Enermax Fans

Hey,

So I've seen these before, and some of them look pretty cool, but how good are they in terms of CFM/cooling?

I have a water cooled setup, and am thinking of changing rad + fan.

Currently have some rubbish 120mm rad and fan.

Has anyone used these before? Noisy? Just look good and are useless?

ive seen a ton of watercooled builds on here made with the white cluster fans, they are low rpm but more something like 50cfm @ 800rpm or 1200rpm

TTL will tell u they are great, im gonna be loading my case with them soon

Im using 5 of the white ones in my rig. The figures they give on theyre site are very exagerated so dont expect silent fans shifting 50cfm or whatever. Mine are hooked up to a fan controller and usually have them running around 50%, still shift enough air and are near enough silent. At 100% they are still reasonably quiet, but would annoy me for general use, I only put them at 100% for gaming when I cant hear them anyway lol.

But yea, I'd happily recommend them to you, very nice fans indeed and come with some nice features too (removable blades, braided cable, rubber mounts etc)

Yeah the removable blades/rubber mounts etc. are appealing.

Thanks for your opinions.

They look like good fans, But at the end of the day you pay for what you get and at 10pounds they are good value seeing as you can take the rotor off for easy maintenance.

The Zalman ZM-F3 is a very good fan but its plain and simple. But half the price. You don't get led's, nice metal surround, or unique colour.

So at the end of the day its your decision. But I have seen many people use them in expensive builds and they seem to perform very well. I think they are one of the nicest looking fans on the market atm.
