Scythe Ultra Kaze into mobo - power issue? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I'm very unimpressed with the Scythe Slipstream fans myself. I'd much rather spend the extra $5 on the S-Flex series.

What's the difference? Noise level? CFM? Better db/cfm ratio?

Vastly improved noise level, three times the lifetime, and the 1900RPM Slipstream doesn't even perform more than 1-2c better than the S-Flex SFF21F on a heatsink. For a noise comparison, I cannot hear a 1600RPM S-Flex fan inside a case except for a slight whisper of air moving, yet I can hear motor noise on the Slipstream undervolted down to 1200RPM. And with a 1900RPM S-Flex fan on the market (that I have not tested yet), I'd be willing to bet that there is no place for the Slipstream at all, even with that extra 1-2c.

I have a feeling that I'll probably be going in that direction, now that you mention it. The first priority was, get those temps down! The only spec I was really looking at was CFM. Next is, get that noise down!
