Uhm...yeah.. I was referring to intake case fans..
Do you happen to know a 120 mm fan with better specifications than the following?
Noctua NF-S12A (PWM):
Rotational Speed (+/- 10%) : 1200 RPM
Airflow : 107,5 m³/h
Static Pressure : 1,19 mm H2O
Acoustical Noise : 17,8 dB(A)
Yeap, and... I do not understand your reaction...?...?
All I did was to say how and why I prefer to use (the specific) 120 mm fans as front intakes in my system.
Static pressure is the level that fan stops moving air. I have no use of a fan that isn't moving air.
Noise level is taken when fan is running in open space. As I said, only used that way in hot weather.
Now here is the P-Q curve showing what it really does and P-Q curve of NF-S12A below it to scale. notice the difference in airflow at mm H2O of second group of fans compared to first. Keep in mind this is only their airflow, so don't forget we need to consider their noise level as well. That data is in the Coolingtechnique reviews. They have e good data base compiled
Reply to 120 vs 140mm fan area was because you agreed with Depauville Kid's single dimensional area.
