Rad Fans Need Help

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've been looking for some good rad fans, I currently have 4 R4's and 4 SS's and I am thinking about getting a RX360 and I would like to standardize my fans... I'm looking at, YL M / HS and Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000k 2000k

Gentle Typhoons are the best for noise/cfm and also have very good static pressure. Other than that I would go with the yate loons because they under volt better than those UKs and the RX series does not need high speed fans.

I would like to keep the price as low as possible since I will have to buy 12-14 of these and I don't wanna spend $200 on fans...

How are you controlling the fans?

I bought Akasa Vipers for my H70 because on paper they have identical specs to the Gentle Typhoons AP-15s + they are PWM controlled.

They are also a few dollars cheaper than the AP-15s.

Why do you need to buy 12-14
You only need three for a rad. 6 if you are doing a push pull

I'm getting an RX360 and I have a MCR320-QP that I would like them all to have identical fans. I will most likely be running the push pull, and I will more than likely run them off 7v or something of the sort, using a 3pin bridge

Yate loons are your best bet then. Cheap, good, quiet, and those rads don't need high speed fans like the UKs.

MMmkay, do these rad's do well with 20mm shrouds?

If you want to be cheap then Yate Loons WOULD be your best bet.

I am not sure about the shrouds though. Never used a shroud....

Any rad will do better with shrouds because you are eliminating the deadspot created by the center of the fan. At most you will see a couple degree difference however, so it is entirely up to you.

You will never lose performance from adding shrouds like that so don't be afraid.
