Not sure if this has been explained already, but I have noticed that some of the fan results in the latest review (Sharkoon/Silverstone fans) are different to the results posted in previous reviews. For instance, the bequiet! Silent Wings 2 fan records 34 C @ 11 dB in this review (http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1342-page9.html
) yet it is 27 C in the Sharkoon review. What's the deal with this?
I spotted some mistakes on the older charts that I forgot to fix (I'll get to it soon). As for the Silent Wings 2, it did 27C at 11~12 dBA and this time, instead of rounding it up to 12 dBA, we expanded it to cover both the 11 and 12 dBA boxes and dropped the 34C/11 dBA result from the chart altogether. That was a judgement call.
Also, when did you review the Scythe Slip Stream 120-M? I can only find some really old reviews with the previous testing system.
The Slip Stream 120-M was tested using our new test methodology but never officially reviewed. It's one of our favorites but not worth much discussion as it's an old fan that has been discontinued.
