that would work well? Thanks.
I have a 80mm Sunon 50cfm fan with THIS adaptor on my Vantec cooler (replacing the very loud Delta 38cfm). My temps haven't changed but the case is a lot quieter than it was before.

BTW, their service was excellent. Got it in 3 days UPS ground.
Delta 80mm 80cfm
Delta 80mm 68cfm

Those would be the only fans I would go when switching to another adapter! :D
If you wish to pay the money, I have found Papst fans to be a quieter alternative to the Deltas. The Deltas can't be beat if you can tolerate the noise, but of the slower / quieter fans alternatives, I have not found any better than Papst. Good Luck.

Exactly, I went to a larger fan to get away from the noise of the Delta's not to get a faster louder delta. :D
