Thermaltake iFlash 12 120mm Fan

Performance

Performance

For this part of the review i'm going to compare the iFlash fan against the stock case fan included with my Silverstone TJ05 case. Unfortunatly i don't have any specs for the stock fan, but this should give you a good idea of what temperature differences you will see by replacing your stock case fans.

Temperature readings were taken after 1hr of prime95 with room temperature maintained at 25oc.

Case Temperature

The high cfm rating of these fans clearly helps them beat out my Silverstone fans which i'd say push in the region of 30cfm.


Noise

Without the neccesary equipment it is very hard to put manufacturers noise claims to the test. However, these fans are certainly quiet, and the only noise to be heard is air turbulance which is reassuring, as earlier on in this review i was worried about the LED's on the fan blades causing vibration. Personally i would say that these fans are closer to 25db when running at 12v, but there are certainly no mechanical or grinding noises like on my previous review of the AC Ryan fans.

After my recent review of the AC Ryan Blackfire range which scored a miserable 0, i thought it was time to look for an alternative. Enter the Thermaltake Iflash 12.

They are a nice looking fan mate, except for the black shroud you mentioned in the review, I think it detracts from the look. On page 4 (bottom left pic) it looks fairly bright where you tested these in your rig, did you check the fans in a more dimly lit area? Perhaps they may be ok and better suited in a dark LAN party. Great and professional review anyway mate...awesome
