12 blade vs. 5 blade EDF

What are the advantages of going with a 12 blade vs a stock 5 blade

Is it just the sound? It seems that you need more battery and a higher rated esc to get the same power as a stock 5 blade.

Thanks for your help.

10-12 blade fans draw more Amps than 5 blades, hence the need for higher ESC's. IMHO, set-up correctly, the higher blade count fans sound much better, where the lower blade fans, are more efficient. I know from experience, that higher blade fans will EAT older Lipo's for Lunch...
