Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have some Corsair high performance static pressure fans but they are super noisy. What is the best quiet option for me?

Phanteks MP fans, Noctua NF-A12/F14, Fractal HP fans and Scythe Gentle Typhoon. Some might want to put the be quiet Silent Wings 3 here but I myself don't.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

In addition to what Jurrunio said, the maglev fans Corsair has (as well as the EK Vardars aka spiritual successor to GTs) seem to be pretty good for rads as well.

SW3's are top notch. Have 22 of them in my SMA8 build. Settled on them after buying Gentle Typhoons, Noctua f12 i2000's, Corsair MLs and EK Vardar F4's and comparing them all attached to an EK 360XE in p/p config cooling an OC'd 3770K and 1080ti.  At low RPMs (under 600), the SW3's, Noctuas and GTs gave me the same water Delta T within half a degree, Vardars were a little worse, and MLs were noticably worse. SW3s were the quietest out of all of them. GTs were quiet too, but they have an awful motor noise if you go much above 600 rpms. SW3s dont sound like anything other than air movement even at max speed.

 

Disclaimer is that i run 400 RPM in P/P config on HWL GTX rads.

NF-F12 from Noctua.

 

FYI, i have some Gentle Typhoons myself and im not impressed with their noise tbh, they not loud by any means but they do hum at anything above 1000rpm, so i would stick with Noctua.
