NF-P12 or IXtrema Pro fan?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi. I have a TT Aguila case, and i've decided to change the stock fans. For the back one i've chosen a iXtrema 120mm 14dBA 72CFM Blue led Fan. This one is about 0,5 cm away from my tuniq. Now.. the front one, i don't know which one to choose.. another iXtrema (same as the back one) or Noctua NF-P12.. NF-P12 has a lower airflow.. but is it better to have an equal airflow-capable fan in the front (iXtrema) or a lower one? (Noctua)
tks

The best for the front is not calculated in airflow as much as static pressure. Ive got some Silenxes as well. They are great for intake but they dont work well on heatsinks. If you want to stick with Silenx (other people hate them, but ive done tests on my own that speak for themselves) go with the 120mm x 38mm line. Theres a 60cfm one and a 90cfm one. Personally ive got a Delta 85-ish cfm 34dBa, and will move to a Scythe Ultra 2000RPM 87cfm 33dBA.

Umm...k lol

In my primitive caveman language:

Waving my hand in front of me (EDIT: replace hand with japanese fan-thingy) will cool me off better than (...) blowing on myself with my mouth.

(stop laughing)

But if you wanted to blow out a candle, you wouldnt need MORE air, but more POWERFUL air, so you would (here it comes) blow with your mouth.

The tighter the space you want to push air into, the higher static pressure you will need for good results.

(PS: +repped cuz scorpion, like, rules. AHEM! I mean thanks for helping me on my thread)

He probably means CFM isn't as important as static pressure. Which is only true to a certain point - static pressure is more important when trying to move air through a restrictive area like a heatsink or fan filter.

At least I believe that's what he meant and what actually goes on.
