Will thatm ove more air my fans rightn ow air only moving at 1,150RPM which is the fastest. So would the fans ive said be better??

Get those S-flex fans for sure. And yes, the slipstreams are low quality crap compared to an S-flex.

As for the blue LED fan, that narrows options a bit. There's always the blue LED yate loons, but they do use a sleeve bearing.

OK S flex it is even tho those Xigmateks are tempting. The B- gears use sleeve bearings tho too. and my side panel is modders mesh except for hte edges so its like having the side panel off.

I've been using the same slipstreams through two builds and over a year and a half, they're still going, running 24/7. Yeah, they're lighter and ultimately much cheaper in quality than the S-Flex, but they're also significantly cheaper. $9 for a fan that's lasted me a year and a half is an absolute steal, even if they died tomorrow I'd be incredibly pleased with my purchase. I would absolutely by another 6 of them.

But with an S flex, it'll last way more than a year. So you're saying that you'd rather buy a $9 fan every year, instead of a $20 fan every 5 years?

Doing this can actually defeat the purpose of having good airflow. You want the side panel closed so that your case's fans can do their job of maintaining airflow.

Think of it as running a fan with no duct(outside case around blades) and running a normal fan with the duct. The fan blades without airflow direction are going to pull in air from almost all sides and exhaust the air out from most sides, reducing the actual amount/volume of air being moved due to the lack of pressure of the air being moved.

Same as with the airflow of a PC case...The volume of cool, fresh air being pulled into the case by the intake fans(along with all air within the case) will radiate out of the open side panel, reducing the overall volume of hot air for the exhaust fans to expel, therefor cutting down the speed and amount/volume of air being pulled into and pushed out of the case.

A closed case, in theory, raises the pressure of the air inside, which allows the exhaust fans to exhaust more air as the air is 'squeezed' into a smaller area(higher air pressure). An open case will also cause the exhaust fans to not only move air from inside the case, but they will also move the air from outside the open panel which defeats the airflow design and lowers the efficiency.

No problem man. Yeah..those noctua fans don't have any static pressure. When i was doing my heatsink tests, so little air came through the heatsink with that fan that the VRMs on the mobo got no airflow over them. Got so hot they started to smell bad, and this is with aftermarket cooling on them.

That's the route I am taking now. It was hard.
