Since the electronics inside are the same, they should sounds very similar. The rubber pads shouldn't change that much at low rpm

I switched from EK -> NF-F12 industrial -> NF-F12 classic and am still not 100% pleased. The fans are in push/pull on a 360 EK Predator and 800rpm is the max. rpm I am comfortable with to achieve a silent system.
So your honest opinion is that they are very quiet and perform well on a radiator? biggrin.gif


The classic ones. I didnt get the industrial since i would never run them at full speed.

I have come to the conclusion that it is the different fan motor noises that bothers me, not the sound of air going through radiators or dustfilters.

The NF-F12 are great fans but they do still sound more then the ML120 in my opinion. The difference is that i can run the ML120 in 1100 rpm and they sound less then the SP120 in 800rpm.
The 3 SP120 is the loudest thing in my PC now due to the buzzing noise from the motor.

If i run them in the full 2400 rpm they sound less then 1850 vardar.

Now of course, i might have been lucky, the next batch of fans might have som problems. Im not in any way a corsair fanboy, these fans are the only thing i have from corsair.

Like the EK Vardar, many people report no problem with those fans but some people do, like me. 4 out of 6 EK vardar 1850rpm that i got had the motor noise issue.
And im a EK fanboy biggrin.giftongue.gif

So to answer your question, yes, i think these are the best fans i have had for a long time.
Quiet, no motor noise fans that i have the option to ramp up to get over 4 mmh20 trough my PE360 radiator. And my temps when im gaming went down about 5c delta

No. They'll be very much useless especially if you attach the fan using normal screws. Always use silicon/rubber screws.

Like Smanci said, use the rubber / silicone mounting thingies. thumb.gif

To isolate fan vibration for case requires a vibration mount with vibration dampening on all sides of mounting. The screw makes contact with case around it's diameter and on outside. The only side 'dampened' is between fan and case. This means vibration is transmitted through screw to sides of case hole and case to head of screw .. making the rubber mount on fan worthless.

And old way of vibration dampening was to use a rubber grommet in an oversized cas4e hole. Fractal Design uses this concept for their HDD mounting. Just be careful to not tighter mounting screw too tight or they don't work. wink.gif

One is shinier than the other but I don't think that makes it a 'better finish'.

I dont know yet, because fans didnt come. On official website is only information "Fan mounting screws" so we dont know what type of screws we get.
