Hey BoredGunner,
 
I have a Lamptron FC5v2 fan controller (30 watts per channel) and 4 Delta FFB1212SH that have both 3 pin and 4 pin molex connectors. The 4 pin molex has both a red and black cable connected to it, while the 3 pin only has one blue wire. When I connect one Delta with the 3 pin only to the fan controller the fan doesnt run. When I connect the 3 pin to the fan controller and 4 pin to the PSU, it works and I can see the watts/RPM but I cannot reduce the speed when i gradually turn the dial down.
 
Am I doing something wrong? I'm not familiar with wiring but I have a feeling that 3 pin should have blue, red and black wiring going into for it to work with my fan controller.

I figured it out, I wasn't thinking properly. I will have to remove the 4 pin molex and add pins to the 3 pin, recrimp the black/red wires to the 3 pin and I should be good to go.

I’m going to get this
Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm x 25mm Fan - 5400 RPM (D1225C12BBAP-31)
and
Thermalright TY-140
Thank you for this topic but can I ask how often does this this topic get updated?
I don’t care to much about fancy lights as you can see I have chosen the very best fans

Hi in going to buy this Corsair Hydro H70 High-Performance CPU Water Cooler and I see it comes with 2 fans the size are Fan Dimensions: 120mm x 25mm and I no tested that Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm x 25mm Fan - 5400 RPM (D1225C12BBAP-31) is the same size so will the Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm x 25mm Fan - 5400 RPM (D1225C12BBAP-31) work as a replacement of the fans that come with it
I know I am mad

I doubt you will see much, in terms of dropping your temps further with a 5000rpm fan. I think 2000 is plenty for the H70 rad. 
 
It's not the most efficient design (the H50 or H70), and 5000+ rpm fans I would be willing to bet, offer maybe 1c difference over 2000rpm fans, at the expense of your computer sounding like a 24/7 space shuttle or something.

Great thread, I didn't know it was better to use 120x38 fans on a radiator.

I'd go for the Thermalright TY-140 but keep in mind it has 120mm mounting holes.  Otherwise I'd go for Yate Loon or Xigmatek 140mm fans.

None of them have good static pressure to be honest.  NoiseBlocker's highest RPM 140mm fan has a static pressure that is similar to that of a Thermalright TY-140, which has a much lower RPM so less noise.  You can always go for some Delta 140mm x 38mm fans if you're up for it.

Why is good static pressure necessary for case fans? 
 
And there's not very many companies with realistic "SP" numbers..

Oh, for whatever reason I was under the assumption you were asking about case fans.. 
 
The Aerocool Shark's are decent 140mm fans for rads. Quiet and rather efficient. 
 
 

 
 
 
 
You could always use an adapter too. A 120>140mm adapter.

Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
 The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

You are welcome Patches
Search around for the best price in the stores, if not, post a thread on the WTB section to see if someone could sell you the rad you are looking for, at a good price.

artrico,
it will be the first of next month before i can get it.i will check everywhere,but the price is not a major concern for me.it is the condition and performance of the parts.that is why i probably will buy new,i would hate to buy a rad and find out they used that colored dye stuff in thier system and i would have to spend days flushing it out.right now i am looking on crazypc,performance pc and frozen pc.if you know any other places to check let me know.im thinking swiftech on pumps and blocks.
