i expected the FLX to be loud at full speed since they run faster than the fractals but at it's lowest speed its pretty close to the fractal at 7v.

interesting to hear the noctua moves more air. specs claim they're fairly even

Well, I just had the fractal's motor die on me today. I can no longer say that my experience with that fan good data.

The Noctuas are pretty quiet all things considered, but they make a wooshing noise. I haven't done much with the low speeds. When they do spin down to around 900RPM they are very quiet, I hear the Low Speed Loon that is mounted in the back of my computer cabinet over all the other fans.

Hey, I'm currently looking into buying a Noctua cooler for my computer. I have a Corsair Carbide 400R case, so the only restriction is whether or not it will fit. I'm really not sure which one to get but I'm currently leaning towards the Noctua NH-U12P SE2. I'm not sure which others I should be considering, though. If anybody has any suggestions that would be great.

Looking forward to joining the club. Thanks.

Well if you're worried about space, try a cooler that's oriented 90 from the tower coolers! The C14 would be perfect:

NH-U12P SE2 is a good little cooler but there are many better coolers for the same or less money now. New TC12DX for example

I know some people suggest top flow coolers like the C14 but they are not designed to help keep hot exhaust air separated from cool intake air like tower coolers do.

*Top flow dumps dumps exhaust in all directions on motherboard... now do you get the hot exhaust out of case??
*Tower cooler pulls air in one side and dumps hot exhaust out the other toward the back vent.

And the better you remove the hot exhaust from your CPU cooler (and GPU cooler) the lower the temperatures in your case are.. the lower your cooling intake temperature is.. the cooler your components are.

Im rockin the NH-D14

I'm with the NH-C14 equipped with 2 PWM T'Y-141 fans and my temps are fine (30 deg celsius for the CPU in a 22 deg room temp)

I have to write up my numbers, but I recently finished a series of tests on cases using the D14 -- without fans. On a non-OC'd i7 860 system (a hot-running CPU) the D14 kept the temps in the 50's, using case airflow alone.

Where do you live and why is the power source for your computer so sketchy? Only reason I can think of loosing so much hardware so fast. Or are you one of those guys that abuses their hardware while under warranty? wink.gif

That was at *stock* settings. I let my parts burn in for a month before I overclock.

I live in joliet, IL about 30 miles from Chicago.
I don't even have 3 prong electrical outlets. I'm grounded to the screw on the outlet with a converter (which btw when tested with a outlet tester, passes the "grounded" test)

Since I got my asus p8z77-m motherboard, I haven't had much in issues (except occasional overheating when my room goes past say, 90 degrees)

I recently got a new case to help with cooling tongue.gif Fractal design r4 with 4 140mm case fans.

Loudest things in my case are my HDD and my GPU fan (which is a msi geforce 660)
