Help suggest some fans?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have some rather old 120mm fans that are rather noisy under load that I'm looking to replace but have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to fans; I'm more knowledgeable with the rest of a computer than fans.

 

I plan to replace 3, as the two on my AIO are new (less than half a year), the rest are going on 4+ years but are really loud in comparison.

 

Price doesn't matter a whole lot, I know I want 4-pin, and looks don't change much for me as long as they are black (if they are led, as long as they can go red, I wont complain :P)


System specs if they help any:

I7 8700k - Base clock, might overclock at some point

Corsair Hydro H100I V2 Cooler

RTX 2080

16gb DDR4

 

Temps at idle (Time of writing this):

GPU: 55C

CPU: <33C across the board

 

Under load:
GPU: ~70C (In Satisfactory with max settings)

CPU ~65C (Cinebench R20)

 

The fans I've looked at:

 


GIGABYTE Z97MX-G516GB DDR3 | I5 4690k @ 4.4ghz | 1TB SSHD, 500GB HDD, 128GB SSD | GTX 1070 8GB | Corsair Graphite 230 | EVGA 650W | Hyper 212 EVO

 

Cinebench R15: 636(all cores), 127FPS

They look pretty good :) I'll probably get them but I want to wait for a few other replies first, see if there are any other suggestions.

What case and fans are your current using?

Your temps are pretty low. Have you tried lowering fan speeds?

I have the Noctua NF-S12As (x3) as my case intake and have been really happy with them.  They move plenty of air and are really quiet while doing so.  I only ever need to run them at 40-50 percent duty cycle to keep things nice and cool (Fractal Design Define S).  No RGB, but the anti-vibration pads come in multiple colors on the Chromax line.


GAMING RIG -----> i7 4790k - GTX 1080 - MSI Z97 Gaming 5 - Fractal Design Define S - LOTS of Noctua cooling

FOLDING RIG ----> i7 2700K - GTX 1070 - GTX 1660 Ti - ASUS something or another motherboard - Antec 900
