Picking fans to replace my Ultra Kaze

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Realizing that I need ball-bearing fans or my fans will keep failing because of how I have them mounted, I need to decide on what fans to buy.

I know that San Ace and Panaflo fans use ball-bearings. I think Delta might use them as well but I'm not sure.

The fans I'm replacing are Sycthe Ultra Kaze 3000's.

Anyone know where I could find a rundown of various fans, maybe a side by side comparison.

I'd like to replace them with something that is at least the same, preferably more CFM (>130). But preferably not something terribly louder, so yes, I do believe the 220CFM Delta is out of the question

Also on an unrelated note, has anyone here had experience with the 1/2" ID - 5/8" OD Tygon tubing? I might be trying it out later this month when I drain/clean my loop. I heard it kinks very easily due to the small tube wall size.

I think all Deltas are ball bearing, I'd check to make sure..Delta EFB1212SHE 120x38mm Trip Blade ..There not much louder then what your using now and they are high pressure fans, perfect for rads..The only one here using them that I know of is By-Tor, you could ask him about noise level and tone.

That looks like a nice fan. I'm surprised it can push that much air with only 3 blades But they are really big too

I just wish they had the MTBF listed in specs.

Its the pitch of the blades to, those really dig in. I don't know off hand there life span, you might try looking at the Delta website.

MTBF for EFB series is 50k hours. I'm pretty sure.

Sanyo Denki San Ace 1011. I got these and they are a lot better than my Ultra Kazes, they can undervolt properly without letting out a whining sound like my Ultra Kazes did. They have a lot more static pressure than Ultra Kaze 3000RPM yet can be ran at a slower RPM, thus being quieter. Also because of the larger amount of static pressure these will be great for rads.

Yes, they do cost a lot but this is one of the situations where you get what you pay for. So far everyone who buys these fans finds them worth the price. (ordered my third one yesterday)

EDIT: If you are concerned about price either getting a Panaflo or Delta is a good choice.

I might keep those Sanyo fans in mind in the future, but I think it's a little out of my budget at the moment :S

I might have to think about my fan controller setup too... Daisy chaining 2 or more fans onto one out is probably not a good for the controller or fan performance <.<

Sans Ace, EMB Papst, and Panaflo are great investments because they never break. My friend has a couple of Sans Ace and Panaflos in his servers that have been running non stop for 5 years now with occasional reboot breaks and it is still going strong.
