    hi all, i bought an antec super lan boy which has been great but this is the first summer my 939 system has seen and as i am in the attic its all getting very warm, cpu internal temps up to 50oC and external CPU (surface ?) temperatures hitting 36oC (this is all according to systool which i hope is accurate)

    so i think the main problems the 120mm fans on the lanboy, they are low noise fans with a reasonably low rpm and i want to replace them.

    is there such a thing as a quiet, high rpm 120mm fan. and if so, what are they called so i know what to look for,

    thanks all.

    IMO you can't got wrong with the AKASA Ultra Quiet case fans :)

    wonderfully quiet and they push out a whopping 45(ish) CFM and only 18db

    the akasa fans are really good especially if you put them on a fan controller.

    The Panaflo range of fans are very good. The ones to look for are L1's, M1's or H1's (low, medium and high respectively)

    I have the M1's and can't hear them at 7v on a fan controller whilst still pushing a good amount of air. When gaming i turn them right up and they do push a lot of air but i don't notice it because i turn my speakers up high or use my headphones.

    Can't go wrong with Panaflo's ;)
