    what cooler are you using?

    what fan are you using?

    which fan will you be getting? im assuming a delta?

    you would more than likely (like 95%) see a reduction in temps, mostly on LOAD

    Agreed. That thing will sound like a jet engine running. I had one similar to your old one, but it moved about 120cfm, and I kept it in for about a day before I couldn't stand the noise. 200cfm is a ton of air, but I'd say if you don't mind the noise, you'll probably see a drop in temps.

    +1. I was gonna say about the noise. 220CFM :eek: Where did you find a 120mm fan that can shift that amount of air???
    My 120mm hiper fans shift 50CFM @ 19db. Like snake said that thing is going to sound like a jet engine!!!

    I haven't looked at the specs on that fan, but chances are the motherboard will not support that fan. Usually a fan that pushes that much air draws too much current for the motherboard to handle.

    For a separate fan controller, you should look into something like a Zalman ZM-MFC1 or a Sunbeam Rheobus.

    so then instead of hooking it up to the mobo i should hook it up to a four pin connector?


    BTW:
    the current is 2.45 amps
    Wattage: 29.40

    Specifications: 120x120x38mm, 220.01 CFM @ 4600 RPM, 65.0 dBA, 29.40 watts, 2.45 amps, Maximum Air Pressure 26.44 mm H²O, 12v DC, 3 or 3+4 pin Molex header connector(s).

    I'd say 30W @ 2.45 A will be too much for mobo. but I might be wrong. Spose it depends on the mobo.

    Couldnt it blow the fan controller?

    The Sunbeam Rheobus Extreme is rated at 30W per channel. Or a direct connect to the PSU, but that will be awful.

    Think you will fry the controller with that fan.

    EDIT:Any thing over 100CFM is risky.

    either of the sunbeams will handle it, or you could wire it up @ 7v/10v or hook straight to the PSU 12v ;)

    I had bought a Zalman ZM-MFC2 controller along with my new fans (actually bought 2 of these 120 fans), but the POS would not run the fans anywhere below 2000 rpm, which was still considerably louder than I had hoped for. Then the stupid temperature sensors assisted is screwing up my new mobo, which thankfully was able to be RMA'd. Well that is mainly me bitching about the conroller, but for the money I paid for it, I expected a miracle, when all I got was junk that is now a $70 paper weight. I ended up getting a pair of Scythe S-FLEX 1600 rpm fans, which are excellent!

    think my psu's 12v 4pin molex connectors will support 30watts.

    that style of controller is NOT suited for high power fans, i tried my hardcano12 with my old sunons and 1 of my panaflo's :laugh::laugh::laugh: thats why ive now got myself a sunbeam rheo ;) and the hardcano12 is for temps and baby fans

    I realized my mistake a little too late:eek:. It was some sweet looking *bling, but that was all it had going for it. I mainly got it for temperature monitoring first, and fan control second. I ended up using it for a short while for fans only, until it shorted out the board that is:ohwell:. Learned my lesson :toast:
