Need help choosing fan for Alphacool UT60 rads. - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just one more question guys. For the 900D, the way I am planning to do the loop is I have two MCP655 pumps in series in a XSPC drive bay mount. I have that going to my ... I'll make it simpler.
Rad 1 - Mounted at the top 480 UT60
Rad 2 - Mounted at the bottom left 480 UT60
Rad 3 - Mounted at the bottom right 240 UT60

I have it set up in this order:
Rad 1> Bay Res> CPU>Rad3>Mother Board Block>Rad2>GTX Block>Rad1

I have no clue as this is my first wc build if that is a bad way of doing it or not.

Also at the bottom the air comes from the left and goes to the right. (Has to be that way or else it will blow my feet and will be annoying).

Unfortunately for me it's about 40 bucks to ship 3 fans to me. I'll spring for it if I have to but i'll just go with config I have now. I still need to figure a way to mount an optical drive.

There are quite a few other good fans out there. There's the BGears Blasters, but those are kind of loud and only practical if you have a high fin density radiator, so would be no good for your current rig.

Akasa has a nice 120mm fan, maxing out at 100cfm

SilenX makes a REALLY nice fan, but it's kind of thick. Given that, it does max out at 90CFM, with only around 24dba. The 19DBA is wrong, or so popular belief seems to dictate.

Coolmaster Excaliber is really nice too.

When it comes down to it the only thing the GT fans have on other good radiator fans is the highest noise to performance ratio. Noise to performance.... NOISE to performance

Most water coolers want really quiet fans, which is why they take the cake most of the time.

Edit: oh, GTs also have a pretty nice power to performance ratio.
