    Default 120mm Case Fan Replacement Help for Antec 900

    I want to replace the 120mm Tricool Fans in my Antec 900 case so i can add a Scythe or Lamptron Fan Controller. My question is what are the best brands and quality. I still want blue LED fans.

    These are the ones i'm looking at Yate Loons and Coolermaster.

    YATE LOON 120mm Case Fan - D12SH-124B

    CoolerMaster Fan R4-L2R-20AC-GP


    Please help with any ideas

    Welcome to Pure Overclock.
    Why can't you use your current fans with a controller?

    The Tricool fans have a 3 speed switch control witch controls the rpms. So i need to get fans that have 3-pin motherboard connector so the rpms read out on the fan controller.

    Cut the switch off and join the wires together

    What you do is leave the speed switch alone (on high) remove the molex if the fan controller does not have that option and fit normal fan header plug if needed. Some fan controllers come with extension cables which you can use to just join to the existing fan plug wiring ...a little heatshrink works wonders on the joints
