Need Recommendations of Quiet/Silent High Air Flow Fans

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I built my first liquid cooled setup about a year ago. Just did my yearly flush/replace tubes and such and slapped the rig back together. Everything is now perfect - it's finally finished after about a year of accumulative work (I'd like it then become unhappy with something, first time I've deemed it "perfect"). But it is only perfect in terms of aesthetics. I have a Koolance radiator that suggests using high air flow fans due to the fin density of the radiator. I just bought the fans on the Koolance site out of laziness - but they're too loud. If I can get this thing to run quieter and still perform the way it does I'll be a happy camper. Any help is appreciated!

Your best bet for high airflow/static pressure is going to be Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15's. Their noise to performance ratio is unmatched. Depending on how high of speed your current fans are, you may lose some performance, but the noise generated by Gentle Typhoons is very low for their performance level.

Gentle Typhoons. I've heard that the new Swiftech Helix fans are supposed to be good, but I haven't seen any first hand comparisons between the two yet. So for the moment, I will stick with Gentle Typhoons, tried and true vs an unknown quantity.
