Blowing out with a 30cfm or any fan with lower then 40db would it been silent. Will i expect good tempertures? I'm just comparing this to the slk800 i prefer quietness.. since this SVC fan is loud as a jetairplane.

I have a 40CFM on mine, which weighs in at about 35ish DB. The PAL is the best heatsink you can use when it comes to low CFM/noise fans. :) Temps in sig...

i used to have the 47 cfm delta on mine..and its very quiet..39db, great fan

See phil, 39db is quiet to you because you used to have a Black Label on your desk, and you have a Tornado on there now =P I think this guy is looking for something *ultra* quiet along our standards :rolleyes:

dude, you SO know that I'm too cool to read things all the way through. Damn, where'd that Adderall go....
Anyways, I'd still reccomend a nice quiet Panaflo if you're not looking to OC

Edit - rock! my second star! And it only took 20 months.
