[Official] Cooler Master HAF-XB Club! - Page 779

post #7781 of 10491
the stock fans are crap, imo. Any fans in the -20 euro price range are better

few other fans to consider:

- Alpenfoehn Wing Boost Plus (case fan)
- be quiet! Silent Wings 2 (case fan)
- Noiseblocker BlackSilentPRO PL-2 (case/rad fan)
- NoiseBlocker NB-eLoop B12-3 Bionic fan 1900rpm (case/rad fan)
If you can find the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP15 or 00 those are superb fans for both case and rads..but rare nowadays.

Wow I found GT-15's for under 14€. How well are they visible in the front of the case? I wouldn't want to see a coloured circle. Also as the front can hold 140mm, how are e.g. silent wings 140mm compared to them?

You found some Scythe GT15's?!! Link! biggrin.gif

If you keep the front mesh stock you won't see them at all.
I don't know about the 140's but my guess they are silent as well, link to 1 review

There you go, apologies for the language.

I'd probably remove the honeycomb mesh from the front, but that doesn't play too huge role now does it.
I still don't really know which one would come out on top, GT 120mm's or some other 140mm's. Maybe one of those for the rear exhaust tho.

Can't read any of that, can they ship to the UK? Really need some of these haha.
At a bargain price like that I could pay extra for shipping.

Cheapest I found was on ebay at £25 each.

They state that they do ship internationally but doesn't specify where to. you can email them to asiakaspalvelu@jimms.fi but I think UK is no problem.

Thanks for your help, +rep




Whilst on the subject of fans, anyone got an opinion of these?


http://www.scan.co.uk/products/120mm-akasa-apache-black-ultra-silent-fan-hdb-bearing-4-pwm-with-s-flow-blades-1300rpm

specs look promising but manufacturers aren't always trustworthy with what they say their fans can do.

The Apache's are basically to Vipers what AP-14's/13's are to AP-15's. 

 

It's the same blades, supposedly they use "Military Grade" components for the fan. I bought a cpl used Apache's because i ripped the O-Rings on the inner spindle of a cpl of my Vipers when i was dyeing them. Since they're both PWM, i'd just go with Vipers. 

 

But also, there's alot better fans for 120's. Vipers are good for 140's because there's not a ton of options...

Ty for rep and glad I could help!

I know it ultimately comes to my decision but If there are 140mm fans out there that are more efficient/quieter/cheaper than 120mm GT-15's that would seem more logical choice. Knowing how great fans these are I think I wouldn't go wrong with them though.
