Ya. Both noctua and cougar have amazing build quality and are really quiet.
Noctua makes much better fans these days. I would get the PWMs over those old pieces of tech.
cougars only have 3 year warranty.
The board has a PWM fan connector, right?(All 775 had PWM, IIRC)
I'd get a Delta with PWM then: 1ST PC CORP. AFB1212SHE-PWM 120mm Case Fan
Yes they are loud at full speed, but under PWM control they can be silent with extremely good airflow.
Gotta be carefull hooking Delta's up to MOBO header's, you could overload the header and poof! Gotta make sure you are within spec if planning to do that
Prolimatech PRO-BV14 140mm Case Fan
I just found this. 80cfm for 18db. Thats a lot for not a lot
nvm. I just relized they are 140mm
So they still own and are cheaper to buy by $8? per fan. Only shit you hear from the Coagers is air flow.
Yeah i love Dalta's even more so the 38mm thick ones which would move more air just due to the fins being wider. Then you have speed and over the top if you ever need it hehe.
I can't even hear my cougar unless I have my head in my case... then all I hear is airflow. Really though, whatever you prefer. Price vs length of warranty.
thanks everyone for your input. i went with the Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm CPU Cooler and Case Fan if you didnt read above.
i just replaced the 3pin fans on my corsair hsf with 4pin 120mm akasa apache black....
these fans are impressive they use hydro dynamic bearings...
absolutely silent... i highly recommend these...http://www.scan.co.uk/products/120m...an-hdb-bearing-pwm-with-s-flow-blades-1300rpm
all of my other fans are sharkoon and these are easily of the same quality... good luck...
hey guys, this fan came last week and it has been great!
Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm CPU Cooler and Case Fan
expensive but well worth it. it does not make a noise and pushes a lot of air.
Sunon makes a good 120mm 150CFM @ 4500RPMs, speeds start at 5v up to 12v. It starts at "fairly quiet" and goes up to "jet taking off".
I got the following to replace the ThermalTake push-pull fans on the Frio on my old Phenom II 940.
SUNON PMD1212PTB1-A 120x120x25mm Double Ball Bearing Fan
It has been deactivated, but I'm sure there is a current version of it.
I do recommend something to control the speed of these fans though because full speed really is loud (considering it is rated at something like 53dB at full speed.)
Good to hear. You should try a cougar fan sometime also. Not to sound like a sore loser or anything...
There are these promiltech 140mm that get 80cfm for 18db. Im going to buy one just to test out and because I need a 140mm fan.
That's not a bad fan. A lot of performance for a 25mm instead of 37mm. Would love to see a modern version.
I can't say much about life span yet as this is my first set however I just picked up a set of Arctic F12PWM for my radiator, good flow, strong pressure, near silent even through my radiator.
Fluid dynamic bearing, 74CFM, I think I paid like $10 a pop.
By far my favorite fan I have owned to date.
