see my above post. bitfenix pwm pros stomp all over them they do the same job quieter and more efficiently (meaning you can get more on a controller before the poop out)
notuca industrials are nice but IMHO overkill too bloody loud, mind you the system that i heard them in didn't run them under 70%
Exactly how much performance is she going to lose by lowering HT to 2400mhz?. Also I recommended fans I own or have owned, I didn't know bitfenix had fans. I cant find a review on them those specs look too good to be true. I run my Noctua's full blast cant hear them I have kids, I once accidentally stuck my finger in 1 of the Noctua 3000 rpm fan at full speed while checking it out and it didn't break nor crack hurt a little not to bad though same case with the Aerocool they are both well made fans in my book with the Aerocool being a lot quieter and less deadly to your digits a very important factor if you have kids with sticky hands lol.
OK, fair point. I have actually use both
one thing i'd like to mention is i don't know if the Canadian version is different from the american version, their website would only show me Canadian only versions (likely due to my IP)
My best friend since high school (e.g. the stone age) has been using these fans for awhile now, I will say they get to a lower RPM in a DB range that you'd need proper equipment to test (this goes for both fans actually)
but once you start adding a little power at about 60% duty give or take 2 or 3% the bitfenix start performing better.
the only thing slightly disingenuous about the readouts is the DB level at 12v, but its only off by essentially a calibration error % of the mic. (or might be the fact this room is treated for dead silence, that would drive me mad)
every time i put a mic near one it didn't exceed 31-32db in the case and only from 10v on was the noise effected.
CFM and SP are accurate as i can tell, they are stronger than Sp120L and only when the SP120 HP are at full power do they out perform the pwm pros
these fans fly under the radar for so many people.
