I worked for a shop that did Dyno tuning on high end sports/race cars. In order to keep some of the Drag racing cars from over heating on the dyno we would use industrial
7,500-10,000 CFM floor fans pointed at the nose.

To the point! I always wanted to hook one of the smaller versions to a server case. The industrial fans use anywhere from 1k-15k CFM. They are freaking nuts.

Clicky

Another vision involves one of those fan's, and a 4 core racing radiator for a custom water cooling loop. The only problem I see is the blocks will never be able to saturate the radiator or fan.. Custom blocks would be needed.... One can dream.. Maybe one of my buddies at the machine shoppe will get bored with winter...

Yes, I spell things wrong just to drive you nuts.

I only play like once a week if at all anymore. I'm kind of fed up with the way the entire FPS industry has ended up. But that's another story....

Thanks in advance.

Just finished installing my gigabyte mini-ITX mobo in the CM690 II Advanced. Just used 4 of the ATX holes, fits perfectly, no mods what so ever. wink.gif

You can just call me "Freedom"...

Ditto.
I think my gaming will stop at BF3 and Planetside 2. That is until they bring Halo back to PC or something...


On Topic:

Can anyone give me a professional/educated opinion on this fan?

COUGAR CF-V12HP Vortex

My brother just bought 5 of these for his new build (Haven't been extensively tested yet because there's no case to fully implement them) and I've been pretty impressed. They're quiet and, of course, move a lot of air! Plus, the air is slightly more directionally-concentrated than other fans I've run across. Been debating on buying a few of these myself, but I want to know what other fans would be better/fair competitors to these. Anyone have suggestions?

Also, do you think they would work well for a CPU water cooling unit (ex. Corsair H60/H80...etc)?

I have no personal experience but have been seeing many more people using them on their custom loop setups.

So they must be half good for rads. thumb.gif

I'm using 8 of them. Had them for maybe two weeks now. They're still too loud for me when running all 8 at 1500rpm but at 1000-1100rpm theyre awesome for me. The noise isn't much at 1500rpm (don't care when gaming obviously) but I also record acoustic guitar with a large diaphragm condenser mic (which are designed to pick up minute noises and lot of natural ambiance from the room) sometimes so... I need close to silence as possible.

I also run 2 in p/p on a kuhler 620 rad. Tested them at 1500rpm vs the single stock antec fan. Got a 2-3C improvement. I had been eye balling these fans for months and when they went on sale for $9.99 on newegg I had to jump on them.
