Sounds pretty good. What fans are you using on your rads?

I am using 2 Enermax Magma 120mm. I plan to move those to elsewhere in my case and throwing on Noctua NF12 or Noiseblockers.

How big of a deal is noise for you? Because you can get a LOT better fans than those for the same price if noise isn't an issue.

What's your budget per fan? There are better fans you can get than those that are quiet if you are willing to pay an extra $8 or so per fan.

Noise is a big deal. I prefer quiet and cool, so what are the quietest + coolest fans out there? I have read that the best fans with highest CFA:Noise ratio are the Noctua P12's.

I have 3 Enermax Magmas in my case right now which are pretty loud (or maybe it's the 2 NZXT Switch 810 Fans that I still have running inside). Right now, my computer sounds like a distant microwave hum. That is compared to my old rig which had like 4 fans which were pretty quiet. (Antec 900 with stock fans).

Your overclocked temps seem too high even with 28C ambient. I have an i7-2600k oc'ed at 4.5 GHz with 1.32v and the highest I have seen under similar ambient temps is 63C (during Prime 95). I do have a lot more rad capacity, but I also have two gpu's plumbed in as well.

I'd reseat the block and use fans designed to work with the fin pitch of your rad. Tight fin spacing requires more powerful fans.
Would adding a 120mm rad to the back be an option?

Good luck! thumb.gif

Well, if you can fit it, SilenX makes a pretty beastly 120mm X 38mm fan that's really quiet.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/4274/fan-235/SilenX_120x120x38mm_-_18dBA_-_90CFM_iXtrema_Pro_Fan_IXP-76-18.html?tl=g36c15s562

The Coolmaster Excalibur is also a possible choice, it has REALLY good static pressure, slightly above average airflow, and noise can be decent with a controller.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11251/fan-718/Cooler_Master_Excalibur_120mm_x_25mm_High_Performance_Fan_R4-EXBB-20PK-R0.html?tl=g36c15s60

Then there's Gelid which makes some really nice looking fans with above average static pressure and average flowrate, but with really good noise levels.


http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13262/fan-868/Gelid_Solutions_Wing_12_120mm_x_25mm_UV_Reactive_Gamer_Fan_-_UV_Blue.html?tl=g36c15s60

Then of course there's always the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15s, which seem to be a standard these days, however; I personally am not impressed with them because of their flowrate.

If you don't mind upgrading to a 2x140mm radiator Prolimatech makes a godly fan that amazes me to no end, but is pretty pricey.

His seat is fine this time around, I think it has more to do with his fans. He's using a fan with 1.6mmH2O static pressure, and a flowrate of 60CFM with no restriction. I think his airflow is suffering because of those fans.

I am using four Gentle Typhoon fans and they are superb. Two AP-14's and two AP-15's.
The AP-15's are noticeably louder than the AP-14. For the quietest possible set up I would use the AP-14's.

So I should swap out the fans on the radiator?

The SilenX fans you suggested I do not think will fit as my radiator uses 6-32 30mm screws for the fans and the Enermax Magmas are 25mm.

And the Prolimatech's you mentioned, they won't fit on my radiator - I'll probably use them as case fans?

I presume the best rad fans I can get if I don't want to go GT's is the Excalibur or Gelids?

You can buy screws for the SilenX fan from FrozenCPU if that's an issue. When I was saying "if it will fit" I was talking about if you physically had enough room in your case for them. As for the Promlimatech fans, like I said you'd need to upgrade your radiator to a 280mm (2x140mm) oriented RAD, but if you look at the specs on that thing it's ridiculously powerful with low sound.

If you can't manage the SilenX fans definitely go with the Excalibur over the Gelid fan, as it has REALLY nice flowrates compared to the Gelid. It's an all around better fan if you don't mind it being visually meh

You might need a fan controller for the Excalibur though, because it is really noisy at it's default 2000RPM rating.

Scythe GTs have become a standard and I don't get why. Their flowrates are average at best, and their static pressure is only about 2.0mmH2O, so I don't get why they're so special.
