Thread for Best Fans

Hi,

We don't have any best fan's recommendations for specific rules. for example Case fans, radiator fans, or hard disk fans in the cage which need very high Static pressure.

What I want is fans that won't die or crackle like Enermax or EK fans which happened to me more than 7 times. I bought the Noctua industrial fans which are best protected against anything, but they have very low static pressure, I barely have any air when connected to the harddisk cages.

I have the Corsair Obsidian Series 750D case.

Currently, I have 3x Noctua NF-A12 3000rpm on the Enermax Liqutech II RGB which is fine. but I need 2x 140mm FANs for the front, cause I have the Enermax now and they soon die. and one for the back which I have the EK now which might die soon. I need to put a lot of hot air outside because it's the Threadripper 1950x 4.0 system and everything starts getting hot when it's on load. I need to put extra fan on the ram and VRM because this area gets so hot because no air flows there.

Any suggestion for best none noisy not crackling, dying over time fans? something like Noctua but with way better airflow and static pressure. the Noctua can put through a lot of air but it needs to be terribly noisy. I got them for the radiator because I couldn't find a fan that won't stop dying after couple of months. and I couldn't use low static RPM because when the CPU got heavy on the load I needed more RPM.

This topic is actually very easy to answer
There are 2 best fan on market :

12cm Noctua 12x25 (case - rad -cpu cooler- hdd cage everywhere )

14cm Be Quiet Silent Wings3 (normal version for case / HighSpeed for rad-cpu cooler-hdd cage )

Noctua’s are the best just not the industrial ones as they have PWM issues when using a splitty9 and the Aquaero

BEST AIRFLOW








BEST STATIC PRESSURE
You don't need "Best Airflow" and "Best Static Pressure", you need best P/Q curve for your needs. What good is best airflow if the front of that 750D chokes it? What good is best static pressure if it needs to be at 3000 rpm to achieve it?

The front of your 750D is more restrictive than most rads (personally, I would say replace the case rather than the fans, but that's your choice). See the below chart for some answers to your dilemma. Unfortunately, the eLoops are a no go in the 750D because they have noise issues when there is obstruction on the intake side, and the 750D is all obstruction. Having used every fan in those results, I would take the Silent Wings 3 over all of them:

What ciarlatano said. be quiet! Silent Wings 3 120mm and 140mm PWM high speed are probably the best fans out there.


According to publish specs Silent Wings 3 High Speed has best overall performance.

Current. . 014a . . . . . . . . . 0.123a/0.53a . . . . . 0.14a/0.5a
Not only do Silent Wing 3 have more airflow, it has 69% higher pressure rating. The higher the pressure rating the better fans can overcome grill, filter, raidator, etc resistance and maintain good airflow. Yes, Silent Wings 3 is a little highe dB, but it's also higher speed, so at same speed is about same noise level. Silent Wings 3 will also overcome more resistance so will flow more air at same dB level.

A little ot, I just noticed where you are situated, best of luck. Lucky me still gets to work but I would rather be at home. The machine shop I work at is considered an essential service here somehow. It hasn’t hit the fan here where I am yet, give it a week or so..

Much appreciated. I'm considered essential, as well, but can WFH about half the time, and our office is sanitized nightly for those of us that have to go in. Hoping it never hits the fan there for your sake as well as the rest of the good folks of Winnipeg.
