The Phobya 200
is only 8 FPI
, so I don't think static pressure is going to matter much. Get a fan that moves lots of air and you should have pretty good results. The problem with current 140 radiators is that all the slim models are 30FPI. Taking that into consideration, I would probably actually take the Phobya 200 over a 2x140 if I was limited to a slim radiator. The only question is how well the Phobya 200 scales with increasing air flow.
At 1300 RPM and 166CFM, I would think the NZXT 200
would be a good match for the Phobya 200. Next best fan choice would probably be the Silverstone FM181
or perhaps the Silverstone Air Penetrator
- both 180mm fans. This is all assuming advertised flow rates are semi-accurate (I know, that's giving manufacturers lots of credit).
I would really like to know what would be better between a slim 2x140 rad and the Phobya 200 (all assuming fans with a max rpm of 1400), but I'm really leaning towards the Phobya 200.
