Thanks for taking the time to answer ehume
But i am confused by some answer so maybe i didnt explain good enough
1. My question: So if going silver arrow I have to remplace
one of the Ty-140 fans with a side 120mm fan?
that way the side fan being 120mm instead of 140mm will not interfere with high memory?
Your answer: Correct, if you do not modify the tall memory. You can remove the heatsink of tall memory and replace it with a generic low profile heatsink. You can buy those.
New Question: I didnt understand that with remove heatsink of tall memory
but if i dont remove heatsink of tall memory etc... if i get silver arrow
this mean is very important that i dont use 2x 140mm fans
i need to change it so is 1x120mm fan and 1x140mm fan..
the fan that is to be changed is not the middle fan but the side fan
Can you confirm this again?
My question: This is a must if going Silver arrow with my case/memory ... otherwise if will lean toward the to of the ram right?
Your answer : I do not understand this
New Question: Ok i explain question again i mean that if i buy silver arrow
there is no way i could use both 140mm fans because if i do then probaly one of the fan (Sidefan) of silver arrow will go too close to the top of the memory ram of ripjaws X
I dont want to do any changes to the ram at all
So i defently have to remove the side fan 140mm on Silver arrow and put in a 120mm
with "A must" i mean there no other way thats what i have to do with silver arrow...
but... having 1x120mm+1x140mm fan instead of 2x140mm fan would that not make silver arrow not so good after all what make this fan good is 2x140mm i think...
So is it realy a point for me get silver arrow then
it will be just like noctua 1x120mm+1x140mm and not 2x140mm that silver arrow initally came with
that was the big plus of choosing silver arrow....
My question: As for Noctua to get a PMW fan you recomend remplacing the middle fan with a TY-140 but what about the other side noctua fan when having a Ty-140 in the middle will the sidefan of noctua be slave to it and also go on PWM ?
No. Only PWM fans can be controlled with PWM signals.
New Question: I didnt understand PWM fans can be controlled with pwm signals
but... i try to rephrase my question more easy
Noctua N14 comes with 2 fans:
You told me to remove NF-P14 140mm fan with a PWM 140mm fan Like Ty-140
this i understand thats the middle fan of noctua
but then NF-P120mm fan you told me not to remplace why?
is this fan PWM then....
or what realy matters is the middle fan as soon that fan is PWM
the sidefan can be no-pwm and the fan will still be controlled pwm?
So question is i only remplace the 140mm fan of noctua with a 140mm pwm fan and leave the 120mm fan even if that fan is not pwm ?
Also on this site:
They recomend using 2x 120mm fans on Noctua instead of 1x 120mm and 1x140mm to get it more silent is this true?
It depends. So far, I have not been impressed with the additional cooling from a third fan. But I've not been able to get back to my fan testing to find out for sure.
New Question: NO, what i meant what not putting in a third fan, i dont want a third fan.
i meant having 2 fans
but instead of having one 120mm fan and one 140mm fan
have only 2 120mm fans
1 120mm midle fan
1 120mm sidefan
1 140mm midle fan
1 120mm sidefan
(as noctua comes with)
I said: If i buy megahalem and go 2x 120mm fans or SA and remplace the side 140mm fan with a 120 pwm fan (as you sugested) would Enermax T.b Trio be good one?
You said: That T.B. Silence fan is PWM and adjustable. However, those thin blades suggest low static pressure. That might not be necessary, but there it is.
Question: Is low statis presure a bad thing in my case?
or you mean normaly static presure is more expensive and i dont need to pay for only because of that?
(The only reason i paying more here is because of the led efect anyway and thats fine)Edited by Gilgamesh9 - 5/15/11 at 2:38pm
