    What 120mm LED Fan For Heatsink?

    Just bought a Alpenfohn Grob Clockner hsf off another forum for Shelleys PC which is having a little revamp with some secondhand parts. Trouble is, it comes with a standard boring black fan and we need some bloo led goodness! . Was having a look on the KPC's site as i need to order some braiding and heatshrink and was wondering if this fan would be up to the job?.

    As the colour scheme fits in perfectly with the rest of the setup.

    Depends what you're after, you could get a nice quiet LED fan, but not with PWM function, so no fan control. if that's an issue for you or not.

    Actually there's the Scythe Kama LED PWM fan http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/cust...cat=886&page=1
    That would tick all my boxes for a cpu cooler fan. (but I don't like a fixed fan on a cpu cooler)

    For normal LED fans
    I'd look at the Yate loons for a cheap option.

    Or a UV version? http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/cust...cat=886&page=1

    Enermax Appolish http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/cust...cat=886&page=1
    Not the cheapest of fan, but one of the most pretty LED fans, speed ti suto controlled by temp (no idea if that will be an issue.)

    Final one for note the coolermaster sickleflow http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/cust...cat=886&page=1
    Not the quietest but a nice trade off of noise vs air flow and a good static pressure rateing so should be good on a cooler.

    Thanks for the links mate, noise isn't too much of a worry as long as it doesn't sound like a hoover and i'm liking the look of that Sickleflow, should fit in nicely. Shame they don't do an 80mm version for the case fans...the only downside of working with an older case.

    That's what a rotary tool is for it've very easy to hack a few larger holes in cases to put in bigger fans.
