Power it up.. does it sound like a hair dryer? Then you got the 38.

yes, it sounds like a hair dryer all right!
so the only difference is the fan and nothing else? not the size and all?

yup.....the heatsinks are identical, its just the 6800 rpm delta fan that makes it a fop38.

i use one on mine....they really should supply some earplugs with it :)

I wouldn't just go off the sound, when In first heard the ys-tech fan on the 32 I thought that was loud like a quiet hair dryer but after using a delta for a bit, the ys-tech sounded almost silent, what rpm does the bios report it as?
