Opinions for these fans on RX240 rad

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Right now I have 4 GT Ap-15's in push / pull. I was looking at these BGears B-Blaster 120mm fans. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11894/fan-779/BGears_B-Blaster_120mm_x_25mm_2000RPM_High_Speed_Fan.html
So stat wise :
--AP-15
CFM:58
RPM:1850
dB:26
inH20:0.081

--BGears B Blaster
CFM:103 (?? Can 150 more rpm get nearly 50 more cfm?)
RPM:2000
dB:35
inH20:0.118 (Converted from 3mmH20 here)

They're about 10 bucks a fan so I was just seeing if it was worth switching or not. Thanks!

Judging from just their stats, they sound like a great deal, especially for so cheap...which leads me to wonder why they aren't well known around these parts.

I searched through eHume's fan comparisons and didn't even find these fans listed - as such, I guess no one's really used them.

My advice? Buy them, use them, test them, review them! biggrin.gif

103cfm at 35db is pretty difficult to believe imo. Their static pressure isn't very impressive either. You should look at the AP-29s they are only 36db and have way better static pressure, albeit less cfm.

They look pretty generic and I wouldn't trust any of the ratings on fans. Keep in mind that it's up to the manufacturer to determine how they're tested. The only way that fan will push over 100 cfm is in an open air environment, which means no radiator or fan grill on it.

Why would you switch from one of the very best fans for radiators, over to a cheaper fan? They'll be significantly louder, an extra ~$40 (minus shipping) that doesn't need to be spent, probably the exact same thermal performance if not worse, and those specs are probably incorrect. I never trust a manufacturers listing of CFM, dBa, or static pressure, they usually find a way to lie or "stretch the truth".
