Say "Hello!" to a brand new Air cooler from AC - Page 4

post #31 of 42
how many noctua fans did you have? I would say 0
you do realize that all of them meant to be silent fans? and I meant really silent?

very high RPM? lol
biggest RPM has 80mm fan with 1800RPM then 92mm fan with 1600
and 12cm p12-1300 with 1300RPM...all others fans have 1200RPM max

here on OC.net 98% of people use 2000+RPM fans thinking how silent they are..they CANT be for god sake,something spinning that fast isnt silent.
I had GT,yate loons 2000+RPM and give it to friend after 10sec of use because that was loud...

just try to stop your fans and listen to silent PC and the run them again to see the difference.

I wouldn't say 98% of us have those kind of fans, but it's been proven that the noctuas are quiet but not the world's greatest silent fans. Yes the Noctua's may be quiet but they don't' push a whole lot of air nor do they have a lot of static pressure. RPM doesn't always = X loud either.

it's really easy...if the fan moves more and more air=it is creating more noise.
if you place obstacle in front of it or before it (case) noise getting bigger.

so if you would have fan spinning at 200RPM (yes I know it wouldnt move almost no air) noise would be minimal...
if you have fan spinning 3000RPM you have more factors creating noise->
air itself,spinning blades, obstacle in front of fan.

so even if noctua fans dont push 100CFM and dont have biggest static pressure they can cool pretty good - D14, NH-U12P SE are one of the best air coolers on market..and they are silent as well.
yes if you change the fans for GT,scythe 2000+RPM you will get better temps but sure the noise will raise fast.

so all in all, noctua fans are one of the best on market when you search for silent fans (and they can run as new for 4-5 without problem)

That's bull****, have you seen Martinm210's tests? Gentle Typhoons have practically no noise problems with heatsinks.

So can Gentle Typhoons. To be precise, every Scythe fan can.

Anyone complaining about a 50mm, 2,700rpm IMPELLER (because it's not even a fan) needs to actually listen to it before judging. That thing will make hardly any noise. Even a regular 50mm fan at 2,700rpm is nearly silent. The stock NB fans on 680i's were 50mm and running at ~5,500rpm.


I'm definitely in for more reviews. I like that someone has finally decided to close the sides off and force the air to actually flow all the way though. The fan in the base is a brilliant idea and might even keep some AMD guys from blowing up their MOSFETs. It's nice to see a company actually being different and innovative.

0.5mm for those heatpipes isn't right. 0.5 inches is probably more accurate. Those things are huge. Have to be 10mm at least.

Someone in AC will be fired for putting inaccurate info at the Technical Data table.
0.5mm refers to the thickness of the 47 aluminium fins.
The four heatpipes are 8mm in diameter.

it just doesnt look impressive to me. i could be wrong but i dont see it performing that well.

I give up, think what you want...
any fan pushing lot of air through heatsink will make noise. actually its noise from air going through heatsink..more air=more noise

but if you think GT spinning 2600RPM on heatsink is making less noise that noctua or any other fan spinning 1000RPM...

Are you saying Noctuas are better because they move less air?
It's the damn CFM/dB ratio that matters, even on heatsinks, and Noctuas have a lower ratio than GTs - it's something you can't argue against.
I haven't had any Noctuas but i agree with you, about any 120mm fan spinning over 2000rpm is loud as hell. I run my Slip Stream at 800rpm, 2x Gentles at 1000rpm and a Tricool at ~700rpm, making their noise levels equal to each other.

I just say that noctuas are silent

nothing more

i just give up...if someone will run his fan at 3000RPM and tell me they are silent fans then be it
