Some questions about Fans and Radiator

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Which of these two fans "120mm" have the best performance and quiet operation, the choice is very wide and I do not know which one to choose. I will use this radiator "Alphacool NexXxos UT60" but I do not know how to install, front pull or push as above? Thanks

From what I understand the AP-15 are one one the best fans on radiator I almost got some myself but decided to go with the AP-29 that are 3000 rpm compared the AP-15 1850 rpm. But you have to do extra wiring in order to get the OWNer to work. They cool excellent but are loud after 2000 rpm. Kind of still want to get the AP-15 to compare.

Gentle Typhoon AP-15s with a fan controller to control speeds or AP-14s if you need to run them at full speed all the time are unmatched in a balance of silence & performance on a rad.

Push-pull (fans on top and bottom) will give you performance increases of 20-30% over fans in just push or just pull. Since there are only moderate differences in performance between rads of different thicknesses, you are MUCH better off performance-wise to go with a thinner rad in push-pull than a thicker rad in just push or pull. If you have the space for it, and can afford the cost of the extra fans, by all means go with a push-pull fan configuration on your rad.

I think after this response will open up new horizons smile.gif this option in push / pull is a good solution, which radiator that offers good performance and space needed installed at the top into the Fractal Design Arc XL?

Thanks
