    I had a couple of the 14dba 120mm ones. No where near 14dba but undervolted I suppose they weren't that bad except I passed them on...

    I paid £20 for each fan , for the same money there are much better alternatives.

    ... hey my youngest daughter now has a Commando rig to replace the AMD 3500+ system I built her at Chrstmas.... if that ain't sharing I don't know what is! :-)

    BTW - help and support with the abit QuadGT is Soooooo good - No more ASUS for me! (the Commando and the M2V both bought in January were my first, and last ASUS boards). Sure you get problems with abit (which I have used for the past 4 years on other systems), so problem wise they may be similar, but you also get rapid help from abit, like SCAN they seem to care.

    you ain't kidding


    @EtheAv8r
    if that ain't sharing I don't know what is! :-)
    so does that mean u had them yourself

    yes think we've shared same opinion on asus for a good while. will only buy asus again if the board has some features that make it head & shoulders(+trunk) ahead of the opposition.

    How's it clocking??
    take care

    are yate loon fans essentially the same as nexus fans, just under a different name?

    also, i am thinking of maybe getting this one, as nexus/yate loon seems difficult to get hold of...

    The Nexus 120mm (1000rpm) is a rebranded Yate Loon D12SL (1350rpm). The only difference is in the speed.

    As advised by Supershanks in the post below yours, get Yate Loon or other fans from Silencio.

    I've used him a couple of times and excellent service. Many other guys here have used and same level of service.

    The fan I'd like to try out is the following one but I already have 5 spare fans

    Ive got a Silent Sharkoon 120mm in the front after reading good things in CustomPC.

    It is actually very quiet.

    I for one will never use SilenX products. A few years back, they used several fictitious user-IDs over at spcr (Silent PC Review) to rave about how good SilenX products were.

    When spcr rumbled that they were deliberately trying to mislead people they got all sheepish and apologetic, however do you really want to support a company that resorts to such low-life tactics?

    I've personally found Scythe fans to be excellent - quieter than Sharkoon. Sadly I've never tried Y-L, Nexus or a modern Panaflo.

    I've got Nexus, Yate Loon and Sharkoon fans but no Scythe

    I was going to buy a Scythe E but it was a bit expensive (around £12) and I rememebered how much I'd spent on SilenX fans

    Yes but which one? I have the both the Sharkoon 120 1000rpm and it is very quiet, but does not shift anywhere near as much air as the Sharkoon 120 2000rpm, which is noisier, but can be throttled down to slower and quieter for normal use, and wound up when additional cooling is required when in performance mode.

    Still to try the Yate Loons, but I do have LOTS of spare fans now!

    If you have the Sharkoons then there isn't much point in getting a Yate Loon D12SL unless you're going for the Blue LED one

    I got the Yate Loon D12SH-12 2200 RPM.

    You are probably right....

    They may be a bit quieter at high output.... they may not, I also got a bunch of Noctua 120 fans....... as my wife would tell you, I am a bit of a spendthrift - not!

    The fans will all get used some-day - I have build 4 new systems this past 3 weeks....
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.
