h80i replacement fans?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have looked at everything and watched and read so many reviews about this its OUT of control. I have looked at the typhoons, the noctuas, the cougars all with little to no results. I saw a video where the guy ACTUALLY used the noctuas with it and it ran about 3 degrees hotter because of the cap of 1500 rpms on the noctuas and they have a good amount of static pressure. The noise is HORRENDOUS at 2000RPM, I mean it sounds like a jet taking off. Any suggestions on thoughts for good CFM and GOOD sound, like 25b top i would assume seems like a good number. Experience with this, corsair link 2preferred. I know people will say hey I KNOW A GOOD SILENT 120mm but alot of factors come into play here especially for a SP type fan, not just a normal type of air flow.

Well it really depends on if you want low noise or performance. If you only care about noise get the Noctuas they might run a couple degrees higher but it's not going to make a difference and the noise will be worth it. If you don't care about noise get deltas. Gentle Typhoons seem to be a really good performer all around, but personally I have Noctuas on my custom loop and they do not dissapoint (not in push pull).

why not in push pull? Whats the config? Pull pull? I have heard so many different ways of doing it. The typhoons dont have good static pressure though

Corsair typically has a highish fin per inch on their Rads 20. You need decent Static pressure rather than CFM.

Try noctua f12's or Gelid Silent 12PWM. Both good. Also the Corsair Sp120 or SP120 Quiet editions.

arent the stock ones sp120's L edition? The problem with the SP's is they do not go over 1700 rpm/or they cannot be controlled via the corsair link 2 system and are on full blast as I understand it.,

Cant be as they have a high RPM and HIgh Static presure. the Quiet edits are 1450rpm. The High performance Sp120 goes to 2350rpm.

Both are quieter than the stock fans as I understand it which are based off the SP series but not exactly the same.

Not sure about the link software but you can either use a fan controller or a voltage stepdown adaptor to control speed.

After a bit of reading it looks like you need a corsair link cooling node to control other pwm and non pwm fans from corsair link commander.

actually no its not

Worse then the latter, so this is actually NOT the one to get for rad cooling. Its ok but not the best.

Size: 120x25mm, 9 blades
Bearing: Double ball bearings
Speed: 1850 RPM
Airflow: 57.7 CFM from the website, 58.3 CFM from the box (Nidec says 58 CFM for theirs)
SPL: 28 dBA box and website (Nidec says 30 dBA for theirs)
Static Pressure: 2.9 mmH2O (from Nidec)
Feature: 3-pin to 4pin adapter included; the adapter includes an RPM reporting lead.
