    Wired very nicely, clean and neat. I don't recognize your cpu cooler. What is it?

    Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo, it was a cheap $40 (about 30 US) one I received for Christmas, however it is a lot better than the stock cooler :P my 2600k peaks at around 50 degrees load.

    Installed my Noctua fans today. Quieter, but not earthshaking. But I think my CPU cooler fan and GPU are now the noisy ones. Turned GPU fan down from 100% to auto again, running at 40% now. My CPU temps are down about 4 degrees, and the GPU 3, so think these Nocs are moving more air too. Guess a PWM Noc for the cooler might be next on my list

    How quiet are they really? A lot of "silent" fans I have run into are quieter...but they still whine, or something like that. I would be tempted to get some except for the colour factor :P

    I use Noctua fans and the only fan I can hear is the sound card fan. If they made a Noctua fan for the card I would install it.

    Been reading reviews, and the "tone" of the fan is as important as the db rating. The Noctuas have no clicking, or "huffing" as opposed to some others. Was just reading up on their PWM fans, especially the NF-F12 PWM Focus Flow fan for my CPU cooler. At 12v they flow 55cfm , and make some noise, but at 5v and 7v could not be heard at all. If I replace my CPU cooler fan, I'm sure it's my GPU I'm hearing even now. Read some reviews, most are skeptical about the color, the technical jargon and such, but their conclusions are that they live up to the hype. A Guy

    Thing is I also like lighting in my case :P I currently have 2 blue leds and 3 white ones, and I like them very much. The issue is there doesnt seem to be a market for silent led fans :P I have considered buying some noctua fans, painting the frame (not the fan) black and inserting some LEDs, however it may look odd with the coloured blades, I cant paint the blades because that has a high risk of unbalancing them. My other option would be LED strips, the most appealing being Bitfenix's alchemy LED strips, due to their easily customisable lengths, however these are costly and hard to obtain within New Zealand .

    You might look into the Scythe Gentle Typhoon if appearance is also important. Not LED, but not Noc ugly

    Also found this, no experience, just sayin' :)
