280mm 30mm thick rad for slow moving 140mm fans...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi again,
I have tried to go through all the tests/threads and they only had made me more confused that I was before, so I would throw a question at you guys, that might put some more light on my idea.

My newest plan is to install 280mm 30mm thick rad on top of my case, and 2x140mm fans on top of the case.

1. I can only fit max 36mm rad as VRM's on top of the mobo stop me from going any thicker.
2. I want it quiet without need to install a fan controller, so the 140mm fans really need to be below 20 db(A) with good static pressure.
3. I assume that the rad needs to be low FPI to accommodate slow moving fans.
4. I can only go in pull mode fans on top of the case and rad inside, as it less hassle to get wires through the case as it would be with tubes!

Any input is more than welcome...

I was thinking about EX280 or Magicool 280 Slim Radiator, but no idea what fans to choose...

OK,
I continued my research and bumped at Cougar VORTEX HDB 140 CF-V14H, which seemed to be a good choice with 1.38mm H20 at 1200 RPM and only 19.2 db(A)...

Since nobody wanted to elaborate, I decided to be a guinea pig and bought XSPC EX280+2x Cougar Vertex HDB Black (did not like the orange ones...)

You chose well, EX is a good, cost effective slim radiator with low resistance. The fans are more than enough for the EX too.

EX is great, and I would have to say that the best fans for performance would be the Bgears Blasters 1800rpm 103cfm/3.5mmHg 140mm fans. 50 percent more pressure but 50 percent less expensive than the Cougar HDB fans (the Cougar fans DO NOT do well blowing upward!)

Thanks guys,
I have read the opinions on Cougars on newegg.com, and I saw some people to complaint about horizontal installation, but the rest of them were happy! I see once I get them, if there will be a problem I RMA them and swap for Thermalright X-Silent 140, which in the matter of fact uses the same kind of bearing, but no negative opinions about horizontal installation of them!

I could go with Bgears, but they seem to be too noisy for my system, as I want to keep as quiet as possible and they are rated well above 30 db(A). I am aware that there is no unified way of measuring the noise produced by fans and different manufacturers claim some really weird figures, but I will see in practice.

What I was also thinking about is to install GT AP13 on top, I know I would be loosing a bit of rad coverage but the 1150 RPM version which I currently run in my system is more than adequate if it comes to the noise and amount of air being moved!

If you are going to spend the money on a Gentle Typhoon, get the AP15. Then simply use a Bgears 140-120 adapter, it's proven to work quite well.

I have got 2 120mm versions of those Akasas, but they are not that quiet as the producent states. When slowed down to about 900 rpm they are absolutely noisless, but at full speed are similar to a 737 taking off from Heathrow.

I wrote some good opinion about them in my other thread, but I did not realize that when connected through 4 pin to my mobo they are controlled through the PWM and did not run at the full speed.

If it comes to 120mm fans GT's are still my first choice, a bit overpriced but definietly not overrated!
