My System Specs

Default Fan advice

I would like to change the 3 scythe ultra kaze for 3 xigmatek 120mm fan one...

The thing is that I don't know if I'm gonna lost a lot or not?

Scythe kama kaze 3000rpm, 131 cfm, high static pressure

Xigmatek 1500rpm 61 cfm

What should I expect?
Will I need to place 6 fan to get the same performance as before?
I'm doing this for esthetic's and NOISE!
I never use the fan at full speed, 45 db x3 is unacceptable even when gaming.

Using a fan controller(scythe one) and a swiftech triple radiator.

thx!

Edit : Just saw it was for a rad. You are better with the Gelid wing 12 or the scythe gentletyphoon 1450 and 1850 RPM.

I won't put green or yellow or even green fan in this setup.

It's orange or black.

But the question is, will I lost alot in performance or not?

My GT 1450s seem to do quite nicely on my HWLabs SR-1 360. Nice and quiet too.

Lol if you get the admiral 700 even without fan it will be nice:P Be aware that with these rad you will need fan that have good pressure ( not CFM ). GT's will work fine.

No one knows really. But it is believed that they should have rather low air resistance.
