so, for a not-so-up-on-it silencer, what are the main differences between the 150/160/180?

Obviously the look and placement of some of the things are different but performance wise, are there any comparissons of the 160/180 and speculation against the 150?

Thanks

Bluefront, thank you...we SFFers need some quiet fans :) 60mm - sleeve bearing, plain black because they are going in PSUs usually or on NB heatsinks and so the bling bling factor will probably just cause problems/price increase.

crap, now I have to re-think my loop. I have a DD fillport at the same level as my BIP II (mounted horizontally with ports facing down)

would a res fix this? how MUCH higher does it have to be.

How would I overcome the problem, any suggestions??

The reason I ask is because the fillport must be at the point of highest elevation in the cooling loop to get a proper fill and bleedout of air in the loop, and if the radiator is at the top of the loop with fittings pointed straight down, I think life will be difficult indeed.

best 120mm Heartercore/rad for low flow fan

Hey guys,

For those of you who have any experience with it, any idea what the best 120mm rad would be for the quiet/lowflow/low static pressure fans that we use?

I have heard that single pass ones are good, but could you elaborate on that for me...I'm still new to this :)

Thanks

That might explain it...I should have actually measured it instead of eyeballing it :)

you're right, it is a 92mm.

Are Globe's dB ratings on their site accurate?

Help me identify this fan...please

I have a globe 120mm fan that came on a case and I'm trying to find out the specs and if it's going to be at all quiet.

It's a sleeve bearing with a silver/purple sticker and number S07138812L DC12V 0.18A

Does anyone know how quiet/undervolatble these are?

Thanks

I would be careful with that, the CFM is a little low. I know that the 250W PSUs use 2x ~7cfm fans. Going below 5-6 CFM, you are going to watch out for your temps.

Just a heads up :)

The big problem with SilenX (at least why they didnt do well in the shuttle) is that they have a very low static pressure so just cant push through a restrictive airspace. (at SilenX's own admission)

Hope that helps

WCing a shuttle - need rad advice

Mornin folks, I'm trying to figure out what rad would go well with a quiet 80 or 92mm fan. The only problem is that it will be going in a shuttle so it can't be huge and it cant be a dual fan thang. The plan right now is to be cooling an AMD 2500+ and the NB which powers dual monitors on the built i...

OK, so two questions:

How well does the sunon maglev undervolt and does it still get good noise to flow?

What about some 60mm options? anyone have suggestions, I really only need to push 6-7cfm so undervolting a 60mm should be more than enough I'm thinking :)

Any suggestions are great thanks

LoL at rusty.

So the best bet for now is to just go with the adda or silenx fans and spend copious amounts of money on them? :roll:

Unfortunately I cant fit the 40x40x20 in the spot...needs to be 10.

If I find anything better, I'll let you all know.

40mm fan suggestions

before you say it..I know...40mm can't be quiet but still I must try.

I noticed that the silenx 40mm are not to popular, I was considering adda, any other suggestions?

Unfortunately modding for 60mm isn't possible (It's a SFF PSU fan ).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm considering the SN85G4V2 with an athalon 64. I know I am not going to get anywhere near "silent" with this...but "I can sleep 3 feet away from it" is a big deal.

I'll keep looking and let you know if I come up with anything interesting :)
