Chassis Fan Question

Hi P
 Share

Go to solution Solved by Fasauceome,

I recommend 200mm since it will produce less noise and the difference in temps will be negligible.

To use as Top Exhaust, is there a noticeable difference between:

 

- 1x 200mm

- 2x 140mm

 

Would the 140mm option be far better or nearly the same as 200mm in that placement?

 

Thank you

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Out of curiousity, what case allows you to have the options of a single 200mm or dual 140mm?

It's the H500 from CoolerMaster

The H500 doesn't support a 200mm top exhaust, only the front which can support 2x 200mm. The top takes 2x 140mm or 3x 120mm, not a 200mm.

 

In any case, 2x 140mm is better for the top.

@seoz Do only PWM fans can be set to exhaust?

 

Are non-PWM are intake only?

Non-PWM are made for any setup, the only difference between PWM and non-PWM is that you cannot set the speed on non-PWM.

 

Your exhaust can be either and it will be fine.

All fans have a side for intake and a side for exhaust. PWM and DC are different ways to power a fan which has nothing to do with intake / exhaust. PWM modulates voltage in 12v pulses to power a fan and regulate RPM whereas DC uses variable voltage for a similar result. The benefit to PWM is that it can mitigate the problem of not having enough startup voltage and allow for lower RPM but can also introduce a ticking noise due to the nature of how power is delivered.

 

What are your specs? The stock H500 fans should be plenty of cooling for most system configurations.

I haven't bought anything yet, but was thinking on using the H500 with a 200mm at the top so I don't have to buy a splitter (because I would run out of connectors)

 

@seoz Why can't I put a 200mm as a top exhaust on the CoolerMaster H500? the website says top 200mm is supported :(

What website? There is no physical way a Cooler Master H500 supports a 200mm up top, I guarantee you it's only the fronts.

There are holes at the top for a 200mm fan.

Did you mean moving the front 200mm to the top or adding another one? You could just leave the top mounts empty instead.

Adding, it's just 20 - 25 bucks I think so I might aswell :D
