20mm wide 80x80 Case fans?

Hi all,

I've ran into a clearance problem with my build (list here: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Shiminay/saved/#view=6mr4nQ).

The Arctic 80mm fans at the back are touching off the Be Quiet cpu cooler, so I can either replace that (not ideal) or find fans that are less than 25mm wide. I'm not having a lot of luck in finding some. There are Coolermaster R4-SPS-20AK-GP which are 15mm thick, but don't seem to be in stock anywhere (I'm in Ireland and using UK Partpicker as well as Google to try and find some) and the next best alternative is a pair of Noiseblocker BlackSilent Pros, but they're very expensive and the reviews on them seem to be mixed.

I'd love to hear some of your thoughts or recommendations. thanks folks.

Is getting a slightly bigger case an option? i know your looking to fix the fan issue, but a slightly bigger case would probably help a lot

I'm sure it would, but I've picked this case cause it's easy to work with and it fits on the standard Ikea Kallax shelf unit in my flat :)

I've ended up finding the following: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/akasa-slim-fan-designed-for-htpc-slim-system-808010.8mm-pwm-control-fg-076-ak.html They're on the way now and should be here Wednesday.

When I shop for Europe I like to use geizhals.eu (https://geizhals.eu/?cat=coolfan&xf=11007_20%7E355_80%7E5920_4-Pin+PWM) It has far superior sorting features to pcpartpicker when it comes to finicky stuff like fan depth. FYI, all of these fans have a depth <20mm:

3-pin:

  • Titan TFD-8015M12Z

  • Yate Loon D80SM-12B,

  • Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentFan XC1, 80mm

  • SilenX iXtrema Pro, 80mm (IXP-52-11)
