Fans!!!! The most complete and comprehensive array of tests and benchmarks - Page 69

post #681 of 2758
Would you guys recommend static pressure fan or just airflow fan as intake? I wouldn't say that I have any HDD cages blocking anything either. Noctua NF-S12A or NF-F12 are the fans I'm thinking about purchasing.

As an intake fan for a case you really don't need static pressure that much, it comes in handy for radiators and heat sinks. Any fan with decent CFM should do, I think between the 2 the NF-F12 is the better one. Seriously though for intake fans, I think a focused airflow like the silverstone AP series is perfect.

Best PWM slim 120mm fan

Trying to find some for RVZ01 case. There is only 25-30mm clearance between CPU / GPU and case vent. so trying to figure out what fans would be best. Want PWM fans so their speed can change to match airflow demand of CPU / GPU coolers.

Thanks

you could look at the Prolimatech USV 120s, but they are expensive. The 140s although supposedly low on static pressure do very well on coolers.

I'm looking dearly for more results on 140mms for my 280mm rad. Currently it has the XSPC fans in push and Fractal Design R2s in pull.

I've been wanting to replace them with better static pressure, but I'm having a hard time finding better that's actually worth the upgrade except some yellow Akasas...

I'd also look int the Gelid Slim 12 PL Blue, I believe they were tested here and it was pretty good.

Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 looks to be a good fan.

Yes, the Gelid Slim 12 PL Blue is being considered.

Scythe Slip Stream 120mm Slim too, but it's not PWM

There is also the Cooler Master XtraFlo 120 Slim. It's PWM but...

Other 120mm slim fans. No idea if they are good or not.
Phobya G-Silent 12 Slim
Yate Loon D12SL-12 (not PWM)
Evercool TFD-12015H12ZP

Phobya is basically Gelid in Europe, so the G-Silent 12 Slim is the same as the Gelid 12 Slim.

So I just looked at the charts and saw that the bitfenix spectre pro did not do very well. I just bhought 4 of them, 3 200mm and 1 230mm version. I also have a 140mm version already installed.

I think I know why the results are so bad the OP used the 3pin versions of them but there are also 4pin pwm versions which have roughly 50% more rpm (for example the 140mm 3pin version has 1200rpm while 4pin one has 1800rpm)

From what I can say the 140mm is very strong it pushes a ton of air and has a high static pressure. From the specs alone I was not able to find another 140mm fan with better values.
At 120mm the situation is different, we have those Delta which have outstanding performance but are as loud as a starting jet. Scythe has also some neat fans. I'm currently using a Grand Flex 120 PWM 2400rpm which blows directly onto the graphics cards.

Let's compare the Bitfenix Spectre Pro 120 PWM with the Corsair SP120 high performance:

Bitfenix:
RPM: 1800
mm H2O: 2,6
CFM: 70,52 +/- 10%
dB(A): 26,1

Corsair:
RPM: 2350
mm H2O: 3,1
CFM: 62,74
dB(A): 35

It's up to you to decide which one is better the Corsair has a slightly higher static pressure but thats it.

As soon as my 230mm version arrives I'll test it again the Coolermaster Megaflow which was preinstalled in my Coolermaster HAF X smile.gif

So why am I writing all this? Because I don't like how those results make the Bitfenix Spectre Pro Series Look like garbage because they are definetely not the OP did. just not test the best version of them. The PWM is Way superior to the normal version as i already mentioned the PWM versions have roughly 50% higher rpm and thus much better specs.
