Well you'd get roughly 17% more airflow by running 4xNF-A9 FLX@1600RPM vs. 1xAP181@1300. It would much quieter as well. Interesting idea.
Only half static pressure though.

EDIT: Or 42% more and roughly the same static pressure by running NF-A9, still ~10dB(a) lower, if the specs are right. However I really do like the AP181 noise profile. No high pitched whine or motor noise, it's all just wind noise, at least my sample.

What 92mm fans are you planning to use?

EDIT 2: OR if the specs are right on their respective websites and you were set both cases to 17dB(A) you'd get 2.3 times more airflow and 1.8 times the static pressure. Looks nice on paper.


fixed the numbers, had done the math wrong first time around

It's been nearly two years since it was updated. It doesn't support Z97/DC fully either. Voltages are wrong and it's reporting some weird temperatures on mobo, that aren't there. I just used this in this instance because it does the logging and graphs all nice and neat.

Yeah, I donated to OHM, but I guess not enough other people did, so they didn't bother updating. frown.gif

This will be an interesting bit of testing. My guess would be a good 180mm like Silverstone FM181 is better, but really only way to find out is try both.

Only having free airflow, static pressure and free airflow db ratings to work with makes it near impossible to guess how much air will flow and what the noise level will be in application. It's only an educated guess .. one I've found to be about 60% accurate. tongue.gif

Looks like it could fit. Wouldn't need to cut up anything, just use some zipties.

Well, my eyes aren't good anyway so grey and white will look the same especially with the purple light I have. The only thing I hid was the unsleeved colorful cables. But with the mounting and cable management of mine, it just blended with the rest.

I can't believe I didn't find out about gentle typhoons back then. Looks like my top fans will be ty-143 and gentle typhoon 2150. Got both options for 140 or 120mm now.

Don't rule out TY-147A. They idle at 300rpm and go up to 1300rpm. I use more of them than any other 140mm fan. I do have 2 of my 3 Phanteks cases using PH-F140SP on Phanteks PWM controlled 3-pin fan hubs and changes my Enthoo Primo to TY-147Asq (new square TY-147A fan) that will be released soon. I like TY-147Asq better than PH-F140SP, partially because it's PWM. I'm getting some PH-F140MP soon. They look like they may be an exceptional fan too. Still not as good as Osprey, but a lot quieter. biggrin.gif

Ty147asq will be on my watch list.

Ty147a is my 3rd option especially noise to performance. I have those fans on my wife's pc heatsink.

They do just barely fit, I got NF-A9`s, and I`m in the process of cutting out the front of the case, making my own panel (with 4 holes in the front for the fans to draw air from), painting it (or powder coating it..undecided) and rivetting it back to the case. Should be interesting!

Wow, you're really committed to this. I would've just tested it out how it is, maybe run a test w/o the front panel too, before cutting it all up. Just use spray paint on your new panel, and regular screws to secure it. Silverstone is thoughtful like that, and uses screws instead rivets on their cases.
My current semi-fanless testing makes me think, if I could get stronger flow up front, maybe I could get rid of the other fans (that aren't running now, and are just blocking some of the airflow through heatsinks at the moment) and it'd be fine to run it that way.

I`m well known by friends for getting balls deep into my modding and tinkering ha hah! The fans will be secured by normal fan scews, or the rubber thingos, but the panel I`m fabricating pretty much has to be riveted...once I get the fans running off of the swiftech 8-way PWM splitter, and running with my custom fan curve, it will be quiter than the ap181 and pushing more air (I`m hoping so anyhow)...then it will be onto chopping out the rear grille (again..hopefully much better this time, compared to my last attempt on my previous TJ08E) and designing a fan duct from the back of the last TY143 to the rear of the case, to try and reduce recycled heated air to a minimum. Its also been awhile since I updated my the pictures of my rig or details, heres a pick of it missing the front:
