Rocketfish™ Aluminum Full Tower Case Club - Page 49

Oh wow,.. I didnt know silenx had such a horrible reputation. I guess I will go with Scythe them.

For those that are using 6 fans (3 on top, 2 on the side and 1 on the back), could you tell whether you are satisfied with the 800rpm version? or should I go with the 1200rpm?

btw, I am leaning towards NOT using a fan controller or a zalman fan mate 2.

As others have suggested, Yate Loons are good. Get Petra's Tech Shop YLs as they have a reputation of being better quality. Alternative is an automatic fan controller, or stacking low cfm/dba fans. (one fan pulls in air at a certain speed, the second one pushes it at even greater speed)

so even though the loons are rated at 28dba for the low, it's still quieter than the stock fans which are supposedly 26dba?

I just picked up a rocket fish and will be using it in a build this summer. I can't wait.

Get these as case fans

http://www.jab-tech.com/Scythe-ULTRA...h-pr-3940.html



I have three of those on my radiator, and man they are loud on high! I run a fan controller to set them on low (still push a ton of air) so they are pretty quite.

I am personally partial to Scythe, Sans Ace, Yate Loons, and Panaflo fans. I despise SilenX, Thermaltake, and Vantec fans.

so does anyone know what the true db ratings of the stock fans are? For being 26db they seem on the loud side.

Don't forget that for the decibel system, an increase in 3dBa is doubling the sound.

OK I just read the whole entire thread and I am sold on this case. I don't like how heavy my Armor is and so I decided to go check my local best buy to see if they have some and luckily they have 2 in stock and I'm gonna go pick them up sometime this morning after I leave from school. And then the modding will begin probably next week or so cause I've got graduation crap to go to.
