Good morning ,

I can confirm that the A12025-20RB-3BN-F1 and the R4-L2R-20CK-GP fans are one and the same.

Coolermaster had originally used optimal theoretical numbers as their quoted rating of 90 CFM, however extensive external testing by review sites and individual users has shown the real world figure to be closer to 70CFM. CoolerMaster have since distanced themselves from the original numbers by renaming the fans (from Silent LED to SickleFlow) and using the lower CFM figure in their current product listings.

Current supplies in Australia still feature the original packaging, so as to minimise confusion – we had kept the original product listing specifications to match the packaging.

I have now updated the specifications on our website, hopefully to alleviate any additional confusion surrounding this convoluted matter.


So, in short, the R4 at 90cfm do not exist and those that are using them are actually getting 70 cfm...

As for me, Ive asked for a refund which Ive been promised, will be honoured.
Thanks for posting this. This will serve well to many I'm sure. +1 rep

sorry i got a response but wasn't too sure, if i plan to use push / pull setup should i setup my 2 fans cooling the radiator on a y splitter or put them in seperate slots / bases in the MB? will using y splitter ensure 100% synchronized output compared to using seperate bases?

Thanks guys.

have fun, heres the link:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...asp?CatId=1533

i expect some posts back within the next little while knowing you guys, i am not buying another P5N-D, so dont suggest it for there is not enough space for double thickness cards to be close enough to SLI
Thanks for honour
Id go Gigabyte EP45T-UD3LR , if thats the only choice. If you want SLI, you;ll need the EP45T-UD3P model - it had duel PCI-e slots. The others only have one slot.

By all means try the Y splitters in the one slot. Just make sure the load is not to high for the mobo header.

Besides CFMs I look at the noise levels since my PC is in the living room. You talk about fudging numbers. Just for kicks I bought some Thermaltake fans from my local Radio Shack since they claimed to be 21 dba @ 2000 rpm. Yeah, right, that was the day I learned about TTs reputation on noise ratings.

The Noiseblockers I have strapped to my H50 are way quieter yet are rated at 27 dba @ 1800 rpm. Push/pull intake going into a CM ATCS 840.

For some odd reason with one fan I got better results having the fan intake rather than exhausting. However, when push and pull I got better results with both exhausting.

Thanks but that still doesn't really answer my questions lol. I'm having it as exhaust but is it better to have the fan push air through the radiator, or pull air through it.

and 2nd question is for shroud placement.
