Best performing radiator fans (120mm) - Page 4

post #31 of 50
If you don't mind a bit of noise and have a high FPI radiator, do have a look at the Sanyo Denki 9G1212H101.
The build quality is decent and their high static pressure means you don't have to run them in push and pull.

I have a pair of Gentle Typhoons that run at a max of 5400 RPM. Good thing they have a pwm wire.

There are a lot of very good fans on the market The GTs and the new Corsair SP series fans are both very good. I personally have switched over to San Ace fans because of their relatively low noise and high cfm and static pressure . They are also some of the reliable fans on the market.

 

I have a Corsair H110 and use the 140 x 38 mm fan from Performance-PCS. Best 140 mm fan I have ever owned.

 

For a 120 mm example:

 

San Ace 9S1212H4011

I`m kind a always really shocked what for most of the people counts as silent tongue.gif

Above 800 to 1000rpm the sound starts to disturbe me no matter the fan. Silent for me is "not hear able at all" from 1.5m away

Same here, I always scratch my head in confusion when people say 'I can run my AP 15's at full speed and they're completely silent'. I find my AP 15's at 800 rpm to still be very audible, and annoyingly loud past 1200 rpm.
OP, if you're trying to go for silence over performance, my recommendations would be dialled-down AP 15's, SP 120 Quiet editions, or Noiseblocker eLoop B12-2.
I'm getting some Noctua NF P12 fans soon, so I'll be able to test out how quiet they are in comparison to the other fans I've used.

Silence for me is being quieter than my pumps. biggrin.gif

Push/Pull also?

Something about their bearing. Ask noiseblocker if you want the technical answer, supposedly using a 7mm gasket/shroud it negates the issue but noiseblocker has stated it before.

I've looked at the entire line of Sanyo Denki fans and the Delta line as well. They have 2 varieties. The standard type 25mm and the extreme type 38mm. Every fan they sell with a 38mm thickness needs 70% fan power for them to start and are extreme speed high noise fans. That means that they will need to be dialed up to run them at all. They have 1 or 2 versions that run at 40% and up. They are also extremely priced and are bare wired when you get them. You will need pins, connectors and crimping tools to install them. I have run extreme fans in the past which really give you massive o/c'ing ability but aren't worth the time and expense unless you plan to use them 24/7. You will always have loud noise levels coming from your computer at all times. You can't dial them down lower than 70% or they won't run. The 25mm version have 2 levels. The lower speed variety allows you to slow them down to 40% and the higher speed variety won't run under 70% power. They cost around $50 each. I've heard that they just came out with a new one that runs from 7000 rpm to 11000 rpm. At those speeds and pressure I think they will blow all the fins out of the radiator.
They are something that I will not use for everyday computing so the price becomes a factor. I don't think spending that kind of money for benchmarks is worth it and not practical unless you have good sealed headphones to block out the noise. I am running a RX 480 radiator which means I will need 4 fans and the combined noise even at reduced power is still overwhelming.
