Fans Running At Full Speed: Best Fans?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Thinking of upgrading my case and going big and when I say BIG i mean the CORSAIR 900D which will have 2x 480 and 1x 240 radiators which makes me ask the question
what would you say are currently the best fans on the market that run very quite at full speed but at the same time give good performance like good static pressure?

I favor Akasa Apache's. I recommend Scythe Gentle Typhoons if you can buy them, too.

Yeah in europe, you can try AKASA. They have a new model named Piranha now, it's upposed to be 1 dba less noisy (27) than Viper(28) around 80cfm. They might not fit in your color scheme if you have one, still doesn't hurt to try http://akasa.co.uk/update.php?tpl=product/product.list.tpl&type=Fans&type_sub=PWM%20Control

Would like to thanks everyone who replied so far really appreciate all the help. I was looking at the Noctua's seems like the NF-S12A is very very good when it comes to quietness but not that all when is comes to performance it's the NF-F12 that does best performance wise but not that quite compared to the NF-S12A. But by looking at the chart below from the Noctua website the NF-P12 seems like the best from both worlds.

Arctic Cooling F12 looks to be the best in terms of noise and performance up there. 36.9 dba for 65c is top notch. Those must be the total system noise near cpu area btw, not just the FAN itself.

I read on a website which I can't remember at the moment but it was a few months ago that the Arctic Cooling F12 fan is great but only for cases not for radiators better get something else.
