which fans are better

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Wel yesterday I asked for a suggestion for new fans for my rad. But now someone pointed out that my current might be better ones.

So.

Now I use Antec tricool 120 mm
http://azerty.nl/8-1088-14414/antec-...latorhuis.html

And I was planning to buy

Scythe GT 1850 (120mm).

Can someone help me ?

The tricools move more air and are adjustable.

What're you using them for?

GT AP-15's (1850) would be better for heatsinks due to higher static pressure, if you are considering them as case fans, it's not worth it.

You can't go wrong with the Gentle Typhoons. I find the 1850rpm models a bit loud for my tastes but the noise characteristic is still great considering it's speed.

I'm rather fond of the 1450rpm model for it's balance of airflow and noise.

I'm going to put them on my 360 radiator.

It's just, I don't want to buy new ones when my current ones are better.

Best fans, if we're talking about 120x120x25 mm size, for rads,
are Gentle Typhoons AP-15. Very good static pressure and not too much noise.
If you don't mind about noise, then you could probably go for Deltas, or,
if you got enough space, and maybe you want something very powerful,
you could get some 120x120x38 mm fans, there're plenty!
We're also waiting some new 25mm Gentle Typhoons that will have 2150 rpm,
if i'm not wrong, there's a thread here in ocn about those, but probably we will
have to wait till middle/end of this year.
If you want to know more about static pressure and fans, you have to check
Martin's posts and tests, he's the one to ask about fans!
This is the link of the last super thread about fans and static pressure,
if you ask something you'll get your help mate:
