[Official] Fractal Design Case Club - Page 1461

post #14601 of 16053
I wish someone did a comparison between the Fractal R1 140mm fan. (I think it's R1, I know fractal came out with a new fan version since I got mine) and the Noctua. My PC is quiet, but I can still hear it if the room is silent. I wish it was dead silent. Not sure I'd spend the hundreds to replace my 5 140mm fans (not all spin, all spin slow...under 700rpm), but it'd be nice to know what the audible difference would be.

Currently having to run with no panel at the moment:

Not at this time, unfortunately, but since you mention it I am actually in the process of going around the web to collect requests and inquiries like this to try and build a sort of petition for it. I've already included your post from the other day plus others on this thread (or at least those I could find, 1461 pages is a lot of reading material), however if anyone else here is interested in buying parts or has been in the past then by all means make it known and I'll include your voices too.

This is just something I'm doing on my own, so I can't guarantee it'll go anywhere but I see plenty of people asking to buy parts on a regular basis so I figure it's worth a try.

Definitely would like another place to buy parts from. Puget Systems has some spare parts, but not much when compared to fractal-design-shop.de.

I don't have much info on-hand for the 140mm version, but I do have at least partial specs for the 120mm R1 to compare alongside the R2 and R3 versions if that helps:

Silent Series 120mm
RPM: 1000
Noise (dBA): 15
Max Airflow (CFM): 38.3
Max Airflow (m3/h): 65
Max Pressure (mm H2O): Unknown

Silent Series R2 120mm
RPM: 1200
Noise (dBA): 15
Max Airflow (CFM): 40.6
Max Airflow (m3/h): 69.0
Max Pressure (mm H2O): 1.07

Silent Series R3 120mm
RPM: 1200
Noise (dBA): 20.5
Max Airflow (CFM): 46.6
Max Airflow (m3/h): 79.25
Max Pressure (mm H2O): 0.78

Did you take these measurements or are these Fractal published stats?

One of these days I'd love to get a CFM meter and test a variety of fans at various CFM and record the decibel levels.

It might be a bit thick for a top installation but it should fit fine in the front.

My problem is I already have 140mm fans and I need to get something on the top as a rad. Any 140mm rad recommendations.
