Case fans upgrade
This isn't actually a question about cpu coolers but more about case fans.

I have a 500r with a h100 all at stock.

but when its on load its too much noise for me.

i know its all stock, ive been trying to figure out what 120/140mm fans to upgrade with.

but i have no idee where to go.

anyone here know where to point me for some silent(er) fans but with good performance?

i know the spector pro is close but not sure how good it is and something like the coolermaster excaliber at 50$ is a little too much...

Actually i just found what kind of fans ibuypower/cyberpowerpc are using

check out Enermax

good fans for < 20$ :punk:

if you are looking on the cheaps, arctic cooling seems to fairly quiet and something more expensive i would go with noctuas. you can check out silent pc review they have a whole slew of fans they tested and it lists prices and some other variables as well noise etc.

fan controller with Y adapters depending on how many fans you wanna hook up. Problems solved.

if you dont care what they look like go for Scythe Slipstream 1900RPM Edition

they have 110cfm with 37 dba which you can either turn down yourself with a controller or Q fan if you have Asus Board

i had 2 of these on my 240 Rad... and these were amazin

if too loud go for the 1200rpm with 69cfm instead ;)
