    Hi,

    I am going to fit an 80mm fan in the spare blow hole @ the bottom of my HTPC case (silverstone LC-03) under HDD's. What 80mm fan would give best noise/performance ratio?

    Want to keep noise levels down as the whole thing will be virtually passive cooled. Just want a fan to take the heat from the drives straight out of the case instead of blowing across the whole system.

    Cheers

    David

    You will need to have the fan running at 5v/7v to get the best noise levels out of it.

    The SilenX fans are good at 80mm, as are the zalmans (the zalman fans come with a volt modding adapter so its nice and easy)

    No worries, I love the packaging on the Zalman fans, in the cardboard boxes.

    Just think its how it should be done, none of the plastic to cut yourself on!
