did you not read the actual test of CFM? That's all that matters in terms of how it performs, the actual temps are just a cursory overlook that could mean anything.

chances are you were at a wall or within a bracket in terms of performance, and the diminished CFM the silenx fans produced were therefore of minimal effect.

Where do you get the cfm ratings from? You are mkaing assumptions and not stating any evidence.

There is far more than CFM to be taken into account including Pressure, direction of aircurrent and noise as well as sound pressure.

This test is stricly a temp test on a standardized platform. IF you bother to read a thread before posting you would know that and maybe not start posting misiniformation and conjecture.

This is a FACTS thread...not a SilenX Sucks thread--Pook has one of those going and I invite you to look it up in the Rants and find it so you have a proper forum for venting.



IF you have any facts to add to this thread you are more than welcome.

IF you have any questions or requests you are also invited to participate in this test thread.

Otherwise I would aske that you refrain from continuing the flame.

Thanks

CyberDruid.

BTW so far the best fan that has the most effects on temps regardless of noise is the San Ace.

Despite the fact that the Silverstone is rated at 110CFM the 103 CFM San Ace has far more pressure and therefore performs better. The actual data from Vapor's test show the San Ace to be everything it claims...

More tomorrow...or this evening as the case may be.

Please let me sa that this is an expensive and time consuming project and if I have to put up with crap from people postin gin this thread I will just stop the test.

If it's not fun I'm not doing it...simple as that.

Be respectful. Post facts, data, links, queries and requests...nothing else...

Thanks to all who have been interested and supportive of this venture to see what we can see. And screw everyone else

Of course fans are affected by pressure and many other factors, but the sole benchmark of this is CFM, cfm is what tells us how a fan performs based on these factors..and cfm alone.

And what the cfm tells us is that Silenx do a mere 60CFM and run hot as hell.

Temps as stated are a cursory benchmark of fans, what they really test is the performance of your entire cooling setup, not necessarily the fans.

Znth, might i ask why you are antaganizing cyber? In essence he's doing all of us a favor, along with vapor over on xs. I for a long time have wanted to know what fans are good performers in comparision to other fans. all conjecture aside, i think you should just wait for him to release his findings before you go bashing the hell outa some fans. I appreciate what these guys are doing, it cant be fun.

Since CFM is the only thing that matters I guess somebody with a aenomometer should finish these tests...OH he already did. On XS. ANybody got an Aenonmometer up their butt on OverClock? No?

SO WTH is the point?

Not quite true.

By changing the fans and keeping all other variables and conditions static, you're seeing the effects of the changes to just one variable, i.e., the fans.

It's true that the fans being used are but one part of the cooling system. But if you change nothing else except for the fans, then the data collected from changes to the fans is a direct consequence of the changing variable. Change the fans, you have a change in observed temperatures. It's a simple, direct correlation.

Way to tell CD what he is doing. He is not benchmarking the fans because he doesn't have the equipment to get accurate figures. What he is doing is comparing them to each other. What he has found is that the SilenX are in the "pretty darn good" camp.

Nice flamebaiting BTW

THanks guys I was about to pull the P5K off teh T station and move on to Case Modding..which is a lot more fun than dealing with an asscap.

I thought this testing might have some impact or relevance on fan choice. I am not in the least concerned about bucking up SIlenX. Pook pretty much poisoned the well with his thread...so that's a moot point.

TBH the PA 160 is showing only very slight changes from fan to fan--not the greatest of indicators...but it did ween out a couple already.

From my POV if the Quad stays below 50C that's acceptable. After that it's about sound...The San Ace is loud but in a way that I do not seem to mind. SO far it's my favorite...and will likely be around for a lng time.

Last night (this AM actually) I cranked the San Ace to max and hit the hay.

This morninging (PM actuall) I checked it and the temps were at 46-48C fluctuation still.

Now this eveneing (or tomorrow morning ) I will leave te Silenx90 on all night and see if the temps sttay below 50C.

Ideally I should only test one fan a day and let it cook all day...but geez that would take a year...

So I have been giving each one about 30 minutes to effect the temps...that might be too short a time frame...but it does show a little something.

For testing purposes, 45 minutes/fan would be idea- The equilibrium points would be reached sooner and you still have enough time to test as many fans as possible. I would also allow a 15 minute cooldown period between tests so that the playing field remains level.
