First off let me say Hi to all of you! I am a Hardcore PC gamer who enjoys a OC'ed CPU and Silent Gaming at the same time :D This however is a problem for me so I am here to ask for your advise!


I have just purchased a Coolit eliminator and it is in no way quiet! So basicaly I just wasted $150 bucks... Any way I have a Antec P182 and I need to silence it! My biggest problem is the top and rear fan. They are a bi noisey even on low and alot of internal noise is being chaneld out the back.


My other problem is my PSU. It is a 750W Silverstone nd runs silent when its being fed cool air but the P182 has a chamber down there so all that hot HDD air is fed right into my PSU. I have sot of fixed this by rotating that chambers fan so that it blows the hot air outside the front of my case... But now the fan above that one intakes that hot air into my case.


Ok never mind all that for now! I am looking for a CPU heatsink/fan and 4 120mm case fan replacements. I also need a replacement 120mm fan for my 8800 GTX H03 Plus cooler on my VGA :D Ideas? My budget is around $10 a fan MAX and they must have a rpm sensor and 3 pin conector.


I apreciate your time in helping me out! :wink:

Get Yate Loons for all your case fans, then attach to a fan controller - 7V is dead silent for idle/basic usage, kick it up to 9-12V for gaming, where your ingame sound will outperform the fan's noise.

For CPU cooler, get a ultra 120 or ninja - top 2 cpu HSFs out there. Oh and strap another YL on that.

The top rear exhaust isn't really necessary if you have the push-pull config on your CPU.

The HR-03 works great on a 8800GTX if you got the $$$, but Yate Loons are dirt cheap ($3-6), so you can save $$$ there...

Thanks heres the plan! My PSU fan now blows he hot air IN. Then it gets blown out the front of the case. The upper fan blows air IN as well. The top fan will get Seald and another 120 fan will go in the bay area that will blow OUT. That way I will have 3 120mm fans blowing out the FRONT and 1 taking in at the cpu and 1 80mm bringing in at the PSU
