I have a MSI gaming 7 MOBO i7 4790k H80i GT water Cooler  GTX 970 850 w pSU. I am looking to upgrade a sidevent case fan. Would this fan be ok to put in  the case or does it draw to much voltage and would be hard on the PSU and MOBO. I need a 3 pin fan and I dont want a PWM fan or 1 that plugs in to the Molex.  Delta AFB1212VHE  Here is a link to the spec sheet  http://partner.delta-corp.com/Products/FanUploads/Specification/AFB1212VHE-F00.pdf   I  was told that this fan would draw to much power for a 3 pin MOBO connecter and could harm the MOBO. Ideas or suggestions?

 

 

Thanks.

That fan should work fine. I've never heard of a fan drawing to much power from the mobo.

if its a 4 pin, and the motherboard only has 3, then I would not hook it to the board, but otherwise, I see no issues offhand. If your worried about it, newegg has a plethora of other fans that will work just as good.

The fan is a 3 pin that will plug in to the motherboard.  http://noctua.at/en/catalog/product/view/id/91/s/nf-a14-industrialppc-3000-pwm/category/14/ I got one of these plugged in. I want a fan that has tons of CFM and Static Pressure.

I recommend the Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Case Fan. So long as you don't mind the color these are high quality high airflow low noise fans.

I'll second the motion on Noctua fans...probably some of, if not the best fans you can get IMHO.

Yeah, it should be fine.  Just realize that with "tons of CFM and static pressure" also comes tons of noise...

Delta fans are industrial fan, and they are ball bearing fan and can last forever ...

 

If the fan come with 4 pin then you should not convert it to 3 pin.

 

p/s just my 2 cents.

Actually, the longest lasting bearings are magnetic (the hub doesn't touch anything, so there is no friction)...but they are RPM limited (i.e. don't move a lot of air).  Next would be Fluid Dynamic Bearings (FDB).  They are essentially a type of sleeve bearing, but with some sort of lubricating fluid or oil that circulates.  They are also very quiet.  Third would be ball bearings in terms of longevity, but they are noisier.  Plain sleeve types are the cheapest and lowest bearing life, but they are quiet.
