Default 30x 120mm Fans Roundup - Tested on WC Radiator

Today we have a guest article from Martin who tested 30 different 120mm fans when mounted on a water-cooling radiator. He measured generated noise, cubic feet per minute of air moved with each fan, allowing for some impressive comparative result charts. If you arere looking for a 120mm fan upgrade, this article is a must read!

impressive testing, now even with power consumption but:

The chart is too hard to read, you need to make additional charts for groups of 10 fans. Of course, if someone could code it so you can select several fans and then the chart would be created that would be best. Don't let great test data go to waste because of the presentation.

it was a one time guest article
Martin's main focus was water cooling gear; this was his final big group test (until the bug bites again )

his site is at http://martin.skinneelabs.com/ where you can find plenty of water cooling reviews

will see what I can do, he send me the source file; don't expect a database just yet, but different presentation is doable I think; although X/Y scatter charts are still the best for this; problem is that the Legend is hard to read

They type of chart is not the problem, it is just that because there are so many similar looking graphs that its hard to tell which fan is which graph.

if they would be groups of 10, the problem would be smaller even if those are groups of similar performers.
