Help me choose these small fans

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all..

 

I need 80mm fan to be used behind perforated case vent + dust filter as intake, and found these 80mm fans option here where I live,

 

1. Fractal Design R3

2. Deepcool Xfan

3. Noctua NF-R8 Redux

4. Cooler Master (not sure what's the model name, it's just stated as "original CM 80mm fan")

 

Which one should I get for my purpose to get the best output, airflow or static pressure optimized, any of which give the most use?

I dont have any idea about small fans, and does airflow vs pressure matter with this small size?

 

thanks

Ummm this is a ridiculous ask.  Look at the specs for each and make a choice.  Asking people to choose from four fans of obscure size is silly.

Wonder if someone has knowledge and experience about them. Otherwise, nevermind..

Sorry.  It is a slim chance someone will have experience with all four fans, but there is a chance and if you're gonna find someone with that experience then it will be on the internet.  I was being a jerk.  I apologize.

Honestly when it comes to these scenerios, I just go with the Noctua fan (non redux line) I need, because I know at the end of the day, their SSO2 bearing will last longer than the hardware that I want to cool.

The Noctua NF-A8? I ask to any retailers here, this fan is out of stock, only the redux one is available.

 

The Fractal Design fan is the most expensive among them all, wonder if it has any advantages over the others. Specs isnt better than NF-R8 tho..

 

Maybe I'm just overthinking about this

Well the redux won't last as long but the SSO bearing will still likely outlast whatever you are trying to cool.
