Thanks!

I do have another smaller round of fans coming soon sponsored by cpachris.

Round 10 New 120mm Fans List:
  • Phobya Nano-g 12
  • Noise Blocker M12-S2
  • Noctua NF-F12 PWM
  • Spectre Pro BFF-SPRO-12025KK-RP
  • Silenx Effisio red blade 74cfm/1400RPM model

I will probably use the GT15 and Zalman ZM-F3 as my comparison fans.

More to come!!...thumb.gif

Great work, many thanks to all involved.

I joined a few days ago, I've been having some fan issues and since then not been sure on what fans to get now, but after reading this thread I have a stack of great information to help me make a wise choice. thumb.gif

If I have Enermax Magmas on my MCR220QP and they are too loud, and not seeming to push much air through, what fans would be suggested for my next step? Would AP-15s be the absolute best bet, regardless of price? If price were also a factor, what would be the next best choice? Either way, I definitely want something quieter than these Magmas, they make quite a lot of noise.

Magmas are a decent fan. The absolute best are indeed Ap-15's. If you have a problem with the sound and don't want to spend 25 on a fan controller (Rheobus or Lamptron are good bets), then you could get AP-14's and AP-13's instead. They are about 18-19 on Amazon and 30 for a pair at ncix (US website). If price is a factor, get GOOD Yate-loons (different sites do have different quality; not all are the same). I believe the best places to get them are Petra's Shop but they are always sold out. Search for the Yate-Loon quality thread and see which places have the best-quality ones. They run about 5-6 dollars a pop and should be bought in bulk to save on shipping.

Too late for a response, I already ordered the AP-15s and they are in my system running now, with significantly lower temps. Still just as loud though, and my motherboard doesn't seem to support any sort of fan control on them, which really sucks. Are there any places to buy the resistor adapters that come with all those Noctua fans?
