My System Specs

Default R4-BMBS-20PK-R0 vs R4-L2R-20AC-GP

Hey all,

After getting advise from a couple of people here, I am going with two of these, I have 2 of each. One is the sickle flow led fan and the other is the normal fan that comes with hyper 212.

The difference is a bit in CFM and also in noise level. And one looks better than the other. I am wondering which 2 should I go for. These fans are going to be going on a Prolimatech Megahalem. Also, it's for an I7 950 that I recently purchased from Immapc from here. Nice guy!

I havent gotten it yet, but I am just preparing myself. The plain model also has PWM and the led one doesnt as well.

So far I am really thinking of going with the hyper 212 fans, one on each end of the cooler intake and out. What do you think. Any advise or comments are more than welcome!

From my experience, the R4-L2R-20AC-GP does an excellent job of pushing air through heatsinks

Found something even better guys! Check out the scythe slip streams, 1900 rpm's and over 100 CFM, picked up two of these at canadacomputers today for 8.99! And they are really really good, pushing air in and out!
