I did not know that. I have compared a GT 1400 to a GT 1850 running at 1400 and my ears could not tell the difference at all. But I won't rule it out . Do you know why it would be louder? I am just interested to learn.

For some reason the GentleTyphoon fans have a couple of points where a slight resonance kicks in and increases the volume of the fan. You have may have noticed when playing with your fan control that occasionally increasing the speed of the fan would reduce the noise level. None of the GentleTyphoons have any sort of resonance at 100% speed, so if you want to use 1000 RPM fans it'd be best to get 1150 RPM gentle typhoons and not have to worry if your fans are resonating or not.

I have heard "rumors" of clicking when undervolting so I tested my fans at virtual every setting of my fan controller (MCubed BigNG) but never experienced this. I do not recall increase in volume either but I might have paid too little attention. Thanks for the info.

Sorry for hi-jacking the thread a bit.

I don't plan on running them at a 1000rpm at all times, but i would like something quiet when I'm gaming or listening to music. When benching I don't think I'd mind 1400 or so RPM for the temp benefits.

Oh and the way you were telling me to set up the res, wouldn't that completely kill the fill port up top?

And I've been looking for benches of the RX240 with the SR1 240 I can't find any.. if one of you guys know a place I could find some it'd be much appreciated, I'm leaning towards HW labs since everyone I know uses them so I'm not too iffy about paying the name premium I guess you could call it.

EDIT: I did find a review for the SR1 360 and the RX 360 where the RX out performs the SR1, it's a 20 buck swing I'm going to troll forums and google for a good 2 hours now looking for 240 rad reviews >.<

The size of a radiator usually doesn't affect it's relative cooling ability. The RX240 will cool about 2/3 as good as a 360 radiator, and the SR-1 240 will cool about 2/3 as good as the 360 version.

The reservoir should be purchased directly from FrozenQ PC mods as it's often cheaper, you get better support and you get the option to add additional side ports to your reservoir for free.

It's actually 5 dollars cheaper to get it thru performance-pcs (Interesting I know. I found it intriguing that the manufacturer is being undercut by his retailers.) And I don't pay shipping for performance-pcs I live an hour south from them =D

I do like the idea of the side ports tho. But I also just saw his brand new bay reservoirs.. and those are pretty sick too.
