The [Official] Noctua Club - Page 218

post #2171 of 3060
Nice, price isnt bad. UK supplier has the pads at £5 which cover 2 fans and the pins at £5 which will cover 5 fans.
So not a massive amount on top.
I kinda like the original colours though, shows Im more bothered about performance than looks. Mind you Ive replaced the windowed panel in my case as Im a minimalist freak.

I join the club with a Noctua NH-D15S and 2 NF-A14 FLX in the front of the case. Everything adjusted to 40-50% rpms so you can only hear the mechanical hard drives powered on.

Why do you have the PSU suck hot air from the video card? the fan on the PSU is intake so if there is a filter in the bottom you should flip it around.

Ohh from where? Would love to throw some black ones onto the industrial and replace my vardars with them.

I dont know if you have watched any video from OC3DTV Youtube channel, but in a lot of them (specially when talking about cases or PSUs) he has explained time and again that position of the PSU doesnt matter. Heat rises so it doesnt affect the PSU at all. Ive been mounting PSUs with the fan looking up for the last years and never had any temp issues withe PSUs or higher temps than normal.

Also, my PSU is semi-passive, so as it is now heat rises so fan starts spinning later, wether if I turn it around, heat gets stuck inside the PSU and fan would start to spin earlier.

Nice, although I kind of like the original colour scheme, knowing that ive gone for performance over looks.

Pretty cool being able to color match Noctua fans now although not the cheapest solution


Nice review. Noctua's come a long way from the stock brown color. I still prefer it though. biggrin.gif

If they made matching red, green or blue fans that would be great.

"Heat rising" is a weak effect and plays no role in cooling when there is air-flow through the case. The PSU should suck air in from the outside and exhaust it to the outside.

The airflow in my case is 2 fans intake and one exhaust. When gaming the graphics card heat rises and goes partially to the cpu cooler (I have tested that several times as when using an AIO liquid cooler, the cpu temps didnt rise as much as using an air cooler). As for the PSU, even when gaming the air exhausted by it is barely hot and the fan barely spins.

I dont say its like that in every case, its just my personal experience.
