Yay someone found our quick unboxing video. Sorry that it wasn't more in-depth, we literally took that video 25 minutes after we received our first case. We'll be doing a more in-depth overview soon that'll really showcase all the water cooling potential. This case is a water cooling paradise!
HI George, thanks for that info. Do those differences also apply to the fans used on the H100i? In particular the bearing type used?
I am curious if the retail SP120's are likely to be quieter at the same RPM's than the stock H100i fans
The SP120Ls are actually a lot different, because we had to use a very high-torque motor to keep the static pressure up. A single SP120L costs 4x what an AF120L costs, primarily because of the motor and bearing changes.
The AF fans don't have to worry too much about static pressure as they're usually not pushing directly at radiators or heatsinks.
Current Draw: .11A Max
Static Pressure: .916 mmH2O
Current Draw: .12A Max
Static Pressure: .764 mmH2O
The noise level testing is still being finalized but it's pretty competitive with aftermarket fans around the same RPM.
With very few exceptions, two fans at the same RPM will perform at similar noise levels. There are very few ways to make this significantly better as it's been perfected for a long time. At lower RPMs motor and bearing noise is more apparent so that's focused on heavily.
From my understanding NCIX was one of the last to order the case (Correct me if i'm wrong). Should I expect to receive it anytime soon.. around mid april?? or will i need to wait until May to receive my case.
