How loud are the Scythe 3000 Ultra Kaze's, really? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
4x on h100. Silent with a fan controller and loud as you want them to be

They are horrible. I have medium speed Yate Loons that I have left over from a radiator that push a lot of air, are cheap, and way quieter.

Why do you need a 3000RPM exhaust anyway?


i just saw they had a good CFM output and was wondering if they were any good.

i'm probably going to buy either CM R4s or yate loons instead though

Unless you have multiple twinfrozr-like 250W TDP and a heavily overclocked CPU on an air cooler in a very restricted case, airflow doesn't matter that much; just get some medium yates.

Quality wise, the Scythe AP-30/31 are miles ahead of the UK3K. (They are built by Nidec Servo, and have really solid ball bearings, though the price is quite high compared to the UK3K.)
EDIT: Art Vanelay, looks like we're on the same page over this, lol.


1.- they can get loud, just a little motor noise and a lot of air moving... DONT put a grill in front of them please

2.- they tend to NOT undervolt well.. i got 10 of them once, only 3 undervloted well, with no clicking noise, i think its more controller related than anything

3.- the best bet is the 2k rpm version, best balance between noise/performance

4.- you can get this guys too, for about the same price http://www.amazon.com/Koolance-Black-116CFM-FAN-12038HBK-Ball-Bearing/dp/B0050UQF72/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=1HA5BTRQQP45H&coliid=IK69DVFEBYGVQ

they are about the same as 1 san ace h1011




ALSO, you are really sugesting a 5.4k rpm fan over this one??? really??? do you know how LOUD the high speed GTs are?? and im not talking about the 3k rpm version here



1 more thing, that video from youtube doesnt represent the REAL noise/sound they make, trust me

I would suggest looking at the Koolance 120x25mm 2600rpm fans which provide 5.4mmHg pressure and 107.4cfm airflow but have dual ball bearings AND they are much quieter, and undervolt extremely well, all for $8 each.

Yes, I am recommending a 4250 or 5400 RPM AP-3x. Here is why- with a little soldering, and I mean a very little, you can put a PWM cable on them. Or at least you could a few months ago, still. With PWM they are an amazing fan, quiet as can be when you want, and extremely high powered when you need them to be. They also have far better bearings, and run quite nicely at the 1600 RPM range via PWM.

Edit: Not just speculation or asstalking, I've used two AP-30s for a while now (4250 RPM version), they run beautifully, and- are pretty damn quiet on a PWM controller. They also make really strage "lint" it's not natural fan dust, but more like cotton candy, lol- probably due to the spin speed. (I smoke, and my fans tends to get really dusty, really fast. Always cleaning them off.)
