Best Fan for HR-03 GTX
 
Hello im purchasing a HR-03 for my GTX :D

Im in the market for a fan. Something I know **** all about :headexplode:

I have to get it off this website though www.ebuyer.com

here a few that I have picked out.

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/79894

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/54150

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/82246

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/54151

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/54151


OR for the same price and in fact a bit less I can get 4x120mm fans (generic name- Antler)

OR i can purchase a no name 120mm fan for 2.

Any ideas


cheers. Much appreciated. :captnkill:

Depends if you want better cooling or more silence? .... for better cooling you will need a fan with a higher CFM, if it silence your after the you need lower CFM .... i have a 92mm Vantec Thermoflow with a 58.5 CFM .... its not that loud and keeps my card at 48c - 50c idle & 65c max load! .....

If it was me i wouldent choose any of those fans! .... i got my fan from the below shop!

Not knocking ebuyer, i use the store & forums alot(bought most of my system parts from there)and its one of the best(lowest priced)on the net but they dont have the best selection of fans.

after buying the HR-03, Zalman 9700, P182 for a nice quiet pc, I dont think that the delta is the fan for me.


What ever floats your boat though ;)

I have just purchased the HR-03 plus with the Zalman ZM-F2 92mm Fan.

I plugged the fan into the Aux header below the 1st PCI-e slot as the connection is 3 pin. I can access the fan from the bios and was wandering at what speed % should i have this fan set to ?

I haven't overclocked the GPU yet but was hoping to get around 600/1000.

As a guideline, what idle and load temp should i be looking at with this sort of overclock?

How would x2 80mm fans be modded on? ... ive had a 120mm fan on mine but it didnt make a difference so i put my 92mm back on.
