Fans!!!! The most complete and comprehensive array of tests and benchmarks - Page 248

post #2471 of 2503
If I replace my Scythe Kotetsu for a NH-D15s, would that reduce my GPU temp since it will have more space between the heatsink and gpu or that wont matter at all?

I didn't add an exhaust fan yet, but I will try that tonight. I will definitely clean my computer of dust too, tonight. Since I am not longer in my dorm room, my GPU temp is 5C lower but its still around 76C, I would prefer even lower.

I changed out a few fans other than my new Noctua AF-14 industrial 2000 rpm fans. The Noctuas were making crazy bad noises and I already ordered some replacements.

The act of changing out a few existing fans and how things were hooked up just a bit... made the Noctuas stop being super loud.

Like, night and day different. Now the noise is exactly what I'd expect. The noise of air being pushed through fans.

Welp, holy crap, these are incredible fans!

I'm wondering if I was overtaxing the NZXT Kraken x61's fan hookup. I had an extra fan connected to it that is no longer connected.

I also forgot I'd made my rear fan pull air in instead of pushing out as an experiment, so that could have been an issue too (though the Kraken radiator is an entire 140mm fan space from the rear).

Yeah, as long as these keep making the noise they are making, they totally hold up to the hype.

I was so utterly disappointed in these fans when I got them. Thought everyone was on something.

NZXT Kraken x61, Noctua AF-14 industrial 2000 rpm fans vs Cougar Vortex CFV14HP

Standard use, the Cougar fans are a bit quieter and about the same temperature.

If you overclock and bench, the Noctua pull ahead because they keep getting faster with more and more static pressure well after the Cougar.

I love Cougar fans and will find a place for one or two of them, but the Noctua fans are staying on my radiator.

Anyone?

Keep in mind I also added a Samsung 960 evo right above the GPU in the M.2 slot on my Maximus VII Hero, so I dunno if the temps would be lower with the extra space the NH-D15s would provide between the GPU and heatsink.

Are you talking about swapping the CPU heatsink fan? If so, I can't imagine it will have any effect on the GPU.
post #2477 of 2503
No, the CPU heatsink, not the fan, because if I switch from the Scythe Kotetsu to the NH-D15s, there will more space between the GPU and the CPU heatsink and more space for the m.2 to breath. I believe because my Kotetsu goes over the M.2 slot too, so it might restrict the airflow... but I dont know.

I might be wrong, but I dont know. I just thought leaving more space between the GPU and the CPU heatsink would yield a small temp decrease.

very small. probably not measurable, unless there is little case airflow.

It is unlikey to change GPU temps. You might find "Ways to Better Cooler" linked in my sig of interest. 1st post is index, click on topics to see them .. 5th is a good place to start.

Edit: As dwolvin GPU temps will change only if case airflow changes. wink.gif

You can find a Nidec D1225C12B7ZP-62 on taobao. It looks like a GT fan with an extra ring around the blades ( also found on AMD's Fury X ). How would that one perform vs a normal GT fan at similar rpm?
