    92mm fan for Thermalright HR-03 R600

    I have a 2900XT with the stock cooler(which sounds like a leaf blower at the merest hint of a game).

    I am going to replace the stock cooler with the HR-03 R600 heatsink.

    What I want to know is what is the quietest/best fan for this(looking for high airflow but low noise).

    I've looked at a Nocta NF-B9
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=838523

    It says it's a case fan but I assume you can use it for a VGA card.

    Is this a good fan? Is there a better one?
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    Be aware the HR03 is enormous with a fan.

    I used an Akasa Amber 92mm on mine it was very quiet (couldn't hear it) and will be a sight cheaper than the noctua.

    Re: 92mm fan for Thermalright HR-03 R600

    you should be able to fit a 120mm fan with the default clips, I could do it with my regular HR-03, I've seen it done on the GT and the Plus models too.

    Before I found this out I used an Akasa Amber 92mm fan, was alright slightly audible for an ok amount of air. Doesn't beat any 120mm low rpm fan though, I had a no-name Ebuyer fan on 5V, brilliant.

    As mentioned it is huge slot eater. Heatsink alone will eat about 2.5 slots, add a fan and its 3.5 slots, so basically upto 4 slots with room for the fan to breath.

    You could use the rear mount method, it'll take about 2 slots on the rear side inc fan.

    Xsilence 92mm fan 19Db @ 12v and 36 cfm. Seems reasonable. They also have a 120mm version as well.
