Best fan for Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
From what I read off the specs its 46 decibels but I've looked at charts and still cannot realize how noisy it will be in a system.
post #12 of 24
the 1900 is 38db from memory
i only actually turn them up when stress testing/benching

Even at a low RPM, my Kaze is only about 10c under the temps when running at max - it's nearly silent to me when at a low speed [my GFX cards drown out alot]

If you get the 3000 for the TRUE, like me, I recommend a fan controller, or better yet for money-saving, a Zalman Fan Mate 2, which is like 4$ for controlling one fan. I like to keep everything under 35dba max, the 3000 is a bit annoying for me full on, but running at 7V it blends in with the rest. Ans I still get the extra power for when I do benchmarks or when I leave for a while and let the PC do something while I'm gone.

I have a Delta fan @ 4k RPM, and its VERY noisy (59dB), so I happened to buy the fanmate 2 too and I am running it @ 2200. The thing is, it generates alot of heat, and I placed it close to my cooler so I starting thinking what would be better: Keeping this setup or going for a quieter/slower fan without the fanmate "heater".

I came to this conclusion:

Delta

@ 4000 rpm - 190 CFM - 59 dB
@ 2200 rpm - ~ 105 CFM - ~ 33 dB

Scythe
@ 2000 rpm - 88 CFM - 33 dB
@ 3000 rpm - 134 CFM - 46 dB

Im not sure, but I think I'm just gonna shift my Zalman Fanmate 2 away from my TRUE and leave my setup as is...

If the undervolted Delta's perform that good, then I am getting myself a dozen. I would need to see the methods used to measure the dba and cfm, though. I suppose what you did for knowing the 33dba of the delta is trying to match the sound with the Ultra Kaze 2000. I guess I'm looking for how you figured the 105cfm. You sure it isn"t more like 95cfm at 36dba? That would make it about the same as the Ultras.

Actually what I did to get those numbers was
2200 x 190 / 4000 = 105 CFM
2200 x 59 / 4000 = 22 dB

I know it isn't exact, but thats the best I could do

Lapping the TRUE is a great idea but I read in a thread by Adrienspawn that the thicker fans i.e. 38 mm would work better with the TRUE.

If you want one with blue LEDS, the Thermaltake Thunderblades can't be beat!

Btw 46 decibels is REALLY loud.

Think one of the giant fans that teachers sometimes put in their classes to cool the room down; the ones with the metal grating around them. Think this: http://images.auctionworks.com/hi/51/50607/90021fan.jpg

If you already have a noisy case though, you may not notice it.
