Best 92mm Fan for PC, Server Case & CPU Heatsinks in 2018

If you are looking for a good 92mm fan for PC cooling or as a replacement fan for a device or component then you are at the right place. These 92mm fans are generally used in SFF low profile PC cases, mini-tower cases, server cases, compact CPU coolers, SFX power supplies, 3D printers, NAS server chassis and in some audio / video or electronic equipment. You can also use these fans on your passive graphics card or budget graphics card if it has been heating up a lot. Some users also use them to cool the motherboard VRMs, RAM and hard disk where a bigger 120mm fan cannot fit in.

A 92mm fan is slightly bigger than an 80mm fan but it is substantially shorter than a 120mm fan. It offers a great balance between compact size and airflow, and can be used for cooling down devices other than PC components or computer cases. These fans are manufactured by handful of companies and here I am going to list down the best 92mm fans with high airflow and static pressure. You can use these 92mm fans on SFF low profile cases, server case, pre-built slim PCs, mini-tower case, audio video equipment, on graphics card, NAS server, DiskStation DS918+, 3D printers and smaller CPU coolers, low profile CPU coolers and heatsinks.
