Ifx-14

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, a store going out of buisness in my town was selling it for 25$ so i bought one. Been looking around at which fans to toss on it, and stumbled across these http://www.coolerguys.com/840556025054.html Anyone ever used them before ? any good ? I know there is a review at madshrimps that say they are great for performance/noise just wondering if anyone has any other favorites for this heatsink.

First off, let me be the first to express my hatred of you for getting such an awesome deal - they go for $80 new, and mine cost me $40shipped (which I actually thought to be a great deal!

On with the issue at hand:

The fan you linked has WAAAY too little airflow - even for the IFX-14 which is known for low airflow/low sound operation.

If you want something cheap but effective, I would suggest two medium speed Yates

If you're willing to spend a bit more, two mid-high speed Slip Streams

If you want to go all out, get two high speed Ultra Kazes and a Rheobus fan controller

Personally, I went with two high speed LED Yate Loons and a Rheobus fan controller because I wanted to be able to be able to crank up my fans or keep them quiet... oh and I <3 lit up cases:

Oh how i had hoped you would reply to this thread killa, after looking at your pics in the air cooling picture thread I dont mind too much about the lights as i aint into the whole lights thing thanks for the reply gonna see if they make hi-speed late yoons in black. i may go with the slipstreams as i prolly wont be lapping the HS/CPU

I only suggested the medium speed yates because the high speeds are ~40dba... unless you have a fan controller, that noise level can be a bit intolerable

The slipstreams I posted are great because they provide the CFM of high speed Yates at the dBA of medium speed Yates (though this performance:noise obviously comes at a higher cost)

Luckily, because the IFX-14 have two towers instead of a single thick one, you don't really need the pressure provided by a 120x38 (which tend to be more expensive than 120x38s)

Slipstreams it is then, Now to figure out if i can squeze in the HR-05 ifx's into the DFI LT x48, since i am running CF i cant go into that first pciex slot

I think they will just barely squeeze in there i have about 2.5 inches of room 63.5000mm and i do believe the HR-05 ifx is... 62.5mm

I would get no less then 80cfm.
Those fans you linked are crap.
You can find some cheap antecs with 79cfm like the tricools.
If budget isnt an issue i would get 80+ CFM scyths or yate loons.

I use 130cfm scyths.
