GOIN SILENT. need some help

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok so im tired of listening to my MATX build so i figured im ganna get this rediculous radiator and lay it down on top spaced up but i need some silent fans that will be enough for my 955 and 6970 and possibly a second 6970. Right now i have 2 120mm rads internally for cpu might keep those in also.
rad in question http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...html?tl=g30c95
Any input would be helpfull, but trying to keep fan price down. Oh and should i go up to 1/2 inch tubing or stay at 3/8 ( i like 3/8 cause it kinks less but up for new ideas)

Your best bet are probably Gentle Typhoon 1450's. Also tests have shown there's generally no performance difference between 1/2 and 3/8 tubing, so pick the one you like.

considered gt's but what about yate's. oh any does anyone know which block is best for the 6970. Ek's looks the best in my opinion but not sure about raw performance.

If price is a concern get some yates from Performance PC's in Stock configuration... there about 4 bucks a pop.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=22033

Cable option = stock

NZXT's are quite, and so are artic cooling F12's (if memory serves) and those are pretty cheap over at http://www.aquatuning.us/product_inf...20x25mm--.html

I mention these, cause I figure you wanna push/pull n' shroud for maximal effect with minimal noise...

would coolermater r4 2k's be enough? only 20db i mean... were talking minimum 9x120mm fans to cool cpu and gpu... maybe 2nd gpu some time down the road.
Plus if i keep the 2 120mm rads inside.. thats 11x120 worth of rad lol

If your going to pull on that, be sure to get a shroud, pushing... to stay silent pick up some neoprene adhesive strip, thats a lot of fan to have chattering on the surface. Of course theres little that I can say that the maphs dont, rpm/airflow = lower deltas... so its compromise.

The coolermasters are in the same clase as the mid range yates/nzxts/articools so I dont see why not... I suppose looking for a deal and availability will help make that decision.

depending on how many fans you need, there is several things you can do.

this is what im doing right here for my rx240 rad. i plan to have 4 fans for push pull: 2for push and 2 for pull

here is what im doing

i got 1 of these:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10..._AK-CB002.html
(newegg has a rosewill version thats alot cheaper but its out of stock, also performance-pcs carries this same cable for cheaper, i just like frozen)

and 1 of these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-001-_-Product

and 4 of these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103069

i hook the smart pwm to my mobo's cpu header, hook the 2way pwm split cable into the smartcables cpu extender(the one with 4 pins) then plug the fans in accordingle.

this way your bios can control all 4 fans via pwm function. you can set the speeds according to temps any way you like. i had the same setup on my d14, 2xfans for heatsink 1 for rear exhaust with that akasa smart fan. i had them stay at 1100 rpm for anything lower than 65c and at 65c they rev up a little bit around 1200, but i had them set not to spin at 100%(2000rpm LOUD) until 75c. and this was the quietest setup i ever had.

now if you are only doing 3 fans or less you dont need that 2 way pwm split cable, but only the akasa smart cable.

these smart cables are genius. they draw power from your psu via molex and get there pwm signal from the mobo. this way they will not overload your cpu header on your motherboard and fry it.

edit: also the blademaster is a great fan. its loud at its full rpm but man it moves a ton of air. even more than the ap-15's. also another thing i like is when they are at 1200 or lower they are almost completely silent. perfect for a quiet rig that may need a little extra cooling here and there

Shouldn't go by manufacturer reported db ratings, because there is no standard of testing. One manufacturer can put the measuring device 5 ft away from it and another can put it right next to the fan. In my experience the R4 without a fan controller is f'in loud.
