What I like about them is that they seem to outmatch the Cougar Vortex according to that same article yet they're sold at a very good price and with the same HDB bearing (~FDB).

I used to go there sometimes in the summer as a child. Born in Lille, have seen Bayern a few times, Bourgogne and now Paris. To the second degree my family is from Nord and Somme.

Nice to see French oc er.
A bientôt.

So I got my Prolimatech USV 140mm, it's so cute and thin, but wow put a filter on it and it may as well be off. What is this fan's intended purpose? Exhaust where you're lacking space for a 25mm?

I'm with you, 1000rpm is a tonal threshold period, there is not one single fan out there that is silent or very quiet over that. Even at 1000rpms most fans are noticeable. I tried AP 15s because of all these people saying they're quiet at 12v. I don't think I'm acoustically sensitive but you've got to be kidding me, AP 15s at full rpm are unbearable. And you have to keep maintaining those things with squirts of fluid. And they cost $20+. Yeah they move air, and through barriers. But I think they are waaaay over-recommended.

Personally I think rosewill hyperboreas are a better choice, a lot cheaper, no maintenance, good airflow and pressure. Not that I can stand to run those at full rpm either. If you're undervolting AP 15s you may as well get these IMHO.

Nah, I'd say some fans a bit above 1000 rpm are fine. Those same APs, the AP-13 at 1150 rpm, should be just peachy, better than many fans acoustically at 1000 rpm (certainly AP-15 at full speed... I don't get it). Then again, airflow is lower than most fans at 1150 rpm. Try AP-15 at 7V or so for a rough idea or so. I don't really know about these things needing that much maintenance. Still probably overrated though.

But it's all relative; maybe even that is too much for some users.

Hey @Tator Tot any update as to when we might see some data on that batch of Silverstone fans I sent you??
post #2638 of 2743
hello.. i just build my first pc around less than 2 weeks ago. im using noctua cpu cooler and its dead quiet. i want to change the fans into something colorful though. maybe red yellow or blue, hvnt decided yet. i was aiming for a quiet PC with window, and what i've build is quiet enough in my standard, and now i think i want to mix & match the themes starting with replacing fans.

im thinking about getting a phanteks fan to replace the noctua cpu cooler fan. but im really really new to pc building and initially before building this pc i have literally zero knowledge of what PC components parts do.
so... i'd like to ask, do you guys hv any fans recommendation that have colors? what should i research / pay attention to before changing the noctua cpu cooler fans?
i know i hv to choose static pressure fans, but other than that what else should i look for in the descriptions to know whether a fan is good / not good / quiet / loud...?

cheerssss biggrin.gif

btw,, if its not stated outright like Corsair SP and AF, which part of the specs should i read to let me know that a fan is supposed to be a static fan or an airflow fan?
It's just RANDOM

Other then that, at full speed the move some serious air, and at slower speeds, they are whisper quite. Not silent, but very quite and pleasing to the ear (at least mine).

So off I go to ask for a "Return Product" ticket.

I would return the problem fans because that's not how they normally function. I've purchased over 2 dozen GELID Wing 12 PL fans and I've run into a few problem ones. Hope you can get those replaced because GELIDs are great fans, among the dozen <2000rpm high static pressure fans I've tested over the years.

I love my Zalman zm-f3's. They've been really quiet at all speeds and have a pleasant tone. Dissapointed by the zm-sf3 however. Is the ELQ bearing just a sleeve bearing? The performance of the sf3 was good but the noise was harsh. Maybe I got a bad fan.

Anybody else excited for the aerocool dead silent fans?

Also for Tator Tot, any chance of adding Thermalright TR-X's to this test, or any thoughts on these fans at least?
