Best fan with the better ratio FLOW/NOISE

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi, as you can see in my sign, I'm in project and for moment I cool my two 240 swiftech rad with Antec Tricool (stock of my 1200).

I wanna buy new fans to cool more than my stock fan but I won't anything noisy.

Have you anything to purpose?

Thanks, xk3tchuPx

GT AP-15's are the best for rads hands down no question's all I use on any PC I touch. Your not going to have your ear 1.4 inch from the fan so no they are not that loud.

After trying out the AP-29's, I actually prefer them to my AP-15's. They have a different a tone when undervolted, to me they are quieter at the same RPM.

I have have bough some fan for my rad and I have choose to take some Yate Loon D12SH-12 from PTS.

I stop on them because price vs performance is more importante in my case.

In addition, 88CFM for 40 dB isn't that bad for a 5$ fan.

It is sure, Gentle Typhoon Ap-15 are way better but they are more expensive.

If you want to save some money, I suggest you the YL, if you have a great budget, try to find some AP-15.

My ,

~ Lee

Edit : The Gentle Typhoon AP-15/Ap-29 are around 20-25$ per fan
