Yes the filters block as much as a mesh if not more. Having both mesh and an air filter is crazy you might just as well tape the intake closed.

lol, actually my bottom fan is closed now, removed feet and case sits dead flat biggrin.gif
Making higher ones, tomorrow.

PSU runs passive, I wonder how but it does, guess the efficiency and extra power capacity allows it to run passive for normal loads of a single GPU PC.

That's why I bought static pressure fans from Noctua they're doing an excellent job! thumb.gif

Yeah good fans don't lose as much airflow and have a push and pull strength, problem is they cost 4 times more.
What are good static pressure fans in the 140mm size? There are too many Noctuas IMHO, hard to tell which one is for what.

I don't see any static pressure Noctuas in 140mm, everything under 2mm H2O except NF-F12s and the iPPCs.

Would probably buy this instead:


Not that reasonably priced either though and hard to get.

What's up with the Corsair AP SP or something fans? When ever I see them they cost like $40 bucks and I'm not even sure that's a price for 2 fans...

I bought the Noctua redux series. The only difference from these and the other noctua fans if I remember correctly (except for the industrialPPC) is that the redux series just have much less accessories (comes with 4 screws only) and that the packaging it comes with is less solid.

Yeah I know, they are supposed to be more affordable by omitting the accessories. Still cost nearly $20 a piece and are hard to get, can't find stock and not much in shops yet. The reason they have more pressure in specs is because they spin up to 1500rpm vs the regular 1000rpm, is all, I doubt they will magically push/pull more air at equal rpm through restricted outtake/intake, quieter yes possibly.

Noctua a-14, static pressure is much more than 2. I also have 2 sp120's and they seem okay

You're way too picky man. tongue.gif I couldn't be more happy with my fans atleast. They're quite and make an excellent job cooling my components. smile.gif I know they might not be the cheapest fans on the market but I prefer buying quality and know that the fans will work for many many years.

Custom R4 feet.
Finally found a piece of rubber just when I was going to cut some hard wood.
Not that it was the best choice as rubber is harder to cut into round shape but kind of easier than endless hours of making four hard wood blocks round.
Might have worked in a drill, who knows, rubber didn't but rubber dampens, wood doesn't.






The bottom fan does intake air nicely and this higher height helps it to have a chance to get that air easily.
The original feet are way too low.

Looks good! But didn't you say that you'll skip the bottom fan? blinksmiley.gif
