Should I change the Tuniq T fan?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just as the thread is titled, do you think it would be a good idea? Currently I have a Silverstone FM121-B (b stands for the black fan controller they send, rather then that silver one... I believe) on the way and I heard wonderful things about them. I have a P180b case and the loudest part of my case seems to be the Tuniq, which is fine on the lowest speed but would the FM121 be as quiet but push more air? I also plan on switching the front fan (Antec 3-speed) with a Scythe fan because if I just put my hand in front of it, it feels like NO air at all is coming through on full speed.

What do you guys think?

Regardless I ordered the fans so I can do my own testing/try different setups out. I also ordered 2 rounded cables to replace those ****ty ribbons from my floppy drive/DVD. I am a stickler for sound, so I hope my choices were good ones.

That fan is rated at 39.5 dBA at the highest speed which is pretty loud. It does push a lot of air though @ 110CFM. SilenX makes the quietest fans I think they have a few 120mm that push around 70 CFM and are only 14dBA which is whisper quiet. http://www.us.ncix.com/products/inde...;20Corporation

If I didn't buy my fans already I might consider one of those, it seems really really nice, but 28 bucks?! Thats a lot of money for one fan...

Edit: I may consider (in one months time) buying two of those and replacing my exhaust fans (one on top, another in rear) with those if they really are that quiet.

Errr... never buy SilenX, they over-spec and over-price their fans x.x

I've noticed that my FM121 is as quiet as my cooler master fans up to around 1400rpms, which means it would be pushing more than the 42cfm's CM fans do but by how much more I don't know
