Blech, these S-Flexs blow as rad fans. this is my first foray into WC, so I hadn't paid much attention to static pressure and whatnot, I guess this is a learning experience. It seems like the Antec fans I had assumed were garbage actually work pretty well on high speed, and aren't particularly noisy. Open to suggestion on 25mm fans, as I do not have the room to run a pair of 38s or 2 x 25 with a shroud. Sticking with the Antecs for the time being, also not happy with the awkward whine that comes from these SFFs.

Sorry to hear that. Have a look on the first page of this thread. There is a list of the most popular fans being used by the membership. You looking for something with a high rpm, high CFM - noise is up to you.

The Coolermaster R4s are a popular fan ATM too.

I thought that while CFM was important, static pressure was more vital, no?

With some fans its hard to get that data,,, official specs are somewhat misleadingly optimistic at times.

SP is important but you will not find many 25mm fans with great static pressure. Most of those will belong to the 38mm beasts.

Jump in everyone if Im being too generalist here
post #7335 of 28303
correct, youll get more static pressure from 38mm fans. the UK 3000 work great for me. when u get high cfm and pressure, noise increases. its preference from there if u want cooler temps and more noise or quieter system

I'd say that these Tri-Cools on high are about the noisiest I could have on while I sleep. Sadly, I cannot fit 38mm fans, as my initial effort included a pair of the 2k rpm UKs.

fit a fan outside of the case, the rad then another fan inside? i did that, i can fit 2 3000s and 2 25mm shrouds.

Possibly. At this point, I'm pretty happy where it's at, especially considering the TIM hasn't even had time to cure. Those 3Ks are loud, a bit too much so for my liking. When gaming at high volumes it's a non-point, but I need to sleep in the room where my sig rig is, since the guest bed has been taken over by my 2 dogs.
