Which is the best 80mm white LED fan available?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Been looking around at 80mm White LED fans for my FT-03 but don't seem to be able to find many.
Three that I've been looking at are Akasa Quiet 8cm, Xilence and Aerocool Silver Lightning. Are there any others I should take into consideration? Looking for as high airflow as can get with 20-22dB Noise level max.

Thanks.

Check them out.
I'm not too sure how accurate they are mind.

Don't think any of them have white LEDs though.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/141018327605?hlpht=true&ops=true&viphx=1&lpid=95&device=c&adtype=pla&crdt=0&ff3=1&ff11=ICEP3.0.0&ff12=67&ff13=80&ff14=95

The Akasa is apparently 20.6 dB, with 25.32 CFM and spins at 2000RPM.
The Cooler Master is apparently 19 dB, with 21.7 CFM and spins at 1800RPM.
The Xilence is apparently 17 dB, with 23.5 CFM and spins at 1400RPM.

That's according to each of there websites. I find usually that fan spec are normally a lie.

Thanks for the reply smile.gif.

Great find on that Xilence fan, not seen that one yet and the specs look miles ahead of the rest. thumb.gif

That's the thing with the Xilence, it spins less than the rest, so it will probably be the quietest. But I'm doubtful it'd shift that much air.

It looks a good trade off between audibility and air flow. I can't seem to find any reviews on this particular fan though redface.gif.
