Fans on VenX?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm in a bit of a pickle... I am about to buy a VenX black, and am bewildered by all the fan choices... I want quiet fan that cools well. I'm looking at the AP121 UV blue fan, because it matches my theme in my newest build and is very quiet. I've heard it's awful on heatsinks though... Would I be better off going for a pair of Scythe AP-13s?

Help me! Haha.

Go for AP-14's or even 15's if you can find any.

I went with 2x Gelid Wing 12 PL's, for the PWM function. Quiet when you want it and ramps up when you need it.

The comparisons in item 1 of my sig will do for your heatsink.

About 35-40 degrees idle and 67-70 load with prime95 smallFFT. This is during the middle of the summer here (mid 20's ambient). I've got the cooler facing the rear exhaust which is a 140mm Prolimatech red vortex with the case fan grill cut out. My CPU is at 1.31v vCore too, fan profile set for 30% speed at idle and ramps up to 100% at 60 degrees. Even at 100% it isn't that loud, you can just hear a low pitched wind noise, unlike the high pitched whine like on some graphics card coolers.
