i need to find an 80mm fan for my mother's case (old and dusty). I want to see if the cooling the case could be a solution for her comp crashing all the time. Might be some components prob, but 10$ is worth the try. So for you which fan is the best? i was thinking zalman zm-f1 or antec 80mm clear. The noise doesn,t really matter, i need something that can move the air in the old ECS case.
Before buying a fan, you'd better make sure that the fans and heatsinks are clean of dust bunnies. That alone can make a computer crash since the heat transfer does not happen anymore. Clean all heatsinks completly; that should solve the issue.
