Many good words about this fan. I got one, liked it, got another.

Zalman ZM-F3 Specs

Size: 120x25mm, 7 blades
Bearing: Sleeve
Speed: 1800 RPM
Airflow: na CFM
SPL: 34.0 dBA
Static Pressure: na
Features: comes with four excellent gray-white silicon vibration isolators (“rubber screwsâ€) and a 9v connector to reduce the speed to 900 RPM.

Results on the Megahalems 12v:

Speed: 1720 RPM (average)
CPU temp over ambient: 54c
SPL: 30 dBA
“Soft, pleasant.â€

Results on the Megahalems 12v, tandem mount (two fans):

Speed: 1765 RPM (average)
CPU temp over ambient: 53.5c
SPL: 33 dBA
“Machines at work.â€

I have these fans and they sound like a vaccum cleaner. dBa = over 9000.

Awesome review though

Damn, I was utterly shocked at the performance of the CM Blademasters, which happen to be the stock fans on the CM Hyper 212+. I had switched my CM Blademaster to a pair of Zalman F3's on my Hyper 212+. If only I had knew, I would have just gotten another CM Blademaster to set up a push/pull. Gah.

Really informative review. You went the extra mile here. +rep to you my good sir.

OK, Pale Moon just froze HARD trying to refresh this thread, had to force-kill it and reopen the browser. Too many big images, title needs a WARNING in it, seriously.

higher RPM than what?

edit: if you mean the 1850RPM ones (highest I could find, and also the ones I have) Newegg has them

Apologies for the trolling earlier, this is a great review!


And + 1 to the Zalman's, great static pressure for 25mm fans.

Barely scratched the surface this morning, but now I'm reading it all.. simply amazing.


Never knew that undervolted Ultra Kazes do so bad, but there's no way I can have those jets go at full speed. Wish there were San Aces available here, but sadly there isn't even one.

Edit: +1 obviously

He's going to have so many +1's by the end of the day. Lol and he deserves it. Thank you for helping me feel better about spending $30 on two ultra kaze 3000's this morning. (shipped from new egg) That's quite a collection and some pretty cool fans I havnt seen before.

Do you have any plans to test with shrouds? I've always wondered if they help on a mega.
