Thermochill vs Blackice Radiators & Quiet Fan Question - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I like 25mm depth because of the slimness. the 38mm fans will push a little more air at lower rpm due to depth of the blade. If the thickness doesnt matter then 38's will be better for you.

4. How do you figure out the Max Pressure or is that something we rely on the manufacture’s specs for?

5. What I got from your explanation about the greatness of the Delta fans makes a lot of sense. It seems like you are basically saying that if I got those fans with a fan controller, I'd be able to have great performance WITH low noise. Is that right?

6. Does it matter what thickness fans I get? 38 or 25mm?
1&2. That is why we are here.
3. When you multiply volts x amps, you get watts. (VxA=W) It does not say much about the power of the fan, just its power consumption.
4. Like CFM, DB, and power specs, static pressure is something that only the manufacturer can supply to you before you purchase the product.
5. In this case, you cannot beat the Deltas. They will allow you to turn them all down simultaneously with one knob when you need them to be quiet, and all up when you need performance. I did a lot of research for myself before I selected the Deltas. I compared them to Thunderblades, Panafloes, Silent Eagles, SilenXes, Nexuses, etc. They are just the all around best.
6. If you do not go with the Deltas, like what has been said above, the thicker fans (38mm) will usually put out more air to the DB than the thinner (25mm) fans. The cons are: They are thicker and usually more expensive.
