Posted 21st Aug

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

  • OPTIMISED FOR STATIC PRESSURE: The fan guarantees extremely efficient cooling, even with increased air resistance, therefore, the P12 Silent is particularly suitable for use on heatsinks and radiators
  • HIGH QUALITY BEARING: Thanks to an alloy/lubricant combination developed in Germany, friction within the bearing is reduced and greater efficiency is achieved
  • VIRTUALLY SILENT MOTOR: At low fan speed, the motor is the main source of unwanted noise, a motor developed in Germany with an enhanced bearing reduces friction and noise
  • HIGH AIR RESISTANCE: Thus, the P12 Silent is especially effective when used on heatsinks and with higher air resistance, the motor of the fan was developed in Germany and is virtually silent
  • TECHNICAL DATA: Fan speed: 1050 RPM, Airflow: 24.1 CFM/40.95 m³/h (@ 1050 RPM), Noise Level: 0.08 Sone (@ 1050 RPM), Pin: 3-pin

This type of fan is suitable for CPU heatsink? I have a Noctua fan on one side already (I believe blowing towards the CPU heatsink towards case blowing outwards). Wanted another fan on the other side of heatsink to help taking the hot air out. The Noctua matching fan is too expensive so looking for a cheaper alternate.

It's really good value, check this review out.
Close to Noctua but cheaper is this fans position in the market.

Yes as it's a static pressure fan it is suitable for use on CPU coolers.

This is exactly what this fan is built for. The P series of static fans is designed to force air through restrictive things like heatsinks. Having said that, if you need higher airflow I would wait for the non silent version with PWM (you can always reduce the RPM to make it just as silent as this). They are regularly this price also (I got one about a month ago, but needed it quickly so paid £1 more) if you keep an eye on it and don't mind about the colour, you should be able to pick one up relatively quickly.
Heat worth noting though that this is the fixed speed version not PWM.

Only fixed speed if you set the fan header to full speed. Otherwise it will regulate the fanspeed using the boards voltage control like every PC for 20 odd years.
Just be aware that these are the silent model, they are really quiet but that comes at the cost of airflow. i ended up returning and getting the normal p12 fans as the silent ones didn't provide enough airflow for my CPU radiator. If you just need something to move air around a media PC that is quiet then these are perfect, If you have a gaming PC i'd reccomend getting the non silent version.
They are not fixed, I use them on a Cooler Master radiator because the fans that came with it
were crap.

They are silent.

Thanks for the advice. I already have a Noctua blowing towards the CPU heatsink so I want to buy an additional fan for other side of heatsink blowing the same direction flow as the Noctua taking the hot air through the back of the case. My query is as the fan I require does not blow towards the heatsink but towards the back of the case to carry out the hot air, should I still be getting a P12 or a normal fan will doas its not blowing onto anything restrictive?

Sorry if my description is not well, little simple daigram to express what I mean.

Diagram:
Noct fan ---> CPU heatsink ----> add new fan ----> blows back of case and out through rear fan

As I am not blowing onto restrictive area, does it matter if I use standard type fans over these specialised P12 designs or fan will work as fans?

Thanks

This is a good question and I have to admit it's not immediately obvious to me. However, what I can say is that these fans are designed to maintain a high pressure difference compared to normal fans, so whether the restriction is on the intake side or exhaust side, they probably are better than if the fan is not designed to maintain such a large pressure difference. I can't say for sure unfortunately, but these are good quality quiet fans and at this price, I don't think you are over paying compared to a "normal" fan of similar quality, so I don't think you can lose by getting this. Hope this helps

I am using 9 of these in my case (Lian Li Dynamic O11), 3 on the side, 3 on the bottom and 3 on a 360 rad and couldn't be happier..seem to work just fine as case fans, and they are outstanding value for money and super silent..bearing in mind 9 fans I can barely hear them.
edit: I'm telling you a lie - I have the P12 not the P12 silent (the normal P12 is silent enough!)

What's db do you get with them 9 fans and at what fan speed? I have the same case but different fans currently. Currently get about 38db /40db at round 1100 on the case speed fans and 1500 on the rad.
