bitfenix spectre vs noctua

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have bitfenix spectre fans and know how they compare with noctuas or gentle typhoons?

I'm wondering if they're good budget rad fans but I don't want to spend the money to test them out. I posted this in watercooling because it is for a radiator.

I have spectre fans on my Shinobi.



They are not high speed fans, and move decent air for the low RPMS though.Ultra quiet which is what I was going for, but personally, if you're looking for Rad Fans, go with another fan.

Hmmm, I don't know how gentle typhoons compare personally, but I recently just purchased and installed a Gentle Typhoon AP-15 on my Kuhler 620, and it's probably one of the best upgrades I've ever made.

The stock Kuhler fan could pump an amazing amount of air, but it also sounded like a turbine. The gentle typhoon seems to push the same amount of air through my rad at like 1/4th the noise level. Kinda want nothing but gentle typhoons in my case now, I just wish they weren't so pricey and hard to find.

They're also incredibly heavy for a 120x25mm fan.
