Suggestions On Fan Replacment

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone can give me suggestions on what fans I should replace the fans in my NZXT Guaridan 921 with. As far as I have read on the internet it came with stock fans and I am looking to put fans that will draw more air in and out of the case. I was looking at Thermaltake 120mm Sickleflow Fans. Also any suggestions about a better CPU cooler are welcome.

How well is the MaxOrb cooling your core 2??

 

It keeps the core 2 around 40-45 at idle and 50-60 under a full load. Room tempartures are 77-78 F.

I use the Cooler Master Sickle-flow fans, they look nice, move a lot of air, but can get a little noisy. They also don't like to be mounted horizontally.... But for vertical they work fine.

Those temps are at stock speeds on everything. SLI was enabled when I took those readings.

Also I bought this system in early 09. I'm thinking I should probably reapply some thermal paste. The dust covers that came with the case aren't the best and I hope to mount aftermarket dust covers on the two intake fans. I'm also considering just buying a Coolermaster HAF 932 from the reviews I've read about it.
