Replacement H80i Fan

Hi,

I was looking for recommendations for replacing the fan on my h80i.

I only have one fan on it (as the radiator screw holes threaded/busted)which pulls air from the outside like this...

 

 

Case > Radiator > fan

 

It still cools things well but it is getting a little noisy.

Recently I bought x2 ML 120 Pro LED Red for the front of my case and they do a sterling job.

Would one of these be suitable for my radiator or can anyone recommend an adequate fan that is less noisy but just as good at pulling air?

 

Thanks.

Yes, any of the ML120's will work well. As far as fan placement, there are no specific push or pull fans, although on rare occasions some are unsuitable for pull because the blade actually protrudes from the frame. That does not seem to be an issue here. You will likely need to keep moderate speeds on the H80i fan in order to get enough air through the radiator when under load. 2400 rpm is loud no matter what, but you shouldn't need to run it that high.
