Phobya G-silent 14 experiences?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
About to pull the trigger on these to go with an Alphacool UT60 420 .

EDIT: link to the fans and shop in question: http://www.aquatuning.nl/product_info.php/info/p13471_Phobya-G-Silent-14-1400rpm-Black-Silent-Edition-3-Fach-L-fterbundle--3xL-fterpaket-.html

But I haven't found many (decent) reviews of them. I mainly picked them because they're not that expensive and they don't have sleeve bearing like the YL do (they'll be mounted horizontally, that's why I don't want sleeve bearing)

So, has anyone of you had any experiences with these?
Or if you see a better fan (in that shop because they're the only shop so far that has the Alphacool UT60 that I want) there that you have experience with...
I spent € 66 on 3 GT AP30's once and since then I feel reluctant to pay a lot of money for fans. The NB PK-3's seem very tempting but € 16 a pop is a lot in comparison to the Phobyas ... but if you guys can convince me tongue.gif

Kind regards

PS:
No, I'd rather not get 120's with a 140 to 120 shroud because it would look off (even though these will go in a case without a window rolleyes.gif )
The new rad will be paired with my current RX 360 to cool a 2500k and GTX 570 (GPU only) so I'm pretty safe in terms of rad space that I don't need the best of the best fans. Of course, better fans do help either way...

EDIT:
Going to pull the trigger on the Phobyas. Looked up some more reviews of the PK3's and they're not worth the 118% higher cost IMHO. Might write a review of these fans once I get them

Well I don't have any professional equipment but I do have some other fans I can pit them against and which can serve as a baseline. But not until the 7th of September, too much work with school at the moment.

EDIT: Got them today. They're shiny and seem to attract dust ... not the best feature for a fan IMHO rolleyes.gif .
But the biggest issue I have is that they make a "rumbling" noise when I hold them horizontally so I guess these are rubbish for a top rad .... Going to see how much it would set me back to exchange them.
