Tator Tot's Big "Quiet" 120mm & 140mm Fan Round-Up - Page 134

post #1331 of 2743
Recently purchased a Corsair Vengeance C70. Looking to put fans in the following places and would like to know what is recommended for each fan place. Will be removing one of the HDD cages, not sure yet if top or bottom one. Price is not a concern. Will be ordering from Amazon.

2 x 120mm Front Intake
1 x 120mm Attached to whichever HDD Cage stays
1 or 2 x 120mm or 140mm Bottom Intake (depends on which HDD case I remove)
2 x 120mm or 140mm Top Exhaust
1 x 120mm Rear Exhaust

What exactly is a POM bearing?

Is this some sort of ball bearing made out of POM (polyacetal)?

I don't have them, but CM's gonna send me some.

 

POM (Delrin) Bearing is somewhat unique to the consumer fan market, depending on how Cooler Master introduced it to the fan (which I'll known once I have it) they've either taken the brass oil chamber away from an HDB and replaced it with the POM (Delrin) material to create a bearing that has less resonance.

 

Or they've used a POM cast to forcefully cycle oil through a chamber.

 

The later would be more impressive, but the former is more likely as it's been used in heavy industry.

Either one sounds interesting...I had completely discarded CM fans as of now.
post #1336 of 2743
Mr Tator, do you include this fan in this round up?

I took your advice and love this fan very much <3

Yep, the A14's will be included. Just the FLX model, and not the ULN as they are the same fan and the ULN will just have a lower speed range & be quieter.

Well I've given up on finding a white fan with good performance and tolerable noise.

So for intake and exhaust, which would be better suited, the GT AP-15 or Corsair's AF120 Performance? The AP-15's would be more versatile, and I wonder if they might be quieter when sitting right next to a dust filter.

However the Corsair 2-packs would make them a much cheaper investment.

Once again thanks for your insight Tator Tot.

What case are you putting them in, and what is your config?

 

Also, you could look at the GeLID Silent 12 & Silent 14's; they are very good quality fans that generate a very low level of noise. They also are relatively cheap with the Silent 12 Normal, PWM, & Temp Controlled models all running around $10-12 USD (Newegg) with the Silent 14 models running about $14-18 USD. (On Ebay & SuperBiz)

Case is a Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 Advanced black. I'm running an 85W Xeon E5530 on an Intel DX58OG, which gets particularly hot. This is a secondary gaming rig I built for cheap for LAN events and such.

It's not a large case, and temps aren't as great as I thought they might be, which is why I'm looking for higher performance fans.

The Gelids are tempting, but only 1000RPM which I don't think is quite enough. I'm running a NZXT slider style fan controller, but I suppose I could always get the PWM Gelids (1500RPM max) and jury-rig them into the controller (only fits 3 pin fans). The white fans look great in this case but in the end I'd rather have good performance.
