    Re: QOTW: How many fans are inside your PC?

    Including the one in the PSU then 8 of them, 2 of them on the GFX card which are air cooled ATM
    From now on i am only dealing in 140 mm fans or larger, new project have four 140 mm intake fans, and thats probably going to be it.
    To make it easy for myself, i have put all 4 into one large quad unit.



    This mean with the planned RPM and the performance of these fans, the volume of air in my living room will be pushed thru my PC case 4 times every hour.
    And i am not running these suckers at full tilt, if i did it would be 40& more air / hour ( assuming RPM / volume of air moved scale 1:1,,,,, which i know it dont )

    Re: QOTW: How many fans are inside your PC?

    I was quite surprised when I counted them...didn't realise i had so many, for what is a bog-standard setup.

    3x 140mm front
    2x 140mm Top extraction
    1x 120mm CPU
    2x 90(?)mm GPU
    1x 120mm rear extraction.

    So NINE fans...ffs Having said that it's pretty quiet.....

    My rear exhaust fan is mounted on the outside... allows more room for mounting the pump/res combo that way.

    I'm also increasing my count to 12, since we seem to be including the PSU fan, now.

    Re: QOTW: How many fans are inside your PC?

    HTPC:
    1x thin 120mm CPU cooler
    2x 120mm exhaust
    That's it, as the PSU is a 400W fanless model.

    Current Gaming rig:
    2x 120mm intake
    1x PSU
    1x 120mm CPU cooler
    2x 120mm exhaust, 1x 200mm exhaust
    There'll be at least another 2 when I replace the long gone GPU

    New build (ordering to start next week):
    1x 200mm intake
    2x Radiator fans (120mm)
    1x 120mm exhaust
    1x PSU
    And another 2 when GPU prices become sensible again.
