no doubt aluminium was used to prevent rusting within the warrenty period.

1500 RPM Noctua is loud :O? Thats quiet in my books biggrin.gif. I would grab them if it wasnt for the ugly brown color. Also with doing further research I have found out that the NB MP12-P perform just a little underneath than the NF-F12 and in couple instance the same. So I'm just gonna grab a pair MP12-P of Amazon and see, if anything Amazon does have good return policy.

First off sorry for the beeping in the beginning, my temp alarm for the northbridge was going off because my case fans were shut off. Also sorry for the camera going all over the place I never make videos and it was a smartphone (had phone in one hand and flashlight in the other hand because my room is really dark so I was fumbling all over the place).

The mic gain was on 50% in the beginning and around 57 seconds into the video I changed the mic gain too ~82% which is VERY high. The finger snapping was for two reasons. First was so I could line up the video with the audio easily and second is because we all know how loud a proper finger snap sounds, this way you have a reference for how loud the pump is.


Thank you! I can clearly hear that my pump is defekt smile.gif I'm going to show this video to the guy in the shop if he don't believe my pump is broken! smile.gif

I think it depends which fan it is?

8bitG33k DBA is noise RPM is speed not the same measure unit but normally higher the RPM higher the DBA. I would say anything below 20/21DBA is quiet above that until 28/30 you can live with it anything else it sounds like a Jet Engine

Yea i need a fan controller already all my fans run 100% so there rather loud even though The cougars are rather quiet most likely the stock case fans I left in there that make a lot of noise I don't really mind and notice it half the time but sometimes its bothers me a lot.

how long have you had the pump? if its past the store return policy you will probably have to contact antec

I was referring to DjBodya's statement that:

Sorry, I was being a smartazz redface.gif I was tring to say that noise is highly dependent on the quality of the fan-motor and that high RPM's aren't necessarily linear with dba. biggrin.gif

I will try to hold my sarcasm in check in the future.

Wait, but you not thr one who talked about the Noctua thinking.gif

So now I found a new candidate to what I wanna try on my rad. The Cooler Master Excalibur 120mm. Any thoughts on the Excalibur?
If only microcenter wasnt 30 min drive I would buy them all and then return the undesirable ones XD

it has a very wide DB range for the rpms but sometimes you can never trust the manu's db ratings, thats if your worried about the sound,

do you have a frys near you? i went the other day they had a bunch of fans on display on a wall all on and working which iv never seen before was nice to feel cfm and hear the noise
