As far as why the Tt Riing is similar to the Corsair SP120 retail fan, I mentioned that too in there. Both are based off the same Hong Sheng OEM design.

Anyway, there are some decent 180mm fans that would go well with the Mo.Ra. One thing to consider here is that the Mo.Ra doesn't scale well with airflow and is quite low on airflow restriction so you don't really need high performance fans here. I would personally go with something like the Silverstone FM181 at ~800-1000 RPM here myself.
Well I'm looking for something with red leds.
EK vardar= nice but no led + its white. Black ones are high RPM only. I'm looking for something up to 1500RPM.

At this point I have to wonder your aversion to making your own leds... seems like the best solution, and given that you're looking at ~$350 on fans you might even consider paying someone else to do it, else sacrifice performance.

This 180mm red LED fan surprised me (in a good way): http://www.performance-pcs.com/enermax-t-b-appolish-180mm-led-fan-red.html

The static pressure rating was more or less within error margins, although the airflow was ~15% less than rated specs (which were a bit optimistic to begin with).

But depending on how long you can wait, there are quite a few RGB and single LED (red color included) 120 and 140mm fans upcoming soon.

Yes, but that's about all I can say at this point.

Curious to see the results here as well.

Ok cool smile.gif
I will just wait then. When the time comes and you can share more pls do so.
Will you also review them on your site ?
post #28 of 76
Depending on when I have caught up with the backlog smile.gif

But no, I really don't know when exactly all these will launch. Definitely not in the next couple of weeks if you are waiting for these to complete your build. Even then I don't know if they are going to be color over performance optimized.

I know I think different than many, but 'beautiful' is simple, clean, quiet performance. 'Bling' is used to 'camouflage' low performance and noise. tongue.gif

In my experience a good single fan performs almost as good as stacked fans (1-2c difference, but stack fans are 3-5c louder. The temp difference is greater at lower rpm than at higher speed while noise difference is higher at higher speed. These are generalities. The differences are not just fans' performance. The density / resistance of radiator / cooler, fin design, housing / case vent designs,, etc. all contribute to noise and cooling levels.

To add even more to the rumor mill, I'm hearing there is a square TY-147A fan about to be released.. Based on airflow to noise comparisons, it should be quite competitive with other 140mm fans. Sorry, no leds. tongue.gif

I don't know if @geggeg has tested Phanteks PH-F140SP led fans (sorry, but trying to find a specific fan on his website requires too much work) hint, hint for an index I haven't been able to try out the PH-F140MP, but find it strange a fan with blade design that usually performs better with higher pressure on a motor running 400rpm faster has lower specified CFM. 33% faster with 20.5% less airflow? PH-F140MP does have 1.62mmH2O compared to PH-F140HP's 1.33mmH2O, but that has no affect on free air flow rate. confused.gif

In a word......yup.

The 140MP is perplexing. The 120MP does exactly what you would expect when compared with the rest of the line, and you would think it would carry over since it is the same design, but the 140MP falls flat. I went back to 140SP after trying them. But, Phanteks fans don't fit the bill here - no red LED.
