Scythe Gentle Typhoons Really Do Live Up to the Hype - Page 2

Anyway, the price was good at 10$ each but that group buy was a disaster. It took almost 2 years to finalize and many guys didn't get what they paid for. A bit too late tho. That was almost 2 years ago now.

Well technically they're called the Nidec Servo D1225C12B5AP-45 but most people just call them by their marketing name "Gentle Typhoon AP-45"

Every dyslexic in the house say "What?"

Noob question : how do the Scythe Gentle Typhoons compare to the NF-F12 ? I'm using full Noctua for one of my builds but I have no idea if these are even supposed to be used as intake fans.

The answer is the NF-F12's do not compare to Gentle Typhoons biggrin.gif

( all jokes aside though, NF-F12 are not bad, but the GT stands out in every bit of the spectrum )

Assuming it performs similarly to the Noctua P12 it's not even in the same world.

Wow, they indeed seems to be a lot better, however isn't this most especially directed toward watercooling setups ?
I'm just using my fans in a basic positive pressure configuration, guess that wouldn't make much difference (except the noise) ?
Well thanks for the answers thumb.gif

Take it to the air cooling section ;p

All fans we talk about here are SP fans, for case fans you want AF fans.

You'd notice a performance drop with switching from AF fans to SP fans for case fans.

SP fans stands for static pressure fans, they are designed to generate higher pressure in restrictive scenarios.

AF fans stands for air flow fans, they are designed to move higher volumes of air through low restrictions scenarios.

Keep in mind the kind of pressure we're talking about with rads isn't the same kind of pressure you want for positive pressure, two completely different scenarios.

Exactly what I was wondering/suspecting thumb.gif
Well thanks for this, now I know what to look for

Hey there smile.gif

I've been browsing through the forums informing myself on which fan to get for my case (RAVEN RVZ01 http://www.silverstonetek.com/raven/products/index.php?model=RVZ01&area=en&top=C)

I want to get two fans for the GPU area to improve air entry in the area. So, the fans are supposed to provide plenty of cooling to the card and create positive pressure in the case, but the main goal is to expel all the generated heat from the GPU outside the case through all the vents in the sides and rear of the case. This calls for AF fans, as it is intended to move air. But given the close the fans are to the GPU (roughly 1.5 inches max) would it be better to get SP fans instead?

Thanks for your help!

Unless they're blowing through an actual GPU heatsink, through a CPU tower cooler, or a radiator you want AF fans. As for what AF fans are best, take it to the air cooling section as they'll be able to give you proper recommendations.

This "AF" fans vs. "SP" fans is pure marketing rubbish. ANY fan can be used as a case fan. Fans with a higher static pressure will as an added bonus perform well on rads. The GT AP fans are suitable for both uses.
