The WBK-38, owes its success to a fan that moves a lot of air. That is also it's undoing as in order to get good airflow, in a 60mm footprint, you get noise to go along with it. If I'm not mistaken, the WBK HS can be easily adapted to accept an 80mm fan. With 80mm fans, your options go up considerably for effective, but not obnoxious sounding airflow. Look at some of the 80mm fans at the different resellers. Compare air delivery versus noise level. You should be able to find a good compromise. That, having been said, it will be hard to top the 60mm Delta 38 for performance, even in an 80mm footprint, except for the 80mm Delta Focused Flow fan. That is one effective fan, but again it is loud. Fortunately it moans instead of whining like the 60mm. You can get used to it, especially with the tower down on the floor.

do the users moan and whine or are you talking about the fans? ;-)
