    Default Good Case Fans

    I am using an NZXT S340 case with two basic Thermaltake case fans (salvaged from previous Thermaltake case) as intakes in the front. The stock fans that came with the NZXT case are used as exhaust fans on the top and back sides. However none of these 4 fans are good and the temps get pretty high. The cpu goes over 60 degrees (i5 6600k with cooler master hyper 212x) and the gpu reaches nearly 80 degrees (sapphire nitro r9 390).

    So i want suggestions for good case fans that will improve the airflow and temps.

    If your CPU goes just over 60 under heavy load/gaming then I would say that the temps are absolutely safe. But if u still want to get new fans i'd recommend CM SickleFlow. I have 2 of these and they have been working great for over a year.

    What's your ambient temp on the gpu? If it's around 36-38, then ~80 degrees C seems alright for a 390 card. I doubt changing the fans will improve temps that much, probably 1-2 degrees but that's it.

    And I've also heard that AMD cards can withstand higher temperatures compared to Nvidia cards. So ur current cooling setup is fine.

    JetFlo blows truckloads of more air compared to sickleflow, and has higher static pressure. But they are quite noisy. In fact, their noise situation is kinda interesting. When I used one as intake, I could not sleep if they were running over 1400rpm. Moved them to back exhaust where the obstruction is much lower, and I was able to tolerate up to 1600rpm. Moved it to Megahalems CPU cooler and now I can't even hear them up to 2000rpm.
