Okay, thanks. I'm just worried about my CPU temps after I swapped GPU coolers with the new cooler exhausting hot air into the case instead of out the back. I replaced my stock rear exhaust fan in my case with a NF-S12A and I can def feel a lot of hot air coming out during gaming. During gaming (BF3) I'm hitting mid to upper 50's and was just trying to do what I could to get the temps down.

The normal SP120's that come with it are the same, they're just not PWM fans. The SP120's (whole range) are good overall designs though. I'd just suggest sticking with the PWM ones and setting them to a low speed for when you're idle.

Haven't had experience with either fan to really comment. I haven't touched many 92mm fans though. Mostly 120mm & 140mm's with a select number of 80mm's as well.

 

Almost all of the 92mm fans I have used have been server parts.

 

GeLID Silent 9's are not expensive and given the history with their 80mm (I have two), 120mm, & 140mm parts; I could safely assume they'll be solid products.

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).

 

It sounds like you recieved a damaged bearing unfortunately. frown.gif

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?

It'd be better to set your side panel as an intake instead.

 

Pump in more cool air instead of trying to create a negative pressure zone around the GPU as that'll just suck air in from the PCI slots.

Are a pair of NF-F12s worth ~$20 more than a pair of Swiftech Helix PWMs? I have some of the 3 pin Helix fans and tried them out and they're surprisingly quiet and seem to be good fans considering I paid $5 each for them. Or nix the NF-F12s and get the AP-45s and hook them up to my fan controller and hope they don't make the high pitched whine that I've heard with some AP-15s that drives me insane? I'm open to other suggestions for the quietest fans possible on a Water 2.0 Extreme without sacrificing too much performance.

Currently I'm running a pair of these Cooljag Everflow fans that are quieter than the stock fans and perform just as well, but they started getting a squeak or squeal and what sounds like an issue with a bearing. I tried some Cougar Vortex fans, but they were worse than the stock fans by a considerable amount. Quieter, but much worse.

Not if you're getting Helix 120's for $5/each.

It depends on what you're using the fans for. I can never comment if X is better than Y if I do not know the situation in which they are being used.

 

__________________________________________________________________

 

A small update regarding the round up. I've been playing with the fans and I think I've found a decent shotgun mic which will not cost me a fortune so I can record the fans in action.

 

I'm not sure how I'll encorporate this, but I will let you know that it's going to be a bit odd based on some samples that folks are used to. As this is a high sensitivity shotgun that I was able to pick up on the cheap, it's mainly going to only pick up the motor noise instead of the airflow noise and be placed behind the fans to give you an idea of what noise the motor is giving off.

 

You will still have plenty of background noise from airflow (which is why it's placed behind the fan), so you should get some idea of what that's like. Though I have yet to find a mic or setup that correctly articulates what airflow sounds like.

Like I said, they're going on the Water 2.0 Extreme's radiator. I'm trying to keep roughly the same performance (a couple C higher is fine) while being quieter. The Everflows would be fantastic if they didn't have so much bearing noise and if I could figure out where that weird whine was coming from.

It basically comes down to ~$45-50 for two NF-F12s, ~$32 for a pair of Swiftech Helix, or $40 for two AP-45s unless there are some other good, quiet options I'm glossing over. If there are any good, quiet PWM San Ace or Panaflo fans, I'd be down for those too.

Ive got to ask.... I found yate loon 120mm fans (YATE LOON 120mm Case Fan - D12SM-12) on jabtech.com.
For a super low price of $3.60 each. Im thinking of using them for push pull on thin radiators. Are they really as amazing as many people say? Im after the best fans I can get but I dont want to spend more then $10 per fan and I need 7 fans in total.
What do you think?

Jab-Tech had the poorly performing "fake" Yate Loons in the past. I don't know if they changed.

I know Koolertek has them for roughly the same price, but, again, no clue if they're the real ones or one of the poorly performing ones.

The whine is probably electrical. Do you have them connected to a fan controller?

In your case, I would go for the AP-45's or the F12's. Swiftech Helix fans are not worth more than $8-10/fan. $32 for a pair is far too much.

 

AP-45's will not perform as well as the F12's but if you're saving $10 I would say that it's worth it.

 

F12's do beautiful on the Water 2.0 Extreme though. My only suggestion is to let them run off of the motherboard instead of Tt's controller built into the pump.

Real Yates are good fans. They are the utmost middle ground in 120mm DC Axial fan design though. A well rounded product that works well in most applications.

 

What are your radiators, as some thin radiators are very dense. Like the Corsair H100/H100i, Black Ice SR1, & GTS rads.

Lepa 70D, Rosewill Hyperborea, & Cooler Master Blade Master fans would all be the ones to look at.

 

Lepa 70D fans have the same sorta blade design as a Yate but they're a bit quieter per 1000 RPM.

 

Cooler Master Blade Master fans are a bit noisier but they offer good PWM functionality & the most static pressure.

 

Rosewill Hyperborea's do not have the most static pressure but they do have the most quiet bearing as well as PWM functionality that is good.

With GT Stealth's, you'll want to use a high pressure fan like the Blade Master's.

 

That's a very dense radiator at 30FPI. So you're not going to be able to use a "quiet" solution really. With PWM functionality you should be able to tie the fans into your CPU fan header, so they can be dynamically controlled by your CPU temps.
