200+ CFM 120mm fan - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Please consider if using a carpet dryer, leaf blower, etc. that they are not really designed to cool things. As such, the motor may get hot during normal operation, and warm up the air output significantly. There's no sense in putting in a 500CFM blower if it fills your case with 45-50C air.

only moves around 350CFM. But if that's enough it works *shrugs*. has the same output and is a little bit better quality for $10 more.

bwahaha. The $180 one or the 4000 CFM one will work then.

the 480 is 4x120 per side right? so 8 pc fans at $20 each comes out to $160.

I see no reason to not get a carpet blower. But if you still wish to go with PC fans these are the best quality they come. CFM isnt as important as static pressure when your dealing with water cooling radiators. (Note: carpet blowers are masters of static pressure with 100+ bladed fans)


Either way, goodluck! and Please PM me if you do a build log!

yea that's what i was thinking of price wise.
although if i get an extrenal rad i would want some quick disconnects coming from the back of the pc and some on the radiator (the ones on back are important in case i ever take it somewhere i can close the loop back up with a single tube and not have to lug around 50lbs of RAW POWER)
and i will most definately let you know when i do it.
thanks again for all the help

And the fan you linked is simply their 120 X 38 mm sized version of the same line as Vantec uses for "their" Tornado fans.

With that said, if you plan to use many of these fans, you better have a damn beefy psu. Each one is rated to pull 3 amps, which is 36 watts.
