Heatsink 60mm fan to 80mm
« on: August 20, 2001, 11:28:00 PM »

Ok, I know there are adapters out there that allow you to put an 80mm fan in place of the norm 60mm fan on a heatsink.  I currently have a Delta 38cfm and that bad boy is too loud for me.  I want to swap it out with a Panaflo 80mm.  So, my question is this: where can I find those adapters and buy 'em??!?

Yeah, I heard that most adaptors have a small (<60mm) hole on the hs side. Causing your 80mm to actually provide less cfm then your 60mm fan. I am sure there is a good adaptor out there, just don't buy the 1st one ya see.

i am ordered the funnel from 1coolpc btw to put on the Vantec that I won from GIDEON TECH!!!!!!  i am putting a 80mm sunon that is about the same cfm as the delta but at around 33dba. my reasoning is if the 37.6 cfm from the delta will go through a 60mm x60mm space then 39cfm should be able to go through the same space. if it doesnt work that well then ill put a ys tech on it and use the funnel on one of my side intake fans to direct air better

let me know how that works. I love the cfm of the 7k rpm delta but don't really like the noise that baby puts out.

I am actually building a lil sound box for my new system. Not sure how it will work (heat vs noise) but I have ideas flying around in my head.

antacus is the noise on those fans from wind or mechanical? if the noise is from wind what if you mounted them about 1/2 -> 3/4 inch above the heatsink using spacers and longer screws. i guess you could test this by holding the fan up with no obstructions and see if it is quiter that way?

Thanks for all the replies.  I will give it a shot and be wary of the adapters that I come across.  Would you recomend something else to replace the Delta noisy ass fan?  Like an orb or something?  I want to move about the same amount of air.  Currently the fan sits on a T-bird 900 not overclocked and is normally about 40 degrees.  I had lots of crashing issues with my old heatsink (cuz it sucked and therefore the cpu was running at 55 degrees (ouch)).  So, I don't want to loose cooling performance, just want something quieter : )
