Looks like 92mm is the biggest fan the case can accept or an 80mm. Airflow in cases like this is not best but oem cases like this have good solid steel contruction.

You cannot go wrong with arctic fans, I use them personally the regular F8 80mm or F9 92mm pst fans on my cases. Very good fan for its price especially the ones in packs of 5 that I got. Get the pack of 5 I think you can get a pack for 5 for like $23. I do prefer noctua but their expensive when I can get 5 arctic fans for thr price of one noctua.


Beyond that you can mod your case by drilling the a hole at the side to attach 120mm for your cpu or graphic card. Drill a round hole and use a fan grill to attach it too.

Something funny that I have noticed with Noctua vs Arctic. I am only talking about the Redux line of 140MMs vs the F14s. I could not believe it but the Arctic fans are more powerful and quieter. When it comes to the brown regular Noctua though there is no comparison as they are super quiet (could be the max of 1100 RPM).

looks like 80mm side intake and a hybrid 80/92mm rear exhaust
pretty bad for airflow no matter what you do, really.
Yeah I think the rear of case cannot be modified for a 120mm because the case appears too narrow. Removing the unused PCI slot covers would add a passive air vent below the graphics card. A side panel intake could be added. One way to do this is to add a 180 or 200mm giant fan intake to the side panel, depending on space of course: you'd want to measure first. Another side intake option is to run a 140x2 or 120x3 rad grill and run 3x120mm or 2x140 fans side panel intake right behind the 5.25/3.5 bays and in front of the motherboard. Measure first always.

With cases like that, I'd typically cut out the rear fan grill and replace it with these:

Noctua NF-B9 redux-1600 PWM

ARCTIC F9 Pro PWM PST


for the moment i'm seeing these 2 fans (rear). tell me if they are good and recommended. if there are other fans, write me the models, please. on the side at the moment I remain as is and I see how it goes. maybe later I could buy another fan maybe from 120-140mm. at that point to insert it I should cut the metal panel and remove the black plastic / filter tube inside the case.

I am currently considering these two fan models with temperature control TC to be installed in the back. the pwm doesn't interest me at the moment

F9 TC

F9 PRO TC
