post #3281 of 28298
For those who have tried, how much does shrouding affect fan volume? I just got my Ultra Kaze 3000's in the mail, and just one (UK3K->Rad->R4) dropped load temps 3C! But they are a bit noisy I mean, not too bad, but if its like a 10% noise drop w/ a shroud I could certainly live w/ it no prob.

Using a shroud on the intake will increase noise quite a bit.

Using a shroud on the exhaust will not increase noise at all.

I don't think you'll ever see a reduction in noise from it.

Increase? Everywhere i've looked says the noise decreases?

Not in my experience, at least.

Yeah putting a shroud on my R-4 (intake) fan cut the noise in half

Half? I must be doing something wrong. I ripped apart an old fan to make a shroud out of it and my noise level increased.

Maybe air flow through the old fan body not very smooth?

My setup as soon as they get here

UK3K->TFC Xtender->Rad->Case->TFC Xtender->UK3K

One thing i did notice is that the Ultra Kaze's are WAY louder mounted on the rad than in free air, so that is telling me the shroud will most likely have a nice effect on volume w/ a more even and bigger path through the rad

I don't have anything to test with but I think it goes up. I tested the increase in CFM with my Anemometer. Typically an increase in CFM threw a channeled area gets a little louder. Will a PC fan, shroud, and the H50 make it a little louder? I don't know.

Have to agree here. I placed 2 x 25mm shrouds on my push CM R4 (intake) fan... hardly noticable.

Liability, what fan(s) are you using?
post #3290 of 28298
Stock fan: exhaust
Antec Tricool: intake

And a stock NZXT fan converted into a psuedoshroud. Hoping to pick up some 38mm's soon when I find a good deal, but this is the best I have for now
