post #91 of 139
Not sure if they were posted but these fans are so quiet I thought that they were dead when I turned my comp on.

That's because they push almost no air, even the specs show that.

Sharkoon Silent Eagles.

Silent Eagle is the old version, you want the SE2's I have 6 of them with 6 more coming my way. The modular cable system is very handy for switching out cables.

The older Silent Eagle 1000 and 2000 use the golf ball blades, too, just not the modular cable afaik. Too bad the Silent Eagle SE doesn't come in 2000RPM or I'd try one...

They do indeed, but they are no longer available according to sharkoon. The 1500's seem to be perfect for cases but I wouldn't slap them on rads.

Fractal Designs seems to make nice fans suitable for small wc setups that my customers have asked for.

They also have the white/black scheme

I've got to admit, every S-Flex fan I've had produced an annoying whine and as such is probably the last fan I'd use for quietness. Perhaps I'm just unlucky but I've had three S-Flex F's and all three sounded like a hair dryer was on in the distance. I find it only happens when there's a certain amount of static pressure but the problem is that's in most places you'd want to place them. For example, if I put them on my heatsink or my side window of my CM690II I get the whine. Also, it happens on flimsy metal cases too. If the case has thicker metal it tends to not happen though. (I have one on the bottom of my case and it doesn't do it for example) However, the whine is so bad that I'd actually prefer much louder fans than the whine S-flex fans produce. As a result I refuse to buy another S-flex fan.

Would it be acceptable to use the Gentle Typhoons (1450 RPM) horizontally and vertically or is just one orientation preferred?

Gentle typhoons have double ball bearings and thus should work great in either orientation. It is fans with sleeve bearings that you should avoid using in a horizontal orientation.
