Hey guys, recently built a new machine with an
AOpen AK86-L
AMD 64 3400+
1 gig pc3200
280 gig hd
DVD+-RW
Aspire Black X-Dreamer
Asus GeForce 5700

I got some normal heatsink fan and (2) 80 mm fans that came with the case and bought a 120mm casefan for the back. I only have the heatsink and (1) 80mm fan on the side as well as the 120mm fan on the back and the processer is at around 41 degrees C and the case can climb up to about 94 F inside. I was wondering if anyone knew of any good fans- heatsink or case fans, more of the case fan because the heatsink isnt that bad, for any good way to quiet this thing down whether its a new fan or anything, I was thinking about a Fan Speed Card and such but i wanted to know of any other ways or products you guys can recommend...Thanks in advance :tazz:!

Hi soxrok,

Here is the fan controller I use alot it will work wonders on the noise and has a good price and looks good to.

papst makes some of the best/quietest fans I have seen but the price, oowch, and I doubt you would need such exspensive ones if you get a controller.

heres another product I use I don't install it in every system rather have it around and stick its probe in tempary when I think I have a system that misreading temps witch is often.

The 41c cpu temp is good for stock cooling and the 94F or 34c for the case temp ain't bad either so I don't think you need anymore fans.

I would agree with doby. Don't go fan overboard unless your doing some serious overclocking.
