Hi all soory for hugh post but i am pulling my hair out i need to replace the fasn in the antec case to make it sound better but keep the same cfm.
i just can not seem to figure out what fasn to get
I am wanting to replace my antec p183 fans and have been toled by a couple thats its between the
Noctua NF-P12 Vortex
Scythe S-FLEX 1200RPM Ultra Quiet 49.0 CFM, 20.1 dB
the fans in the antec case spec are (Low setting 39CFM, 25 dBA)
but the review on this site says
the fans in the antec case spec are (Low setting 39CFM, 17 dBA)
so what should i go for i have been toled the Noctua NF-P12 Vortex is not realy a good case fan more designed for cpu coolers and the scythe s-flex are far better at noise levels and been a case fan but seems abit to high in the cfm making it more noise would it be better to conect a fan controler
what you think ? wnat the same sort of aire flow but have a much more qiueter system than the antec case fans
what would be better in the case i am going to add 1 intake fan in front of the hardrives to keep them cool but wanted to know is it best to have 2 rear fans or take the top fan out and block it of and just have 1 rear fan.
Also would it be better to have a faster fan at the front and slower at the back or vice versa to improve the aire flow
so if i get the scythe S-FLEX 1200RPM Ultra Quiet 49.0 CFM and run it at its full speed and get the same at the back but run it at 1000rpm this would be better or just leave it at full speed ?
I was thinking of getting the scythe S-FLEX 1200RPM Ultra Quiet 49.0 CFM and slowing it down to 1000rpm so it should be on par with the antec cfm but should be at the 15db to 17db levels would this be my best bet
i just read in another forum The Scythes will point everywhere but up, so you can't use them for top exhaust. is this true as i wanted to use a fan on the top of the case
what about a Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm are these just good for cpu and not case fans ? are these better than a s-flex or should i just stick with a s-flex for case as Q6 has me abit worried
the problem is i have read the reviews on here of the fans and the antec sont runn at 1200rpm at low like antec say the reviews on here of this fan seems to run about 800rpm ? is this true. if thats the case should i be looking for a 800 to 1000rpm fan to get teh same air flow as the antec fans set to low
what do you think as i am going to be ordering these soon
just found this

the s-flex sounds alot loduer than the antec fans when running at 1200rpm can not understand that ? the GT are totaly silent but i can not get my head around the s-flex compaired to the antec at low setting.
can anyone figure that out as i thought the s-flex would be quieter
