Crazy About Fans
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.
