What brand of fans do you have in your case?


Recommended Posts

Fans for cpus tend to have more static pressure to push air through the fins.

And regular fans use dynamic pressure? What does this mean specifically?

Sorry if I'm asking a lot of questions, but I'm not really that knowledgable when it comes to PC fans. The build I'm planning this year will be my very first build and so there are some areas that I'm not quite familiar with yet.


ON A 7 MONTH BREAK FROM THESE LTT FORUMS. WILL BE BACK ON NOVEMBER 5th.

No. Dynamic pressure is an entirely different thing altogether.

Other fans tend to be more open for airflow and blow more air everywhere by using more fins that are wider apart. 

 

It's like this: Air flow (left) Static Pressure (right)

Haha, nice demo and drawing! Alright so obviously the one on the right is better for case fans?

No... Airflow moves more air but pressure is needed in cramped spaces like for a heatsink. It depends on the scenario.

Well for my Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 case (see link below), would the static pressure be better?

I can post a video if you need a better understanding of the case.

No need for a video. 

SP fans would be quite appropriate.

Okay, thank you very much for your help, it's greatly appreciated. :D

I now know which fans I'm going to go with. :)

I don't think so. In my vast years of computing I have never had a hard drive overheat and the summers here in California can go as high as 105-110 degrees. 

 

Back OT;

 

I have Corsair fans in my C70 right now that came with the H100i, the case, and a few that my friend gave me. I have a 200m BitFenix fan that I am going to put into the Corsair 250D when it comes out.

Ah! Okay. Well I'll skip that one then. :)

You think 105-110°F is hot, and of course it is, but here in Australia this year and years past we've had temperatures as high as 50°C or 122°F. Quite warm.
