View Full Version : Which Fan To Use

04-27-03, 10:39 PM
My current HSF setup is an OCZ Dominator2 with Delta "screamer" 60mm fan. I have a Thermalright SLK-800 Heatsink coming in, and with it the Thermaltake SmartFanII (the 80mm one).

Now I also have at my house a Vantec Tornado 80mm fan. So my question is which fan should I use, the Tornado or the SmartFan? Note that noise levels on the two are somewhat of an issue, the Tornado has a 55dbA rating (equal to my screamer), and 84cfm of airflow, while the SmartFanII has a 44dbA rating and pushes 74cfm of airflow.

SmartFan is probably more than enough.

Go for a Panaflo fan if you want good airflow with decent noise levels. :bash:
