My System Specs

Default Fan advice

Hello,

I have recently replaced my top Antec Tri-Cool with a Yate Loon D12BL-12-UB. The look is nice, the sound is nice, but the cooling potential is a bit lower than what my Tri-Cool could do. I am then considering getting new fans that would be fairly quiet and move lots of air.

So I have been looking at some fans and some of the ones I am considering are:
Scyte S-Flex SFF21F This one is the "weakest of the 2 and based on silentpcreview.com, it pushes 6 less CFM and makes 5 less dBA than a Tri-Cool. So, I am assuming the SFF21G would fairly similar in terms of CFM.
Scyte S-Flex SFF21G

For now I am not in the process of buying, but more of analysing my options. What do you guys think of those 2 fans and do you have any other suggestions ?

I use both and you would be ok with either one.

Are you comparing your Yate to tri cool set at high?

Well, the Yates at high are more comparable to the Tri Cool set at medium I find. That is in terms of airflow, not noise.

Although I have yet to try them, I have heard some good things so far about CM's lineup of new Fans.
I'd give one of them a try.
