Why Static Pressure & Air Flow Suck At Providing Real World Fan Performance - Page 3

post #21 of 22
I agree about it being silly that these new fans are not square, but from feeling the air (not using tools), it seems like at low rpm and low fpi there isn't too much backwash. Since you've got the tools, you might test with and without weather sealing around it to see if there's a noticeable difference. I will say that running an SP120 performance wide open had a significant amount of backwash on my 120.4 XT45.

All of the Corsair fans exceed expectations for anyone... Also be sure to dip your hand in water or something to change hand temperature. most times with the same temp hand as air its hard to feel air movement... but yes on 7v-12v you can really feel a difference. Vs a variable adujusted setting via software or fan controller that will bring it below 7v.
