Round 6 Fan Testing (Working Thread) - Page 40

post #391 of 476
Nice review. Narrowed my choices for budget fans between the Yate Loon Petra's and the Arctic Cooling F12 for my case and H70 fans.

Have you ever test the difference between unpainted and painted fan blades? Seeing if the added weight or smoother surface make any difference?

I would be interested in this as well - do the fans become less powerful/efficient if painted (I have seen lots of GT15's painted white)

Searching for some powerful 120mm and 230mm fans for my CM ATCS 840, any suggestions? Price and noise is not an issue as log as they can be controlled.

Deltas/Panaflos/San Aces for the 120mm. Not sure on the 230mm parts.

Delta AFB1212VHE revision 3 from sidewinders would be my ultra high speed fan of choise, but it has to be the latest revision with the notches in the fan hub. The older revisions with a smooth hub are more average performers, but the new revision was in a league of it's own.

Wow what a nice topic! I have a few questions I think you guys here can really help me out. I have a really not restrictive radiator (XSPC 360). I was looking for the GT-AP15 back then but they where out of stock everywhere, so I've gone with Push-Pull 6x Yates SMs from PPCs, I use then straight to the power supply (@12v full time). I'm considering adding a second (XSPC 360) radiator.

The options:

1) Just add the second radiator and put 3 of my existing fans on each rad
2) Buy 6 GT-AP15 and put 3 on each radiator
3) Buy 6 more Yates SM from PPCs and use 2 radiators in Push Pull

What kind of performance increase can I expect from those options? My loop is one 655-B (XSPC dual bay reservoir for lailing D5) , Apogee XT (I7930@4.2Ghz), EK-FC5970 (@1000/1200) and the rad.

I do care a lot about noise, 6x Yates SMs are fine for me but I'm afraid that going to 12x things can get over my threshold of "aceptable", 12x GT-AP15s are out of question ($$$), I'm afraid that just adding the second rad with 3x Yates on each rad the performance increase would be too low.

I'm curious about the diference in performance and noise ratio of 2 rads with 3x fans each vs push-pull (6x fans) performance on a single rad. This is my very first build and to be honest my WC is the only one I've ever seen (living at Brazil sucks ¬¬) and I've build it straight with 6x fans so I don't know how it would sound with 3 fans only on a single rad.

From my under standing you don't gain a lot from push/pull if you have good fans, plus the RX's have very good performance with lower CFM's. I'm sure you will do just fine with the fans that you have. 2 360 rads will be overkill for your loop anyways, you may not see that much of an improvement even if you added a 480 to the loop. Please fill out your system spec's in your user CP.

Has anyone sent in a new Corsair H60 fan to test? 1700rpm, 74.4CFM, 3.2mm H2O is what it says on the box. I'm planning on replacing it with a Ultra Kaze 2000rpm that I've had laying around in the next day or so...

Btw, Ultra Kaze 2000 or a GT-15? What about a Ultra Kaze 2000 vs GT-2150?

Awesome thread, keep up the good work, Martinm210

I registered, because I need help with a decision

So currently my case fans configuration is as follow:
Top: 1x Coolermaster A14025-10CB-3BN-F1 140mm and 1x Yate Loon D14SL-12 140mm both exhaust
Back (top) - Coolermaster Silent Fan 120 SI1 120mm exhaust
Front (bottom) - 1x Coolermaster A14025-10CB-3BN-F1 140mm intake
Left side - 1x Yate Loon D12SL-12 120mm exhaust
HDD cage - 1x Yate Loon D12SL-12 120mm blowing at the rear of the video cards

Considering the fact that 90% of the time all my fans are reduced to 600-700rpm via a fan controller I'm looking to make my system as quiet as possible with the maximum airflow possible.

1 - I want to replace my 3x 120mm case fans, but can't decide on whether it is worth to invest in Gentle Typhoons 1850rpm (£13) or Arctic Cooling F12 (£3.90)
I realize the typhoon are the best fan in this category, but the F12 seems not bad at all, considering it is more than 3 times cheaper.

2 - Let's pretend I've made my choice, do you think it is reasonable to change the top 2x and front 140mm fans with 120mm fans (either typhoons of F12s)?

3 - Any other recommendations?

Thank you

The difference and benefits of the typhoons doesn't really stand out until you get above 1000RPM, and particularly in the 1800RPM range.

Below 1000RPM, it get's difficult to measure differences between fans and many are good.

I have yates dialed down to 900RPM using the sunbeam rheosmart during low load use and it's very nice and quiet.

I would recommend many fans below 1000RPM, many are very good. The GTs just stand out in the 1000-1800RPM range and particularly in the 1400-1800RPM range.

The F12's are good too, because you can actually run them via their own built in PWM controllers and their own daisy chain feature similar to the sunbeam rheosmart except you don't need the controller to do it.

If you really want silence in fans AND power, dynamic throttling is the way to go. I've just started experimenting with it myself, but definitely hook. No way I'll ever run fans at full speed using manual fan controls again..
