High static pressure fans don't have this issue and are better for my needs.

Just one last word to this "the bitfenix fans don't have the cfm they are advertised at". google for reviews, there are a couple where they measured the cfm and it was almost exactly as advertised.

I don't really like the term static pressure, it only tells part of the story, it tells you how much pressure the fan out puts when the CFM is ZERO. When it comes to picking a fan you should treat it like a pump (well it is a type of pump when you think about it), that means you want a fan with a airflow over a variety of different pressures (or restriction if you like).

I showed you a review of the spectre fans, one of them is The OP and the other was martins liquid labs. Both show the fans as being a bit meh.

Should point out I am saying this as not to confuse people with the nonsense that Mysterion90 is saying.

Indeed. thumb.gif
Usable airflow is the fan's ability to move air in real life application, not it's CFM in totally unrestricted or it's mm H2O in totally restricted use. Very few companies give use a P/Q curve showing what fan actually flows in everyday applications.

Sigh, I'm tired and won't be commenting any further. Apparently you don't want to understand me.

Completely disagree with your informal testing of the Thermalright TY 140 (if you did test it and aren't just throwing the name in to push an agenda).
But this has obviously turning into a fight and I want no part of it (I came here for reviews, not to fight the reviewer).

Also, please provide a source for your "this site tested and it matches the written specs" comment.
You are going to go up against a wave of criticism whenever you bring up this specific point, please back up your statement.

EDIT: Guess that's the end of that. BACK ON TOPIC chaps!

I have some extra fans that I want to use to replace my Corsair SP120's on my H100i.

What would you guys recommend out of this group for a push/pull setup for top and bottoms:

2x Noctua P12's

2x Noctua S12A's

2x GT AP-15's

Thanks a ton in advance for the info.

Have you tried running the fans off the motherboard or reduced the voltage to 5v/7v? If you did what temperatures did you get on the H100?

As for fans I would not recommend either of the Noctua fans, the don't do too well. The AP-15s will be fine, aside from GTs most good fans kinds sound the same on radiators.

P12 if you value silence. AP-15 if you value performance.

Thanks guys! Will prob just grab some more GT's. Seems like you can never have enough stock.

Ok to use the other Noctua as case fans or is that a waste?
