3pin & 4pin pwm Quiet Fans 120mm

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi

I went though Frozencpu and a site here in Australia pccasegear and got a list of Fans toghter in XL format. And decide if any one can make use of it feel free to use

I ranked them in priority of CFM low to highest descending. Then ranked by best DB, with a margin of a couple DB, when you go though all the fans at Frozencpu, i found those are the best stats wise for being quiet out of all the fan there for 120mm. The first group on the xl file up top are under 20db PWM fans, the second group for 20-40db PWM fans, then the last group are all 3pin fans up to 20db only since there are a couple at 90cfm

It does not have back pressure listed, the PWM fans listed in red does not mean there bad, just a bit noisy for what i was looking for, the orange is the one im awaiting to arive for my cpu with the best stats. And the notes colume just ignore, there just my notes, it is not the ultimate list, its a list i knocked up and ranked all by cfm, followed by DB, and stuck fans in that that would fit by those 2 main categories as a eas way to sort them out. Take notethe Noctua and TY-140 are the only 140 fans listed that have 120 spaced screw holes, trying to mainly focus on the 120mm fan types

Little bit hard to read, and how have you organised the fans?

And you can make the links shorter

eg: CoolerMaster Sickle Flow Fan

Instead of it having containing 120mm as well as 2000rpm. . .

Hi soulster

Yeah they could be shortened, im on widescreen, forgot about that fixed, and updated below up top too

I ranked them in priority of CFM low to highest descending.

Then ranked by best DB, with a margin of a couple DB, when you go though all the fans at Frozencpu, i found those are the best stats wise for being quiet out of all the fan there for 120mm.
