Phobya G-Silent 14 and Phobya HP-S 12 Silent - are those good fans?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Im lookin for good fans, with decent airflow/noise ratio and good static pressure.

Do you have any informations about those fans?
They would match to my color scheme (black and red) and i can buy those fans really cheap.

Are they worth a try?
I wanted to get TY-147, which might be better, but their 120mm mounting system could be a bit problem to me.


Edited:

I've found something really interesting.

Interesting data. Could you post the link to the review please?

I'm getting really confused now... So many tests out there, every single one shows different results than others.
It makes making a decision really difficult.

Phobya G-Silent 14
140x140mm (important for my grill)
LEDS, Red / Black colours (matches with my pc)
No PWM frown.gif
Could be quiter than TY-140, but a bit worse in some conditions

Thermalright TY-147
PWM !
152x140mm frown.gif - if i want to use them, cutting of edges would be absolutely nessesary
Pretty good colours (black n white re also nice and matches with my phantec cpu cooler)
Thermalright fans could be a bit more efficient, but louder

Thanks!.

I value temperature more accurate a judge of fan performance than CFM. It is extremely hard to accurately record CFM. Many have tried, but few have succeeded without some very expensive equipment.

On the other hand it is not too hard to setup a test system to evaluate fans by their ability to supply air to a good cooler and use the resulting CPU temps as a gauge. I like to see a comparison test of fans at same RPM. It gives us a better and more accurate comparison of fan ability rather than overall performance.

So I added the RPM before each fan wink.gif As a general rule, the higher the RPM the better the cooling. The glaring exceptions are the Phobya G-Silent 14. and the Silenx Effizio 140.


It would have been nice if the CPU was being push harder so we could see more of a spread in temperature between fans, but nothing is perfect.

All in all a nice bit of work by 4Ryan6. thumb.gif

I can make them square in about 5 minutes. Takes more time to setup fixture than to cut them. biggrin.gif

Well, i dont ve accurate and appropriate tools to do that, and i will ve to cut the edges of 8 of them.
Thats a lot smile.gif

If the diffrence would be big, i wont consider Phobyas and i'll just mod the TY-147 well.
However, their overall rating is pretty same, but their negative and positive abillities are way different.

Sorry I forgot. Have too many conversations going on. If somehow we could get you TY-147 fans here, I could square them and then post them on to you. Not sure it's feasible, but if it is, I'll square them free of charge.
