Fans!!!! The most complete and comprehensive array of tests and benchmarks - Page 206

post #2051 of 2778
I was thinking to cut out the grill of the back vent to help the fan biggrin.gif ...
Removing the HDD's is a no go
The sound has changed by a lot for the 2 years of use and i know how a normal fan sounds that's not normal biggrin.gif

Will read up on your guide seems interesting and will try to change something. But as i said the NB's are getting job done just not at the sound level i want them to. Even at 1300/1200 rpm they sound the same as at 1900/1800 aka LOUD biggrin.gif There is something wrong with them that's it.

That's it

I need something that provides near to the NB performance that will be on their sound level but will hold it for more than 2 years. Thats it..."

I'm reading that as he now wants to replace the NBs that have gotten unacceptably noisier after two years with equivalent fans that will have the same performance and noise levels as his NBs were when new but will last longer without increasing in noise levels like the NBs did.

i wasn't talking about the NBs, i was talking about the fractal fans, he already has a set.

I ordered 2x ML120 Pro's just now since my retailer only got me 1 of those Zalmans frown.gif so i guess we shall see what happens in a week.

After a while maybe a Fractal Design Define XL R2 case .... or Define R5 Black looks even better even thou it's smaller.

Look up Magnetic Levitation bearing and you will quickly figure out who is working with Corsair on these fans. I actually have P-Q data from retail samples as well, along with the same for the Noctua NF-F12, the GT and EK Vardar so it's going to be a pretty good fan. More details in a week's time.

I'm looking forward to your report! I'm curious how durable and quiet they will be, especially when running horizontally (laying down flat), and how they will compare to other fans when it comes to static pressure.

Funny thing is, I don't have the fans in my hands yet. I had them go directly for a test on a Longwin for the P-Q, and more, and so I am waiting on them to arrive here as well. You will see a lot of reviews/videos etc from mainstream media next week though.

Sunon? The only fans with "maglev" bearing I've had were retailed by Enermax. While they pushed a lot of air they did so rather loudly. Decent fans, not too expensive, but nothing to write home about.

Enermax went with lower end models to re-work their SKUs, possibly to hit lower price points. I had tried those out also, and were ok but nothing special like you said. Lots of air = air flow noise though, it comes with the territory. I just don't think the ML fans are best for low restriction applications including CPU coolers, they will really shine on radiators. Makes sense given the high restriction CLC rads Corsair sells.

best 140 fan?

The definitive answer, as ever is: YES!



biggrin.gif


The less definitive answer is...best 140mm for what use? On a cooler? Rad? Case fan? Best max airflow regardless of noise? Lowest noise to airflow ratio? Sadly, there is no single best 140mm fan. (Not even the TY-147a is the best in all scenarios - just the important ones. tongue.gif)
