69CFM is right, but the difference of a Gentle Typhoon is no insane Airflow; but an excellent airflow to noise ratio.
69 CFM @ 29dB(A) is a good Noise to Airflow ratio. It's 2.4 to 1, most fans fit into a 2 to 1 ratio.
The static pressure on these fans is also very impressive for what's essentially a "quiet" fan like the Noctua fans. Noctua fans have just a hair over 1mmH20 of static pressure while Gentle Typhoons have a static pressure rating of almost 2.9mmH20.
That's almost 3 times greater.
The reason the static pressure is important is that it's a number which will tell you how well the air will move through an object, like a Radiator or Heatsink. The better the airflow moves through your cooling device, the better the device will be cooled.
These fans are also some of the nicest fans to listen to in terms of noise as while the sound pressure is high, the sound signature is very soft and hardly noticeable compared to other fans in the 2000-22000 RPM category.

What's the different in barebone? Doesn't have any connectors?
The Information is in the OP, but they all have connectors on them.
Our basic/barebone model will have a 3pin
connector on it. Only 2 wires instead of a full 3.

thx for the reply.. how would a complete verison look like?.. sorry for the newbish question.. im still fairly new to these pc modding and there connection style
Complete version would have 3 wires and a connector. Barebones version will have 2 wires and a connector.

No, you'll be able to see the RPM reading from the 1 complete fan, but it won't actually show you the RPM value of the other two.
If they are all being fed voltage from the same source though; they all should be running at the same RPM as one another +/-10%

how do these compare in noise to the stock h70 fan/ the ap15? looking to downgrade on the noise froim the h70 stock
These are a notch above the AP-15's (you could call them AP-16's) and much better than the stock H50 & H70 fans.

No longer going to need these fans, Plans have changed since the original group buy so I would like to remove my 6 fan purchase.
Please PM me so I can have a note of it then
