I am going to buy a new Cooler for the CPU, but i was worried about the hot air, which will be spread into the case, with ne new cpu cooler. So i wanted to improve the Exhaust.

1x Intake and 1x Exhaust are connected to the PSU (Fansplitter should arrive today), and 1 intake is running on 8.4V (Temp dependent regulation)

Max rpm is 1200

The heat produced is dependent on the cpu and a different cooler won't change how much is produced. A better cooler moves the heat away from the cpu more quickly but the heat will still be dumped into the case. This is normal and shouldn't be a problem with the case fans you already have. In fact, warm air from the cooler is still better than no air at all. If your case fans aren't too noisy, there's no need to replace them.

Hi :)

What is the best 120mm Fan with a good  Price/Performance ratio? :) (i would prefere to spend less than 20€)

I DONT care about RGB

Howmany Fans can i connect to a Fansplitter with 6 slots, without reducing the max RPM? (Mobo is MSI b350M Pro VDH)

The stock fans are quiet, but the airflow is really bad. Quiet fans are prefered, but most important is the pressure and airflow

Hi @Harkulles

 

I have 2 of these fans in my system : https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/LED-Color/Fan-Size/AIR-SERIES-LED-CONFIG/p/CO-9050005-WW

And 2 of these https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Categories/Products/Fans/AIR-SERIES-LED-CONFIG/p/CO-9050001-WW

 

I think they're brilliant value for the price, and quiet too, with the SP ones having great pressure.
They aren't PWM controlled, but a decent fan controller will solve that problem.

They are €17.04 converted from GBP at the time of posting this.

 

I hope this helps

If pressure and airflow are the most important then something like a Delta FFB1212EHE would give you enough to dry your hair at the same time. You can control them so that they aren't running full tilt and can be quiet. They also will last forever. If you want something controlled by PWM then I'd go with a AFC1212D-PWM. Either way they can be controlled to be ran at quite RPMs and will cool really well at lower RPMs. They also will last forever.

The Corsiar SP Quiet series is pretty good, they are optimized for static pressure though (hence the SP) a 2 pack is 32 Euro.

https://be.pcpartpicker.com/product/dHXfrH/corsair-case-fan-co9050012ww

 

The BEST price to performance PWN fan will be the Arctic F12 for sure, they're actually decent quality.

https://be.pcpartpicker.com/product/cXg323/arctic-cooling-case-fan-afaco120p2gba01

 

And this Be Quiet Fan is more airflow optimized and is more premium but are within budget.

Newegg many times puts the Cooler Master 120mm standard fans in the 4 pack on sale for $7.99 shipped.

 

I buy a box every time.  Have 2 boxes unopened in my parts pile lol.  These are the best bang for buck fans I have ever purchased.

What rpm are you running the case fans at? That should be plenty for cooling already. Adding or swapping out the case fans isn't going to make a huge difference. If you want to lower cpu temps, a new cpu cooler would make a much bigger difference.
