Tator Tot's Big "Quiet" 120mm & 140mm Fan Round-Up - Page 180

The color is not really nice indeed, but the quality is good and that was the most important for me. All my case fans are black and that's really nice in my black switch 810. Only my CPU cooler is Noctua

Hello Tator.

You had recommended me the NF-F12 Fans for my Corsair H100.
According too one graph, the NF-F12 are infact louder then the AP-15 and Cougar Vortex.

Now im stuck between the SP120 PE/AP-15/NF-F12.

NCIX did a review on various fans in respect to performance/noise ratio at 7V and 12V a while back. But it boils down to this:

5V: Corsair SP120 HPE is about equal to the Noctua NF-F12. Both are quiet.
7V: Corsair SP120 HPE edges over the Noctua NF-F12 by a bit in performance. HPE is 1-2 dba louder.
12V: Corsair SP120 HPE beats the Noctua NF-F12 in a very convincing way. HPE is much louder.

NCIX also measured airflow to static pressure. The Noctua NF-F12 has a good balance of both. The Corsair SP120 HPE is much better at all levels.For a radiator fan, you want good static pressure. Get the Corsair SP120 HPE.

Now this has nothing to do with the AP-15. I know.

Such a comparison doesnt make any sense when one fan spins much faster @12V (2350rpm) than the other one (1500rpm)...

And even a fan that's not pressure opimized like let's say the Silent Wings 2 has more pressure @2500rpm than a pressure opimized fan like the F12 @1500rpm

I got got some SP120 HPE's for the front of my Antec P280. They are going back. Even when you turn them down to around 1500, the fans have a low pitched whine to them. I can see how it might not show up on charts as loud but the noise is deceiving. I have a Noctua NF-P12 on my heatsink and I'm happy with it. I'm getting some AP-15's to replace my front fans, I originally had some and ended up getting rid of them because they will whine at certain RPM's, but I'm come to realize that is the least of the evils. Hopefully my experiences with all three of the fans you are looking at will help you.

Thanks, I appreciate the advice. As much as I want to try to like the Spectre Pros because of how awesome they look, they just keep coming back worse and worse from people who own them. I think I will then stick with the Gelids.

i've been looking at this fan:
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_413&products_id=23141&zenid=0781f169366caa0d95187af720b52f88
and this:
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_510&products_id=20512
Its going to be used as a rear exhaust fan which has a light-moderate restriction grill.

From that first list I'd recc the Enermax Cluster, Apollish, or Gelid Wing. Enermax's mag bearings are pretty smooth, just be careful mounting them with the bearing close to a metal surface.

I haven't yet used the Noc NF-S12A, but it looks promising, given Noc's recent revision of their less impressive models, of which the S12B was one.

The two GTs I have also whine when undervolted. Experience seems to vary. I like their heavy-duty feel, but given the increased selection of quality fans recently, imo the day of the Gentle Typhoon has come and gone.

NCIX is the only shop I can find that has them.
