The bolded part is what bothers me. I think that noise could be removed with shrouds but I don't have room enough to use them.Noise Blocker Black Silent Pro PK-3
Another fan sponsored by SeeingRed, thanks!!!
The noise blocker has near perfect sound quality at 4-5V. No rubbing, no motor ticks, just smooth sound. Unfortunately...like the yate loons, this fan starts having what I would describe as blade resonance with the radiator at higher speeds. You can barely notice it at around 7V and it gets progressively stronger on upwards. Noise level is about average down low and perhaps a bit higher than average at higher speeds. It does have very good RPM range and electrical efficiency is a fair amount better than the yate SM.
What radiators do you use, as i'd seen the spectre's had quite low static pressure? I just wish they would release some 140 Gt'sOriginally Posted by mm67
Noiseblocker PK-3's are great case fans but I can't stand the noise they make with a radiator. I have replaced mine with Thermaltake X-Silent's on one system and Bitfenix Spectre Pro's on other one.
I'm planning on using a Magicool Slim Profile 2X140mm Radiator .Originally Posted by warejon9
