    They look like a rebranding of existing Noiseblocker fans ... is that the case? Or manufactured under license? Or what? "NB-eLoop" ... as in NoiseBlocker-eLoop? I have those fans; they look the same. Performance PCs shows the company name as Phobya though, and not Noiseblocker.

    Unlike Kenny's method, you don't need any test instruments just use any house hold garbage bag, determine its volume, make a air duct or tunnel then attach the bag on one end, the fan on the other. Now get a digital timer and time the time to take to inflate the bag then apply to this formula;

    cfm = 0.1406 Vbag/t

    Vbag = the volume of the bag
    t = it's the time in second

    Or you can use this table for estimation

    Table 1 Small garbage bag (66 x 91 cm [26 x 36 in.])

    Time to inflate* Flow of air into the bag
    2 seconds 35 L/s (75 cfm)
    4 seconds 20 L/s (40 cfm)
    10 seconds 10 L/s (20 cfm)

    L/s = litres per second;
    cfm = cubic feet per minute

    * For deflation, add a second. Therefore, 35 L/s would take about three seconds and 20 L/s about five seconds.

    Table 2 Big garbage bag (79 x 119 cm [31 x 47 in.])

    Time to inflate*Flow of air into the bag
    2 seconds 100 L/s (210 cfm)
    4 seconds 50 L/s (105 cfm)
    6 seconds 35 L/s (75 cfm)
    10 seconds 20 L/s (40 cfm)

    L/s = litres per second; cfm = cubic feet per minute

    Ok, James go have some fun. If you test the fans regularly then it's best to purchase the instrument but a good instrument can cost you an arm and a leg. You can pick up a cheap anemometer on ebay and do like Kenny did by using this formula;

    Cubic Feet per Minute = (fpm * area)

    fpm = feet per minute
    area = sq feet

    Thanks Mike, I used a Anemometer I picked a while back. Actually, my father in law picked it up for me. Since he is a AC/Heating contractor, he got the best tool for me. (not cheap BTW). The tool cost about $300 bucks, but this allows you to input settings and specs based on what your testing. Ex: I made a 120mm x 120mm x 120mm box and attached the fan on one end and the tool as a sensor (has fan blades) that will calculate wind speed and convert it to CFM. This tool saves allot of time, but most fan testers don't like to invest into tools like this since they are not cheap, but I didn't pay for it but it has come in handy.

    I thought I had mentioned I used a CFM reader in my review, but if I didn't, I will look at it again and add it in..

    Garbage bag method works also, but using a Anemometer works so much better and easier. Let's equipment to set up.

    What Tony said pretty much sums is up. I did this before, but it takes allot of space.

    NoiseBlocker Fans are made by Phobya from what I understand from aquatunings site.

    They look identical; probably rebranding of the fans, or tailored color variations, from whomever is the original manufacturer. Given the model name "NB-eLoop" listed for all of them, I betcha NoiseBlocker *is* the originator and those other two are simply rebrandings. Just like what happens with power supplies.

    Yea, from what I can see now, looks like they are being out sourced and resold... Common practice in the electronics world.
