Sorry I was asking the other guy. I would love to see the reports. (non sarcastic I really do.)

Hello.

Yup, its just my feel of the air flow. I dont have any professional equipment for testing fans but it was non the less a lot of work before i finally found wihat i consider to be the best fan.

If this has contributed to aid someone else in trying to decide for a fan i am happy smile.gif

it may influence someones opinion based on your opinion but thats all you have.

without using actual instruments to measure airflow thats all this is, your opinion.

none the less thanks for your opinion

It doesn't require measuring equipment to determine which one of two blows more on your face or which one makes more noise (if the difference is big enough).

The point of all this discussion is that the one blowing more on your face may not always be the better choice regardless of noise...

Well, he ran them through the rad he was using so he's got that going for him. No need to measure static pressure more than that, right?

All "feelings" aside, I'd rather know what the temps were on each one in my setup, instead of using my facial hair as the litmus test in it. Hard numbers are always better than a perceived feeling. Ask any woman, feelings aren't always "correct" lol.

Still looking for a decent review on the aerocool fans, although I now they are new. However if any of you want to see some awesome comparisons:http://www.overclock.net/t/1274407/fans-the-most-complete-and-comprehensive-array-of-tests-and-benchmarks

I highly recommend Dave's guide. He knows just about all there is to know regarding the pc fan world. And just FYI, I have come across multiple people stating how aerocool highly inflates their specs, although most manufacturers do. So the best SP rating of that Aerocool fan of 1.21 mm is probably highly overrated.

Yes I agree with you thats why i decided to spend many hundreds of dollars just to test fans and get the best one in my own opinion.

Lucky we have a return policy that allows me to test the fan and then get a full refund if not satisfied. Store then probably sells them slightly cheaper like a deal of the week or something.

So why not buy a few fans and compare to the Aerocool yourself:)

So someone said in this thread (I think it was the Corsair Rep) that you can remove the case feet. I haven't been able to find the screws that hold them in? Are they under the rubber pads? I'd like to replace them with some aluminum round feet if possible.
