post #281 of 2696
Kinda pricey but well worth it...
You can never have enough fans to test, right?
I like this sorts of threads very much biggrin.gif
Any eta's on new fan shipments to test?

I know I'm a lazy git but is there any way to compare the your review results without looking at the post for each fan?

Thanks

Thanks, I know there will be. Was just trying to compare them as it is now and it's a right mare... and I'm too lazy to make my own ledger of all your fine work. biggrin.gif
post #285 of 2696
Say, is it going to happen any time soon? I have a real interest in the results as I am in the market now.

I plan to have 90% of it finished by January 1st but we'll see how far that actually goes.

biggrin.gif Understand how that goes. Whenever you get a round tu-it is when it will be. And that's fine. There's a lot of fans and a lot of work ready done. Searching within thread and/or skimming to each test is not near as much work as you did gathering and testing them all.

Looking forward to it biggrin.gif

Are there any good fans with an FDB bearing at around $10 these days? Thermalright's FDB seems to be eol, Scythe's Kama flow 2 seems to be sitting at $15 thanks to the US supply issues. What other comparable fans are there? Corsair's SP and AF series when they're on sale?

Corsair SP Series, wouldn't really recommend the AF series unless it's a side panel or the top of the case. When restricted against a HDD rack they choke.

 

Zalman ZM-F3-FDB or Zalman ZM-SF3 when you can get them on sale. I've seen them around $10-12 on Newegg sale prices.

 

Cougar Vortex HDB's are not a bad option at $12 right now.

 

GeLID FN-SX12-10 or FN-PX12-15 fans can be had for ~$10-12 as well. Don't let the 50k/hrs MTBF fool you, as that's at 40*C. I also have one and it's a Hydro Wave bearing (Panaflo's FDB essentially.)

These guys are probably my favorites just due to the normally low price & good balanced performance.
