Be assured however than an hypothetical well designed 200x62 fan (same 3.2 to 1 diameter/thickness ratio than a 80x25 fan) would blow anything smaller out of the water in every respect. When not otherwise constrained, the larger the fan, the more efficient it can be.

this true you can find one strapped to the radiator in your car (if you have one). just strap that puppy in your pc with duct tape and stick wires in your molex connector and..... tongue.gif

They easily move more air than my favorite fans, the Delta-made Koolance FAN-12025HBK/12038HBK. Well, about the same or just slightly more than the 38mm thick version, which is an actual 6.33mmH2O but lower cfm @ 117.

I have recommendedthem to qa number of friends for case fan duty to replace 200mm fans, and in every instance the GPU('s) dropped 6-11C compared to the 200mm, and temperatures were within margin of error compared to 2 of the Koolance fans.

I am going with a Phobya 1080 20fpi rad, and I have 8 of the 180s for push pull ready to go. I am definitely going to test the 180s vs 18 120x38, but I have a feeling that the much larger swept area (far less dead space) will at least keep the AP182's equal if not ahead. I don't careaabout noise as the whole point is to have some remotely located big rads with fast fans both to dump heat where it won't bother me and to allow super fast fans without the noise pollution. I will post more once get the rads setup.

I love me some high quality fans, and generally you will only fine San Ace, Panaflow, Nidec, and Pabst in my rigs. But I have to concede that for the common large case fan applications it is hard to beat the AP182. Anything truly better costs considerably more for little or no change in temps. I initially tried to get a San Ace 172 and it just wants your fingers.

Here is the AP182 mounted in a Corsair Obsidian 650D with an SGI Fuel fascia mod.
