The sticky thread Tibors linked also talks about the AC fans, Elixer. There's a 38mm version of the YateLoon, but I don't know of any vendors. Perhaps silencio could fix you up with one. They don't make a slow version though, medium being the slowest, and based on a quick comparison of the manf. spe...

Exactly. SFF particularly could benefit, as well as novel airflow patterns in any ff.

Nice job. :)

Yeah, some sort of filtration is needed. A "pantyhose" filter should do the trick, or you could look into Bluefront's more advanced filter techniques.

Really nice to have so much space for a watercooling setup. A concrete&foam enclosed MD-20Z should fit in there... :twisted:

Wow, the UC-12EB undervolts really well! Reminds me of the Titan/Evercools. Hopefully indictive of its sibling UC-12AEBS as well.

What is the min voltage and starting voltage and the resulting rpm for this fan?

Edit: Also, where are you getting your 11.4v value from? Software monitoring can be untrustworthy.

Thanks

What kind of case do you have? Depending on the case and the hard drives' location you may be able to go a truly quiet route, rather than compromising for greater CFMs.

I have one of those magnet thingys that I use to balance my RC aircraft props. Does the trick, but fan balancing a 7blade case fan would get really hairy.

Ah, upgrading your 939 to the 4600+ now that the price cuts have come out, I see? :) I want to get a 4412FGL, since it seems to be the best combination of high air flow and low noise. Are there any other fans with similar specs I should be looking into? Yeah, I would recommend the highest rpm Scythe...

Yeah, I absolutely love the HR-05. To some extent I wish I had gotten a Scythe Ninja Plus instead of a Scythe Mine, but I haven't tried OCing yet so may appreciate the Mine's higher fin density later on.

I also suggest you test the voltage with real voltmeter and not rely on motherboard readings as those are often off by ~0.1V or more. Yeah, that's what I did.

Well, after probe testing the psu while running two sessions of CPUBurn, the 12v rail test to 11.92v. Not nearly as bad. Should have done this to begin with as we all know how inaccurate software tools can be.

Think .08v is worth sweating over?

My S12-430 12v rail is at 11.84v and has been since I purchased it a month ago. Should I get a replacement while I can? I only have a few more days before my returnability expires.

Asus is a solid brand as well. Not sure the premium you're going to have to pay to get the passive version. May be cheaper just go for the normal Asus version and get a VF900.
