Are NZXT Stock fans really THAT bad?

Guest MarcoTheNoob

Hello everyone, here is another question.

 

I wanted to make my build in the NZXT H400i, and keep the stock fans, but I heard that they are really, really bad.

 

Is that true? Because I dont really mind noise as long as it doesnt sound like an screeching banshee, but I wonder if they have airflow.

 

Thanks in advance. :)

I'm assuming the fan pushes air in the advertised direction, so it can't be that bad at the end of the day. NZXT's H series cases generally have decent airflow so I wouldn't worry about it that much.

I swapped out the fans on my H500 for aesthetic reasons, but they were never particularly loud or poorly-performing.

Think it does 1.2mmH2O SP and 65~cfm at max rpm, and is around 30dBA at max rpm. Not that bad but not great

No

 

The H series comes with 3 AER F120 fans

Comparing them to Corsair AF120's they're almost the same (Note these aernt PWM)

There are far worse stock case fans out there, but there are also better. They'll be fine for the average user.
