H70 Comments/Suggestion on Fans I picked

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, first time I'm posting on here.

Here's the situation, I'm building a new system and grabbed a H70. Apparently, the H70 requires more air pressure and cfm than many other closed loop system from my understanding.

I've been reading a few reviews/boards and generally speaking the GT AP-15 name comes up very often as a replacement for the original H70 fans. Although I'm thinking i'd like something that performs a little better than those from the bench i've read...but I'd like the noise level to remain around par or lower than the stock fans.

So 40 dBA is pretty much the limit i've decided upon....(So that pretty much eleminates Delta and a few others)

After some research I found the Cooljag Everflows:
3.26 mmH2O , 110.03 CFM , 39.5 dB(A)
http://www.cooljagusa.com/productshow.asp?id=195

Those specs seem pretty good to me, if not quietest...

So anyway, I'm looking for comments/suggestions both on the Cooljag fans and other good fans that would more or less fit my criterias.

Well, it deffinitely isn't quiet But there's far louder out there...

Thats the main point that led me to post here. I'm hoping to maybe find a fan that has decent cfm and air pressure but at a slightly lower dB rating. I don't really mind paying a higher price if it suits my needs....

But I've got to be careful about the air pressure ratings, in many case where I read about quieter fans they have poor or average air pressure and that apparently doesn't work too well with the h70.

(Also posting because I haven't heard of Cooljag in general, so I don't know anything about the brand and their fans.)

Recommend finding some reviews on 120mm fans, ton out there. Just be warned that fan companies don't always tell the truth when it comes to CFM and dB ratings

Yeah thats what I've been doing, I hear ya...hence why I came to ask people's opinion on the fans since I dont always trust what the manufacturer says.

Just came upon another fan that could possibly be good, and likely quieter...

Akasa Viper AK-FN059:
83.63 CFM, 2.98 mm H2O, 28.9 dB(A)

afk-fn059

While these have lower CFM, they're still quite a bit more powerful and quietter than the stock h70s.

(Unless the numbers I got from the reviews are wrong, H70's stock fans should be:
2000 rpm, 61.2 cfm, 2.2 mmH2O, 31.5 dBA at max speed )

Ya I have heard the stock H70 fans and they don't push that much air for how loud they are... but I cant tell you the rating because I don't have a way to measure db nor do I have access to a H70 everyday.

I am a fan of Xigmatek fans, but they don't have the CFM you are looking for but they are SUPER silent that is why I like them, nothing I have needs 80+ CFM and a annoying fan to come with that CFM rating.

Thanks for for your advices and taking time to reply Nick, i'll keep note of those fans for future use in case I find the Akasa ones too loud... After reading some more I decided to order those (Akasa vipers) for now.

I'll see if I can fit some fan shrouds in there as well, although the h70 rad and 2 of those fans will already make for a pretty thick assembly heh.

Static pressure seems amazing,which you'll need with a rad,noisy though,i personally would have chosen Akasa Apache's,good static pressure and quiet,in my opinion there better than gentle typhoons.They have a lower cfm,but thats not too important on a radiator.

Yeah, thats why I switched to the Akasa Viper which are quite a bit quieter, lower CFM but just about the same pressure.
