Xspc rx360 rpm & cfm ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I understand that the xspc rx360 radiator does good on low speed fans which is rpm what about the cfm ? can the cfm be as high as possible which is the air flow ? also whats the best rpm fan range for this 360mm radiator its jus that I was looking at a 120mm fan called Phobya Nano-2G PWM Case Fan which has the following specs:
Air Flow: 64.16 CFM MAX
Noise: 25 dBA
Speed: 1500 RPM

that does look good I have heard about these Scythe Gentle Typhoon fans people talk about on the forum but they are noisey and low air flow compared to the above plus high speed

Scythe Gentle Typhoon:
Maximum air flow, CFM ±10% 57.6
Maximum noise level, dB(A) 28
Maximum fan speed, RPM ±10% 1850

Not looking good compared to the above Phobya Nano-2G

with increased RPM, comes greater CFM. The thing is there are radiators with high density fins and low density. With a low density fin rad, you want something below 1600 rpm, but with a greater density you want more rpm therefore higher cfm. It's usually just easier to speak in RPM so that is what is used.

Cfm means nothing if the static pressure is rubbish.

No. static pressure does. It's why gentle typhoons are so popular as rad fans and heatsink fans.

It's just sad most fans don't list the pressure they are capable of producing..
