Pretty much confirms that fan stats are waste of space, where do they find the hats that companys pull their figures from ??? Buying fans has always been a crapshoot. The old standby Thermaltake A1926 for me is sorely missing. Always knew the 31dBA rating at 2000rpm was crap but would like to know if they actually put out the rated 78cfm and how much they drop when rpm lowered. I do wonder bout the static pressure build up and how it effects your test method tho. So many things effect that, would still be difficult to evaluate I guess. Filters, and spacers come to mind. And like some others posted, would have been nice to see Enermax Apolish included. Yes, I admit the bling has caught my eye, lol. But also remember how quite the fan was in my Liberty PSU. Defunk now but that was modding mishap, not Enermax fault. Thanks for the article, look forward to next. Now if companys would just get on the bandwagon and get out more 140mm's and get honest with their specs. Dreaming huh !!
