    Htpc 80mm fans and pentium 4 cpu cooler?

    Hi. i was looking to get this fan SWiF-801 80mm Case Fan but it has been discontinued and i was wondering what other similar fans their are that i can buy for a silvestone LC17 case im looking to order soon.

    i will stick in my old pentium 4 which also needs a new cooler as the stock one is far too loud and full of dust :rotfl:

    Any thoughts on both matters?

    i have one of these as well Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online - Scan.co.uk) can that be installed in the 3.5 drive bay on a silvestone LC17 case?

    I could use that to set the fans low while watching a movie and crank it up if i game on it.

    i know i should really just build a new htpc but money is tight at the moment and this will do for now:smashin:

    cheers

    A great 80mm fan, desprite its low price, is a Panaflo from Scan - http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/80mm-...Brushless-2Pin and it's very quiet if you run it at 7v. If you want to spend a bit more, Scythe Kama Flex fans are very good and are available at QuietPC.com but they are out of stock now. In the search bar type 'SA08' (the first bit of the model numbers) to see them - the 2000rpm version has great reviews so I assume the other two would be good also - the 2500rpm should move more air but be noisier, the 1500rpm should move less air but be quieter. Something like a Zalman RC56 would be useful for reducing noise (by undervolting) - http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/pro...ries/resistors.

    Re: Htpc 80mm fans and pentium 4 cpu cooler?

    The AKASA AK-FC-03 fits in a 5.23" bay not a 3.5" bay
    you want the AKASA AK-FC-06-BK for a 3.5" bay or the sliverstone FP33b
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/AKASA...2-USB-20-ports
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Silve...troller-2-3Pin
    Both also available in silver

    Is the P4 socket 775 or 478?

    The Scythe Shuriken is probably your best bet for a low height cooler and will fit ether 478 or 775

    Re: Htpc 80mm fans and pentium 4 cpu cooler?

    It's fine, if you were using a c2d you could probably get away with it being fanless esp with good case air flow
    But the old p4's run hot so I think fanless is out

    However the 100mm fan on the Shuriken is going to be much quieter.
    and it's a far lower profile
    http://www.frostytech.com/articlevie...id=2247&page=5

    Depends on what the max height of the case is.

    Looking at the silverstone website the case height is 170 mm, so that's 120mm fan based tower coolers out
    a 92mm fan based tower cooler should fit.
    If you can find one the normal Scythe Ninja "should" fit (150mm) although not with a 120mm fan on it, you'd have to drop down to a 92mm fan.

    yea the p4 do run hot indeed but the stock cooler is blooming loud and annoying.

    i have ordered the case along with 3 of those cheap fans recommended here plus the ultra quiet golf ball fans too and that Scythe Ninj as well.

    i will upgrade the core parts to a E5300/ ATI 4870 in the fture but for now this will do nicely

    The Shuriken is a very good/quiet cooler but it doesn't have the best thermal performance and could struggle with a hot P4.

    yea i heard its no better than the stock cooler. Good suggestions though cheers all. I relied on my ps3 for my HTPC needs but after seeing my mates HTPC a few weeks ago, there is no match for it againts a ps3!

    sick and tired of transcoding files just to make them play fine on a ps3

    The PS3 isn't exactly power efficient either.

    From what I hear (I don't own one) it uses in the area of 300 watts. A purpose-made HTPC could use less than 40 watts which is less than a seventh of the PS3's usage.
