What case fans should I get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So since it's summer it's been getting really hot and the pc has been running too loud. I don't know what case fans to get so I'm open to new suggestions but right now I'm mostly looking at the Arctic Ac f12 pmw rev.2 or Pure Wings 2.

Here's my build:

Cpu: R7 2700x (currently using the stock cooler but I'm buying an Arctic Freezer 34 Duo with the fans)

Gpu: Gtx 960 2gb(plan on upgrading to the new nvidia gpu when they'll launch

Ram: HyperX Fury 16gb 2666mhz

Psu: Thermaltake Litepower 650W

Case: Cougar Turret Mesh

And I currently have 3 Floston Aurora rgb fans which are kind of loud + the fan included with the case.

My question is should I get the Arctic F12 pmw fans or the pure wings 2 or are there other better alternatives.

If you don't care about rgb maybe noctua 120mm (don't know the model but you should get the idea)


Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

Well the Arctic F12 is 7$, the Pure Wings is 11$ and the Noctua Nf-a14 is 26$. I know they're the best on the market but I don't know if they're worth it when compared to the fans that I mentioned.

You could go with the Pure wings

I would get the Arctic p12 (not sure the diff between the f12)

Go for the Arctic P12s. You can get a 5 pack for $30 on Amazon. The F is for Flow, P for Pressure. I always recommend pressure based fans. Their airflow is usually the same or better in almost all real life use cases.

 

The Noctua redux line is good for cheaper Noctuas, they are the previous generation design and don't come with extras like normal Noctuas. Extras being a low noise adapter, extension cable, splitter cable, rubber corners pieces and those rubber anti vibration mounts I tend to tear on install. With the redux you get a fan and 4 metal fan screws. I have a few Noctua P12 redux's that work well. Still more than Arctic fans though. I was going to use Arctic's on my new GPU cooler but had some Noctuas sitting in a bin.
