    bad heatsink fans too... good casefans, but put anything in front of them and it turns in a handful of fail.

    This Zalman with its stock fan outperformed my D14, but the fan that comes with it is super loud. So I had to do something and these were on hand. I'll go with free and quiet over buying black ones;)

    It was 73f at the time of testing :) normal room temps for me range from 68f-80f depending greatly on how much :eek: I am on..

    btw i think on of the sensors are whacked because the room would have to be 68f to be 20c unless the temp on the floor was 5f lower... That could be possible

    Nope it is no D14, its half the size and just edges it out with the stock fan.

    Not too sure on the water front, looks like I need to invest in a new GPU for work;)

    ??? wtf? maybe an lol? how would they perform any diffirent than any other fan with something infront of it? cooling? how is it any worse than another fan with its CFM? CFM is CFM and if their in the same legue they perform similar...thats why they call CFM a Standard unit of measurement.

    Outstanding really! bit cramped in some ways but hey, £25 quid, I've had £90 cases that are worse :laugh:

    Won't be using it long though, just whilst I paint/mod my Kandalf : ]

    LOL... wow didn't expect that from you, but let the lesson begin:

    static pressure.

    some fans blow less CFM but have a higher static pressure...

    In this case its blade design and fan thickness that affects static pressure. A 50 CFM 25mm fan will get killed by a 50 CFM 38mm fan if you put it on a heatsink, because the 38MM is less susceptible to the backfeed and the restriction of the cooler, and actually blows MORE air THROUGH the heatsink.

    This same concept applies to fan design and blade orientation/spacing of fans using the same thickness.

    so:
    Noctua NF-P12

    [​IMG]

    and
    Noctua NF-S12

    [​IMG]


    The top has more pressure, and is better on heatsinks even at lower RPM, even noctua will tell you this:

    http://noctua.at/main.php?show=nf_s12_p12_comparison&lng=en

    Same with water pumps, some pumps dont have the GPH of others, but have a higher head pressure due to to motor and impeller design.


    here is some bathroom reading:

    http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cases_cooling/noctua_nf-p12_static_pressure_performance/1

    "The new Noctua NF-P12 now provides the static pressure needed for both heat exchanger and heat sink applications. All credit goes to Noctua for stepping up to the plate and making an even better product than the NF-S12's. Equally impressive is that you can now 'have your pie and eat it too' - cooling performance without the additional noise.

    Subsequently, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Noctua NF-P12 120mm cooling fans as a worthy addition to your cooling system."


    so... this is why its always a good idea to know the tech specs of a product before relying on one Standard to measure performance. I know that you know better, or should know better, you wouldn't judge a PSU based on WATT rating alone.
