Fan advice H1 vs M1 vs U1

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Having a hard time deciding which panaflo's to buy for the black ice 240 radiator. I want to keep the noise down which is why I am considering the M1. I wish I had enough room for a fan controller in my build.

Unless you plan to run at or near 12v all the time, I wouldn't recommend and 38mm fan. In general, most fans perform their best at 12V, but especially 38mm fans. I bought six medium speed panaflos after getting advice in the forums thinking they would do better than the yate loons, only to find out I couldn't stand the motor tick when undervolted a bunch.

I would recommed Gentle Typhoons AP-15s would do just fine. If you really need the power, go for the Delta Rev3s from sidewinder, they did a fair amount better than the panaflo U. Bothe the AFB1212VHE and HE, but you need the ones with the notched in the fan hub. Unfortunately, they don't like undervolting much either, so I wouldn't suggest them unless you are happy with the 2000 to 3000 RPM range.

GTs are also coming out in higher speed models, but not much info on them yet.

Videos and testing of fans are vvvvv

If I was going to go with the medium speed panaflo's I would not undervolt them at all, 35db I can live with. They will be running at 12 volts stock correct?
