I disagree with your statement about the R4's. Regardless of your test. R4 has 3.1mmH20. That's monster static pressure for a 1800 rpm fan. I can tell you I can feel solid air movement from the R4 after it's pulled air through the rad,in conjunction with a shroud, from 18" away. I will put the R4 up against any 1800 RPM 120mm fan out there with the H50 rad.

Totally agree. I keep going on about the S-Flex 1600 rpm fan. Great static pressure...very very low noise......dosen't get any better regarding a balance of static presssure, CFM and noise. Perfect for my H50. Google it!!

Static pressure is much like HP on a car, everyone can give a number, but line em all up at the same time on the same machine and for some reason nobody can every match that number... Gotta take any manufacturer spec with a grain of salt. Not to say the R4 isnt a good fan, but if your going to use it, it HAS to be with a shroud, as this thing loves flinging air out all over the place, not a very good stream un-shrouded. (Also have to consider the shroud effectively increases operating pressure of ANY fan you pair it with). Put this thing up against an Ultra Kaze 2k and see who wins that match. Sure its 38mm, but it is a 120mm, and same speed, 2k RPM.

If you are talking about the S-flex model number SFF21F then i'm confused.

It has a CFM of 63.7 @ 28 db

The R4 has a CFM of 60.9 @16 db
Ahh!

Ah! there goes again, you gotta be careful with those manufacturer specs. Cooler Master gives us airflow at max RPM, but dB at min RPM...

well it would be nice if it was a standard.. I got those specs from frozen cpu. What model scyth is good? I thought the stock corsair h50 fan was 60CFM @ 30 db?

Well in this case, the R4 beats out the stock corsair unit! the Kaze Ultra 2000 would be a serious contender for 2000 RPM fan area, tons of pressure, good airflow, not too loud. If you just want to perform and forget noise, get the Ultra 3000! A pair of those and you may as well be at the airport

I agree with Agaeris, especially with advertised db...almost always BS. Read the real world tests. Yes, it is the SFF21F I'm talking about. Some sites even have sound clips so you can hear the different fans for yourself. The SFF21F beats the Ultra Kaze 2000 rpm fan in both airflow and static pressure when the ultra Kaze is dialed down to a tolerable noise level (i.e. 7 volts) and it's quieter. Google it. The 3000 rpm ultra kaze is just way too loud at 12 v unless your computer is in another room from the keyboard and monitor. Extremely annoying high pitched sound...like a small vacuum cleaner right beside you.
