Frontal fans for Silencio 452

Recommended Posts

Hi to all, i'm Filippo and i'm italian and this is my first CM case, i've bought a Silencio 452 for my new pc and i'm very satisfied of it; i have an AMD FX8320 (cooled by a Zalman CNPS10X Optima) on an ASUS M5A97 EVO R2 mobo, 8gigs of DDR3, a fantastic MSI R9 280 , a Samsung 840Evo 120gb SSD and a couple of hdd (1Tb WD Green + an old 250Gb).

My problem is the air intake fan, the Silencio has a good 800rpm 120mm CM fan, but for the AMD 280 is too small, i want to add maybe another 120mm (a Scythe Glidestream) or better a 140mm (same), but i'm looking at the holes in the front of the Silencio and i'm quite in doubt... is there enough space to mount a 140mm fan here ? Look at the holes:

I don't think that i can fit a 140mm (or even a 120mm) here...

Can you please give me some advice about my problem ? I don't want to order something that than i've to return back..
 
PS. sorry for my "spaghetti-english"  :)

It looks like another 120 can fit, but 140 doesn't seem likely. You could at least test if another 120 can fit by temporarily uninstalling your rear fan and aligning it there, perhaps (unless you're specifically talking about an oversized 120 mm fan)

Strange. On the official website it says it should fit 140 mm fans on the front.

 

  • Front:120/140mm fan x 2 (one 120mm fan installed, 800 RPM, 15 dBA)

I've bought a Noctua 140mm PWM 1500RPM and it fits very well, great airflow, low noise (up to 60% of speed, then it becomes quite udible...)
