best 120mm money can buy?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi!

I'm looking for the best 120mm that I can buy! The most important thing for me is the CFM that the fan blows.I don't really care about the noise because my PC is already very noisy. so here in order the most important things for me:

1st: CFM
2nd: Lifetime
3rd: Noise level

I don't mind if it has led or not UV or not but if it has a Blue led it a plus.

thanks!

Noise unfortunately can be an issue with some of these.

I put one of these on my BT and saw a 5-8C drop in temps. Although, I just ordered a load of sound dampening materials. Not so much of a whining noise like many fans. Just pure noise from the air movement of the high CFM.

Thank you all for your recommandation. I ordered yesterday and here's what I'll got next week.

1 x TT BigTyphoon
2 x delta 120mm FFB1212VHE
1 x Noise Isolator Silver 5.25"
3.5g of AS5

I think that 150 CFM insted of 54 from the stock TT BT fan should be a great upgrade
Watch this tread next week I'll post my temperature drop.

My AKASA sound dampenening material arrived today. I placed as much as I could and the noise is better, but, you still cannot completely tame these fans. Although, my Lian Li case is all aluminum and perforated entirely on the front, bottom, and somewhat in the back beside the PCI slots. I can't place the AKASA entirely like you would be able to in a normal case. I am also running two of the FFB1212VHE's (one on the BT and one at the rear of the case as another intake). Your Stacker should handle their noise better.

The other very important issue is the length of the BT fan mounting screws. They are made for the OEM 25mm thick fan. The FFB1212VHE's are 38mm's thick. I used some nylon sleeves I had left over from my Apogee waterblock installation kit and a 1/4" thick nut to adjust the length of the BT screws and mounted them only through the bottom holes of the fan. I'm sure you could use several 1/4" nuts to adjust the length of the BT mounting screws just as well.

Don't mean to hijack the thread... but my question kind've fits in here.
What's the best 120mm fan if you are taking into account sound? What about CFM/dB ratio? Thanks!

Thank you biomech for your fan mounting hints... I'll go check for longer screw to fit that 38mm fan. But about the sound... Not really shure that my case will handle it better, It is the Stacker 830 that I have. This case is entierly made of perforated mesh (not shure of that word) anyway it is like if I had no side panel at all. So I think thats gonna be noisy... But doesn't bother me at all because it is gonna be cool to

And BriskBaby, Acording to me the best CFM/DB ratio fan is the ThermalTake ThunderBlade fan. 21Db at 78CFM and it is a led fan. here's the link, let me know what your thought about those.
