My System Specs

Default Ask and Ye Shall Receive!

Well, I have always been a Fan (no pun intended) of CM Case Fans, but alas the best I could get out of them was 44CFM ones, and for me being a Windtunnel Type Guy, that was far from enough.
So, I switched a While Back to AeroCool Xtreme Turbine/ Yate Loons because they gave me a Measured 85CFM and were Blue LED.

I do use Tiger from time to time for Parts, and I have a very helpful Account Manager (for my Full time Job) who gives me the scoop on new arrivals.

Well, CM , you have won me back!
New Blue LED Fans on the Horizon (ETA is very soon for stock) that I will be adding to my Air Cooling Madness.

R4-L2R-20AC-GP - Cooler Master

90CFM, 2000rpm and a Whooping 3.04mmH20 Static Pressure. As soon as their order comes in , I will be picked up a whole bunch to Test. And, in true CM fashion, they are Half the Price of my Traditional AeroCools/Loons with better performance.

If anyone is interested, the Tiger Stock # is 3283-2042 (won't show them till they get stock).
As well, they will Have Green / Red and Smoke Colours too!

Just a Little FYI for everyone!!

Regards,
ST

Can they really achieve 19 dba at 2000 RPM?

Doubtful on that One (I dont' care about DBA though).

I would have to see them up close to see what they are made of, and what the Pitch is on the Blades (With count).
Probably more in the 30dBa range if they are anything like an Aerocool.

I'll know better once I get mine and have a close look.

Regards,
ST

Excellent... I'll be ordering at least 3 of these to replace my intake fans for behemoth, and perhaps an extra 2 for the Freezone elites if their static pressure is what they say. Mmmmmm for bluje leds in a black housing. hehe

Personally I can't stand CM Fans. I have one on the side of my CM 690 case, and another in my brother's rig and their just too loud. I haven't had any problems with Noctua at all. But hey, whatever satifies you, that's ight!

I'll have to admit though that the fan your posted looks stunning. I would buy it if it weren't for my experiences with them.

You never know Bo, new designs could mean better fans.

I am never one to take a bad experience with something from years ago and let it effect my current Judgement.
After all, I was burned 3 times by LG optical Drives...and yet , in the end, they released new ones, with better firmware, and well, I'm happy with them again.

To each their own, I can't wait to test these guys out!

Get some nice clear pictures while you're at it too so that I can see what they look like. Oh, and some audio too! HEHE....

Really? I have 2 120mm 44cfm blue LED fans and I can't hear them at all, not even running at full speed. Do you keep your tower on your desk beside you?

No it's actually on the ground with the fan on the other side of where I sit, so it's not even directed at me. I may try taking it out to hear the difference but i've put my ear up against it and that's where the noise is coming from.
