I run dual spal H.O. 11" on my C6 and it is marginally enough.
1. Will one large brushless outperform 2 smaller fans?
2. Can brushless fans turn higher RPM than brushed and is there benifit to this?
These fans are not extreme. The BMW 1000-850w brushless fans are as good as it gets and flow more air then any fan in the automotive market.. but you have to use a aftermarket pwm driver set at 100hz & GM temp sensor. Or if you want bad ass brushed power the OEM Volvo 850 fan #9497929 flows around 4300 real cfm, it has the same 2sp motor as the legndary Lincoln MKIII just different blade the volvo is 16" and the mkiii is around 18". These spal fans are a joke. The Volvo lends itself to custom setups, its flange mounted and is 2spd using the volvo relay. We cool a 970hp GN with the volvo fan.
Jesus christ, turn your fuckin mic down.
these are for ECM controlled vehicals!
where can i buy your brushless fan?
SPAL doesn't sell the brushless fans direct. You have to buy them from their distributors. If you call us, we can recommend you to a distributor that sells brushless fans. www.wizardcooling.com is a good one.
9 months after 2018 SEMA and the "new" variable fans do not show up on their website!
Thank you for sharing this good explanation I need to bay one how do I request it (all the set)
i can't find those on the SPAL website or any other, where can you buy?
One more thing please.... I am also interested in the 17" 30107035 but again, no where to purchase this fan at a reasonable cost and with out a shroud. I do not need a shroud as we build our own here. Can you again, give me some solid specs on the 30107035 as well as the 16" 30107072 ... I would not be interested in anything that did not have your 500 watt motor. ( go big or go home, right!?).
I build custom aluminum radiators and have a number of questions on the brushless fans.... How does you 500w series 16" fan at maximum out put compare to a 17" 265w brushed fan that pulls 23.5amp at maximum output? I have always been a fan of Derale's product, simply because the "amp draw" and 265w motor signals to me that this fan can do some work. Could you give me a "feel" for the difference in these 2 products? I realize that cfm ratings are not a good spec to go by because of real world variables.
I have also used the old Vintage Air "Monster Fans" which are essentially the Lincoln Mk fans in an aftermarket bracket. Although Vintage Air has discontinued these fans, I have managed to figure out the VDO part number for the motors and have been able to duplicate this product with used fan blades and new VDO motors. These fans as we all know pull about the most air of anything that is easy to come up with for a hot rod application but they are limited in application because of space limitations on many street rod/hot rod applications versus the size of the VDO motors. Can you be more specific as to how your 16" brushless unit will stand up beside these fans?
I would like to know where these brushless fans can be purchased at a jobber type pricing rather than retail, as I have to try and put together an affordable package with the radiators I build. Most of the stuff I do is for upper end applications where there are not "off the shelf" radiators available, i.e. Blow BBC street rods that want to do cruising in the summer with the ac on, High horsepower street stuff, 1000hp+ turbo'd stuff, 600 cui stuff, etc...
I need a reply asap please as I am in the middle of a project right now that could possibly use one of these 500w brushless fans in 16".
Do you have any solid specs on your 16" 500w fan at max output with realistic voltage of 12-13v. Amp draw at max output, any kind of "advertised" cfm versus brushed 265w fan, etc.... Give me some real selling points I can use and I would be willing to switch to your brushless fans.

I wonder if they have a brushless fan comparable to the good old Lincoln Mk III fan? At 4500 cfm the 9” Ford of the fan world. It would be nice to have a fan with more options and the efficiency of three phase.
Gamers: everyone wears headphones when playing games.
Also gamers: fan noise matters!
Seriously, just get the cheapest and coolest one. Buying a $30 fan is simply dumb unless you have too much cash to waste. In this case, just stick with the stock ones and manually set the fan curve in bios to your liking.
I like my be quiet fans. This is a great video. Noctua fans are slightly quieter than my fans, but not worth changing.
This video is incredibly well made. This is the first video I have seen on this channel, and I an going to subscribe.
Football makes the best Fans
Your editing is great! small little details when it comes to the graph numbers showing up one after another is excellent!
I REALLY want the Noctua's in my system, but they're just so damn UGLY! esp for see through side panels. COME ON NOCTUA! AT LEAST GIVE US BLACK FANS!!! I've been waiting for YEARS
Yeah but why brown
I have a RBG fan and to be honest I don't even use the lighting option. It still makes a noise even if it is on or off.
Arctic cooling p14
Lol, Corsair fans are more expensive than Noctua yet makes more annoying noise. Also, I LOVE THE _UGLY_ color of Noctua. It reminds me of high quality mango Jerky.
L I N U S
i cant hear them over my own fans
Am i the only person who kinda likes fan noise?
alphehofnnsmh makes best fans. Name is too complicated to remember but sth like that
Why cant we have the best of everything ? Lowest temperature, lowest noise decibels and RGB customizability
Where my Phanteks at
noctua are amazing....but so incredibly gross looking.... would it kill them to blackout/whiteout or add some rgb even?
