Pure Wings 2 or Silent Wings 3?

I have a darkbase pro 900 with three Silent Wings 3, 140-1000rpm, as intake and three 120 as exhaust.

The plan is to buy a faster model, 1600rpm, and put the 1000rpm as exhaust. Should I go for the Pure Wings 2 or Silent Wings 3?

3xPureWings 45€, 3xSilent Wings 75€

Silent Wings 3 are infinitely better than Pure Wings 2. PW2 are rated 0.76mm H2O @ 1000rpm, much lower than SW3 rating of 1.08mm H2O @ 1000rpm, and pressure rating is what gets air through grills and filters. PW2 fans are almost worthless even at fulll speed.


SW3 high speed are 2.16mm H2O @ 1600rpm giving you a lot more airflow through filters and grills.

Well that's all I asked for, perfect infos, also do you know if there's a comparable fan from other brands?

Pure Wings 2 is a rifle bearing fan which was the same generation as Silent Wings 2. It's mediocre while the Silent Wings 3 is a true FDB (Fluid dynamic bearing) with top tier performance.


See https://www.overclockersclub.com/rev...uiet_140/3.htm , https://thermalbench.com/2016/03/08/...-cpu-cooler/4/



I don't think there's been testing on the new faster model 1500RPM Pure Wings 2 (other than on the Pure Rock cooler), but if the bearing is the same I wouldn't expect miracles.

Between PW2 or SW3, it's no contest that the Silent Wings are the way to go.

If you are looking for something a bit more budget friendly the Noctua Redux line has some nice stuff, and they aren't the typical poo brown color. 120mm: NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM 140mm: Noctua NF-P14s redux-1500 PWM

Corsair ML120 and ML140 are also good performers

Try finding 12V NF-A14. Out of these your best choice are, descending:
- Noctua A14
- Corsair ML140
- Arctic P14


Forget about Stellas, they're worse than Corsairs LLs, which are already crap.

Phanteks PH-F140MP / PH-F120MP are quite good and reasonably priced. Usually their 2-pack and 3-pack prices are much better than buying single fans. Here I can get 2-pack PH-F140MP for £16.26 and 2-pack PH-F120MP for £14.99. Arctic P14 are £5.95-6.95 each and P12 the same. Arctic P12 value pack of 5 are £17.43 and value pack of P14 are £24.49. I haven't use any Arctic P series but from what I'm hearing they are decent for what they cost. A few buyer have had received bad/ damaged fans that made more noise than they should, but I stack that up to shipping abuse.

Unfortunatly the PH-F140MP are like 30€ each for some reason, prob no amazon availability.

I've found the Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-3000 PWM (idk if are the ones BroadPwns meant for 12v), looks good, same price as the sw3, but I guess it's gonna be damn loud lol.
