Still waiting on Phantecs & Cougar 120mm / 140mm Hyper-Spin models.

Some initial impressions of the Corsair fans were taken as well. Nothing really important to talk about, but I can confirm they use a real Hydro Dynamic Bearing; but more on that later.

I hope those Corsair fans are good, I just ordered one smile.gif. At least they really have HDB bearings.

I'm working on taking the Cougar fan apart without killing it.

Since it claims to be an HDB, that shouldn't be too hard; it just takes patience.

 

 

GeLID Wing 12 & Wing 14 fans are here as well, they'll be added but it'll take time for me to figure out the bearing classification and if it's good or not.

Hmm...the Thermalright TR-FDB-12-1600 are on clearance sale for $4.88...I wonder if I should pick them up to replace my old old old Scythe Slip Streams 1.6k on my server...can't wait for the results of the tests!

Do so, better bearing & accurate airflow rating

AFAICT, these are the same as the old Scythe S-Flex fans. Whether Scythe or TR, they alsways did pretty well.

 

Just where can you get them for $4.88?

Well you could, but I won't give away trade secrets. tongue.gif

 


 

Sorry for the lack of updates to the roundup over the past two weeks but I worked 2 of my days off and had friends  birthdays the other two (as well as some Halo 4.) 

 

I'll get on back to this next week. As well as have some nice detailed info about new fans I'm adding as well.

So wait...both the Scythe Slip Stream 1600 and TR-FDB-12-1600? I have 2 Scythe S-Flex FDB and the size of the motors are different...the S-Flex has a bigger motor than the Slip Streams.

 

There are 3 TR-FDB-12-1600 at my local shop via CanadaComputers @ Kennedy Rd. dunno how many are there at their online store...they're on clearance.

 

So it's a buy right? Cool...will have pics up on the weekend.

 

@Tator: I've got an extra used Scythe Kazemaru 2 140mm w/ 120mm mounting holes @ 1.2k rpm I can send you if you want to test it out too.
