DO NOT buy this fan! - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Manufacturer's specs:
F12 is 1500rpm, 55cfm, 22.4dBA, 2.6h2o
compared to
TY-140/141/145/147 is 1300rpm, 73.4cfm, 21dBA, 1.89h20

Both are very good fans. Both are loverly design but look manky. I think they had a secret contest to who could use the most revolting colors on a fan.
TY-147 is same fan as TY-140 with black housing and white fan.
TY-145 is same as TY-141 in black/white.
TY-141 has same specs as TY-140 with different bearing and slightly different blade design.

Checked Tator Tot and Cyclops hoping one of them had tested both but no luck Tator Tot has TY-140 but not the NH-F12

Is the description for this one wrong? http://www.amazon.com/TY-147-ball-bearing-noise-emission/dp/B00A4QB4SW

Says it uses 2 ball-bearing instead of the "Enhanced Hyper Flow Bearing" of the TY-140.

I don't mind the color of Thermalrights fans at all. Performance makes up 90% of my decision here.

I'm fairly sure a HDD would not alter your hearing, if at all. A normal conversation with a person is bad for your ears, so i guess you should stay in your closet all day long.

I am wrong redface.gif TY-140, 147, 147A are all EHFB.
Looks like only the TY-140 has Hyper-Flow Bearing. All other TY fans have ball bearing. Only TY-141, 143 & 145 are ball bearing. Good catch! thumb.gif

OH yeah the Xigmatek XAF fan
I had the XAF-F1451 it is by far the worst fan i have ever seen it uses 4 pin PWM which meant i had to hunt down a 4 pin PWM to 3 PIN 3 adapter so i could hook it up to my fan controller.
I finally found one about 2 weeks later and it cost me a small fortune and took forever and guess what the XAF fan sucked ass it was so loud at anything above min speed i could not stand it the fan design most have be made by the same people who work on the turboprop engines on the TU-95 Bear bomber.
The XAF 140mm fans are the worst fans ever!
its ugly loud as hell and very dangerous if you stick your finger in and hit the fan while its spinning it can almost cut your finger off.
The XAF-F1451 box says 18 db on the box yeah thats a flat out lie its at least above 35 db at max speed

After some newegg searching I found these new fans from Xigmatek and decided to give one a try.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233101
BAD idea. The fan even at low RPM makes a terrible and loud "wooshing" noise while on my HSF and when the RPM ramps up during loads, the fan sounds like a horrid jet engine, far far worse then my stock Xigmatek fan ever sounded. It must be due to the stupid new fan blade design or something, but I claim total false advertising on Xigmateks part because this fan IS NOT quiet by any shape or means and is a total waste of money if your looking for a quiet all purpose fan. Just pass on this one, you have been warned.
Can anyone recommend a quieter LED fan to replace my stock one with or should I ditch LED for better options?

I don't think you are being fair - it's plain that the fan is sold as a high airflow fan with a RPM range of 1000+ High airflow usually means more noise, hell you hear soo much wooshing because the fan is obviously working as intended and pushing air.

It is your own fault that you were disappointed because you didn't research or even read the product listing properly.

This isn't meant to be an attack on you, just a reminder to take a deep breath and a critical look at yourself before you rave on the internet about something you don't quite understand.

PWM pin-out is same as 3pin pin-out with added PWM lead. If you have a 3pin socket cut the end out so the PWM lead side of plug sets over the end. Same as putting a PWM plug onto motherboard 3pin socket. wink.gif
post #18 of 28
As invain said, try with 7v or even 5v. Low RPM also reduce performance of the fan, but thats the cost of silence. You new fan might actually be pretty silent, but pushing a lot of air to your heatsink, might be the real issue to the noise and not the fan it self. I hope thats not the case though, - since this thread will be epic fail for you.

Noise Level 26 dBA(Max.) Thats not all that quit.....


Perceptions of Increases in Decibel Level
Imperceptible Change 1dB
Barely Perceptible Change 3dB
Clearly Noticeable Change 5dB
About Twice as Loud 10dB
About Four Times as Loud 20dB
