Default Xiggi HDT-s1283. What fan to throw on it? And check this out.



Doing that on a xigmatek s-1283? with 2 scyth s-flexes... imagine the possibilities!

what fan do you guys run on your air coolers if not stock? anyone got a bench of different fans?

Make sure you get the mounting kit with it too, i just ordered this on sale at NCIX with a xigmatek mounting kit.

I would keep the stock fan till the 120 yate loons go on sale for $4.99 again.

Oh ahaha, thought you're about to buy one cuz its on sale.

I think yate loon 120's are the best for the price since their so quiet. Just copy the picture you have, using zip ties.

Can't you use case fans on these as well? They're all 120mm in size and I've seen some pretty cheap but good CFM case fans...
