Thin CPU Fan AM2
« on: August 01, 2008, 04:48:49 pm »
Hello, I'm thinking on buying this thin case for some of my MD's http://www.hipergroup.com/products.php?lv=4&cate=2&type=12&pid=128&action=Picture The problem is that it's so thin that 99.9999999% of the fans won't go in there -.- Does anyone know any CPU fan (AM2) thats pretty much 40mm high? The only one I found so far is the one from the same brand and it would cost me almost as much as the case would so yeh, if there is any alternative I'm listening. Google hasn't been for too much help with this :/

I'll also ask another Q whilst I'm here. Do fanless CPUs coolers/blocks work for a simple MD with an AMD sempron CPU? And if yes, are there any that are recommended? Those I see usually have the ability to add a stock fan to them so I don't get if the stock fan is a must or if it's just an option for those want.

Thanks

Hi Schmich, those cases don't have much space inside and you are limited in the fan you can use. As you have mentioned the Hiper fan is suitable, there is also this guy http://www.xcase.co.uk/p/329507/dynatron-model-model-a48g---athlon-64-x2-dual-core-5200.html But a silent 1U fan is kinda hard to find.
Don't think there is too much space for a fanless block in there either.
I ended up getting the Hiper fan.

Ah well guess I'll stop being a cheapass and buy one of them then =) The one you linked seems pretty cool although " Noise Level 54.4 dBA" as oppose to "20 - 23 dBA" on the Hiper one you have  ??? Afaik 54.4dB is quite noisy right?

Probably too late, but for future readers of this post the Silverstone NT07-AM2 would fit (36mm high).
