Re: Random Chit Chat
Oh, it's not here lulz. I think it ships out tomorrow.
I had to order new rad fans today. My Scythe3K's are so inefficient that they end up putting out more heat than they move. So my left MOSFET bank is always running at 40C :| Plus I needed a new rear case fan. The Delta is nice, but it's such high amperage input that trying to control it with undervolting or PWM just doesn't work. It clicks, it pings, it essentially damages the motor. So I leave it off all the time and put it on a switch on my controller for when I'm benching. I bought 2 Delta AFB1212HHE's (120x38 120CFM @ 2900RPM, 44dBa .46A, .75A MAX - 4.0v-13.2v, 12v rated with the ability to create 9.0 mm H²O of "static" pressure) and 1 Koolance 120x38 (116CFM @ 2600RPM, 39dBa, .75A MAX. no pressure details needed)
Both are Dual Ball Bearing fans. Cabbs and I spoke and we both agreed that since the Scythe 3k's are sleeve bearing fans, the lubricant has settled out at the base of the motor and is not properly lubricating the entire assembly therefore causing excessive inefficiency and heat is the unwanted side-effect there. Yes, I could have added more lubricant to the fans, or I could just spend 50 dollars and buy the new fans I needed anyways.
