Ok~ I got TIRED of having a delta 120mm 80cfm (at 7v fan (35-40cfm)) on my rad and replaced it with a panaflo at 7v (50 cfm about) and my temps WENT UP from 42c folding (P4) to 48c folding! WTF!!!!!

Less air flow bro = a lill higher temps. Like the rad on your car, slow the air going through and the temps go up.

My sys has 2 55cfm low noise 120's and they work nice.And on 12v also.

If you can, put another 55 cfm 120 on the rad.
