You mean the AF140's, right? Any idea how much air they push at 5V? That's a pretty slow fan speed for an already pretty slow fan.
post #6303 of 16063
Not sure, but i get pretty good temps with a 2600k at 4.5 and a 680 Lightning OC'd to 1320mhz while gaming. So its more than enough for the R4

If you put them up to 7V, do you hear a noticeable difference?

I found a youtube vid once comparing the speed on them at different voltages, and it really only got somewhat louder than the base silent state at around 11.5V

7v is not much of a difference in terms of noise. At 12v you hear the fans for sure, but its still not that loud, i just like mine as quiet as possible.

Ah, thanks for the response.

Have you completely swapped out the stock R2 fans then with AF140s?

Tested the FD R4 fans today, and I'm very impressed! They are actually really good as case airflow fans. Barely audible at 700RPM while still moving a good amount of air across ~20cm distance. 800RPM is slightly audible, but airflow is even better. Even at max RPM they are quiet. I think I might like them more than my 140mm Phanteks, but I'll do more testing with that. They are not as silent as something like Noctua NF-S12B ULN at max RPM, of course, but they also move a lot more air while being almost as quiet.

Swapped my bottom intake fan with one of these 140mm FD fans, and my reference GPU dropped temperature by 2-4C at load biggrin.gif Thumbs up!

I moved the bottom intake to the rear for exhaust and moved the front fan to the bottom front. I get the exact same results :/
