    Excellent video

  2. Thomas Jefferson on October 5, 2021 at 8:06 am

    Was this all just an AD?

  3. Melodias on October 5, 2021 at 8:09 am

    You make no mention of bearing types and there pro’s and cons this guide is essentially useless. i have Hydraulic fans that have 40.000 hours rating between failures and i have 4 of them in sideways position that 2 of already started to fail and make noise until i popped blade and lubricated them again.

  4. Jason Luong on October 5, 2021 at 8:10 am

    so Noctua fans didn’t make the cut this time.

  5. Vlad Snape on October 5, 2021 at 8:11 am

    It would have been good if you had mentioned typical CFM figures for popular cases, so that we copuld have an idea of actual CFMs. Right now, I have no idea if we are talking about 50% lower CFM or 5% lower, for typical fan and case combinations.

  6. c0c0nutbeans on October 5, 2021 at 8:11 am

    great vid

  7. bryan diel on October 5, 2021 at 8:12 am

    Be Quiet and Scythe Kama PWM fans beat out Noctua in a noise and efficiency test. Sorry Noctua, you are pricey and loud!!

  8. Ben Müller on October 5, 2021 at 8:14 am

    nowadays a lot of mobos have pwm control for 3 pin connectors. So forget about pwm as long as your mobo supports that

  9. Cotton Tail on October 5, 2021 at 8:15 am

    My PC: no Fans but have 120fps
    My Brother’s PC: With ARGB Fans and Liquid Cooling but can only reach 90fps

    hey starlord

  11. Nebula on October 5, 2021 at 8:19 am

    I have a question my motherboard asus prime b450M-A has cha_fan1 can I connect a case fan directly to cha_fan1 or do I have to use some 3rd party solution please reply with an answer I have been researching for a while and it is so confusing.

  12. Olgierd T. on October 5, 2021 at 8:19 am

    BeQuiet! fans suck for air pressure, dont ever buy them for intake fans especially if u use dust filters. I had BeQuiet! fans as intake with filter on my case as 2x 140mm on bottom and even after a year there was only some dust on the filter. I switched to Noctua NF-14 Chroma fans and they gathered far more dust on the filter in 2 weeks than BeQuiets! in a year. Also it’s very inaccurate that the industrial Noctua series is insane loud, I have them mounted 3x 140mm on my Kraken X73 and they are inaudible because u can fully control their speeds via CAM and still they provide better pressure even at those low speeds/noise compared to BeQuiett! fans I had.

  13. Brovid-19 on October 5, 2021 at 8:19 am

    240blubalubaluba fans

  14. Ahmed Farhan on October 5, 2021 at 8:20 am

    Do you advertise for Be quite in every single video you make?

  15. Blue-Squirrel-12 on October 5, 2021 at 8:23 am

    i got 7 be quiet silent wings 3

  16. Mad Knight Gaming on October 5, 2021 at 8:25 am

    idk, one of the fans on my dark rock pro 3 died with only like 2 years of 24/7 use

  17. Quirny on October 5, 2021 at 8:28 am

    whats better 140mm 1500rpm or 120mm 1800rpm???

  18. Kunal Dhenwal on October 5, 2021 at 8:31 am

    I think i saw you in Jurassic park

  19. Video Nomad on October 5, 2021 at 8:32 am

    Was here

  20. Nara Jung on October 5, 2021 at 8:33 am

    these comments are great

  21. King Khabra on October 5, 2021 at 8:33 am

    But how do you know what size to use?

  22. Korben DaIlas on October 5, 2021 at 8:33 am

    Noctua is Apple of fan world: very expensive compared to the others for almost no gain except maybe the beatiful look.

  23. Czar Vincent Rojoca on October 5, 2021 at 8:34 am

    very informative thanks

  24. Ichorof on October 5, 2021 at 8:35 am

    So basically you always want static pressure fans because the case always has some blockage ? Never air pressure fans for moving the air thru the case ?

  25. Roman Matveev on October 5, 2021 at 8:36 am

    Can not escape the feeling that your accent is a kind of Russian. What is your origin?

  26. N O on October 5, 2021 at 8:36 am

    Why do you think peloton dumped…?

  27. Chef Cabbage on October 5, 2021 at 8:37 am

    Is it just me or does this guy look like Chris Pratt.

  28. Xandis 37 on October 5, 2021 at 8:39 am

    Personally a be quiet fanboy. Got a silent loop 360 all be quiet case fans and a dark base 700.

