Thought this would be fun. So how many fans do you have total in your case?

I'll start off:

6x 140mm Phanteks Case
8x 120mm BitFenix in Push/pull on my 480 rad

Total: 14

Not including the 3x 90mm on my 1070 and 1x 140mm in my psu.

A mear 7 (8 with temporary air cpu) ...

3 top 120 going 140
2 front 140
1 rear 140
1 bottom 120
1 120 (temp air for cpu)


Sizes subject to change in the next week or so depending on new/replacement cpu cooling, push pull may also come into play on a rad , etc ...

don't need much running open blocked up on mobo box you could run one underneath optional, 2/3 on d14 80s on 1060 and psu fan...but case wise throw as much in there as you can you could run a bunch and still be under a few amps it's minuscule.

Dang. I thought I had the most fans, lol. Even with 14 fans my case is relatively silent. I remember the days using the Vantec Tornados :eek: If you had 2 you were in the big leagues. If you had more you had a hearing problem.

I can say that my build is not even near quite. Between the open chassis sitting less than 2 feet away at head level and the fact that I run everything at 100% it can be quite loud.

2x Noctura ippc-3000 140mm fans (intake/rad fans, loop not installed right now though, so intake fans)
1x NZXT 140mm FZ fan (top exhaust)
1x NZXT 120mm FZ fan (back exhaust)
Whatever fan comes with the 212 Evo on the cooler.

Currently 7, not including the fans on my GPU or the fan in my power supply.

2x Corsair AF140L front intake
2x Cougar CF-V12HB bottom intake
1x NZXT FN140-RB (more airflow to the graphics card)
2x Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15's (radiator pull fans/exhaust fans)

Had 11 fans in my old case, which was maybe overkill for the heat levels produced by the old system.

wow, you guys have some serious fan counts! I think the new build will have maybe 7-8?? 5 on the rad's, MAYBE one in the front above the 240 rad, one in the bottom, and MAYBE one in the back. But not sure on that yet.
