H100 Fan replacement recommendation.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Im currently running the stock H100 fans on a Scythe 8 fan controller.. as most people know, these things are LOUD. I have some Enermax Batwings (TB Silence) that i had on there, but i was not greatly excited with the airflow they were giving (SP On the corsair unit is recommended to be over 2.xx)

Right now, with the H100 fans on about 1/2 way, they are running about 28 degrees idle full on, they get about 27 degrees.

Any suggestions for something that has the same static pressure, and are quieter? These things are loud as hell.

I would recommend either Gentle Typhoon AP-15's (Which I own and use on my radiators) or Noiseblocker BlackSilentPro's, which I have read nothing but good things about, albeit I have no personal experience with them. They both should give you a pretty silent rig fan wise (granted, "silence" is subjective-but they will be WAY more silent than those silly stock H100 fans tongue.gif). They are pricey, but worth it IMHO.


Regards,
Addiction

I second the AP-15's. I've heard good things about the Swiftech Helix fans as well. Very similar to the AP-15's, only cheaper. Yate Loons are a good cheap alternative as well.

Good call on the Swiftech Helix fans, morencyam. I had forgot about them, and have been meaning to try them out myself (love the colors compared to the AP-15's and BlackSilentPro's-yay for white blades!).

I've been reading alot on fans lately and i do see that the Gentles made the list. Although im looking for something i may be able to get locally. I head alot about the Silverstone Pressure series (they have a 3.XX+ SP series that i hear, does over 70 CFM, not sure how loud they are though) I have access to anything in Memory Express (Canadian Retailer with amazing pricing)

I have no experience with any Silverstone fans. Does NCIX have any actual retail stores? Since you mentioned Canada, I assume that is where you are located. I am not very familiar with the area, but it may be worth considering them if you are indeed located there. Heard a lot of good things about dealing with that company.

That's what spray paint is for. You can have any fan any color you want thumb.gif

Indeed the truth, I just worry about the balancing of AP-15's, and I tend to overdo it with painting sometimes. "Light coat" is not always in my vocabulary! tongue.gif

I see they have CoolerMaster Sickleflows. I used to have 6 of those on my radiators and they worked great. A tad loud at full speed, but on a fan controller, around 1500rpm they were pretty quiet
