Best 120"mm Fans - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Although the name is funky, these are basically the same thing as the low flow version of the silverstones... they also have a 110CFM version. These guys are the OEM for the ss fans.

High CFM. CFM = Cubic Feet per Minute.

(How fast the air travels)
post #16 of 27
I'd go for the FM121, I use them on both my radiators and love them. The included fan controller is nice touch too.

At low speed they are very quiet, and at high speed they move a ton of air.

For absolute queit Yate Loon's are nice, but they only move ~50cfm

How big do you want to go on the fan?
you can get 200+cmh at under 50 dB(A)
but if you need to keep it thin you can still get 150 @ 40dB(A)

These are what I use for rad and case fans also if they will fit...They aren't really loud to me and they move a decent amount of air...Make sure the extra thickness will still fit where you need them...They are 120x38mm not 120x25mm...

You go for dB when you want silence and CFM when you want performance.

Yate Loon Fans are IMO the best fans for good cooling performance and Silence when required with the use of a fan controller.

If you want silence the best 120mm fan you can opt for is the Noctua NF-S12-800 (http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=p...ts_id=4&lng=en) It doesn't move as much air as the NF-S12-1200 but it is marginally quieter in comparison.

Kitting your rig out with a bunch of Noctua fans is going to make it near enough silent, except for your Hard Disks, and PSU (if your adventuruous you might try modding the PSU with a Noctua fan). The most you can do about HDD noise is buy an enclosure.

If you want a truely silent PC for a Media Centre for example, my suggestion is to cut out mechnical Hard Disks all together and opt for an IDE>Compact Flash adaptor, buy a 4GB Compact Flash card and use that as a HD. Install something like Geexbox (http://geexbox.org/en/index.html) onto it and you got a silent media centre PC.

4GB not enough storage? Use a file server or Network attached storage Caddy to house a large Hard Disk in another room!

I know your maybe not looking for a silent PC but I got carried away and don't want to waste this all by holding down backspace!

i have two of these aerocool fans and they are great... very good airflow/noise ratio and in my opinion the specs are actually right, unlike many fans that claim outrageous flow/noise ratios (namely silenx)
