They were at frozencpu for $14.95 each, I was going to buy the gelid silent wings at $11.95 each. I think they will be good, who knows.

I wish the new swifttech helix had a sleeved cable frown.gif

Nice price, I think it's a terrific deal. I just saw the 5400rpm ones at ppc's xD
Sleeved too...

I got a buyer for my TY-140s so I may get some new and shiny 120mm fans soon. thumb.gif

The sound profile of the 120mm & 140mm are about the same at full speed.

From what you said; what would you recommend being a good 140mm case fan? I need them to be as quiet as possible... no LED, just a fan. i have a white case and im trying to go for some sort of black/white color scheme... so im not exactly sure if noctua 140mm fans are a good option despite what i hear... Can you give me two options, one fan that fits my color scheme, and one fan that may not fit my color scheme but may be a better fan? These will be going on my bottom/front panel and top/rear panel of my computer.

sigh, none of the recommended value fans are available here in the Netherlands mad.gif

I need two fans which will be hooked to the PSU.

Does anyone have any experiance with the Scythe Slip Stream SY1225SL12L?
At 800rpm they seem like a good fan to hook directly to the PSU without too much noise @ 30CFM. Its a sleeve bearing, but its cheap which is important for me.

Overall, it is a very good low price fan. It was my fav for a long time before I started using more expensive options. What will you be using it for?

I just purchased a 200r case which comes with 2x 120 fans, however I read in reviews that airflow was restricted.

I want to get two more fans, one intake on the side, and one output on the top. Just for some more airflow. Unfortunately I didn't include the fans in my order, so now I have to order them seperatly, and the shipping costs is the same price as 1 fan mad.gif

The case also supports 140 fans, but I havn't researched those much (yet). In a few hours my case will arrive and then I can decide for sure if I want to go 140/120 as I'm not sure exactly which fans are supported where on the case.

edit: just saw that the 140 slipstream is PWM Adjustable, so it doesn't have to run at 1700rpm smile.gif Seems like this will be my choice.

http://tweakers.net/categorie/492/ventilatoren/producten/ can be used to check availability in the Netherlands, since a lot of products don't make it over here.

Turns out I didn't have to turn my Noctua NF-P12's down near as much as I thought to get rid of any noise. Rigged a rpm monitoring wire up and I can run it up to 1200rpm without getting any annoying noises. How many CFM would the fans be pushing at 1200rpm? At 1300 RPM they are supposed to blow 54.32 CFM and at 1100RPM they blow 46.2 CFM. I would think you could just average the 2 and get roughly 50.26 CFM but I'm not sure if it scales like that.

Xion AlphaWings.

 

The Noctua A14's & A15 are good.

Skip them, get GeLIDs

That's a good estimation. At lower RPM, the airflow drops off more dramatically, but at that higher RPM, averaging the 1100 & 1300 results should give you the best guess at what 1200 RPM will give you.
