Best 200mm Case Fan for Tower & Cube Cases in 2018

I have already covered best 120mm / 140mm case fans and best RGB fans in this blog but here I am going to list down the best 200m case fans for your computer case. You don’t find too many computer cases that supports 200mm fans because of their bigger size, but some of the bigger computer cases such as super tower cases and Mini-ITX, ATX and Micro-ATX Cube Cases supports 200mm PC fan especially on the front panel, but in some cases you may find them on the top panel too.

If your PC case supports 200mm case fan along with 140mm/120mm smaller fans then it is better to install a single 200mm fan rather than multiple 120mm or 140mm fans. This is because a single 200mm will be quieter, cheaper, consumes less power, use only one connector and pushes good amount of air inside the case.  

200mm fans are much quieter than the 140mm or 120mm fans because 200mm fans have bigger fan blades and they can push same or greater amount of air compared to 140mm/120mm case fans at almost half the Speed / RPM of the smaller sized case fans. For example, if 140mm fan has airflow of 80CFM @ 1600 RPM then the same airflow can be achieved by a 200mm fan at around 800 RPM only. Also, the power consumption of a 200mm fan is almost the same as of a 140mm or 120mm ones. It must be noted that 200mm computer fans can be both airflow and static pressure type ones. Here in this post I am going to list down some of the best 200mm case fans for use in your computer case for increasing airflow.

Top 200mm Case Fans from Reputed Brands

Here are some of the top high performance 200m PC fans that you can use in computer case as a front fan, side fan or top fan. 

Noctua NF-A20 PWM Fan

Noctua is undoubtedly the king when it comes to case fans. Here we have Noctua NF-A20 PWM which is a high performance and silent 200mm case fan that comes with 4-pin PWM connector. This 20cm fan uses Noctua’s Proprietary SSO2 bearing which is one of the best bearings out there. The speed of this 200mm fan ranges from 350 RPM to 800 RPM but with a low noise adapter (LNA) it spins at 550 RPM at max.

Noctua-NF-A20-PWM-Fan

This 200mm fan pushes good amount of air inside your case and has airflow of 86.5 CFM. It is very quiet in operation with maximum noise level of 18.1 dBA. It also comes with anti-vibration pads as to resist shocks and it minimizes the noise to almost null. The speed of the fan is adjusted automatically by the system or motherboard because it is PWM controlled. The fan has great build quality and looks very classy. The fan comes bundled with extension cable and y-cable for running two PWM fans on the same header. It is slightly on the expensive side but is totally worth the price you pay for. Highly Recommended by me if budget is not a concern and you want a high performance and silent 200mm fan.

There is also a 3-pin connector version available for this fan which is Noctua NF-A20 FLX. It has almost the same specs and performance as of NF-A20 PWM but comes with a 3-pin connector with no variable speed adjustment. You can check both these Noctua’s 200mm fans from the links given below.

Note: Some 200m fans are only 20mm thick but these NF-A20 fans are 30mm thick, so you have to check your case specifications for their compatibility with them. This is because there is no fixed industry standard for the size or hole spacing of 200mm, 220mm, 230mm or 250mm fans. This rule also applies to the other 200mm case fans in this list.

It has got 11 fan blades that are black in color. I would have preferred the fan blades to be translucent or transparent for better showcasing of RGB lighting in full glory.
