I would have thought someone using a phone to view the thread would be keenly aware of that one considering it was made for mobile users.

Tried it from my fan controller and the molex adapter that comes with the fan.

Its a shame as it looks great and pushes loads of air but sounds horrible.

The two fan filters that came are good though so that's something i guess

I've seen several people complain about the SP 200mm fans. I have one here that works fine, but others have had problems, and some people have had problems with multiple 200mm SP fans, not just one.

I use scythe slipstream pwm fans on my H100 and I find they work very well. Mine are the 1900 rpm 110 cfm versions.

Yeah, I think Krullmeister got like 4 of them with that problem. Scary.

As I've mentioned before, I own one that works fine.

I use two deep cool sf120's by logysis computer, they are rubber fans and are extremely quiet, they push a lot of air and they only cost like 21 dollars. They replaced my sp120's and I don't regret it one bit. Got two more for the side panel.

Yep. And on top of those problems 3/4 died as well so I'm not entirely sure about the quality of those fans... mad.gif

I have the non pwm version of these and I absolutely love them! Same / slightly better performance than the Noctua NF-S12b and they are quieter! biggrin.gif

Definitively my favorite case fan.

Looked at PWM fans, ended up getting some Akasa Piranhas. Much quieter than the stock 120 that came with the case...



Have had Spectre Pro 200 & 230mm (1 each), no problems so far with either...
post #8997 of 18193
thanks for the suggestions guys smile.gif These are the only fans my local computer store sell, are any worth getting for a side intake?

Akasa Apache PWM Fan - 120mm ***Black Edition***

Coolermaster Excalibur High End Fan - 120mm (D'ont think its PWM)

Sharkoon Silent Eagle 1000 - 120 mm

Alternatively i could hook the AP-15 up to my fan controller and stick a temp probe in the top graphics card backplate and ramp the fan up as temp increases as the software allows this. The AP-15 is just hard to get running quietly without making a whistling noise when idle. 1300RPM is the maximum before the whistling starts but i dont mind so much when my graphics cards are under load and ramping up

Well I can tell you this. Don't buy the excalibur! biggrin.gif

That thing is loud as hell. Have two laying around at home that I will never ever use again due to the sound level. (Actually got them from a friend who couldn't stand them either).

I have heard pretty good things about the Apache so that would be my choise out of the three.

thanks for the advise mate.

I have successfully managed to ramp my AP-15 up and down according to the temperature probe wedged into the top graphics card backplate thumb.gif The whistling noise of the AP-15 is somewhat annoying but it works well.

If i can find a suitable replacement that doesn't whistle and isn't too loud to apply the same profile i'd consider it.

I have been a big fan of the Akasa fans like the Pirahna, Apache, and Viper fans. I have 2 Pirahnas, 4 Apaches, and 4 Vipers. I havnt had any problems with any of them other than not being able to remove the fan blades on the Apaches, while I can easily do it on the other two types. Not sure why since they are all basicly the same fan. But they do have great static pressure and are nice a quiet. And with PWM, they are pure win in my book.

I have 6 of the AP-00 fans, the 2150RPM model from the group buy, and they make a whistling sound. But thats because I have them up against some mesh on my side panel, and when I put the filter on they dont make the whistling sound anymore. Can you try to cut out any mesh, that my reduce or eliminate the sound.
