140mm Fans for high FPI radiator?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Greetings,

I'm searching for the right fans for quiet a while now. I have a NZXT Kraken X62, mounted into the front of my case (Phanteks p400s), so it's used as intake. The stock fans are "okay" at low RPM, but they don't really push that much air into the case, which kinda get's problematic at the moment, so I'm searching for an alternative.

Some considerations:

- I managed to get two eLoop B14-PS fans, but apparently they don't offer enough static pressure for the high FPI radiator. They perform worse than the stock AER-P plus they get quiet noisy too, when under high RPM.

- From what I've read over the internet, the Noctua NF-A14 Industrial PPC2000 get's recommended a lot, but they seem to get very loud and I'm not sure how they perform at lower RPMs.

- Also there are EK Vardars which seem noisy too, the BeQuiet Silence Wings 3 which seem to be reasonably loud but I'm not sure about the performance.

- Maybe a Push/Pull setup would be better overall?

If anyone got some suggestions/ data I can further crawl through, that would be awesome.


Ps.: Some further information if you're not familiar with that AIO, the radiator is a 280 dual with 24fpi and a thickness of 30. I have no other mount options than front.


Thanks in advance!

Noiseblocker eLoops are good at low rpm. Corsair ML are ok as well but really excel in the low noise department at low rpm. I'd say an ML 2 pack is a good balance between price, noise, and performance.
