Yeah, I use imageshack for my image hosting, or you can simply attach them in your post as well and they will show up as thumbnails.

Noise Blocker M12-S3HS

Special thanks to SeeingRed for sponsoring this fan.

This fan has been on top on some of the open air type fan testing, so I was curious to see how it does on a radiator. It does very well, not quite to GTs in noise level, but really good noise quality.

NOISE LEVEL
Very good, about 1dbA lower than the yate medium across the board, and better than average amongst all fans tested.

NOISE QUALITY
Extremely good. Good smooth sound, no motor ticks, no resonance issues, fairly smooth air sound.

OVERALL
While not at the top for noise level it is very good, and the noise quality is really good regardless of the voltage applied. I'll give it a thumbs up for overall goodness.

If you upload to imageshack, just copy and paste the code from the "Forums" field. You first need an account, then upload the picture, then click the little blue "i" next to the thumbnail that shows up. Then uncheck the "Include Details". Then click in the "Forums:" field so that it highlights the how field. It should start with IMG in brackets in front and /IMG in brackets in back. The do a Control plus C for copy. Then go in your post and press Control plus V for paste.

You'll get it, just keep trying.

Another method* is to upload the image, click View Full Size, copy the address in the URL bar, and paste it here with the mentioned IMG tags.

*Personally I highly prefer this so that if you mis-click, you don't open a new page. The forum has an auto-resizing feature that you can enable if the dimensions are overwhelming, too.

San Ace 9S1212H4011 25mm High Speed

Special thanks to SeeingRed for sponsoring this fan..

I've always admired the industrial quality the 38mm fans seem to have, so I was pretty excited to see that packaged in a 25mm version. I have yet to test a 38mm fan that doesn't tick to some degree when undervolted, so could it be possible that this will be an ultra high speed fan with San Ace quality and no motor tick when undervolted? Sure is...

NOISE LEVEL
Came in about .5 to 1dbA higher than the yate medium and higher than average compared to the whole pack of fans up to 2000RPM. However in comparison with the previous two 38mm 3000RPM fans the UK3 and PanafloU, it had about the same noise level...about average for an ultra high speed fan.

NOISE QUALITY
Unlike most ultra high speed fans that are typically 38mm in thickness and have annoying motor tick noises when undervolted, this fan is exceptionally smooth for an ultra high speed fan. Overall the noise quality is fairly impressive, you really don't hear any motor noise, it seems the noise all comes from the fan blades themselves in the form of an air/blade/turbulence type noise. I'd say very good noise quality compared to 25mm fans, and exceptional noise quality compared to all other fans capable of 2500RPM. This is the one fan I could see using in ultra high speed 2500RPM and still being happy with the noise quality when undervolted.

OVERALL
While this fan may actually record higher than average noise level numbers, the noise quality is exceptionally good. It would be my first pick so far if looking for a fan with ultra high speed fan performance that needs to undervolt well at the same time. It's sort of a hybrid between your typical 25mm fan and an ultra high speed 38mm fan without the motor tick problems most 38mm fans seem to present.

I give it a thumbs up for being the strongest fan tested so far that has very good noise quality (no motor tick). I'm also going to give it a thumbs up for it's industrial qualities and smooth motor free of any irregularities or resonance issue.

San Ace 9S1212M401 25mm Medium Speed

Special thanks to the finisher for sponsoring this fan..

The is very similar to the 9S1212H4011 except it turns at a lower speeds.

NOISE LEVEL
It's fairly close to the yate medium, very slightly higher at slower speeds and slightly lower at higher speeds. Relative to the rest of the fans tested so far it's about average.

NOISE QUALITY
I think 4,5,6V was about average and 7-12V was very good. Generally has a good smooth sound without any resonance or motor ticks. The lower volts just had a little roughness compared to the higher range is all, but generally a good smooth sound of air/wind/turbulence for the most part and nothing obvious or sharp like a motor tick or resonance.

OVERALL
It's a very well built industrial quality fan with about average noise level and average to better than average noise quality.

Yate Loon D12SM12 SWC

This fan was sponsored by RatDog. I made the purchase from my fan fund that he graciously provided me.

All my previous yates had been purchases from Petra's Tech Shop from a while back as it was said that they carried the "Better" yates. This sample was ordered from Sidewinderscomputers (SWC) as a quick test sample, to see if there was any difference between my baseline fan and a new sample from a different store. I have seen some variations in the fan from other stores, such as straight vs curved blades, etc, but I personally never dug any deeper than that...I simply made all my yate purchases from PTS.

When OldChap sponsored the Delta fan (yet to be tested), I figured I'd slip in this sample to save a little on shipping.

I felt it would also be good to just revisit where this fan sits amongst the mass of lines that has developed over the previous 40 or so fans tested in this round.

NOISE LEVEL
Every bit as good as the PTS yate medium I have been using as my calibration check fan between batches of tests. This is a brand new sample and my PTS fan has seen a few tests by now, so any difference here could very well be new vs slightly used. For all practical purposes, the same which is good.

Relative to the mass of fans tested so far, it's about average to better than average.

NOISE QUALITY
Very good smooth sound absent of any obvious motor noises such as ticking or whining. Also not a hint of any resonance or other noise other than simply air movement. Noise quality is always somewhat subjective, but when I listen to the fan and think about the cost of this fan, it's downright impressive. Every other fan in a similar price range has had motor ticking noises, but not this one...it competes with fans many times it's cost.

OVERALL
Without a doubt, the best value ($5.99) fan out there along with the yate SL or slow speed. I'd even take it further than that and say it's right there with the best of the best when used in really slow speed applications of 1000RPM or lower.
I'll give this fan a thumbs up for holding the best value fan by a long shot.

This is an OEM fan, there are not any sleeved wires, no screws, no gaskets, no fancy colored packaging, not much of anything....
What you get is one very good fan at an exemplary price..
