    I just purchased a Ultra 120 Extreme and I need help on what kind of fan I should get. Please recommend fans that are not too loud but can move a decent amount of air.

    Also how should i set up my hs?

    I have a 780i in an Antec 1200. Should i have it setup so its blowing out the back with the fan infront of the hs or behind? Or blowing up at the 200mm with the 120mm fan between the gpu's and the hs or above the hs?

    Thanks!

    Noctua

    Either way will work, clearance to the NB heat sink may make that decision for you though!

    Personally i bought 2 fans so i have them mounted on both sides of the hs however in terms of temperature mounting it on the front and blowing through it had the greatest effect on temperature. I'm using a heavy sythe fan and it seems to work great. (the key is to look for a lot of pressure as opposed to cfm)

    S-Flex SFF21E or SFF21F. They push a good amount of airflow.

    If you want performance with low noise, Noctua is the way to go.

    There are better fans but they make more noise.

    Nothing beats this, I bough this for fun, and this thing is crazy, I touched I with my middle finger knuckle and it grazed it. This thing I loud and whines... But the coooling, man the cooling is sick
