Fans for case and heatsink?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have noctua nh-u12p se2,and antec p182se,ehich fans are best for silent pc?
Have NF-P12 on heatsink,is there something better for the same amount of noise?
I can get hands on these , Scythe GentleTyphoon, Scythe S-FLEX,Scythe Slip Stream,Scythe Ultra-Kaze,NoiseBlocker BlackSilent Pro Fan PLPS.
I am seeking best replacement for my antec tri-cool vents,and if they have higher cfm on a low db.

The Noctua fans on the U12p are good enough. Are the temps decent for the clocks you are getting, or the clocks you are planning to get to? If so, then dont bother changing the high-quality fans Noctua provides.

Gentle Typhoons make a decent amount of airflow at a low noise, so they can be used to replace the case fans.

Yeah, I have heard that Gentle Typhoons are pretty quite and are really good fans.

Scythe Gentle Typhoon/SlipStream PWM/ +1
post #8 of 11
I replaced the two stock P12s on my U12P SE2 with two Gentle Typhoon AP14s. They are without a doubt quieter and better at cooling. You'll have to cut the ribs out of the fan corners for them to work with the Noctua wire hook things (10 min with a dremel).

The S-FLEX doesn't have especially great static pressure, but I don't recall how it compares to the P12; it does have higher pressure than the Slipstream. The Ultra Kaze is a loud beast, but it's also a 38mm fan; the 2000 and 3000rpm models will spank anything in the OP for static pressure. The 1000rpm model is still louder than the AP14 (to my ears at least, I haven't read any testing done on that model Ultra Kaze) (relevant review). I have nothing but good things to say about the Noiseblocker BlackSilent series, but I would point to the Multiframes instead: better performance and even quieter. The Multiframes compete pretty well with Gentle Typhoons, having slightly less pressure but being quieter and having two PWM models.

I've Love my Scythe S-flex fans. Smooth as butter worth seekig out IMHO. They have been replaced by Kama Flex and now include a 135mm model(mount as a 140mm). For silent probably block off the top and side case fan mounts and focus on cooling the hot parts with Thermalright Shaman, Noctua NH-C14 and the like.

EDIT:Oops no side fan in the P182. BTW Most fans are silent at 700rpm. You can get away with higher RPMs for the CPU Cooler and any space near the middle and floor of the case if thats needed. Depends on how silent you want to go.
