  • Conclusion: The test machine consists of an AIUGA 1700+ (1.47Ghz) Athlon XP paired with a Soltek SL75DRV5 motherboard and 256MB of Samsung PC2700 ram. The case is a Tsunami Virgo with two case fans, one drawing air in from the bottom and a second exhausting air out of the back.

Zalman ZM-F1 "Silent" 80mm Case Fan

19 February 2003
  • Conclusion: So what, if anything can we take away from this? Well, if you're willing to sacrifice a relatively minimal increase in temperature then you can cancel case fans out of your computer's noise equation. At 20dB the Zalman fan in "silent" mode was effectively just that: noiseless.
  • Pros: Cheap, Cheap, Cheap!, Effectively silent in "silent" mode at 20dB, Only slight temperature increase in "silent" mode
  • Cons: In"normal" mode fan is louder than competitor but is still outperformed, No variable fan speed control, Switch from different modes requires hardware modification, Slight temp increases!
