Test Results

We tested these fans on my older setup consisting of a pretty hot running AMD 965 C2 overclocked to 3.8 Ghz and within a case. The case that we used was a Cooler Master Storm Sniper and it has been modified to ensure some pretty decent air flow. The contenders that I did have with me at the time of the testing were as follows:
1. The Cooler Master Excalibur

2. Yate Loon D12SH-12 High Speed

3. Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1450 rpm (D1225C12B4AP-14)

4. Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850 rpm (D1225C12B5AP-15)
Let me say that the Scythe Gentle Typhoons are my favorites and they are the only fans that you can barely hear at full speed.

All the fans were run in a push-pull setup, with OCCT 1 hour testing their cooling powers. The heatsink used was the Thermolab Baram.

Lets start with the results of the Gentle Typhoons 1450 rpm.





The Gentle Typhoons 1450rpm managed to get a idle of 37 and reached a high of 59.5 degrees. That's not so bad taking into account how hot this particular CPU actually runs.

Next up are the Yate Loon High Speeds.





The Yate Loons fare better, topping out at around 55.5 degrees as compared to the 59.5 degrees of the lower speed GTs. The idle temps we recorded for this attempt was around 37 degrees.

Lets now move on to the Ultra High Speed 1850 Gentle Typhoons:





The 1850 Gentle Typhoons manage an amazing 54 degrees at load and an idle of 35.5 degrees. Remember, this is with minimal noise output and basically shows the strength of the high air pressure that these fans manage to generate.

Finally we come to the Excalibur. One point to note is that since this is a close cornered fan, I had to use rubber bands to keep the fans on the heatsink.




And I was amazed. The Excalibur's manage to stay on idle at 34 degrees and manage to keep the CPU temps at 52.75 on load. Now that's an impressive result for any 120x25mm fan.

And just to recap:

Thanks guys...but please remember that 30 db for that kind of specs is pretty fine...the Yateloons have similar specs, with lower air pressure and they are rated at 40 + dBA. So somewhere u have to trade sound vs. CFM and air pressure....

Oh and to add to that, it undervolts without any issues...so use a fan controller, its barely audible at 1500-1750 rpm...it only picks up at around 1800+
