Nonsense. SP120s are delta AF-ish design (Just not entirely AFB as it's definitely lower performance than a AFB)

Are you suggesting a AFB fan performs badly on radiators? tongue.gif It's the most efficient design in the world for radiators, look at and compare the static pressure!

ive been looking at the 750d for a while along with the haf xb and fractal r3/4 and im more drawn to the 750d. I know the fans in the 750d are sp140s and I have 2 similar fans that came with my h100I

I thought that while changing my case I might as well change all the fans to one set so they all match

all the fans ive got now are in really good condition all beit have been extended and re-sleeved, so I could sell them to re-coupe some of the cost back along with the case.
AF140Ls* The crap and cheap edition. As if the normal AF140 isn't crap enough
You can go ahead and sell your HAF X. It's a undesirable case by all means but if you're really wanting a 750D you'd kindly drop the idea ... It's CRAP quality. Seriously you would feel it moving from the HAF X (which is kindly, actually built well)
If you want a good option and my frank opinion its the Switch 810. No i'm not wearing NZXT shoes or shaked hands with NZXT for a special deal tongue.gif

Are you talking about blade design? I was on about the frame of the fan, the gapes near the rubber bits on the fan let a little air escape, you need to has tape to stop that.

Ill have to look into these further. The 810 does look good.

Don't worry about that. The ring does that for you

So would you guys say the scythe gts will be fine at full.speed and out of the gt 1850 and sp120 performance why would you choose one over the other.
My other query is would a 1a 12watt channel be ok to control 4 fans.

GT anyday over a SP120 PE. 1) More efficient 2) More appealing 3) This one is just a preference ... at least it isn't overused. wink.gif
Yep, you would be fine with even 10 AP-15s lol. I struggle to imagine how many AP15s i can run on my 30W (PER CHANNEL and ... IT HAS SIX!) fan controller

Would you say the gts will be really good on a radiator for static pressure and whatever case I get swap out yhe stock fans for them.

The fans I have now have all the wires going to the front but on my new case I wanted to split them up into their sections
For example 2 rear push pull 4 top push pull front and bottom/side.

Then for example use the electrical blocks for wiring the two rear fans then one cable going to the front.

Ill get a pic up of what I mean smile.gif

take 3 pieces connect four fans to one side have one wire coming out the other to a controller

So card1 runs around 80 when in game battlefield4 and card2 being about ten degrees lower. I dont know much about cooling and just have two front fans and a back one currently with a hyper212 cpu cooler. should i maybe buy another one for the bottom intake and maybe another exhaust ? or could it perhaps just be because its the card1 thats plugged in and perhaps used more, or even just run warmer ? its my sig rig

Lack of air. Happens very typically with CF/SLI, you need a exhaust on the side panel and a stronger intake on the bottom

Are they non-reference cards? I'm not too surprised. Going reference for CF/SLI is a better idea

Yep. Better than the SP120s if you don't want a delta

Uh, okay.

Awesome i thought thats what i was going to hear. Yeh i wouldve got better cooling originally but i was only going to grab a single780ti or 780 and instead got these badboys a month or two old for $500 off a mate, cant complain. So im just going to pick up another intake for bottom and exhaust for side and it should be alot better ? cheers
