    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
    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they're NOT out to get you 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)
