I'm still on the fence, as of this minute. It's a good fan, but they aren't exactly cheap. I paid $20 shipped for my AP141. The 180mm fan is like $23 or $25 shipped.


If I owned the 600t, I would own the 180mm Silverstone, simply because there isn't a lot of competition in these sized fans, and from what I've gathered from folks in the Silverstone case owners thread, the 180mm fans are a great fan, abet a bit expensive.

The 2150rpm model has the same blade construction/design as the AP15 (1850) right? So if it does, what is the point of getting a 2150 model and running it @ 1200rpm? Why not just get a 1250rpm model and run it at 12v?

Wouldn't it be the same rpm/dB ratio, roughly?

You run the fans at a low speed, when extreme cooling is not needed. But you turn them up fast when you do need it. I also like to leave a little head room incase my system starts getting too hot.

Thats why I like PWM, they run at about 700RPM when idling or under low load(like gaming/surfing/configuring) but when the temperate starts to rise, so does the fan speed, all the way up to 2000RPM at 75C. I like my system to stay about 70C, and the fans run about 1700-1800 at that with how I have it setup, all automatically.

The only thing that bugs me about that setup, is that the water will stay very warm, about 95F-103F, after the WU finishes for folding, and is being sent. Then the rig gets another WU, and gets under load and it jumps all the way up to 74-75, until the water reaches the normal "delta". Which is about a minute.

Make sense.. I do like the PWM function, but it can be a little challenging finding good PWM fans.

I found some PWM fans I like a lot. Great static pressure and good DBA/CFM rating. Akasa makes a really nice PWM splitter, and some good fans. I have 2 Viper fans, http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11111/fan-709/Akasa_120mm_x_25mm_Viper_PWM_Fan_w_Hydro_Dynamic_Bearings_AK-FN059.html the only thing I dont like is the color, but performance is great. I almost bought some Apache fans, which are the same except for all black and only like 1300RPM. They also work great in a horizontal position, and as Rad fans.

so how's the fan controller for you guys? I just picked this up today at ncix and transferred all my parts from old case and fan controller range is pretty small. of roughly 360deg of turn only about quarter of last bit of turn changes fan speed, from beginning till about 75% of full turn there's dead spot,

Mine is the same way. I don't care because I only use the low setting anyway.
post #418 of 18210
I set mine to full and have not tried to move it since first go. Now that I have, I note there is not much range, so I guess I have the same experience as you on this one!

At the same time, I don't care at all. Max speed and I still need more fans. Looking for the side panel with mesh to be launching soon or I will be looking for a more enthusiast grade case.

Same for me.... I have my two front intakes and my push/pull fans on the controller and turning it to high mostly (2 or 3 degrees difference) just makes more noise.

I know you are all jealous of my gyropter lol 22 years old never too old to play with toys!

edit: I switched out D14 for h70 because of space mainly.. it's so damn hard to work on stuff with massive cooler
