Hello

Presently own following system:
CPU: Phenom II X4 955 BE
Coolermaster GeminIIS + CM 12Cm Cooler
Mb: Asus mATX
VGA: HIS IceQ 5750 1 Gb
HDD: 2 x 500 Gb WD HDD (Caviar Green & Black)
RAM: 4Gb Kingston DDR3
PSU: Corsair TX650
Case Lian Li V350

Following can be upgraded:
- 2 x 12 cm Intake Fans(presently using Lian Li V350 supplied ones) - these are actually not so bad.
- 8 cm outtake fan (presently using Noctua 8cm fan) - also 9 cm fan can be installed - presenlty 2 HDDs are on 41-43 Deg after 2-3 Hours of Gaming :(
- 12 cm Cooler Master Fan on CPU - this is way too loud even on 60% of max RPMs (1800 RPMs are on 100%)

I need the following advise - to which Fans I can upgrade all below listed ones to receive more quiter and more performance system.
For CPU Fan I'm even ready to use 14 CM Fan on the soft mouting brackets to receive adequate performance

thanks in advance for help...

Free things which work well enough for you:

- I've found that the CPU fan sucking up from the heat sink is noticeably quieter with a less annoying noise character than with the fan blasting turbulent air at the heat sink.
- You may not need the drive cage fan at all as the air from the 2 from fans has to exit where it can.

Try two Nexus fans. I have the same case and I found them to be quieter than the stock fans.

thanks for the advise guys !

want to get rid of the Drive cage - but I have 2 HHDs + also the IR Control Module in the DVD cage, so one slot is already busy :(

Can you pls be more specific on Nexus Fans - which models do you use and where exactly - on CPU or Intake or else ?

These are the nexus fans I was referring to:

I used the fans for the two dual case intake fans. But there is no reason not to use them on the CPU cooler.

What CPU cooler are you using? If it is stock, take a look at this:

Will renew this topic... :P

Lookin for and advise - Fan on my HIS IceQ 5750 has issues - stops working randomly inside the case. Therefore card overheats and PC freezes.

So I'm looking for a replacement aftermarket VGA cooler considering:
- hot air must be exhaused from case, otherwise temperatures on all comonents - HDDs, VGA, CPU will raise dramatically.
- low clearance for the cooler size due to a case limitations (height is limited by the height of the standard vga pcb size + 1cm in MAXIMUM) - i.e. 8-9 cm max fan allowed.

any reccomendations ?

thanks in advance
