My buddy has some GT's and he brought them over one day so we could wire them up into him case and personally I didn't really like the feel of them. They are heavy and solid but kinda feel cheap. The push air and lots of it but they are too loud for my likely at ~70%. What are you planning on using your fans for? Heatsinks, case fans, WC?

Considering the heaviness of the fans, the cheapness of the plastic is how they keep the cost down. Remember that before the currency changes these fans cost less than $15US, retail.

 

I have some comparable San Ace Silent fans that came with zero accessories -- no adapter, no screws -- and no plug. I put the plugs on myself. I paid $22US each. They're now up to $23.59US. I'd say Nidec had to save some money somewhere to keep the price below the San Ace fans.

I am using 650D.

I will be using the fans mainly for the following:

Corsair H80 - two fans (push and pull)

intake - I need two fans to be used as intake. It will be placed at the top of my 650D.

I wanted to change the 200m fan placed at the front of my 650d but I think I can't place 120mm or even 140mm at the front.

post #536 of 2925
hey guys, long time since i've been on here but i went and overclocked my system to 4.0 today and got into thinking about my cooling setup. i'm have a CM scout with stock cooling, 1x140mm red LED front, 1x140mm top, 1x120mm red LED back.

basically i was planning on getting a NH-D14 for the cpu, replacing the 140mm fans with NF-P14 or NF-F12 PWM (since its $15 on ncix), and probably leaving the red LED in the back since i enjoy the touch of red. i was also thinking if it was possible to mount another fan on the bottom to create a wind tunnel, or if i would just be better off mounting it on the side panel (which i'm currently not using). if i do go the side panel route, how is it on dust since there is no filter? anything to be done for that?

what do you guys think?

Hello guys, I have a question, and I'd be very happy if you would answer it for me. I am putting a system together with a NH-C14, but since I have an Asus sabertooth z77 which only supports PWM for the CPU fan, the stock fans would have to constantly spin at the same speed. I thought it would be a good idea to replace them with NF-P12 PWM fans since I would like my PC to be as quiet as possible, especially when idle. But... From what I have read in a review, the difference in temperature between using the two fans could be quite large at peak.

Now, I am not actually planning to overclock, so I am fine with a small difference, just not too much. Does anyone have any experience with using NF-P12's on the c14, and is it workable, or is it just a downright bad idea?

I don't have a NF-P12 but the replaced the 140mm fans came with the C14 with 120mm Gentle Typhoons at 1850 RPM. The higher speed GT actually produced better cooling results compared to the original 140mm fans. On the side note, I think you can plug in the 140mm fans into the PWM socket, and your motherboard would still be able to control the fan speed through different voltage. At least, i'm able to control the speed of the 140mm fans of the C14 with my motherboard's auto fan control function. I have a ASRock P67 Extreme 4.

I've also found that it's more efficient to remove the bottom fan on the C14 to provide more clearance for hot air to be removed. But you also need to add two powerful fans on the rear and top of your case as exhaust fans to move the hot air away from the bottom of the C14 heatsink fast enough.

On some motherboards this is the case, but sadly not on the Sabertooth z77.

It does support voltage control for the chassis fans, but not for the CPU fan frown.gif Someone mentioned connecting the CPU fan to a chassis header, but I have no idea how that would work out.
