Antec Solo, quiet 92mm or can I make a 120 work?

Post by sprtfan » Wed Jun 03, 2009 2:34 pm

I had a Coolermaster 690 but needed it for my WHS. I'm using an Antec Solo now and really like the case but it dosen't cool nearly as well. I have a Yate Loon 120mm blowing air out the back but want to blow some air in on the HDD. The case has room for 2 92mm fans but I didn't know what to get. I also have several good 120mm fans I'd rather use but I do not know if there would be room for one of them and an adapter in the front of the case? Any suggestions for a 92mm fan or ideas on if the 120mm will fit? Thanks

Get 2 x Nexus RealSilent 92mm fans and you'll be good to go!

I currently tend to not use intake fans for just a single HDD. Just put it right in the opening.

I modded my Antec Solo serving NAS duty to accept two Scythe 100mm fans. If you're handy and really want an intake, you could block off one of the fan areas and mod in a 100mm in the other. You did already snip out the built-in fan guards in the intake and exhause areas, right?


In what way is it running hot? Got some hot GPU action going? Maybe you need a better cpu heatsink instead of intake fans?

Hope this helps,

I have two of the Nexus 92 mm fans in mine. I'm very happy with them, both for temp and noise.

Two Fanders if you're able to get them. Nexus fans are also a good choice as far as I know.

BTW a new revision of Fander fans has been announced a few months ago. Maybe their availability outside Poland will be better ;)
