Yate Loon D12SL-12 120mm Case Fan Review
You can see from the included graph that the Noctua NF-P12 fan provides considerably more static pressure than the Yate Loon D12SL-12. Please bear in mind that my ghetto testing equipment only provides an indication of static pressure, and according to the results below the D12SL-12 provided static pressure between 0 - 0.09 cmH2O and the NF-P12 - 0.199 cmH2O.
You can see from the free air flow chart that the NF-P12 facilitates slightly more airflow than the Yate Loon D12SL-12, even though the NF-P12 has a slighly lower rotational speed than the D12SL-12.
The D12SL-12 doesn't cope as well with the radiator testing, mainly due to its inability to generate more static pressure. However I was surprised at the results that it managed to muster regardless.
Installing the D12SL-12 and NF-P12 120mm fans on the radiator for our cooling tests yielded some slightly predictable, but interesting results. The NF-P12 certainly has the goods and it performs well whilst being almost totally quiet. The Yate Loon D12SL-12 on the other hand is slightly noisier than the the Noctua @12v, but at 7v they sound pretty much on par.
