Hey guys

as the name suggests i was wondering if the Noctua NF-F12-PWM 120mm 1500rpm PWM Focused Flow Fans are better than the fans that come with the corsair h80? Im thinking of getting them changed, i know they will run significantly quieter but not sure how it will perform in terms of cooling. Will i see better temps? At the moment i get around 70-85 degrees during half an hour on prime95 (i7-950 @ 4.4ghz), and around 50-60 degrees while playing games like bf3 etc...

Cheers

These are the specs for the H80 fans while on "high" setting:

2500 RPM
92 CFM (Says Corsair, but I don't trust that info for a minute.)
39 DBA

The Noctuas are choice if you wish to keep it quiet. But they really aren't the best choice when it comes to liquid cooling.

Consider the following fans:

The San Ace fans are among the best when it comes to medium/high RPM fans. But the Typhoons have a very attractive RPM/DBA/CFM ratio. Not to mention, Scythe also offers several lower RPM models of the Typhoon series. You also can't go wrong with some simple Yate Loons.

Yea i was contemplating on whether there were any other fans apart from the noctuas that are more ideal for liquid cooling. You basically did the research for me =p
