Cheap Nexus silent fans = 8cm £3.07 | 12cm £4.16

£3.07 @ Novatech
Bargin price for probably the best 120mm/80mm fans you can buy. These actually have an accurate rating of 22dba rather than a massively exaggerated one like normal, and still puh alot of air. Read More

Plus £2.49 delivery!

Voted hot. These fans have a great reputation at http://www.silentpcreview.com (and are in their list of recommended fans) and sell for more elsewhere: £6 and £9 for the 80mm and 120mm fans at Komplett, not including delivery, while Kustom PCs are charging £12 ex. delivery for the 120mm fan!

P&P is £2.49 for one or two 80mm fans and goes up to £4.99 if you order more than that, or any quantity of 120mm fans.

It’s showing postage as £5.86 for just for one fan. :-(
Still, these usually cost £12 – 15 each including postage so £18.34 for 3 inclusive of postage is a very good price. Voted Hot especially if you want 2 or more.

If you run these at 600 rpm they are silent but still shift enough air to cool a 3GHz C2D provided you have a decent heatsink that accepts 120mm fans like a Scythe Ninja.

Voted cold. They're just fans, and aren't any different to the things you pay 50p for elsewhere, except maybe a different colour, and with better packaging.
#5
dxx - don't vote cold becuase ur knowledge of hardware is extremely poor. These are normally around £15 each and are superb cooling fans.
#6
My knowledge is extremely poor? Aww, bless.

I got to agree with minimal_fuss that dxx is talking out his exhast vent (all fans are the same ....yeah right) but nevertheless these aren't completely silent....I'll only buy 14dbA or less for my case, which unless you're a tawny owl, are in essence silent.
#8
You are right, these are great fans, Umm, I never shopped at Novatech, I'll stick with Akasa and Hiper fans as these are just as quiet at very similar prices from Ebuyer and they do free delivery for £50 shop. I just have to wait a bit till I need to shop.

most 14dba rated fans arn't actually 14dba....SilenX 14dba fans for instance actually work out louder than these in the real world (as most reviews will confrim).

Anyone quoting 14dba is a lying *&%*, that's completely impossible unless they're measing from about 10 metres away. At 1 metre, anything under 25 is effectively silent (and every 3db means a doubling in volume). The background noise in the typical home is 40db after all, so there's only so much you can do.
#11
Unfortunately you can’t even vaguely trust the sound levels that most manufacturers put on their fans so the best way to compare is to look at independent review sites with SilentPCReview being the daddy.

A Nexus 120mm at full speed is certainly not silent but if you drop it down to ~600–700 RPM it’s good to go. And I mean truly silent, even at 3 in the morning when there’s no background noise and you can hear the spiders fart.

It's Silenx that are quoting 14dBA!

i have one of their fans.....I have no measuring equipment so I can't say whether they're truly 14dBa or not, but what I can say, when used in conjuntion with a zalman fan controller set at half way....I can't hear it unless I get closer than a foot....& I live in a anechoic chamber.

Incidentally, what price is this Nexus 120mm normally?
#13
Very good price for what once were hard to get hold of fans, comparible fans from Noctua and Scythe retail at about £13 plus p&p and the Yate-Loon which if I remember correctly is nearly exactly the same as Nexus were (when I last checked) unavalible to buy in the UK.

As for dBA figures ignore them go off peoples advice, in my experience a 120mm 1200RPM fan is excellent at shifting air at top speed but produces mainly a "whoosh" noise of the air being pushed. Lower the voltage to cut the RPM to about 500 - 600 (any lower than 400 and they tend to stop) and they still push quite a lot of air but are nearly silent. Note the nearly, no fan of any kind can be completly silent but mine at 5v are quiet enough for me to leave on and sleep through, and I'm a faily light sleeper! In my system I have 3 120mm Noctua's, 2 120mm Scythe's and 1 92mm Scythe which is by far the loudest.

I will be getting some Nexus to give them a try, oh and i've also used hiper and akasa both of which are ok but thats about all I would say about them.

I've actually ordered a few up too & will run them at 7V....a good price - many thanks to the OP.

In terms of hardware, yes.

Superb fans, voted hot :)
