Changing my fans, Recommend me some replacments

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
As above, I currently have 11 Xigmatek XLF-F1253 1500RPM fans that push 61cfm at 20dB

Not sure on the static pressure as I've never found any data on them.

I have 3 on the front of my case, 6 on the radiator in push+pull and 1 on the bottom and back of the case.

I'm just bored of the orange look now and was looking at black and white.

First of all am I really going to get any improvement while staying roughly at the same noise level or should I just stay with what I have?

If I will see an improvement then recommend away

Just checked and they push less air while being 8dB's louder

I'm not familiar with the xigma's. However are those numbers from an independent test or manufacturer's numebrs? Personally I don't trust manufacturer's numbers. Gentle typhoons redefined what a fan should be for me, so quiet and so much air being moved. Plus the static pressure is really good. If you can borrow or buy and return one and try it side by side with the xigma then I would. If the xigma's truly are better than the GT's then I think it's unlikely you're going to do much better.

The current I use do have some decent pull and push to them...

lolol.
Coolermaster fans = no.
I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot clown pole.

My testing results. No experience with Xigmatek, but I did test about 50 or so other fans.

If you don't like numbers just watch the videos and decide for yourself:
http://martinsliquidlab.org/2010/11/...und-6-summary/

Page 2 has all the vids:
http://martinsliquidlab.org/2010/11/...d-6-summary/2/

I like getting two videos going and then pause them at similar FPM level (Blue Anemometer on left), then you can do a direct audio comparison at actual air flow through a radiator.

Don't trust open air dbA box numbers, they mean nothing in the real world on a radiator with actual restriction and radiator noise amplification.
