Best most silent fan for a TRUE?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Title says it all. A true, its bracket, and some fans are my christmas present to a bud...what are the best performing but most quiet fans that I can slap on there?

Scythe Slipstreams.

I used the 1900RPM with a Rheobus Extreme fan controller, and I just turn the fan as fast as it can go where I can't hear it with the side panel open. I haven't done it yet with a shroud, but I bet it would be even better that way.

Umm... well the TRUE does a lot better with powerful fans. But if silence is a must get this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185060

Static pressure is nothing amazing but they spam enough air to kind of overcome that. And even though it lists 37 dba it doesn't actually come close to that as you need to factor in both the rated dba and the RPM. (example, 39 dba San Ace at max is way louder than a 37 dba slip stream)

Anyways, I own five of those, really quiet.

I found they didn't really need a fan controller. They were still quiet when running at full speed.

S-Flex SFF21F, pricey but in the long run you get what you pay for. I would have got slipstreams but I got a killer deal on them.

I have my cm690 almost fully loaded with them and its not that loud considering I have it to the side of my desk.

All very true and excellent points.

No problem, it's what we do.

Besides, I'm bored, lol. I'm just sitting watching OCN Live and posting wherever something looks interesting.

I'm such a loser.

I agree 100%. The shroud also helps immensely with reducing the fan noise. I use that exact fan with builds.



This setup handles a Q6700 at 3.7GHz with 1.4v vcore at mid 50s°C load.
