    Default How many fans do you have?

    Horray for a new thread.

    I have 5 case fans and 1 for the CPU.

    My computer is louder than my refrigerator. I can hear it through my wall.

    One which computer?

    Main machine right now has four and will have five. I have a 92mm Panaflo M1A for the CPU, a 120mm Yate Loon top exhaust fan, and two 80mm Panaflo L1As for exterior exhaust. I'm going to get something for either the front or side (for the video card). I'm not counting fans on the video card, PSU, chipset, etc. My computer is almost completely silent. If I had a fan controller or different CPU fan, it would be silent.

    My old machine had nine 80mm case fans and a single CPU fan. The CPU fan was a Thermaltake Volcano 12, and I couldn't even hear the other fans over it while it was turned up.

    I have 10 fans, most of them lower CFM to keep them quiet. I use a fan controller on the loud ones. I have one 120MM intake/one 120MM exhaust, 120MM fan over the CPU/80MM intakes on each side, 2 80MM fans on a Tweakmonster bracket over my video card, 2 60MM fans over my ram and 2 more 80 MM fans over my moffests/heatsinks on the motherboard (since I run with the 5V memory jumper on all the time).



    Not loud at all, I can only hear it when I am sitting in front of it. When I am gaming, I just crank up the sound and I cannot hear anything else anyways.

    Wow, 10 fans you say??? That puts my stocker to shame. 1 80mm for psu and 1 92mm intake with shroud for cpu. I actually kind of feel bad now. Besides, my board has very few 3 pin connectors for new fans. Oh well, it's a dell.

    I have 4, soon to be 5 as well.

    I have 2 on the side for intake, 2 on the back for exhaust.
    Not including Videocard, CPU, PSU, NB fans.

    I'm going to cut a whole in the top for another one soon.

    It's kinda loud though, but I don't have any fan controllers or sound dampeners either. I'm not bothered too much though, it's not that bad when I have my headphones on with the sound up, then I can't even hear it.

    Too many right now (too loud by far), but when I finish up a minor case mod I'll have 3x 120mm fans. One for an intake a two on the large radiator for the water cooling system. Will then be able to get rid of the loud VGA fan also.

    Yeah, I am going to water so my fan count will drop dramatically very soon. I am going to run a 120MM intake and one 120MM exhaust and I will still need the dual 60MM fans on my ram. The two 120MM fans are Vantec Stealth's and the dual 60MM's are only 22CFM so it will be nearly silent. I am also changing my video card and will be running dual 6800GS's with DangerDen Maze4 blocks and a TDX block on the CPU. The rest of my water setup is gonna be external in a case I extensively modified with an Eheim 1250 pump and a dual 120MM heatercore radiator. Those fans may be noisy, but I pla on putting a fan controller on them so I can turn them down when needed. Hoping for much less noise and won't know for sure until it is all rigged up. I am sure the PC will be quieter, but I think the watercooling unit may make up for it.
