Default Fan "A" vs Fan "B"

Fan "A" is the coveted San Ace 1011:
Current: 0.52A
Power: 6.24
RPM: 2600
CFM: 102.4 CFM
Pressure: 64.7Pa (6.6mm)
Noise: 39.0

Fan "B" is a unknown fan from a electronics shop:
Current: 1 Amp
Power: 12 W
Speed: 2400 RPM
Max Air: 121 CFM
Max Pressure: 5.6 mmH2O
Noise: 46 dBA


...

So the Fan "B"s are worth about $20 but ... look at their amperage and watts... its almost double of that of the san ace .. haahahaha. Its odd tho as it pushes more CFM at a lower speed but has a lower static pressure.

You've got some 1011's? Nice! I know Vapor over on XS actually verified that the San Ace's were nearly spot-on in their specs.

Are the blades on the mystery fan abnormally shaped? It's not impossible that a design might sacrifice static pressure for open flow, but I don't think I've ever seen a 120mm fan verified to push 120cfm at only 2400rpm. Even the good ones seem to need about 3000rpm before that happens.

# Size 120x120x38mm

# Noise 58 dB(A)
# Connector 3 pin
# RPM 3800
# Rated Voltage 18.20 Watts
# Rated Amparage 1.60 amps
# Modle # MD1238H



18.20watts @ 1.60amp!

18W on a three-pin connector? Better aim that fan at the motherboard plug to keep it cool!

Very cool design! Also, I would have gone for the San Ace fans too, but where to get them??

I've seen the brand mechatronics, so they're not really 'unknown', per say.

Am I deaf yet?

Anyway, why do you need high speed fans like these ones? And where'd you get your hands on the San Aces?!?!?! Those things are rare.

I didn't.

Everywhere I found who had them listed were out of stock.

One guy said the Macros were pretty good too.

Whats nice about fans like that is you can undervolt them to be able to get pretty results.
