Case Airflow Suggestions? CPU air cooling suggestions? - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Thread Starter 
So it looks like I am looking @ about 20$/Gentle Typhoon. Is this the best price/performance? Should I go ahead and buy the 5? (Rear, front, side, front #2, and 2nd for push/pull on hyper 212+)
I am curious if the second fan AlaskaFox suggested will even be mountable on the HDD rack...


Also, anyone have any suggestions for either North/South or East/West(for the Hyper 212+)?

zip ties, velcro will work great. East west works best imo.

I second this. Zipties, or twist ties are a ghetto modders favorite tool. The HDD bay has plenty of holes to make this possible.

Sorry i dont know much about those specific fans. What you want to look for is the best CF rating compared to RPM compared to DB rating. CF if the amount of airflow. The more airflow you have the better. if you can get more airflow at 1000 rpm than another fan at the same rpm get the on with the higher CF rating.

The lower the rpm the less likely the fan will be noisy.

Also the Db rating will tell you how loud it is. if you can get a good CF from a low rating Db the RPM wont matter as much.

Essentialy you get what you pay for but there are exceptions.

Don't forget about static pressure either, which is why i love the gentle typhoons they are great for noise and cfm and they have a lot of Static pressure which makes them great for rads and heatsinks, they work wonderfully as a case fan too.

you know i never paid much attention to that.

Would you mind explaining in brief what static pressure is and what it does for airflow?

Trying to kill me now? I haven't slept in a day and a half and I fail at describing stuff normally but here i go.
Your fan grill, rads heatsinks all create resistance, which take down the effectiveness of the fan, The better the static pressure the more the fan keeps it's rating up.

Haha sweet. Thanks guys. I went ahead and ordered a couple of the 1850 RPM Gentle Typhoons and a Hyper 212+. I will order more of the Gentle Typhoons if I like what I see.

Just FYI, the fan I have on my CPU heatsink is a Gentle Typhoon. So if you remember how that looked on Saturday, that's the fan. While you can get better CFM fans, they are almost always much more noisy and some almost require a fan controller to keep the noise at an acceptable level. The Gentle Typhoons seem to have a good ratio between the two. They are also very solid so you don't have to worry about fan fins flying off with a single bump like your other fan.
