    Default Time for a build but..... What fans??

    I have long bee a proponent of function over form and as such have built in the past with Gentle Typhoons and Deltas but....

    I have been out of the loop (sorry) for a while now and GT's are extinct.

    What is the latest and greatest rad fan ?? Something that can do the duty of 1850 or 2250 GT's

    I've in my system the Swiftech Helix PWM fans, they are great comparing price/performance/silence, also recently I've installed another 240mm RAD and paired it with 4 Cougar PWM Fans, the Cougars are lot more silent then Swiftech but also double the price.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    I love my 120mm Cougar Vortec PWM fans. I have about 12 of them in four systems. I also have 6 of them in 140mm size.
    They are quiet and powerful.

    I have one PC with all Noctua fans in it. (120mm & 140mm)
    They're just as quiet, but cost more than Cougars do.

    I will put in a plug for Noctua's new 24v 120mm fan. That guy even outperformed the cougar by a small amount. It runs at half the speed at 12v so I recommend the 3000 RPM one. However, the Cougars are probably far more cost effective. Also, it's only 120mm that worked so well with rads. The 140mm performed like any other Noctua.

    GTs aren't extinct, far from it actually. They simply don't bear the Scythe name any longer. You can get them right on Amazon in the UK - https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb...ty%2Caps%2C556

    Having used the GTs, eLoops, Vardars, F140MP, Cougars, Noctuas, etc......I have always liked the GTs best. The Vardars come close, but something about the tonality irks me. The eLoops are are great fans, but get louder at higher rpm. I actually use the Phanteks F120MP on my rad, performance comes fairly close to the GTs, great tone and they match my build. The Cougar HDB are very quiet, but don't move enough air, and Noctuas are great solid fans, but not spectacular performers on rads.

    Did you ever try the Noctua 24v 120mm on a rad? That's the only Noctua I've ever used that exceeded expectations.

    The 12 and 24V variations have no difference in performance - same fan with different input voltage, same rpm, cfm, static, etc. The iPPC are great on paper, not so much in actual usage. Louder at similar speeds as GT, F120MP or Vardar while actually delivering less air through the rad. I also found the tone of them really invasive in comparison to those three. I suppose the extra up to 3000 rpm is nice if you are using them as industrial fans, or your tower is in a different room, but 3000 rpm fans on a rad simply isn't bearable from a noise standpoint.

    I really need to get some GTs some day. They're pretty pricey though so it will have to be down the road sometime.

    I had no idea I could still get GT's after I saw them going out of stock everywhere a while ago. I just never look on amazon for stuff like that. thanks Ciarlatano

    I know what you mean about tone and how some fans are irksome. One that surprised me was a thee blade 38mm Delta EFB. Running at 7v (2150 and a true 8o cfm) you can hear it but it has such a low note. The other matter when running multiple same version fans is of course resonance but found a way round that one with a small voltage controller from ebay for each fan allowing me to tune each one different.

    Yes, but the Phanteks is quieter and moves more air at lower rpm. The Helix is a very underrated fan, especially for the price.

    Happy to help. A lot of people thought the GTs were disappearing. They are actually easier to get in the US now than when Scythe had them, and the price has dropped here as well.

    I run some of the 2150 rpm version now and I have one sitting on the desk facing me in hot weather

    The Amazon ones seem to have an odd nomenclature... D1225C12B6ZPA-64. I reckon AP45 was easier