  29. classy on October 5, 2021 at 8:41 am

    but you know, the RGB will add some fps..

  30. Scorpion7substance on October 5, 2021 at 8:41 am

    Please do a video on exploding PC fans………..

  31. Shíshǒu INTP-A on October 5, 2021 at 8:46 am

    this was just a beQuiet Ad…

  32. James M on October 5, 2021 at 8:47 am

    Case fans I usually get no more than a thousand RPM as for the CPU cooler I get a 3000 RPM fan.

  33. Ande Yashwanth on October 5, 2021 at 8:48 am

    so this is another bequiet ad.

  34. Hawk of the Reborn on October 5, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Am I high or does this guy look like Chris Pratt?

  35. Sp3z on October 5, 2021 at 8:50 am

    I went for some Arctic fans for my build. Based on my research they are equivalent to Noctuas in terms of performance, look better and cost a fraction of the price. Specifically 2xP14 for the front and 1xF12 for the rear exhaust. Based on my testing, all of these only become audible in case (Fractal Nano S) at 55% and at full load testing I saw virtually no change in CPU and GPU temps between 50% and 100%, so airflow is definitely adequate at this level as well. When working with fans, be sure to spend time to optimise your fan curves as this will give the most gains on noise performance. Also, never links case fans to the CPU temp sensor, but rather to a sensor closest to your GPU.

  36. LOLHICRONO on October 5, 2021 at 8:51 am

    20dba is not silent to me but we’re all different i guess

  37. richard343s on October 5, 2021 at 8:51 am

    Are the Arctic P14 fans a good choice if I’m on a budget?

  38. PocketDrummer on October 5, 2021 at 8:52 am

    PLEASE DO AN RGB FAN SHOOTOUT! The ratings mean nothing, so someone needs to buy a bunch of these fans, make a test, and then lets us all know which is has the best noise/performance ratio.

  39. Van on October 5, 2021 at 8:53 am

    You look eerily like Chris Pratt and this is the third time I’m watching this video cause I can’t concentrate

  40. JayzBeerz on October 5, 2021 at 8:54 am

    those silent wings 3 have a high frequency pitch and causing hearing loss. google it people and read for yourself.

  41. Real HIFI Help on October 5, 2021 at 8:55 am

    More videos should explain that cheap fans will most likely make more noise at the same DB level than most the expensive fans. Because, not only is there a DB level of noise, there is also a type of noise that is more annoying with the cheaper fans. Most cheap fans have a turbine noise where the expensive ones have more of a hum type of sound. Hum relaxes you, turbine noise gets a bit on your nerves.

    I wish I knew this before buying my latest be quiet pure wings 2 budget fans. There is nothing be quit about them, unless I run them at 1/3 of the rated RPM, which makes them useless.

    A good fan will many times run 2 or 3 times the RPM with amount the same amount of noise as a bad fan. I can realisticly run a Noctua at 1500-2000 rpm without it bothering me. Whereas a normal crap fan running 1000 rpm wil be slightly more annoying. (there are few exceptions to the rule)

  42. Thisismyalt on October 5, 2021 at 8:56 am

    my cpu fan goes up to 4500, gets louder then my voice, and can still let my cpu overheat within 5 minutes. lol

  43. Andy Walston on October 5, 2021 at 8:57 am

    After watching this video, I’m a big fan of this channel.

  44. Genius Pigby on October 5, 2021 at 8:57 am

    I’ve asrock b365m pro4 motherboard and antec nx200 as the casing. Can someone suggest which fans should i get?

  45. Louie Friesen on October 5, 2021 at 8:58 am

    The dislikes are from people who use high airflow fans for their rads and high static pressure fans for case exhaust

  46. Danial T. on October 5, 2021 at 8:59 am

    What should I take for i5-10600 CPU fan? Does the stock fan enough for keeping the Max turbo boost 4.8 GHz for at least half an hour or I should take a tower cooler?

  47. Vigi1antVort3x on October 5, 2021 at 8:59 am

    I can now tell my friends Starlord helped me choose diarrhea fans for my PC.

  48. Austy Asher on October 5, 2021 at 9:00 am

    Why is all the fan and cooler vids sponsored by ‘Be quiet’

  49. flame_of_the_west on October 5, 2021 at 9:01 am

    Well, for a rear exhaust do i need an airflow fan or a static pressure fan ?
