I don't intend to use the TY-140 fans as i'm going to use Scythe GT AP15 fans.

Ap-15 Are worse than ty 140 on a archon since they don't cover all the heatsink

AP15s are great rad fans and have good static pressure for heatsinks but the TY-140 covers more Surface area and is dead quiet like the AP15 no need to replace that fan

I've said it earlier in the thread, but these fans are incredibly impressive. I have mine at 100% all the time, and it's completely silent. How can I tell?

Well, I did some passive tests. Same amount of noise. That's impressive.

Are you talking about TY-140s? In my FT02 they are clearly audible at 900rpm, let alone at 1300rpm / 100%. The background noise from your case and the rest of your components must be pretty high.

Couple with two TY-140s, this particular combination has an unique position between top performer heatsinks. Not the top one though in term of raw performance, but for noise to performance ratio, imo it should be one of the best currently.

I believe you're aware of the TY-140 performance as well, with a Y PWM cable, for "as.s" mobo biggrin.gif owners like you, the primary advantage is at the ease and the comfort in controlling the double TY-140 pwm fans.

I'm waiting to learn if it will fit in a Beta Evo. Although there are better cases, there is no better case to fit under my shelf. So I wait.

It only performs well with aftermarket fans added making the H50 a massive investment compared to other superior air coolers on the market. Also the H50 is much louder.

Except that the h50 gets loud.

What I find interesting is that Sahil (Helios1234) looks at the surface area of the heatsink, which more or less bears out the results he gets. Also, he did repeat the tests and the results did not change.

The review is so exquisitely done it's another must-read, especially at the end where he looks at the SA, the D14, the Super Mega, the Archon and the HR-02 in passive mode, comparing them to each other. I love it.

Yes.

My 6850 can be a little loud, as well as the case fans.
But I took it out of my case to do these tests. So the only extra noise was from the GPU, which I didn't load and put at the lowest fan setting.
