    Hey all.

    I'm looking for a couple of good 80mm fans. Those are the only ones I can fit into my system...

    I have been looking at the Noctua NF-R8, which seems to be pretty awesome. But they are kinda expensive.. Any other solid fans out there?

    Never had any problems with Zalman 80mm fans... they make a quite nice sswoooosh sound.
    Frick says thanks.

    Is it impossible to cut out the holes and mount either a 92 or 120mm fan in there? Much better airflow to noise ratio. If not, I don't know if silverstone makes 80mm fans but their high speed 92 and 120's are solid.

    Not really sure. It's very cramped the way it is. At the moment I'm thinking about buying a cheap midi tower. My HDD is idling at 45 C. :eek: Too much too much.

    Thanks for the input though. :)
