i wish there was a newer updated guide to fan arrangement in your case explaining the different types of fans for intake vs exhaust and ones for heatsinks and rads.

im somewhat clueless the ideal setup for have efficient cooling. not really interested in trying to drop my temps drastically since with my setup i would gain at most a couple *C.

but stuff like do you want like higher cfm fans for intake and exhaust compared to whats on your heatsink, but have the fans on the heatsink have higher static pressure. and all that stuff. just a more detailed guide tongue.gif

I might do some testing with differenct fan configurations when I have got all my parts (I have some extra fans anyway), will let you know my results.

You need to get some Swiftech Helixs tator.

I got my Silent Wings 2 and 800rpm Eloop!

I can definitely say that the 800rpm Eloop is completely inaudible at 1m away. And can probably say the same for the SW2 at 800 rpm. At 1500rpm the SW2 is still quiet but definitely audible. Both don't push out that much air compared to fans like Scythe Slipstreams or TY-140. I would say they push about as much air as GTs or Noctuas at the same speed.

I think the SW2s are my new favorite "silent" case fan. I'd be more than happy to have only that much noise when gaming. Still, they are damn expensive and not PWM. TY-140s are on heatsink duty.

Those eLoops look pretty interesting. I wonder what their static pressure is since they don't have type blades and looks more like a turbine to me.

Noiseblocker's Nano-SLI Bearing is, to all my knowledge (and some dead Noiseblocker's) a "Hydro Dynamic Bearing" of sorts.
They're using something other than brass to sleeve the shaft (probably where that Nano-SLI stuff comes from) and then the whole bearing itself is filled with oil (seems to be a special blend as well, not the same viscosity or color of what I typically find) sealed up air tight, and then magnets are added to both ends for balance. Like wise, it also has a large magnetic field to help with that

From what everyone has said, they weren't that good so they were not top-picks to grab. I'd like to give them a shot, but they're the same as Titan Kukri's I do believe, which were rather meh.

Pressure on them isn't amazing

1500 RPM / 58 CFM / 1.47mmH20 / 21dB

Rated at least.

 

 

BeQuiet and some other brands have similar results, Noctua's the best when it comes to pressure vs RPM, noise, or Airflow.

R.I.P. Noiseblockers frown.gif. Finally a company that doesn't just sell a sleeve bearing under a fancy name... Not that I expected that their bearing aren't really good. Especially their second generation.

Well, according to the specs it isn't that high as Mr. Tator pointed out, but the reviews I have seen on them (can't test it myself since I don't have a heatsink or rad to test it on), they work really well pushing air through obstructions like rads and heatsinks. Don't use them with something obstructing their intake side though, they make a real racket that way.

Any chance of getting NZXT FN-140RB or the FZ? Really curious on how they'd compare against others.

I had a set of those Titan Kukris, Meh is right. I was very unimpressed. Loud, felt cheap, and they didn't feel like they pushed as much air as I expected. The on;y thing they had going for them in my opinion was that they are PWM and came with rubber "screws"

 

 

I didn't think the eLoons would be amazing but it is an interesting concept that has a sound theory behind. Wonder if they refine the design or try something else
