Nice case fans? Halp!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well, i have to replace the fans in a fractal r5 because they are making a lot of noise due to vibrations :S. The case is shaking and making a flute noise.
I read a few post in the forum and chose some "maintstream" options that some users recommend.

I chose two of them because i have some difficulties to get the others in my country.

phanteks ph-f140mp
thermalright ty-147-A (i though this one was for coolers or radiators, don´t know)

Is there any other option out there.

Thank you!.

Pd: i apreciate silent choices!:

PH-F140MP is a good fan
Thermalright makes a TY-147A SQ and a TY-143 SQ .. square version of TY-147A and TY-143. These are great fans!

You can cut TY-147A to 141x141mm and make square adapter plates for them .. they end up about 29-31mm thick, depending on how thick the adapter plate is.

I already have a ty 147a.
I have a thermalright macho rev b and one extra fan.
So could i use it? No problem with the frame, it fits, ive already tried it.

But i use to think its a "static presure" fan, not recommended for a case fan.

If a fan had a "0" static pressure rating it would move no air at all. buttkick.gifbiggrin.gif
First thing you need to know is 'static pressure' rating of a fan is the maximum lift / rise in water level the fan's can produce when it stops moving air .. static = stopped .. no airflow.
And fan airflow rating is how much air the fan can flow is open area with absolutely positively no restrictions .. like using the fan to flow air around in an open room.

Airflow is caused by pressure differential.
  • The fan blades pull air on intake side creating lower pressure than surrounding air and the surrounding air flow into this area to equalize the pressure.
  • The fan blades push air out the exhaust side raising the pressure and this higher pressure air flow away from fan to equalize itself with surrounding air.

The reality is we always have restrictions on our computer fans because there are grills, filteres, hdd cages, cables, etc. in the airflow causing the restrictions.Having a fan with a higher pressure rating only means the fan will flow more air when there is resistance ..

Here is a more detailed explanation:

I'm gonna have to say the PH-F140MP, as I don't like the stupid shape of my Thermalright fans. Yucky shape that doesn't agree with my fan mounting places.

I like the Corsair SP120 (High Static Pressure) or AF120 (Case Fans) Quiet Edition Fans. I have 10 of them running for 3 or 4 years and they are still going strong. Highly recommend them.

Have to agree with the recommendations on the Silent Wings 3 and Phanteks F140MP. Both great fans for the application. You would be hard pressed to find fans that would perform better in an R5 at any price.

And on the absolute other end of the spectrum are the Corsair SP and AF that were recommended.....you would be hard pressed to find worse fans for the R5, especially at their absurd price point. The SP have horrid noise noise/air movement, and the AF can't do a thing with a restrictive front like the R5.
