Thread Starter 


So i could slap this on top and it would/should work better/run cooler?

also, if i were to put this fan on the heat sink would the connector be the same as the one i am replacing? could i just plug the new flashy fan into the socket that the standard fan uses?

sorry...i'm a newb!

Im not bothered about the low db fans though to be honest with you...

just want a brilliant cfm....all i need is the cooling capabilities of a large cfm fan. That 120mm fan that i have just posted runs at 2000rpm.....surely that should be good enough. If the standard BIG TYPHOONs fan only runs at 1300rpm, surely adding another 700rpm should do the trick...

shouldn't it...

cheers

It depends on the CFM.
CFM is what matters.

ya you want higher cfm, mostly the same size fan running at a higher rpm will put out more air flow, but not always.... the big typhoon has a 54cfm fan at 1300rpm and 16db noise level,

You'll find that there's a point of diminishing returns. That fan would work fine on the Big Typhoon and I don't think you need anything more powerful. You'd start caring about noise if you heard a full speed Delta

CFM does not mean everything! The BT's fan pushes 54CFM at 16dBA at 1300RPM, my SilenX Ixtrema case fans push about 58CFM at 14dBA at 1800RPM, 500 more RPM for 4 more CFM of air at 2dBA LESS noise for the Ixtremas. Anyways, my point is just because that fan is 2000RPM doesn't mean much at all, and if noise is not an issue at all look into the new Delta 120mms, they are 220CFM at 65dBA! (remember, every 10 more dBA, the noise is doubled!)

I'm actually going to edit this. I originally stated that 3 db gain is doubling the sound intensity, but that's my Engineering coming into play. Increaseing 3 db doubles the sound intensity, but what you're referring to can be labeled more as "perceived loudness" which is 10 db. If you look at the actual formulas for sound pressure level, the correct answer is 3 db to double the intensity. (energy level)

the Z9500 is an excellent cooler, and most people are stupid to bother with the big typhoon. The cooling isn't much different, and the big typhoon is a headache to install and look at.
I hold most records in this website and it's all done with the zalman. I chose the zalman over the big typhoon. People need to realize the cooling isn't that much different, lolz. I swear people jump on bandwagons like crazy at overclock.net. It's disturbing, big typhoon, opterons, Asrock (lol)....what's next..
