    Default Large case fan help

    I have this IN WIN Dragon Rider case that I have been using for about a year now and for the most part I like it. What I have noticed though is that the stock 220mm fan on its side is actually pretty horrible. I wanted to get a replacement but most of the sites barely have any 220mm fans. There are a lot of 200mm and 230mm though so I was wondering if with a little bit of tweeking would they fit?

    This is the only 220mm fan I was able to find.. I've used Rosewill before, infact I have a few fans from then in a build.. great quality and they are pretty quiet..
    this one can push 110CFM at 600rpm which isn't bad at all.

    How do you figure its horrible? Most 200+ mm fans aren't very good... At least IMO

    The fan itself is not very powerful. The 230mm fan my friend has in his case blows mine out of the water and he has his plugged into his mobo while I have mine plugged directly into my power supply (which means it should be going 100% all the time). All the fans the case came with are pretty horrible compared to 3rd party fans so most of them have been replaced already.

    I would try to find the specs on that fan before you jump on a new one. 6 120mm fans would be better than any 200+ mm fans. Also if you could make a couple small brackets you could put a 200mm or 230mm fan in there if you wanted to.

    I would love to have 6 120mm on the side grill but unfortunately I am out of mobo fan slots and molex slots on my power supply. Also it's only a 650 watt psu so I am a little nervous trying to add any more fans since I have a gtx 680 that I just added.

    Buy a six channel fan controller, this way you can add the extra fans.
