On the 120mm side of the scale, the increases are even larger. The Blackfire4 fans have a ~17% increase in Air Flow, a ~25% increase in Speed, and a ~14% increase in Noise. We should definitely be able to tell the difference between the two fans. The real question is, how much is this going to affect the cooling side?
Unfortunately, I don’t have the proper means of measuring the dBA levels. I can assure you that the GELID fans are noticeably quieter than the ACRyan Blackfire4’s. I could probably drop the noise level another notch or two by changing my fan grills out, but the noise really doesn’t bother me seeing that I normally have a headset on.
Due to the Wing 9-12 fans coming in the UV-Blue rather than UV-Green we was shooting for. I didn’t go crazy with the lighting. The Green lighting I run, simply over powers the UV Blue, not to mention the fact that my UV lighting is in the fans themselves. With a little change in my lighting though, this does have some possibilities… Hell, it might just be enough to fuel another mod on this chassis (well not this one but one just like it).
