Tator Tot's Big "Quiet" 120mm & 140mm Fan Round-Up - Page 141

post #1401 of 2743
I need help choosing which fans to use with my H100i in the top. I'm using the included fans, however, the noise is killing me... I'm receiving the replacement PWM fans from Corsair today, however I don't know if they are quieter than the stock ones...

I would say either GT-15s or SP120 silent editions.
I got the silent editions pushing air now, nice and quiet smile.gif

They're SP120L's, pretty good fans (SP120 with PWM). You could slow it down to have it quieter or just buy some GT AP-15's.

Is there any advantage in terms of noise to buy a Noctua NF-A9x14 PWM 92x14mm fan for the vrms, ram and Mosfet section of my gpu's when using the Asetek 760gc clc watercooling kit or will the 4 times cheaper arctic cooling P9 PWM 92x25mm be enough because there will be no noticeable difference?

Be Quiet has a better bearing, Zaward's are a bit cheaper, and sometimes easier to find under the Sharkoon name.

Hi Tator,

Thank you for all the helpful advice. I bought a Zaward Golf 3 at Amazon but I must have received a bad one, as it had some irregular friction noise in the motor and when mounted as an exhaust fan, it had a grinding noise, which was louder than my 3 Noiseblocker MF12- S2 together. So I sent it back. I'll try a True Quiet 120 next, it's cheaper (12 euros) than the Zawards (14 euros).

I can't comment on that particular Noctua fan but I've been using the Gelid Silent 9 for this purpose and I'm pretty happy with it.

Do you connect it to the GPU´s 4 pin header and let the PWM work or do you fix a RPM?

The GPU's 4-pin header does not fit a normal case fan connector so I just connect it to my motherboard header.

Edit: Apparently there is also a Silent 9 PWM (mine is fixed 1500 RPM) and Gelid offers a PWM adapter for the GPU connector that you can find on eBay for $6 shipped. If you're willing to spend a bit more, you can go that route. I personally find the fan to be quiet enough that I don't mind. By far the loudest thing in my case is the H60 pump on my GPU, which is a huge improvement over the stock GPU cooler.

Hey guys. I have an extra fan laying around so I was wondering where you think I should put it.

My current setup:

2x NF-A14 intake at 1050 RPM
NH-D14 running at 1200/1300 RPM
1x NF-A14 exhaust at 1200 RPM

Now I have a a 670 that exhausts heat into the case, so what if I put it as exhaust on the side panel? Or maybe top rear?

I'm not buying any more sleeve or ball bearing fans from ebay anymore, not anytime soon. I got one good Nidec and one with a damaged bearing cause of the way customs guys treat parcels mad.gif

Side exhaust for removing stale gpu air...wink.gif
