Aquagate fan replacement

Recommended Posts

The dimensions of AQ's stock fan is 80x80x25mm. The fan you want is 80x80x38mm.

Unless there is that extra 13mm of clearance in there (I have never seen the inside of the AQ), you are out of luck.

cfm varies from fan to fan, its the power consumption, for some reason cm considers enterprise fan manufacturers even the dedicated high output ones are classed as competitors so we can only reccomened cm prdocuts (it is the cm forum afterall) but i woulndt have got the aquagate full stop its crap imo

The Tronado is a power eatter. I don't think the Aquagate will be able to handle this kind of fan. If you just want to improve the air flow, you might want to add a 60mm fan in the rear by using the 4 pin molex connector. If you install the Aquagate internally, this will also help you to reduce the noise by turn down the main fan level setting lower. :wink:
