PA120.3 vs. BIX3 at 150CFM
 
i cant seem to find any comparisons or the BIX3 and PA120.3 at high CFM (like 120CFM+)

i use noise cancelling headphones so i really couldnt care less how much noise a fan makes so i was gonna get 3 of these and wanted to know wat the difference in performance would be between the 2

My guess would be that the BIX will preform better because it was designed fo high cfm 100+ As opposed to the PA wich is the low cfm model

But ive never used a PA so I don't really know

Neighbors might have a problem with those fans at full speed, even if you dont. lol

Maybe it's just me, but using 100 watts just to power 3 fans is not the best use of one PSU!

those fans seem excessive, but I would guess that the PA would still lead (though the difference would be smaller then if say 3 70cfm fans were used). I also would guess that using 3 of those over 3 panaflow ultrahighspeed at 45dba and 120cfm would be less then 1 degree on the Pa and as such the dramatic increase in noise would not be worth it (even noise canceling headphones would have trouble with 3 of those deltas)