Currently, struggling to put an ITX (h210 so.. sudo itx?) build together and trying to decide between a 280aio or a 240 aio and This may have just cemented the 240mm. Everyone totes "super quiet fans!" but never says their noise when they're throwing air into a rad or paird up. So thank you for actually doing a test I was looking for =D
Can anyone suggest me the highest CFM for 120 fan
Just Buy 2 Delta PFC1212DE
its great set up to make your pc hovering
Wow... so uh... you guys completely wiped out the Amazon inventory of these... I'm glad I got 2 sets but wish I got more now. oops
@9:13 I give u my crown as the king of sound fx. 😂
likely around 33 cfm @ 1300 rpm
thank you i know what fans to get now
The only think I will remember from the video is the hairstyle from the dude in the sponsor video
I will stick with my Noctua fans. You get what you pay for.
Anyone know if there is 140mm versions of these?
They now sell PWM RGB fans on amazon as well, cost about 10 bucks more
Two fans doa when I got some they were $45 and the led ports were empty
These fans are loud!
The U.K. link seems to be a different fan.
That white hair guy looks familiar, is this ithe microcenter in columbus?
after my cousin showed up to my house asking for help with a build wielding a Canadian version of the same fans, i immediately ordered 3 more kits. i swapped out my cooler master case fans for these as they look nicer and push more air. plus the rear case fan wasn't RGB. and now i got 2 left over and 3 cooler master extras for if they ever bum out. my brother also bought 2 packs for a build hes currently putting together. cant go wring for 20 bucks. only reason i see not to use them is if you want all you RGB control through one software program.
These are sold in Mexico as the Gamefactor fkg400, there are some slight variants to them tho, the controler only has 6 slots for fans, but on the flipside, they have motherboard connectivity. They still come with the remote control and 2 led strips without any difuser, I just taped some micropore on them and called it a day, the strips look really good with the make shift difuser lol.
The major downside is that they are molex, so there is that. Also Im 4 months in and they are really quiet
And 1 year later....$45 a set.
“You should visit this store that sponsored us. Now, onto these fans we bought on Amazon.”
is $45 now
I have had them for 2 years , mine didn't have the rgb header
I bought gtx1650 super for 245 usd but I also bought these for 27
There are a bunch of these around. Clearly all made by the same OEM. But yeah AsiaHorse, UpHere, Aigo,Vetroo,Anidees. Cooler Master, Themltake, Corsiar. All clearly use this same OEM to make the fans they sell on the budget to mid end. And they are way cheaper. I've been running UpHere fans for years. They also have sleeved cable kits and several other super good value for money cosmetics.

Interesting video, thank you for posting.
It would have been nice to see sound and air at specific speeds, so 500 rpm =, 750 rpm=. But I understand there's complexity to set that up.
This video answered what I needed to know though so great work! 👍
Still a useless review guys. Need noise normalised results. The only metric that matters.
Nice video really appreciate for this awesome informational video. Here is a video also where some extra information here-https://youtu.be/xf0saKxCktQ
You should do this with noise normalization. What I see is this: the higher the rpm the higher the noise/airflow.
why not equalize the airflow on all fans then measure the noise, and possibly measure the noise from the side instead of the intake where wind will be rushing past the mic. and that graph at the end, jesus.. use bar graphs...
omg, when i thionk quiet fan i think 36bd not 41 lol wow. my machine at static is 36 dba and my last build was even quieter at 36 bda at normal usage.
Would've liked to see all the fans compared at 1000rpm and 1500rpm. I understand you ran them all at maximum for testing but no one runs their fans at 100%
honestly, if noctua would make a rgb fan grill, a ton of peoples would buy it instead of most of the rgb fans on the market
Very helpful video u should use a tabulat ranking showing which one is lowest noise, and price and airflow. The line graph is confusing. I got to know other options for silent fans other than Noctua which everyone recommended but I see others are as good and way cheaper. Thanks
noctua is a premium fan XD
you should now test static pressure. block of the end and measure the pressure.
They sell these fans online using the information of cubic feet per second (cfm), not meters per second (mps).
Tried most of them and jy absolite favorites are the sickleflow !! There's a chinese brand called elseye and their fans are nothing short kf amazing (cf120)
So what are the quietest ones?
Why wouldn't you do bequiets silent wings 3 since you are doing noctuas top of the line??
So, maybe calculate air flow/noise ratio to see the best benefit/cost ratio for each? (higher number is better, done at max rpm)
Corsair: 6 m/s / 70db= 0.0857 m/s/db (highest, best)
Thermaltake: 0.0677 m/s/db
BeQuiet: 0.0600 m/s/db (worst)
CoolerMaster: 0.0742 m/s/db (third best)
Noctua: 0.0772 m/s/db (second best)
Noctua has such an ugly beige color....At least it goes nicely with my ugly beige HD 598
