Why did you choose AP14 over AP15 when it comes to cpu cooling? Which one of these 2 is the one with the least background noise? (I want to replace my P12 and so how does the static pressure compare vs those 2?)

The AP-15's cooled better - about 2c - but they were also louder by 2-3 dBA. I could hear the difference.

The AP-14's were good enough with my rig and my cooler. I didn't need the additional 2c, and I appreciate the 2-3 dB less noise. I'm running a wind machine with eight fans - P14 and 2xAP-14 on the D14, Kaze Maru 1200 rpm top intake, KM 500 side intake, AP-12 (on 5v) front intake, AP-13 bottom intake, AP-15 + Beamair auto controlled by MB as PCH cooler - and all I hear is soft wind. That's important for a machine sitting so close to me (see above).

You must have sensitive ears though. My AP-15 is dead quiet. I can't imagine getting a slower version. If anything, I'd love to see a 2500rpm GT.
Agreed!

Really would love 2000+ rpm from GT.
Hopefully its on the works!

ehume, you should start a Google spreadsheet so members can add names themselves. If there are enough members then you could ask one of the mods to make this club official. Just a thought.

Anyway, I'm in. GTs are great fans. Now I'm just waiting to get some of those 2150 RPM ones.

It really varies from person to person whether you consider the AP-15 dead-silent. I'm sure I'd hear it over my other controller hooked fans, so I went with a pair of AP-14's instead.

My Yate Loon's take such a performance hit at lower volts, since I can't stand anything over 25dBA. The GT's are perfect for the job and I'll probably be replacing some case fans for them as well. First two coming in today.

I have a Typhoon 15 on my CPU cooler. It runs full speed and i cannot find a way to control it. Not from bios not from Speedfan.
I control an AUX fan from Speedfan, no problem. But no the Typhoon. Any idea?

You'll have to ask someone that has an Asus mb. I believe there are threads that address this. The GT is a voltage controlled fan.

The AP-15 I just plugged into the SYS_FAN2 header on my mb is running at 1048 rpm right now. That's because in BIOS I set my automatic fan control to Enabled, and set the mode to Voltage. Asus mb's have something similar, IIRC.

I couldn't stand it. I just bought two more AP-14's - one for my bottom intake and one for my mid-case PCH/GPU fan.

If you are thinking of getting an AP-14 or AP-15, get one soon. I just learned from a source that there is most likely going to be a "major shortage" of AP-14's and AP-15's.

sounds like a marketing ploy
like when ram was $1 or more per meg.
because a memory factory or storage warehouse with all the worlds ram was stored went on fire.

Unless the increase is massive, they're still worth their money. They'll soon be gone for a while, just like ehume said. My local shop is permanently out of AP-14's until furter notice, with the 15's following soon.
