Anybody Know of a Quiet 92mm Fan?

Discussion in 'Abit' started by Colon Terminus, Jan 13, 2005.

  1. I purchased a Thermalright XP-90 heatsink to put on my 3.0GHz. Northwood
    OC'd to 3.6GHz. I put a 92mm Panaflo fan on the heatsink and it is waaay too
    noisy, drives me outta the room with my hands firmly clasped over my ears.
    Oh, the board is an IS7, so the post is sorta on topic.

    This system is used for video processing, so its always gonna be running at
    close to 100% CPU usage, ergo I'll need pretty good airflow.

  2. Do you have personal experience with this fan? And know for sure it is
    quiet? The Panaflo I bought was represented as quiet as well, quieter than
    the one you pointed me to. Its noise level was said to be 19 dBA where this
    one claims 21 dBA. In reality, the Panaflo is probably 47-48 dBA at full

    have you looked into the 92 MM fan that is provided with the Zalman
    CNPS7000CU and ALCU coolers... that one seems quiet to me... that is always
    subjective though...

    throttle your existing panaflo to 5 or 7 or 9v and have a look wether it
    brings a sufficient airflow or not.
    there are adapters enough to buy.

  6. Thanks, Tom, for your feedback. I just happen to have a retired CNPS7000CU
    in my parts bin and hadn't thought about it. I just looked at it and came to
    the conclusion that I'm not enough of an engineer to figger out how to adapt
    that fan to the XP-90. I do reacll the 7000CU as being relatively quiet
    though, even at full song.

    Try and which has different (and cheap)
    Panaflo models. Perhaps your present fan is the H1A highspeed model? Look
    for the M1A medium or L1A low-speed models.
