Which you have many other threads about that same subject...

As for the fans. I can fully recommend Scythe fans. I'm using one in conjunction with my Thermalright 120 and it's going great. The fan comes with a back plate controller too. I'm running mine at about 1/4 speed and the CPU idles at 30C and maxes out at around 50-55C.

High pressure would cause too much turbulence trying to get through the tightly packed fins. I would imagine and actually reduce the amount of air getting through. If you do find a fan to high pressure, just run it at a lower speed.

I got the Silverstone FM2122B is that a good fan for the Ultra 120 E?

The Noctua S12 is too low pressure right?

Silverstone should be fine.

The S12 is a very good fan for the Ultra 120. It is often bundled with Ultra 120 by many online shops. Though the Scythe combo is more popular.

Are those core temp temps?

The why did Mythy say that it's bad?

I dunno. You will have to ask him that.

Here is a thread, the last few posts have a user who is using a S12 with the Ultra 120.

So you DON'T need a high static pressure for the heatsinks?

http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=which_fan&lng=en

Even Noctua it self doesn't seem to recommend the S12 for "tight finned heatsinks"
This too

I'm not trying to be rhetorical here, quite the opposite, I'm seeking your opinion.

I can only comment on the Scythe. I have never used the S12, BUT I did post a report from a user using one and I have heard it's a good fan about the place. Though if Noctua themselves don't recommended it for tight heatsink it would be best to avoid using it then.

Stick to what mythy recommended for best results. Either the Scythe or Silverstone.

crainger, you missed my post? Your temps are very nice for a quad, just wondering if they're core temps or bios temps.

Oh sorry.

Those are core temps. I assume the core is the best place to grab the temp...

Nice man, this means your BIOS temps are like 15C for idle.
