Best Push/Pull fans for the antec Kuhler 920?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi lads,

I've ordered a kuhler 920 and i was Just wondering if anyone knows if it would be worth getting seprate higher-performing fans for the kuhler? or are the stock fans good? i mean, ideally id like win/win, quite and cool, but if i have to take 1 or the other, i''ll take the noisey cool ones.

What i was looking at so far were these: Thanks alot for any help smile.gif

Thanks again.

Kuhler fans seems OK to me.
I say test it with those fans. if you dont like it go for a San Ace , Delta or Panaflo(the 38mm thick ones, 1 fan should be enough)

Out of the two, definitely the Slipstreams.
Noctua's are way overpriced.
If you want really good static pressure, then some AP-15s are the best.

Slip Streams are not great for radiators because of their thin fan arrangement. The noctuas would be better out of the 2 for use on the radiator. GT's would be a better option if you can find them though.

Slipstreams are decent, they provide high CFM, good for cases/open areas and they're somewhat A-OK on rads (I had them for a while before getting AP-15s). Noctua would probably be better for rad/heatsinks but kinda pricey.

Hope this helps

Quiet fans motor wise, but the air movement noise [woosh] is somewhat substantial, just as is any fan over 1k rpms really. Tbh the woosh is actually somewhat low considering it's almost a 2k rpm ran in all honesty.

If you want something quieter and only about a 2-3C rise, grab these. [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Scythe-Gentle-Typhoon-D1225C12B3AP-13-Case/dp/B001CSKUQI"]Linky[/ame]

I keep all my fans sub 800 rpm... keeps my rig nice and inaudible from a few foot range ^^

Gentle Typhoons 1850rpm best performance/price ratio
post #9 of 12
I'm also partial to NoiseBlocker MultiFrame 1800 RPM fans. More expensive than Scythe Genlte Typhoons, but in my opinion, a better fan. More aesthetically pleasing and as good or better with moving air. I also love the power line sleeving that comes standard. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/8410/fan-518/Noiseblocker_NB-Multiframe_M12-S3HS_120mmx25mm_Ultra_Silent_Fan_-_1800_RPM_-_27_dBA.html

Pricey though, two will run you more than $50.
