New fan on a Vendetta 2?
 
Hi all,
I decided I wanted to put another fan on my OCZ Vendetta 2 CPU cooler (currently using stock fan) so I can get a bit better temps and a bit less noise.

Would there be a difference with noise and temps If i got one of these two?

NCIX.com - Buy Yate Loon D12SL-12 120MM RED/BLACK Fan 1350RPM 47CFM 28DB 3/4PIN Sleeve Bearing OEM Sleeved Retail - D12SL-12-RED/BLACK In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Noctua NF-P12-1300 120MM Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan 1100-1300RPM 63-92M3/H 12.6-19.8DBA Molex - NF-P12-1300 In Canada.

Thanks in advance.

You can really only run 1 fan on that HSF without getting into some odd mounting setup.

With that said grab the Yate and you'll be plenty happy.

The Gelid Silent 12 fans are also dec. But Yates win at that price.

lol oh lawd. i think you guys misread me haha. I meant I wanted to REPLACE the stock lol. And I was reading that a yate and the noctua actually doesnt cool better than the stock fan... is that true?

No clue if thats true but if your going to replace it with a S-flex don't, didn't do anything different for me. Makes me want to pick up a hyper 212, but CC only has the old version..

Both the Yate and Noctua will have a higher static pressure than the stock one which should help.

Altho it really comes down to how much your pushing your cpu or not.

So I will get lower temps? Like now I am getting 36C average on my q9550 at 3.8. Would a Noctua bring it down to say 32C average?

Idle temps really mean nothing its the temps your cpu hits under load that really matter.

Will a Yate/Noctua make a big change its hard to say as there are lots of things to factor in.

Generally speaking Yate/Noctua SHOULD perform better then general run of the stock HSF fans.
