Delta Fans: Do you get better temps?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Any Delta fan users out there? What is the temperature difference of your 200+ CFM Delta verses a 100CFM fan? Is there any performance gain? More airflow does not always mean lower temperatures since other components/factors may cause a thermal bottleneck.

I use a 120mm 220 CFM Delta fan as an exhaust fan for my Shuttle case. I removed the 80mm fan from the heatsink, and put a 80mm x 120mm adapter in place of the fan. Then I mounted the 120mm Delta onto the outlet of the adapter, and "let `er rip". It moved way more air than I needed and was too loud, so I got a rheostat with enough wattage to trim down the speed from 3500 rpm to about 2600 rpm. That made the noise tolerable and still gave adequate cooling.
