    Xigmatek XLF-F1253 vs Cooler Master R4-L2R-20CG-GP

    Need advise on which 120mm fans to pick for better cooling and faster/stronger air flow + durability fitting onto my Cooler Master HAF 932.

    Cooler Master seems to have a faster Speed (R.P.M.) @ 2000 RPM with Air Flow (CFM) @ 90 CFM while Xigmatek having a Speed (R.P.M.) @ 1500 RPM with Air Flow (CFM) 61 CFM. Wana get to know more about these two + your recommendations. Thank you so much!:respect:

    Xigmatek --- http://www.xigmatek.com/product/accessory-xlf-f1253.php

    Cooler Master --- http://sg.coolermaster.com/products/product.php?language=en&act=detail&tbcate=36&id=6019

    *If you have any other brands to want to recommend please do so.

    Checkout http://www.frozencpu.com for some sweet hardware.

    Want to superfan your rig?

    The Delta "Mega Fast" 120mm x 38mm Fan is a staggeringly powerful 120 mm fan. The fan kicks out 252 cubic feet of air every minute - one fan can cool an entire system with ease. Of course, at 66.5 dBA, it is hardly quiet - but who can argue with a better than 4:1 airflow to noise ratio?

    I'm getting me one today if they are in-stock, as they are located close to my hometown.
    I did buy a CoolerMaster R4 from them, but I want the Mega Fast now.

    Try it here --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6ao4cek4IU
    :eek: That sure is awesome airflow but alittle too loud i guess. Thank you for the suggestion it helps!;)

    If thats the case, i might go for the Xigmatek ones has they are more attractive. But i prefer greens.. How sad:cry:

    I have one of each of those fans on my cpu cooler. Personally i prefer the Xigmatek Fan as it looks better and i can really see no difference with its blow out to the coolermaster. Go Xigmatek

    I have 6 of the coolermaster fans you speak of. I have noticed that some of them blow more air than the other ones. The led's don't last too long on them either. However, they do move a lot of air and are quite quiet

    Except that decibels are a logarithmic scale so your "4:1" ratio is rendered completely and utterly irrelevent.

    I use scythe slipstreams (110CFM @ 37dB) - and if we look at SPL values the deltas kick out sound waves with around 900 times the amplitude (doesn't sound 900 times louder, probably more like 10 times but that's due to the human ear more than anything),due to the higher rpms its noise profile is probably also at a higher pitch (ergo - far more annoying).

    Don't get deltas if you plan to sit in the same room as your PC* :D

    *they may be alright at 5 volts, but that's not really the point is it?

    I bought a Delta Mega Fast fan yesterday and installed it. It is way too loud, very annoying. And my case temperature didn't drop at all in the 5 minutes I ran it. So much for that fan. It's out of here.

    Seem very much narrowed down to Xigmatek i guess..:rockout:

    Awwww! I can imagine that..:eek: Guess SnoopKatt was right on the sound of a jet or maybe standing next to a turbo?

    *I forgot to add a poll but i guess maybe you guys can add alittle voting on the ends of your replies? It helps as so far i hear more Xigmatek lovers.
