Anyone have experience with Silversotne AP 123?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to get some new fans for my rig. Right now I have 2 stock fractal design fans that came with my define mini, 2 POS coolermaster sickleflow fans, and 2 ap-15 on my rad. I'm trying to stay in the under $20 range with the fans. I am not going to replace the ap-15s (obviously) and will be using whatever I get as intake on front and bottom and exhaust on top and back. The Silverstones AP123 intrigued me because they claim to "channel" the air so well. If anyone has any suggestions, any help would be appreciated.

Probably should have stated that I wanted really quiet fans.

The AP series have a relatively narrow (well, more like most everything else is so wide) cone of dispersion, if you look at where the airflow goes. For exhaust, it's not relevant. For intake in a Define Mini, I don't think it'd really help.

AP-123 has a good broadband sound profile, but the cooling performance kind of sucks. At 1500 rpm, you can't expect that to be quiet, though, but I'd guess you'd run them down? Define Mini has a fan controller, I guess. It was recently in this roundup:

At least definitely for the exhaust, you probably want something else.

Would it be better than the fractal design fan airflow? I was thinking maybe getting TB silence for the exhaust.
