    Enermax Manual Adjust Fans
    Author: Mike Kitchenman
    Date Posted: December 26th, 2001
    SLRating: 8.5/10

    Installation

    The installation of a case fan isn't exactly difficult. 4 screw holes and 4 screws are about all that there is to it. However, there are usually other things involved here, such as fan grilles and fan filters. Well, as I mentioned earlier, the fan grilles are already included, so that's taken care of, and as for the filter, while they don't have any included with the fan, I don't have any in my case either, so its not a huge thing (in my book anyways.)

    Install: 3/3

    Performance

    This is the hard part of this was testing the fans themselves. I have no equipment to test decibel ratings of fans like these, I've shopped for them, but I don't have the 200$ for a meter that will measure this. The same goes for a CFM rating here, there is equipment I could use for it, but I can't afford it.

    I do, however, have a LOT more fans in my possession than anyone should have. This means I can compare fans head to head for noise and airflow and the like. Here's the candidates:

    120mm

    Panaflo H1A (from CaseETC.com)
    Panaflo L1A (from CaseETC.com)
    Enermax MA 120 (from So-TrickComputers.com)

    92mm

    Panaflo L1A (from CaseETC.com)
    Enermax MA 92 (from So-TrickComputers.com)

    80mm

    Thermaltake 8025A (from So-TrickComputers.com)
    Delta 80x80x38mm (from 3DCool.com)
    Enermax MA 80 (from So-TrickComputers.com)
