Tator Tot's Big "Quiet" 120mm & 140mm Fan Round-Up - Page 67

post #661 of 2743
Thread Starter 

The "Enhanced HyperFlow Bearing" is an HDB, but I don't know who the OEM is for sure. 

 

My thoughts were on Everflow, but their site has been down for ages: 

http://www.everflowtech.com/

 

So I don't know for sure if they even have a HDB in their line-up. CoolJag has a similar fan they license from Everflow but it uses a 2BB. Like wise, information on it is easy to find. 

 

As for Noctua's fans, I don't know if they are made in the same plant or not; but fan & bearing design is from Noctua. They are most likely made in one of Kolink factories. 

Coolink is Kolink's retail brand. 

http://www.kolink.com.tw/index.php?page=4

 

Coolink's HDB, like I said in the start of this thread, is nothing more than a sleeve bearing with a copper core and a magnet added for stability. It has more in common with the Noctua SSO bearing than anything else but costs far too much for what it is. 

As they haven't sealed the oil chamber besides adding in an extra rubber washer. Like wise, the copper core does little to help with the oil flow or stability.

some really in depth stuff being discussed here

let me bring it back to noob level with a couple basic questions

if you want to use the MB to control fan RPMs, you need 4 pin fans correct? and these are also called PWM fans?

if you want to use a fan controller, like http://www.lamptron.com/product/controllers/fc3-limited-edition/ or something similar, you need 3 pin fans?

and do the controllers work by just undervoltaging (just invented a word smile.gif a fan with a fixed RPM?

sorry for the dumb questions

You can control both types as long as the mobo header can feed it without bursting into flames (look in the manual for the max wattage supported). It will also depend on the mobo header you choose and the mobo model itself. Again, check the manual to see if it supports pwm or 3pin, or both annd where.

Leaning Amazon atm because the free shipping, would be so much better if Newegg had them and I can use my -15% coupon.
I would use Amazon. With NCIX, shipping ($11 for me) the total was too high.

I got a great deal on Amazon. Some guy was selling a 3 pack and only one in stock. Got them for $65. So you really won't get better prices than Amazon now.

Actually I never updated that OP but I did I buy 3 from Amazon last Wednesday, got them yesterday, running pretty well so far.

You hear the noise of airflow at 12V, but quieter than my old Corsair AF140. 7V and 5V is dead silent(running all 3 through my case's fan controller).

I have a question

I see that corsair is putting out some AIO coolers with 140mm fans...should these be better at cooling than the 120mm ones or just quieter or both or neither?
