Hey Guys,

I have looked high and low and no one has stipulated specifically to the H100X.

What RGB / LED fans can I replace the Corsair H100X standard fans with?

Thanks in advance!

Corsair SP120(1700rpm version) - that's what the H100X is equipped with
CFM: 57.2
Static Pressure: 2.08mm-H2O
dBA: 37

Thermaltake Riing
Rpm: 1400-1500, model pending
CFM: 40.9-48.79, model pending
Static Pressure: 1.11-1.54mm-H2O, model pending
dBA: 24.7-25, model pending

The H100X has an FPI of 20, which is a little higher than the middle of the road 16FPI. Higher SP fans are warranted for higher FPI rads.
What are you trying to cool, exactly? Depending on what that is, the trade-off may not be that bad.

I just want to replace the boring fans on the radiator to be RGB or LED fans. I have the thermaltake view 71 case and it’s got white led riing fans so thought I could replace those Corsair ones that sit on the rad with?
