Hey I am buying a new Heatsink/Fan for my CPU. The CPU is a AMD Athlon 3000+ venice and I am gonna for a good overclock. I am going for this HS/Fan:

http://jab-tech.com/Scythe-Ninja-Plus-6 ... -3281.html

Anyways. I also have read about some overclocking and noticed that I should probably get some better case cooling on this Aspire Navigator Case. It has 2 puny 80mm fans one top and one back. Of course it has a PSU fan but I still would like to 120mmfans. I want one for the back and one for the front to increae airflow. Anyways, anyone got anyideas of what are some good fans or tricks to decrease temps on both the cpu and overall system.

I was looking at your HS/F choice and came across this review:

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cooler ... 120_8.html

Thought you might be interested in the results. The Tuniq T-120 is nice but its more expensive and larger then the cooler your looking at. Found it for sale here:

7 degrees is a BIG difference on air. :wink:

I dont think theres a real big difference between 120mm fans. Most should run about the same.

CFM is important.. Heres a 78CFM "shiny" one.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811999128 but its loud (as far as 120mm ones go..)

or just pick one that suits your style, noise ratio, and budget..

Those look good but I was also wanting a fan that is silent and no led lighting.

GeF, check out Nexus fans. I use them on all my builds because I've found they produce the least noise while still performing.

That 120 fan looks nice but I am kind of iffy on the price. I don't want to spend more than $10 per fan unless the temps will be fenominal. Plus my room stays at about 87 F so.

with those ambient temps it will be hard to get a fan to do the job for under that price and be quiet i would not recommend a 35cfm fan i would go with something with more air flow this fan meets your price but will not be quiet it is rated at 90 cfm 44.5 db not sure what the test methods they used to determine the sound level but you might get the sound down by using sound dampening technique like rubber washers or a silicone gasket like antec sells.

It looks nice can you tell me where to find some good sound depletion techniques and where I can get rubber washers and such.

alot of that stuff can probably be bought at a hardware store for a lot less. same goes with rubber washers and such.
