Cooling Fans Help!

My System Config is in my signature.

Motherboard has only 2 spots for connecting Cooling Fans.

1. CPU - Occupied.
2. System - Occupied with a Cheap ass Noisy Fan.

Now There are no spots left to connect fan to mobo. VX450 still has plenty of open connectors but they are different that the Pins coming with Fans.

I can add a couple of more fans to this case so is there any solution?

And please suggest some low noise fans (Budget is no worry).

AFAIK, all case fans comes with a 3-pin to 4-pin molex connector for connecting with the SMPS directly. At least CoolerMaster ones come.

Confusingly Confused!
^ no they don't, coolermaster case fans value pack doesn't come with 3/2 pin to molex converter,maybe led fans comes with them but if you search at a descent computer shop you can get it.

Can you give me Links of the CM Fans that fit directly to Molex? Cooling is severely crippled on my machine as only 1 System Pull Fan is there is entire rig.

Umm isnt V6GT a CPU Cooler? I want Case Fans.

Any other suggestions than Noctua? They are good but It will be better if I can get a cheaper alternative. If they are not decent enough then I will buy Noctua

buy CM fans...R4's to be exact...dont go for the VALUE packs...they are named that for a reason...a single pack should be your choice...

Not Creating a separate thread for small query.

I have reset all the OC to default setts as the OC is not right now required for things I am running

I undervolted the CPU from 1.4 to 1.3 and Temps in Idle came down by 4 Deg to 39 & Full Load are stabilizing near 65. I think these are OK temp.

Only Concern is AMD CPU fan when in full swing getting a wee bit noisy for my taste.

Any alternatives? Requirement is it should be quiet and when I require OC it should be able to keep it cool for 3.8 to 4 GHz.

Also How far I can under volt this CPU for getting further temp drops? Will it help?

^^nope TX3 will be just waste of money when compared to hyper 212+ which is just 0.6K more.so tech wiz buy 212 and about undervolting lower the volt in installments see at which volt you will be able to run your system stable.i myself using the processor at 1.225 volt which is 0.175 volt less than the stock.at 1.4V my stock cooler can't keep this thing below 70C at all.
