Does anybody have suggestions for specific controllers for just a couple fans? I'll start looking around smile.gif

Well, two Yates chuggin along at 1400 rpm is probably moving more air than the H60's rad can even use, so it's hard to say. The Noc would definitely be more efficient. I wouldn't be surprised if it never had to go over 1k rpm; It doesn't on my Ven-X, which is less dense than an H60 rad but thicker. If you're more comfortable with push/pull, a couple 800rpm Scythe Slipstreams would be likely be plenty of air, and quiet. Slips push really nice air at low rpm but get loud after 900rpm.

So far as a controller goes, I'd go with a Scythe. Nuthin fancy. I have two Sunbeam controllers and they both suck.

Lose one of the YL on the rad and fit a shroud. I have an H50 and the shroud between fan and rad helped with the stock fan. I ran the stock fan from SpeedFan (http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php) with lowest speed of 60-70%. Don't need much are for a fair idle temp which is where PC spends most of its life.

I currently have a SanAce 120 6,000rpm thing on there, no shroud (as yet) set to 3% speed in SpeedFan and temps are lower than with the stock fan.



PS: You don't want a SanAce like mine unless you can live with that low background whine even on super slow speed. You'll even dread reboots.

Necro-post!

I purchased two 800rpm Scythe Slipstreams on the egg last night. I'll replace the YL's on the rad and then see how much of a difference that makes. If it's still too loud I'll put the other two YL's on a fan controller or just buy lower speed fans.

Will update as to how it goes!

ClickJacker recommened these fans in the "Quietest Case Fans on a Budget?" thread. Specs seem quite good. Might be worth a try.

One of my suppliers has it locally, but I'm flat broke at the moment and might only look at trying them come month-end.
