I'm after four new fans!! Please help. - Page 6

post #51 of 62
Not sure why everyone is going on about lower cpu temps when in the OP he is looking to feed more cool air to the GPU and remove more hot air from the case.

Either way, i picked up a few of fractal design's new venturi static pressure fans and i'm quite happy with them. 2 of them are intakes and 3 are exhaust on 240 and 360mm radiators, respectively. They can really move some air and seem to be of high quality. The RPM range is very nice on them but they aren't much cheaper than the noctuas. I'm still happy with them. $100+ on fans is always a tough bullet to bite though... sadly i think i've spent probably 4 times that over the last 5 years... i'm one of those people who feels like a case needs to have every fan spot possible populated LOL

Those two underlined statements kinda sum it up. poke.gifbiggrin.gif
I think the new Venturi fans may be quite good. I'm assuming you got the Venturi HP-12 PWM?
I need to get some and test them.

Thermalbench testing shows Venturi HP-12 PWM on par with Darkside GTs .. similar airflow to noise.

As for why, because the terms 'airflow' and 'static pressure' are thrown around in advertising hype with meanings entirely different than what they are in our use of them.

No, no, no. It must stand for "static pressure". Take the Phanteks line as a case in point. Their first series of Square fans are part of the "SP", and that obviously stands for static pressure, especially since the same fan with PWM uses the XP designation and with a 120mm mount uses the HP designation. While all three are the same fan with the same static pressure rating, but the SP is the only one that is a "static pressure fan" (whatever that means......most misused terminology of 2016). Their MP series has a much higher static pressure rating but this is not a "static pressure fan" (whatever that means) because there is no "S" in the name. Get with the times. tongue.gif

And, yes, I feel that every who uses the term "static pressure fan" should be slapped, strapped in a chair and forced to learn P-Q and how it works prior to making further fan references. wink.gif

Noise is actually not that great on the rather pressure-optimized Venturi HP, at least imo when comparing them to the HF.
They still suffer from commutation noise or from a badly balanced, rattling bearing. I guess there are some quality issues with this series since the HF appear to be very silent. Might be something with the IC-sided implementation of the PWM since it is actually the first attempt on a PWM fan Fractal has done so far.

BTW: any link for the Nidec GT currently being available in the EU for a fair price?

Hm, they only have the 120mm version and it would cost me about 30 euros (inc. delivery to germany).

I could get almost two eLoops for that price guiltysmiley.gif

MP stands for Mega Pressure That's higher than High Pressure or eXtreme Pressure.
You just need to read more of the advertising hype to get a grasp on reality. biggrin.gif

Sadly, anyone who believes any part of these ciarlatano / doyll posts has read far too much advertising hype and too little P-Q and how airflow and static pressure specifications relate to real world use.

Gentle Typhoon fans are all 120mm. I have never seen or heard of a 140mm GT.

Only 120mm?
Ok, thats lame...

LOL
I don't know of a Nidec-Servo 140mm fans. They make a square 127×38mm fan and some rounded 172×150×51mm fans

Yup, that's all they make.

The 140mm Vardars are seen by many as a suitable replacement. Sadly......I have yet to have have a pair of Vardars without issues (only had pre-release samples), so I really can't say first hand.
