Noctua on Megahalem? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well, I'd be running 1650 XSPC, 2000 would be way too loud, and at that speed the Noctua seems to have better pressure

Also would PWM still work if I used a splitter?

35DBa arent loud also, CM blade master are 35dba and arent loud, XSPC is the best out of there bcuz 3.0mm-h2o vs 2.61 noctua mm-h2o on the peak

I find 35dba to be intolerable, especially since I have stone floors.
Also, again, I'd run the 1650rpm XSPC, which have 1.8mmH2O

Alright so, I'm pretty set on getting the NF-F12, especially since cost isn't a big deal since I got a bunch of free amazon money.

What would be a good fan to pair it with? It gets most of its static pressure from the shape of the...post...things in front of the actual fan (cant remember the proper name), so putting another on full doesnt seem like it would benefit.
Would an NF-S12B FLX be a decent choice?
