    Default Antec P183 Fans

    I have plans to have the following built. The Antec P183 comes with 2 fans and I am wondering what additional fans I should get to be cool, computer not me. Also, How can I set this up so as to control fans with software? I want them controllable from the temps in the case.
    Thoughts: Cool, Quiet, Clean, GOOD Monitor as some eye problems MidTower as it will sit on Desk.

    Why not go with a fan controller? The 3-pin motherboard headers won't let you control the speed, etc in a stock setup.

    As for fans, are you looking for high airflow, very low noise, shiny? Budget?

    I went with the Antec because it is listed as very quiet, so high airflow and low noise.
    I know nothing about a fan controller, so please educate me.

    Well as far as additional fans go, it sorta depends on how picky you are and what is your budget. Noctua fans are probably one of the best in terms of quality and low noise but they are very expensive. I hear Sharkoon makes a couple good ones that are more affordable.

    Here's a decent article to look at:
    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/coo...est-case-fan/1


    As for fan controllers, they are primarily a hardware solution that generally install into a 3.5" or 5.25" bay. Some are simple, some are fancy, but they all allow you to control your fan speeds in your case.

    Here's a little mini roundup:
    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/coo...llers-tested/1

    We reviewed the NZXT Sentry 2, and while it is a fancy one, it is excellent:

    Those should get you started, ask if any questions!

    Thanks for all the information. For cool and quiet would you suggest changing the Antec fans for the Scythe S-Flex SFF21E 1200rpm * fans or only if it is decided additional fans are needed. They rated high in the article you referenced. The NZXT looks very nice, but I am probably getting a little paranoid about heat.

    I would suggest trying the stock setup/fans first and see if they are suitable. If not, then consider the Scythe. No need to rush out to buy before knowing what you're dealing with first
