PWM = garbage :P

I'd much rather just have my fan spinning at a constant speed. Fans are so quiet these days and move so much air that you don't need PWM anymore.

Well I got an antec900 is there any easy way to install the bolt threw kit with that case. I am not much for totally scrapping my rig to put on a heat sink. I rather like the pins for this reason. Is it completely necessary to use the bolt thew kit I dident on my Arctic 7 pro

+1 for the extra effort removing the motherboard. The push pins on 99.9% (if not all) mounting systems for heatsinks are absolutely terrible.

OK what kit do you recommend I get then? Also what do you think of this fan I don't want it to be to loud With the tricools at med speed it is loud enough already. NCIX.com - Buy Scythe Slip Stream Kaze Jyuni 120MM Fan 1200RPM 68.5CFM 24DBA - SY1225SL12M In Canada.

I also suggest the Vendetta 2 with a bolt-thru kit and Scythe S-Flex or the Scythe Slip Stream.

After looking at my case and board I cant fit any of the bigger coolers so I have it down to two choises now that being the OCZ Vendetta or the Kingwin RVT-9225. Also I have the fan's narowed to NMB-MAT (Panaflo) 92MM or the Scythe Gentle Typhoon 92MM

With your setup you can use any cooler you want.

If you are going to replace the fan with a Noctua, why not just go with the U12P? I may be plugging it a bit as I use it with my E8500. It's a great cooler, very well put together, and comparable in price since it includes the fan. *edit* scratch that idea, I just checked today's price, woah, I got lucky.

Oh, but for sure go with a bolt through kit, so worth it.

i am 100% sure any fan thats smaller the the TRUE 120 will fit your case unless your using the side fan , i agree the bolt thru kit are a pain to install in a fully running system. it took me hours to take my mobo apart to attach the bolt thru + the TRUE and put it back .

And yea the bolt thru kit is a must for heavy Heat sinks, you dont want it to drop and kill your GPU or maybe it might take the sound card too . if i were you i wont take my chances. when i removed my stock hsf i notice one of the pins on it were off , i knew i got all 4 of them right when i put the mobo in the case, even saw youtube videos on how to do it too and how it should look like . Those push pins are just piece of and intel knows it
