Sounds like a C-130 airplane reving up for take off. It almost made me go postal. The whine was almost as bad as my ex-wife... hehehe! Life is so much better now that I replaced it with a higher flow and much quieter 80mm fan instead.

i would have to say that the exwife whine i just a smidge worse than the black label delta .... of course that may vary from one ex to the next ;D

well loud is relative. If you compare it to yelling over an F-15 would be apt.

They are the most annoying thing ever put in a PC case. But wait... I've read that there's a new 8000 rpm Delta that pushes 51 cfm. Hang on, the math doesn't work. I think someone's pulling my chain.

The only way to revel in the sonic assault that is the Delta 38 is to buy and install one. Ah, the glory! And then you will yourself into deafness. This is a exersise in Zen discipline worthy of a Master. After about five months, your Zen training will fail you. The Delta From Hell-a will begin to waver in its rpm. Tuning the little screaming bastid out becomes impossible. As soon as you manfully accomplish this Herculean task, the fan's pitch will change. Voila, you're in heaven again.

Don't take my word for it! Travel and cooking shows on tv are agreeable, but there's nothing like being there.

Damn! It seems like everyone getting a delta is quickly taking them out due to the noise! hahahaha!

I should get one just to see what the wife says! She thinks my two 60mm 27cfm each is loud! Imagine what she would do if I got two of those baby's for my slot 1 Alpha!

No wait then I would be talking along with you guys about the ex-wife thing!
(I hope I didnt offend anyone, just having a little fun)

I didn't really believe that the black label could be very loud, I mean come on... its only a 60 mm fan.

But with my new FOP-38 came one of these fans and to my amazement his little fan puts 120mm sunons to shame! What an annoying noise. Needless to say it got Nix'd after 30 seconds for a YS tech that I cannot hear.

I have to Deltas within 3 feet of me and they don't bother me at all. You get used to it. Beyond that I have 2 92mm, and 8 80mm between my three computers.
