better or worse; PWM fans on 240 radiator!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Are there any benefits to using PWM fans on your radiator when making a custom watercooling loop?

Obviously if you are going to be having anything much more than a 240 in push OR pull, a fan controller or multiple motherboard headers (with less fan control) is preferable!

I would say the main advantage of PWM fans on a 240 rad would be that it would be very quiet at low loads, however not sure if I can think of anything else!

cheers, krs

The main purpose of PWM is to allow you to adjust the speed according to your own liking, or to fan curves. So noise and ability to control it without a fan controller are the main advantages.
