My choice for A12x25 (this specific SKU) is because the told marables about noise profiles even with turbulence to be push or pull on rads. It is like more a sound choice than a performance choice. What do you think about?
I heard/read good things about the Silent Wings 3, but (sadly) have no experience with it. I've been using Noctua fans for years, as well as their CPU air coolers before I started with water…

I also have A14 (actcually A15). I like it, but, if I will pick an 140mm fan, I will stick with SW3 (sounds matters and everybody says it is superior than Noctuas 140 mm in this matter considering static pressure by sound bearing etc).
Now you have me wondering if I should replace the A14s with SW3s. But I think I will wait until Noctua releases the NF-A12x25 design in 140 mm size, hopefully this year (I think they only said that it wouldn't be 2018, or so I read). The A14s are totally fine for me at ~800 rpm.

Thanks. Your conclusion?
The bottom 3 rows in this picture seem the most relevant: As expected the 140 mm fans have better airflow before and after the radiator, at significantly lower speeds, which makes them seem superior. Unfortunately there are no sound measurements, only the mention that the NF-A12x25 are indeed very quiet. Does that make up for the higher speed? I don't know. Haven't found any other conclusive reviews vs 140mm fans either. I sort of want to try.

Do you recommend I purchase a flow meter rather than a flow sensor?
Honestly, I don't know the difference and may have used both terms interchangeably. I only know (have) this one and like it. It does its job and I can't hear it.

Thank you, @boli .

I'm still wondering if I'll be happier with something simpler. In addition, several components are not in stock.

So I'm very interested in Alphacool's solution. They say the pump is extremely quiet. In addition, comes with the praised SW3.

I would like to ask you the following question.

Which fittings among these should I acquire in order to use the quick release of the Eisbaer Extreme and attach it to the ROG Maximus XI Formula's CrossChill EK III?

Implying that the length of the hoses is sufficient for the looping (with the radiator on top, I think so, since one of the legs of the pair of hoses, thanks to the quick disconnect, would be split in half, forming three legs).

I read it. The reports say it is not reliable, but aC says it is a new revision with fixes. I am very lazy so I was wanting to skip yhe hedache of buying so much components and building them. The main problem is to find everything in stock. i hate to buy partical hardwrae to be waiting for available the rest, which, several times, does not happen, forcing us to buy a item that does not match so good as the original planned.

Just Performance PCs sends to Brazil. It is very difficult. I'm going crazy with this. Would it be easier if I travel to the America, buy everthing there and bring to the Brazil?

Good fan. But he needs a transition frame. The round frame of the fan leads to a loss of airflow.

I think it is because of that the NF-A12x25 performs so well on 140mm rads when of using NA-FMA1.

Some questions:

Is 2 liters of coolant enough?

https://www.mayhems.net/collections/x1-pre-mix-5ltr

That is the same stuff as this?

https://www.mayhems.net/collections/.../x1-clear-1ltr

If so, is wothwhile buyng 5 ltr instead of 2 ltr?

Is 3 meters of hoses enough for my intended loop?

This is the hose: https://www.primochill.com/collectio...-crystal-clear

Guys, almost nothing is available.

Lian Li PC 3000
Several Aqua Computer's
Heatkiller IV for Strix
HWL SR2 120mm fan radiators (however I would use adaptor on 140mm fan rads)
etc

i think it is very dificult to build a dream rig with released products in different seasons because always one or another get out of stok throughr EVER all stores.

I wish keep this thread to get help for build an extreme rig, without non-sense expensive bs, then going to get answares for my noob questions.


To start, I get told D5 (from Laing or whatever other brand name is) pumps are the quietest. However, what is the most suitable top to leave it very quiet? I relaly don't care if the flow rate is restrict if it give me low noise with good sound (no hum, fuss, whine etc).

Does the HWL SR2 radiators come with stop fittings for their ports?
