Best cheap solid white 120mm fans for radiators? (Going to work with Phanteks Halos)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm looking to buy new fans for my radiator, and I can't seem to find a lot of good white fans. I'm going to use it with phanteks Halos, so no lights please.

White fan blades only? Not even white LEDs?

Yes. Just white fan blades- I'm going to use them with Phanteks Halos.

If you can live with just the frame being a nice silver color (due to fan case being made of aluminum) you can get the baby San Ace 120L for 27$ : sanyo-denki-america-inc 120L 74.0 CFM (2.07m³/min) 0.159 in H2O (39.6 Pa)  @ 1950 rpm 2.52w 32dbA

 

It's much better than arctic : ~4mm h2o vs 2.2mm , 74CFM vs 53 ,,, but it's thicker at 38mm... also rated 100k hours

I've been rocking Fractal X2 GP-12s in the front of my case for years. Love em and they're super quiet.

Ok but does it have options for white fan blades?

If you are fine with (minimal) black frames, you can go with good ol' F12 Pros.

These?

You can vary the fan speed, right?

Also, do you know the static pressure? They're going on a radiator.

Phanteks F120MP? Offered in both black and white fan blade models, tho the frame is still black

The 3-pn version is voltage-controlled, and the PWM version is, well, PWM. There is also a thermistor version that adjusts its speed based on its sensor.

Arctic doesn't typically report much beyond air flow, but you can look for reviews, although some may be old (as the model is). It typically fares well for heatsinks, but it's push only - no way to mount as pull.

Well that's a killer. I need to have three push, three pull.

Ok well I've made my decision. Arctic P12s with Phanteks Halos Lux Digitals. I'm going to put the halos on the inside of the fan, pointing out, so that I can see the led's through the blades.
