So you’re putting together your all out custom build. You’ve got the best processor, motherboard, memory, GPU, and case you can buy. Now is the time you’re going to have to start thinking about fans and cooling. Whether it be air or water, you will need fans. This is often forgotten till the end, and this item is crucial to bringing all those bits together and helping them to perform to their fullest. While there are many options when it comes to choosing fans, it is very important to be selective in order to get the right fan for your configuration as well as a good quality fan. Today we are going to be taking a look at a broad selection of 9 fans from one of the most lauded fan manufacturers, Noctua.
Enermax has released 5 new fan models that use their new patented APS (Adjustable Peak Speed) Control technology. What this new technology does is it allows you to set the peak speed of the fans yourself so they will never go over a specific RPM speed. Then the speed will be regulated by a PWM or an integrated thermal sensor. The 5 new fan models include Cluster Advance, Everest Advance, Magma Advance, T.B. Vegas Quad and T.B. Vegas.
Coming to us from the frozen north of Scandinavia is a product from Fractal Design. The Adjust 108 is a 6 channel fan controller from this award winning Swedish company.

Today we are looking at a pair of 140mm fans, the Silent Wings 2 from a company that seems to be too good at their name: be quiet!. Yes that is be quiet, with an exclamation point, and if you are like me this is probably the first time you have ever heard of them. Looking at their website, they certainly have a fairly full product line. The problem seems to be that none of it is for sale outside of Germany. With claims of near silent operation, it’s time to find out if they can actually live up to their namesake.

A European powerhouse the silent storm known as be quiet! is finally making its ways to the shores of the United States. Known for quality products with a certain silent flare the be quiet! cooling and power options are nothing to scoff at. Intricate designs and meaningful functionality separate be quiet! from many of the other competitors in the EU but can they make a dent in a market already saturated with quality cooling/power companies? Players like Corsair and Enermax better watch because something quiet might be sneaking up on them.
