Hi,
I'm gonna be running an atom based system and have a slot for one 120 mm fan for intake and one 80 mm for exhaust. First off, there is not cpu fan on this comp, just a huge heatsync. I don't think there is enough heat generated to cause much of a heat issue. Since the main purpose of this build is for a supper low power system, Does anyone know were I can find supper low watt fans? I'm looking for fans that draw less then half a watt. All the sights I see don't list watts. I'm thinking I don't need much more then 15 cfm for the front fan since the hottest thing in there is a 8w (thermal heat) cpu. Do you think I even need case fans? The psu is a seasonic with a variable 120 on it.
thanks,
Cody

You don't need a front fan, nor do you need a rear fan for that thing. The psu fan will be more than adequate; if the psu is fanless, you'll be OK without a fan too.

thanks, my only worry is that i over sized the case a little and thought the psu might not have enough pull. Its a thermostat fans so sometimes would be off.

The link below has a large selection of 120mm fans. Clicking on the fan gives specs, including wattage. I didn't see any there but in the past I have bought variable speed fans and temperature controlled fans. Look for that type.
