Quite fans are nice and they also have some with the same blade design to reduce the noise that don't have LED's
20 dBA with 90 CFM that is damn impressive I think that tops the scythe gentle typhoon series
Looks nice, has good specs, looks cool.
Can't wait to see how it performs in the real world.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
cool master has 200 and 240 mm fans with led but if want the direct replacement you have to look under your case type
(don't know how good or loud they will be but they look cool)
Yall can keep the lighting, as long as they are quite, pushes lots of air and Cheap!!
Just bought the Coolermaster four pack. Even though they only push 45cfm the pricetag of 15bucks is better than 17 for only one.
Yeah but animatortom these push over double the air (89.5 CFM) with probably less than or very close to the same DBA (20.16 dBA) . It depends on your usage as well as how cool you like to keep your internals. I might finally grab that liquid CPU cooler and these fans case wide for my 120/140mm fans. It would probably drop my CPU a couple degrees at least with just the air on my CPU cooler. So maybe skip the liquid, but still these case wide would probably drop the temp of everything.
am i the only one who doesnt light led lights on fans?? i like a nice dark quiet computer... in fact, i even dislike the hdd light on a case... the only thing i want to see is a power light to tell me if the computer is on. BUT back to the fan... 90cfn... ahh, lets say 70cf at 20db.... Daaaaaaaaaaang, that too for 20$, and the fact that its 200mm. thats pretty darn impressive.
Yeah...I know....My point being that for 17buck you can get one of these or four of the other.
I got the four pack for 15bucks and did a push-pull on the radiator, which ended up taking my CPU from about 140 down to 105. And with three extra fans my case temp went from around 135 down to 96.
Cooler Master 200mm fans spin @ 700 RPM, push 110 CFM ( only 19 dBA )
Silverstone 180mm Air Penetrator fans spin @ 700 - 1200 RPM, push 80 - 130 CFM ( 18 - 34 dBA)
TFC Triebwerk Performance 120mm x 55mm fans spin @1800 RPM, push 88.4 CFM ( 30 dBA)
So there are a few options out there (compared to standard case fans) to your beast.
AMD Phenom II 965 BE, ASUS Sabertooth 990FX, Corsair AX850, 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3,
Corsair Force 3 Series GT SSD (120GB), WD VelociRaptor (300GB), HIS Radeon
HD6870, NZXT Switch 810, XSPC Rasa CPU block, XSPC RX360, EK-DCP 4.0 pump,
Windows 7 H.P. - 64 bit
I can't get the LED button to control two top fans! It defaults to only on whenever the second LED is plugged in.
Idk how I missed this article, being that it's been on here for 2/3 of a year roughly, lol. Thanks for dredging up this zombie, cuz it actually has helped me a lot! I don't like the fact that the fan blades and spindle are white, but that's not a big deal, and potentially can be fixed with a little Krylon Plastikote black ;)
Thanks again for bringing this to my attention, as it gave me an epiphany, and btw, frozencpu sells these at the marked $17.99 price tag, and even has the option to get it sleeved for another $4 :D I am so very happy about this!!!
