Looking to replace the case fan in my pentium desktop (currently has an Innovative model BP802512m, DV 12V 0.16A) which is quite loud. I tossed in a 120 mm case fan in to make sure it can run, and it's running fine, now I just need to get an 80 mm fan. The case fan is 0.08A, should I replace kind for kind here, or is it just a matter of pushing air (this is a P75 with just a heat sink on it, no active cooling over the CPU).
On that note, the power supply fan is loud (not as loud as the current case fan), is it possible (recommended) to toss in another fan that's quieter into the power supply? I also noticed the fan itself is pushing air out of the system, would it not be better for it to pull air into the system, or the fact that there's a case fan pulling in air it's better to push it out?
