120mm Fan Roundup: 1350 RPM and Higher Rotation Speeds
It would be great if a static pressure test could be added to the test suite. This is very important when using a fan in a Heatsink/Radiator application, whereas CFM is most important for Case fans.
Also it would be a great reference if you could include the previous test winner in the new roundup, thereby narrowing down all fans tested at the finale to one ultimate fan!
Honestly, FOR THE PRICE, the Koolance 120x25/120x38 2600rpm fans are some of the absolute best I've ever used! I do professional audio recording/editing/mixing, so I like to think that I'm rather good with sound, and the Koolance fans are very "pleasant"-sounding. They don't "grind", "squeal", "squeak", or anything else, even when undervolted as low as 3.8v; which is another one of their strong suits: they under-volt insanely well. I have run them from 3.8v on the low end up to 15.9v on the high end (a bit of an over-voltage; got to 3370rpm!), and they don't hesitate at all!
Sure, you can get some Sanyo Denkei fans that will perform better at the same noise level, but for the price of ONE San-Ace, you can get 3-5 of these Koolance fans!
The difference between the $22-35 fans and these $8 Koolance fans (at this speed/performance level) is so minimal when you have them on a radiator that there is NO SITUATION where you wouldn't be better off to spend the same amount of money to put the Koolance's in Push-Pull as you would any other fan in just push or just pull...
