Good advice.

I would have turned it on and THEN added water.

They were $9 each... unfortunately that's about as cheap as you're gonna find Gentle Typhoons. Low-RPM Yates will work with RX series rads, I think.

Let me re-clarify slightly.

My Delta's are unbearable at any speed. My Sunon fans (90 CFM, 42dBA I think), are bearable but LOUD and ONLY work at 12v (they would sound nice if I could run them slower though).

I don't necessarily want it "silent", just quieter than it is now. It's an annoying humming, whining noise right now. If it was a gentle sound of air moving, that's fine (gentle, not a jet engine taking off like my Sunons are).

Low RPMs are not the RX series. If he were to use Thermalichill TA120's or Black Ice rads, yes, low RPM's are fine. For RX he will cool much better with more CFM's IMO.

High-speed Yates would probably work for you, then. My friend got a few and they're really not bad, noise-wise, at least compared to some of the Silverstone fans I have laying around here. The price to performance ratio is pretty damn nice, too.

I think you're a bit mixed up, Black Ice works best with high RPM fans, the RX series works best with low RPM fans. (Sure you can use high RPM fans on the RX, but you won't see much improvement)

Sorry, I don't have the graphs to prove my statement.

The RX series is designed for use with low rpm fans

Keep the great advice coming guys. I am definitely paying attention. I'm hoping to buy my parts this week, gotta start searching for what parts still (I can try to look myself too tomorrow. )



Yeah, I missed the group buy. I'll take a look at how expensive those fans are too. If I go push / pull, I'd need 6 fans then. Or 3 for just push (or pull, whatever is recommended). And I could just buy a couple of cheapo fans for case airflow.
It differs based on what fan speed you are using. At 1500+ RPM push is better than pull and below 1500 RPM pull is better than push. Like others said, the RX series is designed for lower RPM fans.

I'm using AP-13 (1,150 rpm) on my RX360. It is fine up to around 4.1 GHz (and a single OC'd GPU) under full load. I do have a rather hot chip, though. I think. Anymore and they get overwhelmed. I just added a RX240 with the same fans, also. I prefer quiet and had the money and space for another radiator, so I did that instead of upping fan speeds and dBAs. Now, I can hit 4.5 and stay below a 60 degrees average while running prime.

Take that for what it is worth.
