post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
...noctua NF-P12 on their TRUE coolers witch is superior when it comes to noice and airflow?

It moves 92,3 m³/h and does it below 20 dB. Why is so many ppl getting the Scythe instead witch performs worse? Just curious

I had the Scythe Kama Cross, it was badass. Looked like a v8.

Wasn't the Kama Cross rated one of the worst performing coolers ever?

I love scythe fans (that's all I buy), but their coolers leave something to be desired.

Personally my Scythes move considerable air flow in my Antec 900 and they are not noisy.

It was on a 4000+ 939. It was a much better cooler when you took off the 80mm and stuck the 120mm on it

Specs on fans are incredibly unreliable, and many times are an outright lie. I don't think Noctua and Scythe do this, but other companies like SilenX most definitely do.

Anyway, real world testing has been done with the P12 on SilentPCReview. It doesn't do too good. Regular design fans do just as good, at almost the same noise level, for half to 1/4 the cost.

ATM, the Scythe 120x38mm is probably one of the best fans available for HSF duty. Scythe's 120mm Slipstreams are probably the best case fans available.

I dont think they are better. The noctua fans seem like the very best HS fans and Case fans in the world altho do they come with a respective price and cost about two times as much but then it also moves two times as much air so it evens it out, besides... if you have bought a Q6600 and an expensive cooler such as the TRUE then i am sure you can spend a few extra bux on a superior fan for the very best cooling. Scythe is overhyped lol...

Your Scythe moves 44.4CFM at 19.8dB and 87.6CFM at 32.9dB
-
Noctua moves 92,3CFM at 19.8dB ***PWNT!

The P12 rapes the Ultra Kaze youre speaking about and you still say that the Scythe is one of the best HS fans and that the P12 "doesn't do too good" ? Rofl youre too much...
