Back so soon, Yes this is episode 3 of the fan showdown season 2. I told you I wouldnt Keep ya waiting and here I am. This one is great, today someone created a fan that works yet doesnt have anything resembling normal fan blades, OUT STANDING.

  • Please test this: I think the bladeless fan would move more air with only the outer shell and all internal shells deleted.

  • You really should take Trinity and put a ring the outside the the 3 blades...that should drive up the flow rate and drive down the noise also... Your losing flow and making excess noise by tip vortices.

  • What would happen if you took the bladeless fan and glued the same design and printed twice and glued them back to each other making a ventri effect. You may have to invert it from a sphere to a cone type shape to make a converging diverging or just play with the openings on each side..

  • compare these designs should be with the same size. Large one is always better than small one. Large one has better performance like low noise , large flow rate & low power.

  • Could you beat the bladeless with just a large heatsink with no fan? what's the largest air cooler that can be bought retail that doesnt use a fan (or could safely run with the fan removed)?

    craig855scraig855s13 dagar sedan
    • @Thomas farquhar I know a fan is more efficient than no fan, but im just wondering if (and not for my build, purely for experimential learning) a large heatsink and no fan. Can do better than a small cooler with a shit fan. The benefit being: No fan at all = ultimate noise test winner

      craig855scraig855s4 dagar sedan
    • A heatsink works with the cold air going over it and pushing the heat energy out, thus meaning a fan would still make it way more efficient

  • The fission I didn't think I would like the fission until I seen it running and it has a really cool like shimmering pattern. There was a time I was all about fan performance and had a bunch of Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000s (133 cfm fans) on my wet bench but it was such overkill they never spooled up unless I raised the baseline, so I put some RGB Corsair fans in it with the lights in the hub instead of the housing because it looks much better and more even lighting. My water loop can quite possibly keep the CPU cool without any fans on the rad given the volume of water, and radiator surface area. I think I'm going to test it actually. Anyway my point was I can sacrifice airflow (going to much lower performing fans) for appearances with 0 change to my temps so why not have some fun with it? =)

  • The “blade-less” fan isn’t free from “blades” they aren’t exposed in the traditional sense, but there are still blades and they are just enclosed. The vertical structure walls that run the length of the cone and have a pretty substantial width are in a sense directing the airflow down and to the layers of circular channels while exiting out the concaved slits. It’s just a different design.

  • I noticed in one of the videos you had an air speed meter could you not print a funnel to go from the fan to the meter this would give the exact flow of the fans.

  • The other video aside you should DEFINITELY try acetone smoothing the bladeless design for better performance. It's counterintuitive but what you've basically got there is a modified Tesla Turbine design. It's relying on what Tesla called "adhesion" to induce movement in the working fluid and adhesion works best with glossy smooth rotors.

  • As part of the smoke test what if you use a smoke ring shooter, so we can also see how the fans effect existing air currents?

  • Just stumbled across your vid. Always good to see new designs made. All good and well, video nice quality, decent sound, some humor, decent pace (apart of too long smoke sequences) but one massive thing missing if this is to be anyhow serious and to have any meaningful take off - you simply have to have a proper testing methodology. Sucking some smoke is good for cigar lovers but totally useless for measuring performance of cooling fans. Also, compared to mainstream fans (it is a pity you didn't have one as a bench mark, at least we would have had some meaningful comparison ) the temperatures you achieved are simply not worth the trouble, those deltas could be achieved with large heatsink and fanless open case :). I like your style hence some advice, of course you tell me to take a hike ;). I started playing with with PC cooling 20 years ago where we soldered potentiometers to graphic cards and mother boards and were hunting dumps for old fridges for multi stage freezer coolers lol. I was inot TEC tech and built the first passive TEC cooler system ever to work. I wish I had 3D printing back then :). Anyways, good luck and I subscribed to see how are you doing

  • The bladeless may have lost in total cooling power, but it was quiet. It that way it was the best of them. I wonder what would happen if you turned down the RPM on the other fan designs so that they were all 42dB so we could compare total cooling power at the same noise level.

  • I want to replace the blades in the extractor fan in my kitchen... the current fan is, well... WEAK! I go in the kitchen to vape and turn the fan on when doing so, but even blowing vape directly at the fan, it's not verry effective at drawing the vape out of the house, allowing a good 50% and sometimes more to simply float down the walls into the living room and subsequently has set of the smoke alrm on occasion. so I ask you/challenge you! -which fan design do you suppose would be the most effective at extracting my vape? and terrible cooking smoke of course :D
