Which 120mm is right for me?
« on: August 16, 2003, 01:03:25 PM »

I have a BIX Radiator and was wondering. Is the 80cfm 120mm fan good enough?
I have a hcoice of
1) 80cfm LED fan
2) 104cfm fan with 41 Dba
3) 130cfm Fan with 50dba

 :-?  :-?  :-?  :-?
+ I am also adding a fan shroud. SO tell me, is number 1 good enough or is it worth compromising the noise for the 130cfm?

REPLY ASAP since choice 2 auction ends in 1 hour.
Also my Radiator will be cooling DangerDen blocks: 478 block, Canterwood Z Chip block, and dangerden's maze 4 GPU. :-?

go for 3 if you dont care about noise, and most of the time someone who wants a 120mm fan is gaming, gaming makes noise, gaming drowns out fan noise, then when your not gaming...........turn your pc off or crank up the stereo  :)

well if my memory serves me right (im wrong allready  :P ) 100db is about the same as a plane taking off, and anything under 27db is silent i think
