SilenX: the data and findings thread - Page 8

CyberDruid....well, you and I have been talking so you know how the
SilenXs perform. I'm out of town right now, so I can't do more testing,
but I want to get a full batch of comparable fans (I have almost all
open air CFM, but not even close to all restriction CFM). Early
impressions are: empirically, they aren't doing well. But the noise they make
isn't too obtrusive and they're pretty nice looking fans (though very
light and 'cheap' feeling).
That is in the thread so I felt I should put it up here.

That is what is in the cart.

Feel free to search them up yourself with the links provided above. All I did was search for any fan at 15-20 dba and 120mm then I bought one of each regardless of stated cfm as we all know that is whack. I omitted the 18 dba 120mm "90 cfm" SilenX because that damn fan costs $24.99 and only an idiot would pay that much for a case fan...I mean really. Then I added a Rosewill. The Rosewill is something like 37 dba so of course I had overlooked this gem while searching for high cfm low dba fans...

How was I to know Rosewill was OVER reporting their dba rating just to take it easy on the competition

LOL

So when the fans arrive I will set up my testbed and give them each a good run.

While no where neear as meticulous as Vapor I will do my best to keep all environmental conditions the same.

If anyone actually bothers to do the search you will see the Aerocoolturbine is omitted from my cart because I have three of them in my stash. They too were rejected for the SilenX in my search for the ultimate case fan. But will include one in this mini Shootout.

Too bad we're testing them as rad fans
The Rosewill you ordered (I assume) you probably intended to compare to the one in my thread, correct?

You want the RFX-120, not that. That's the one I'm using.

And your last link is dead.

See how influential you are--it is out of stock. That happens when Vapor reccomends a fan too, You both have quite a following.

I got the RoseWill you will find if you search Case Fans/120mm/15-20dba
It was the best I could do on short notice. You want to send me one to review?

Not sure about the dead link I will take a look at my invoice.

Not sure if they have the same motors or not, but the fins look shapped differently. When you get the fan I can tell you if the motors are the same. (Or at least attempt.)

I don't have a CPU fan alternative. SilenXs dislike my heatsink and can't keep it under reasonable temps while folding @ 1.45v -- due to ambients. My RFX-120 keeps it borderline acceptable, so if I send it I wouldn't have a CPU fan.

If it continues to stay outta stock I'll order a Yate Loon or something similar to use and I'll send the RFX-120 out to review.

I won't be able to send the fan controller with it, seeing as I'm using it in my sisters computer.

*edit*
Eh, that sounded like a hit to SilenX.
On my heatsink (either all, or just mine, I unno) it attempts to blow the air through the fins, and I'd say about a quarter of it just "bounces" off. I'm wanting to think it's from the location of the "X" supporting plastic pieces on the "blow" side, seeing as they are a *tad* thicker/wider than my RFX's, but I'm not wanting to deface a $25 fan.

Those are the ones I got. TBH the RXF 120 would have to do well if it puts out that kind of CFM. I will see about searching one up.

Newegg seems to be the only one that carries it from what I've seen.

Unless you count ebay...

yeah, i get a little ahead of myself sometimes.

I'm really excited though
because of this thread and vapors, im getting new fans.
At first i liked my aerocools, they look nice and all, yet i tested against my antec tri cools and the antecs at the middle setting seem to push more air than the claimed 89cfm Aerocools. I want reasonably high cfm, but i want a reduction in noise, so im looking forward to knowing the best balance of both worlds as it were.
