Fans

I am currently looking in to fans to toss in to my case... I just bought some ThermalTake TT-8025T's and they are okay, I guess. The problem is that I need more, and I need more CFM and also less noise. The sizes of fans I need are 80x80x25mm. They need to be 3 pin (To work with the DD5.)

Any reccomendations? And where is the best price (Best price also means low shipping.)

Thankx

www.plycon.com has a good selection of fans


And you might want to check this thread out.

80mm or 120mm

Plycon is too expensive...yeah he's got a nice selection but he is about the highest around.

Have you thought of adding a 120mm? Don't know your situation but the best bang for the buck (and I don't mean money) is a 120 where you can get significant airflow, say 75-90cfm with a relatively quiet fan....under 35dBA.

And these low speed 120mm fans have no problem to hook up via a 3 pin connector so your DigiDoc5 can still be involved.

Just a thought-

Yep, I oted for the 120mm fans

Asked for the (2) 120mm YS TECH 131 cfm 3pin fans. And have DD5 auto turn them on when the temp rises. Coz over here in the Philippines, ambient temps are just way too high.

I chekd the Tech specs of the DD5.....it can handle 1amp/12watts per connector and the YS TECHs are rated at 7.92watts each.

Well, we'll see what happens when one puts 2 131cfm fans on top of a case. heheheehhe

Sunon fans! They're cheap and quiet. I think I paid $4 plus S/H at a Canadian site. It took a week to get to NY, but I didn't care.

Humm... I currently have just the one 80mm ducted to my heatsync, and I can't make it go from 120mm to 80mm, because of pipe size. I could add a 120mm on the top of my case I guess, to suck out air.

So back to 80mm. I need 4 80mm fans (1 on front, 1 on back, 1 on side, 1 on heatsync) and then I am thinking about putting a fan over my GeForce4Ti4400 and where my sound card will be. I think that will be a 80mm or a 60mm...

Where can I buy Radiation fan covers, at a good price (both 80mm)?

What brand makes the most quiet (under 30db) and highest CFM for the volume? Where can I buy them?

If you insist on quiet AND under 30cfm AND quality fans, there is of course...Panaflo.

Model FBA08A12L1A 24cfm 21dBA
Model FBA08A12M1A 32cfm 28dBA
Model FBA08A12H1A 39.6cfm 32dBA

There's always Deltas...I'm using some AFB0812H fans I got cheap and they're 35cfm 31dBA and work just fine. You can get these for $7-10 whille the Panaflos will set you back like $12-15.

Do those Panaflo's have 3 wire connections? I couldn't find any with 3 wires (From Panaflo)... I am not saying that I need under 30CFM, I am saying I need under 30db

Yes I understand your dBA requirements. One good thing about Panaflos is the wires connect to the fan inself via a 3 pin connector...they're not soldered. So you can get one of these connectors that has a 3 pin on the other end and...BINGO! DigiDoc5 lives to monitor another day.

Now finding those connectors is another matter...let me check real fast...yep just as I thought. $1.50 at Case Etc

Quote:
This is a 3-pin tail that you can plug into a Panaflo fan to convert to a 3-pin fan. This will not work with some of the high-powered Panaflos. This tail is machine made and is made to plug directly into the fan.

I am thinkin' of getting... 4 (2 front, 1 side, 1 back) 80mm and 1 60mm (side, for GeForce4Ti4400). The 60mm would be lower power, as it's only going a small distance and I have heard bad things about the whine of 60's.
