120mm Much Quieter than 92mm?
« on: May 03, 2005, 08:55:45 PM »

So in the center of my left side panel, I have a 92mm fan (Antec) which is vented to blow in onto my HSF.  I was messing around with a ruler and found that a 120mm fanhole would cover up the 92mm fanhole, screws and all.  So that got me thinking.  And I'm thinking about buying this 120mm green LED fan to match how my case is green and whatnot.  Plus the green LED is cheaper than non-LED.

Yes, 120mm fans are slower but push more air than a 92mm

Get a 120x38 instead of a 120x25. ;)

A good 92mm fan will be quieter than a sh*tty 120mm, and still move the same amount of air.

(example: Panaflow vs Sunon)

Yeah but this is an Antec and a Thermaltake...no sorries about sh*tty fans between them.  The only x38mm fans include both Panaflow and Sunon...which of those is the "sh*tty" one?

Sunon. Duh :P

Also, Tt doesn't make all that good fans, they aren't ball bearing fans, or atleast the one on the silent boost. (which i assume is a "good" Tt fan...)

Go with the panaflo that has the fluid bearing or a cooler master rifle bearing fan.  Or just a 120mm sleeve bearing.  Ball bearings will last longer but tend to be on the noisy side.
