LoL, you guys make this more complicated than it seems. The science is simple really. Fans with strong static pressure are better suited for rads and heatsinks because you want air to be pushed through and past the fins and fans that have no directional flow should not be used for rads and heatsinks. It's that simple. Don't know how you people can turn a measly computer case fan discussion into rocket science, with some going as far as using "proper testing equipment", lol

I even held it at an odd 45° angle since some fans like to make noise when they're not horizontal or vertical.

Like I said, no fan is "dead silent" to say so is a lie, the only time a fan is dead silent is when it's OFF. I think you don't know what the meaning of "dead silent" means. You're trying to tell people that Noctua fans sounds the same at FULL SPEED as when it's off? Hope you know how ridiculous that sounds.

Like I said, you lack the experience of various fans, your findings and purchase decision is based on others' opinions and since you overpaid for Noctuas you believe them to be the win all end all of case fans, such biased and narrow views should be taken with a grain of salt. If I was someone in the market for new case fans would I go with someone's opinion who based on biased subjective results or someone who has objective experience with multiple fans from various manufacturers? wink.gif

Clearly you don't understand the slightest bit of exaggeration. To take a conversation like this to such a serious level is childish as I have done nothing more than recommend a fan that I believe to perform amazingly to others. How loud they sound at full speed is not very far off from when they aren't running.

On another note, you state that I lack experience yet you yourself have just about as much experience as me!

Yes, you make informed decisions based on others experiences with products. You base a purchase on what other people say, then you may state your own opinion once you have tried them. Are you still following me? wink.gif

I don't believe I overpaid for these fans as I believe they are well worth the money. I never once said they were the win all, end all of case fans.

At this point, you must not have any meaningful arguments to come back with since you're trying to make this personal. thumb.gif

Lol I can definitely tell when my P14s are running at full vs the idle RPMs (e.g. 450-500).

Probably why I was already considering other fans, like the TYs, as I mentioned earlier.

No point, the fans I have seen and used all get noisy over 1000RPM. So just run the fans at 5v (or speed reducers), be done with it and save some cash as the same time

Right now my case is running GT-AP-15s all at 5v that is enough to cool my 3820 and my GPUs all of them are under 70°C. PCs now do not need high speed fans. And before someone with haswell/ivy says otherwise, your CPU has thermal paste under the IHS, not solder, that is why your temps are so high.

May want to give Noctuas a try, since bigkahuna360 claims they're "dead silent" at full speed. rolleyes.gif

lol, I have tested most of them and they are not silent at full speed and they do not sound too good either like that. At 5v they are quiet but so are a lot of other fans. They are nothing special apart from the load of extra things you get like speed reducers and rubber mounts.

I think the problem is that people have not had many fans and they compare Noctua fans to a basic case fan you get with your case or heat-sink.

I have all Noctua in my systems for well over 6 years now. I have tried many fans, and I still go back to Noctua.
With no restrictions depending on which fan it is, the fan can be very silent. it is like holding the fan.

Any news on when these may be available in the States? Other than paying $45 to have them sent from the UK.

I am about done waiting for them. Anyone have any good alternative 140mm fans to these? Similar noise to pressure characteristics. Color, etc does not matter to me just performance.

Anyone purchased some of these yet, and have any form of comparable results? - Or am I going to have to do a comparison against my 2x SP120 HPs? But this is on a Xigmatek Aegir! biggrin.gif
