Cooler Master Announces the Silencio FP Series Fans

Cooler Master will be releasing their Silencio FP series of fans. I wonder how they will compete with the competition from Noctua and Corsair.



Read more on Cooler Master's Silencio FP series 120mm fans here.

I am interested in how do they perform against EK's new Vardar fans. Vardar F4 seems like a good choice for radiators.

11dBA @1200RPM

Now thats big talk, quite frankly I don't believe that. If they prove me wrong in independent testing I will be impressed.

Claiming 11dBa is quite bold indeed, but in a real case scenario anything below 15 (or even 20) is not audible right? Also static pressure is still in favor of Noctua, even with their L.N.A.. But then again, these are black/grey

[email protected]@1200rpm is not physically possible because the sound of air moving will be far louder than the stated 11dbA.

It could be 11dba. But it also depends on the frequencies that it outputs that our ears will pick up first. It's how a lot of companies get that super low dBA reading at higher RPMs because they measure for the lowest rating but the frequenices the motor outputs is high enough for our eyes to hear it. I remember reading an article about it but can't find it.

Look at the usual specs by CM... for example, Sickeflows. Those fans were fantastic on paper but they actually kinda sucked.

Only reviews are trustworthy, and I personally like the ones from Coolingtechnique

Only half of them sucked,...........

11dB is quite the claim. I look forward to seeing some reviews. (and pricing too)
