H80i Jet Engine! Need quiet fans.

I just installed on my PC an H80i. Goddammit, the sound is really loud and annoying.

Anybody got recommendations on good fans that are quite but don't sacrifice performance?

Set a custom curve on the fans it's only audible if I am listening for it in my PC.

This, having the fans at a higher speed wont make a huge difference in performance.

Scythe Gentle Typhoons are a great option and a better performer than Noctuas for the same or lower price.

What does this mean? You mean twisting the blades so that they curves more?

 

Thanks!!!!!! :)

Lol no. It is using software to tell the fans to stay at their slowest speed, instead of it ramping up with the temps increase. Or setting a curve that only increase the fan speed when it gets as hot as you prefer.

Go here. See the second image how it "curves" up? That's why it is called a curve, the fan speed increases and the temps increase.

Speedfan has a steep learning curve. You could try using corsair link to do the same thing, it is easier to understand. If you can manage to get the software working. Same idea behind it regardless of the software you use though.

OMG just realized that it's supposed to come with a software. No wonder that it has USB cable included to be connected to the mobo. :P

 

I'm downloading it now at Corsair website. Thanks!!!

 

This is my first time using high end cooler, so yeah, I'm nooby. xD

I have had great results with Aerocool DS fans for radiators and AIO coolers. Definitely not the cheapest, but the fans are indeed very quiet and performance is on par with the lower db fans. I would recommend them over the Jetflows. The Aerocools are just as quiet, if not more so (at the same voltages) that the Typhoon I have for comparison. The Jetflows are decent as well (And cheaper, IIRC) but definitely a good bit louder than the DS/Typhoons.

 

Other nice thing is the DS fans come in colors that aren't polarizing, like the Noctuas.

 

Hope that helps!

I found with this cooler, theres only a couple of degrees between quiet mode and performance mode. around 1100 rpm on the fans is about all i can personally tolerate from this cooler. it is ridiculously loud.
