    Good Morning Sunshine!

    Fastest water-cooled typewriter build on planet Earth (maybe cuz it's the only one ), and soon to be faster - I need more speed!

    Notice the 1.0mm air gap between the Noctua 140mm Industrial fans and the Phobya 10mm thick rad gasket? It's caused by the thickness of the Noctua noise absorption corner pads.

    So Noctua just released their very own fan/rad gaskets in brown and black 120mm and 140mm. The deal is (3) 140mm gaskets for $9USD from Amazon. Only need (2) in black to close that air gap permanently, ordered - be here tomorrow.

    Plan on cutting away the area outlined in red (3rd image below) since I'm using a 280mm radiator. Too bad Noctua didn't release 240mm 280mm 420mm rad gaskets so you don't have to cut out the center, but oh well this will work just fine. Plan on keeping the Phobya 10mm rad gasket in place, that very thick gasket absorbs the majority of the rotational noise energy from the fans so they run way up at 960rpms inaudible.

    The thick ones, the Alphacool Phobya 10mm gaskets aren't going anywhere. lol They're the BEST rad gaskets I've ever used, but since they are so darn thick, you cannot use the 28mm screws that arrive with the Hardware Labs radiators - I had to move to 40mm screws a pack of 10 and a pack of 10 35mm were about $8USD shipped from Monsterbolt.com, didn't know which length would work at time of ordering.

    25mm Noctua fan + 10mm Phobya gasket + 3mm Sorbothane washer + 2mm (2)Noctua corner pads = 40mm length screws

    The plan is to use the Noctua rad gaskets "on top" of the Phobya - double rad gaskets, lol. The Noctuas arrive tomorrow. Also got a text from FedEx, the blank HHKB keyboard will also be here tomorrow, have to sign for it.

    Calling these extremely thin 1.0mm silicon strips "Anti-Vibration Gaskets" - is a stretch of the imagination and a good bit of comedy.

    There's not enough quantity of material present to absorb even nominal amounts of rotational noise energy generated from a 140mm 2000rpm fan. They're going to work as well as the Noctua corner pads AND fill-in that 1.0mm gap created by them - and that's the only purpose these "silicon strips" can achieve.

    Would not use them alone flush mounted to a radiator ever, yet mounted "on top" of high performance radiator gaskets they should work well to fill in the air-gap created by the Noctua corner pads and aesthetically should look very nice.

    At least Noctua did flatten one side of the silicon strips allowing for a very neat and tidy exit for the PWM and PWR cables - nice attention to detail Noctua.

    told ya...
    somehow the brown ones were more... solid let's say, but not so far from the black ones
    I think the side "wires" are for esthetics only, not supposed to dampen any vibration or so
    basically, I think these "gaskets" are just the regular triangular vibration pads joined together, and pay few times more =))

    You are right kvarq, that's all they are - the triangular Noctua corner pads joined together.

    More of an aesthetic improvement than acoustic or increased airflow through the rad. But at least I can remove (8) of my black Noctua corner pads and add these closing up my air-gap, should look nicer than the gaping abyss below. lol

    Won't be getting to it today, here working trying to upgrade my Newegg Z790 Apex shipping and waiting to sign for the blank keyboard.
