    IFX-14 Navig's Review

    Hi everybody!


    Just thought I'd drop a link to my ongoing review of the IFX-14:

    And here it is.


    Stay tuned, should have my first numbers posted.

    ~221CFM each, so does that smaller fan in the middle actually (if it's the highest speed one, can't tell from the pic).

    Can't wait Navig....but be sure to post up some results here too

    Delta 120x76.

    Middle one (hah the "small one") is a 1212VHE.



    Here are the results with the 14cm YL. I still can't get over how quiet the system is with these 14cm YLs. I've got it folding, and I actually check it every now and then to see if its running.


    Here is a table of the Coretemp loads vs the fan configuration:




    Blue rectangles represent one of the heatsink towers (2 main towers and the backside cooler) and black bars represent the fan location.

    Temps are the average of all logged temps by Coretemp 0.94 from minute 3 to minute 4 of Stress Prime small FTTs load on my e6600 9x400, 1.4275v.

    navig you have to put all that delta on each side and have another delta in the middle.

    Cool, I like how you show the different configs....interesting results too (the single fan config they have in the manual is the worst, lol).

    What does your board say for fan RPM on those YLs? I have one here and it's performing identically to the D14SL-12 in CFM, dB, and RPM (says D14SM-12)....I think you may have three of those (they're quiet, unlike the SM).

    EDIT: and I guess I got lucky....I started using positions 2 and 4 right off the bat.

    I think this image was the most extreme. I seriously wonder what are the temps with all those 3 on.

    Okay more summary tables!


    Here are the numbers from single 120mm fan testing. The fans were all tested in the middle position between the heatsink towers.





    They do more or less scale with more powerful fans. I think this is a consequence of the very high density of fins. Over all, I think its a good concept--it allows the end user to select his or her own noise-performance ratio.






    Here are the numbers from several multiple fan setups:






    And yes, the "Delta Extreme" is what ya'll asked for:


    Ran a second powersupply just to power all dem fans!


    Again, more fan power = more performance.


    My recommend for fan selection in order of priority:

    1) Multiple fan setup
    2) As loud as a fan as you can tolerate

    Sorry if I'm blind but how the did you hook up the 3 delta fans onto the IFX-14? Or is it not directly attach to the IFX-14?

    Double stick tape. Actually the fan boxes sit just fine on my RAM and the PWM cooler--the double stick tape holds it closely to the fins.

    I really don't care for Thermalrights insistance of using fan clips--they are pain to keep switching out all these fan configurations. When I settle on a particular fan configuration, I'll actually probably build or drill some hardmounts with aluminum brackets.

    Navig, do you think it is possible to run that solution in a 24/7 environment?

    If you don't have ears....just running one of those fans makes me want to scream, 2 and the VHE would make me be institutionalized.

    Good to see it scale like that though

    Nice work Navig

    24/7? If you mean the noise, frankly no! If you check back at the originaly thread, I'm running a uguru controlled Panaflo M1 + medium/low speed 120x25mm fan, and that's about the highest tolerance of noise I'll accept.

    If you mean as a proper way to secure a fan. Maybe. Good doublestick tape is wicked strong, as long as you don't keep moving it. Again, tho, once I figure what I like, I'll probably try the fan clips or devise a hard mount like I did for my Ultra 120x.

    Yes as a proper way to secure the fan. Reason being, if I get it my way, noise wouldn't matter and I can hopefully use your idea and have it cooling my Xeon 3060 24/7.

    nice results, waiting for the compare to ultra 120ex

    if i will buy this heatsink i will use 2 YL on each side @12v and a delta 120x38 in the middle @ 7v

    Here are the numbers from the backside cooler:





    Testing was done with a single Panaflo M1 in the middle, and with or without a generic $2 compusa-closing 80x25: 26 cfm, 2500 rpms, 28.5 dB.


    The biggest separation in temps (0.9c) is barely in the range of what I would consider measurable with my methods (+/- 0.5c just my sense). I think this was a little disappointing because I can feel the heatpipes getting a little warm. But similar to what other reviews have found.
