    aNTEC p180 uSERS

    Bloody caps lock...

    Anyways, the 3 fans that the system comes with are clogging up, they now only work on the highest setting, any of the other just mean the fans dont spin up..
    So, what are the best fans to get for these things, I want 4 as I'm also wanting to put one in the front to keep my drives cool as I have 4 in the bottom bay and 2 in the top and he top ones get abit toasty as theres no air movement over them.
    Dont want anthing massively loud but more interested in them lasting a bit longer than the ones that came with the case...

    I can recommend these mate - nice and quiet, and virtually silent if used at 7v...that seller also sells the 7v resistors as well

    I really would recommend these. They're less than a quid each and fairly decent at 7V (just need a small flathead screwdriver).

    These will probably last a year or two.

    Unless you want to pay a premium to go for the "luxary" of silent, cheap fan is not a problem at all.

    sometimes theres an in-line switch which limits the voltage.
    else just use a flat-head screw-driver to pop the wires out of the molex and swap the black and red leads round

    If you want 7V you put the Red wire on the fan cable to run to the Yellow on a molex, and the black on the fan to the red on the molex connector-> giving 12V -5V = 7V potential.

    For 5V you run the Red on the fan cable to Red on a molex, then black to black, giving 5V - 0V = 5V.

    Can't recommend resistors, they just dissipate heat into your case and waste energy.

    Either that or hook them to your motherboard fan connectors and see if they have fan control - much easier and efficient.
