Wow I am really interested as to how this will turn out. Subbed for the ride! biggrin.gif

Thanks smile.gif
@Darron is my Water Cooling Master applaud.gif
Thanks
If it's just for efficiency and not using a a bigger Graphics Card than my 750 ti sc the 200mm is really overkill. Would be much easier with a 140mm and i would propably get about the same cooling for my sysem. Not as fun though wink.gif
I just got a mail from my watercoolingstuffpimp that my ram-block has shipped, so I can finally finish the build smile.gif

Today the fans arrived!
I'd ordered them about a month ago, and all the 6 arrived same day biggrin.gif
So, let me explain.
After some measurements, I was sure that 120mm radiators would fit in the case with the fans of 120x15, but was not sure if they would serve with the 120x20.
As i'd found the 120x20 Yate Loons with a promotional price at performance pcs, i ordered 3 of them on the same day I ordered the 3xID Cooling (ebay) 120x15. If the 120x20 would fit and be quieter, I would be with them and sell the of 120x15.
So, I decided to do some simple tests (empiric/practical) of noise / airflow
For this, I used a 8x fans PWM adapter Swiftech that came with the H140-X, and 1xnoctua ULNA and 1xnoctua LNA adapters.





Here are the specs of the fans:

Yate Loon 120x20:
120x120x20
1300rpm + -10% max
20,8db max
44,5CFM max

120x15 ID Cooling
120x120x15
1600RPM + -10% ax
20,2db max
~ 54CFM max

To my surprise, the yate loons proved to be incredibly quiet, even running at 100% !! Seriously, even running at 1360rpm (max UEFI status) they were slightly quieter than 1x140mm noctua redux at 900rpm. Awesome!
And the ID cooling showed themselves incredibly... noisy ... (1740rpm mobo UEFI status).
Seriously, I was disappointed with the level of their noise. Only seemed to have increased airflow (around 20%) but the noise level was 2x or 3x times higher than the yate loon.
I did the same test using the ULNA noctua adapter, which caused them to drop from + 1700rpm to 900rpm. Still, they produced more noise than the yate loon running at 1300rpm +. Disappointing.
This seems to be a "fan karma", the ugliest the fan, the better it is (noctua and yate loon).
Now i'm crossing the fingers for the yate loon fans to fit in this build!

Good to know. I was actually looking at the Yates for me build awhile back. Maybe I'll have to reconsider them. Also, they're not THAT bad looking wink.gif The black makes they nice and stealthy biggrin.gif

Looking at the blade designs for both, it seems like neither would have that great of static pressure that's needed or cooling rads. Did you do any tests for those?

I still didn't made tests with the rads, but i"ll assume that this fans can produce an "ok" amount of static pressure for this 27mm thick rads.

I do not know the Loons you have bought but I have previously bought some. They were quiet and they worked fine for general airflow, but they weren't really that good on my RADS.
Not saying yours aren't good. Just do some temp Measurement is all smile.gif
Can't rely on Googling results from other users though. Most finds it hard to dish fans they just spent a lot of Money buying wink.gif

Thanks for the tip, i'll double check the temps with this fans and compare them to other fans.
The specs in the official site are very poor.

I did some measurements for the 3x temp sensors that will be in the front mesh.



Here is a projection of how it's going to look (the side sensors will be more close to the center one):

I did this video just to show the fans and (tried...) the noise. Sorry, i'm very amateur doing this things...

I have great news.
The Yate Loon fans fit!! biggrin.gif
Some products that i'd ordered arrived, and i made some tests to see how the rads would fit inside the case with the fans:





I'll just have to orders more fittings, specifically extensors and compact angled (for the g 1/4 marked in yellow)

It's starting to take shape thumb.gif

Are you happy with those fans then? What to they measure in thickness?
