Crazy About Fans


Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


Anyways since I am going to start a computer club for the start of next year, I gathered some computer enthusiasts at Simon Fraser University and we had a look at some awesome rigs. Around 6 people participated so it wasn't much. Its hard enough to get people to join during a summer semester when most individuals have their summer off (if not enough members join by next month, the club will not be funded and probably won't be able to be created until the start of next year).

Anyways out of all the rigs, this guy's (Geoff's) rig was extremely noticable. I mean how can you miss this thing. Its an Antec 300, has no LED fans, no cathodes....nothing except that it makes the equivalent noise as someone starting their car.

I am dead fricken serious. He has a older quad core intel, 6 GB ddr3 ram and 2 x HD 4870's. His rig gets hot and I mean real real damn HOT (he uses a passive cooler for the OCed HD 4870's with fans zip tied to it and they are still hot like hell). So his solution to eliminate heat from his case? Delta Fans.

Delta Fans are some of the most powerful fans you can ever find for your computer. This model was 6 x more powerful than your average 120 mm fan and cost close to $40 dollars each. It also blows out 250 CFM and the pressure is damn huge. It literally feels like someone is blowing your face with a hair dryer.

But man are they fackingg loud. And he doesn't have one, he has two of those fans in his case and 3 Scythe SlipStream fans for intake. Usually he puts the delta fans to 70% speed using his fan controller. Just for the heck of it he wanted to show us its true power and he used his iPhone dBA meter app to calculate how loud his total case can get when on MAX SPEED.

~69 facking dBA !!!! Its as loud as your average household vacuum cleaner !!! I walked down the hall way and went into an empty class 9 rooms away and you can still hear the damn thing.

Lol so if you want some fans that can push a ton of air and rival the noise your car makes? Just go to newegg or NCIX for some of these fackers.






Wow :blink: i really don't understand a word that's in that text lol, but that might be because i understand shit of computers 8-)
69 dB em wtf?! Not the best for late night gaming Im sure the neighbours would call the cops after a couple of nights. I dont know how hot HOT! is but my laptop feels like you've just touched the hob on an oven when you feel the bottom (where the battery is) after a couple of hours. The fan on that thing is soooooooooo pathetic and it makes a pretty loud noise when it actually decides to switch on. Its beyond saving now though nothing short of a miracle could fix that thing.

Maybe you should replace your laptop fan with a Delta Fan =D. Then you can enjoy the nice soothing sound of a mini vacuum cleaner everytime you start your computer
Hey Onion never say really old comuter followed by "dual core" I never even seen one yet ...Dell opitplex GX280 And the O.E. fan use to whine like a shaved cat ..i Took it out, Cleanned it and WD-40 ..good and quiet i also added a antec LED 80mm fan under the stock one and removed the stock caseround the fan for more room I'm getting 31 degees inside the cpu case BTW if you don't hear from me for awhile its cause i'm installing a 300gig maxtor HD IDE from my old 40 gig one. still trying to play with the slave / master wire thingy <<>>>>>you know it will be bad when the word "thingy" is used : )

My 2 cents on fans : More is better then big and fast BIG + FAST =Noise More smaller ones for each area of heat i find works better I.E. Memory, CPU, Power, Etc Heat sinks too I have 4 fans on a low end computer 2 Case fans 1 Power fan 1 Video card fan ..seems to be good temps all the time
