I am bored at school and need a new project to work on after spring break.

I have access to an anechoic chamber capable of 16dBA and all the testing equipment necessary to test the sound pressure level of anything I want. In this case, computer fans. What I was wondering is if other people would be interested in the results for me to put a full review up here.

NOTE: I would not be able to test how much air the fan actually moves. Any testing like that would have to be relative. I may be able to pull some strings with the turbolab people but I don't think we have the equipment to do that.

I am pretty sure I am going to do this, but if people want to know what the results are like, I just want to know:

A) What fans do you think should be tested?
B) If you have any old fans lying around that you wouldn't mind donating.
Hey I'm a poor college kid I can't buy all these fans myself.

List of fans I have:

Silverstone FM121
A couple Yate Loons (not sure of the model)
Thermaltake Thunderblades
Scythe something or other (I can check when I get out of work)

lol test a delta. but seriously, this seems like a really cool idea, im fascinated by air cooling (probably since i cant afford anything else) so it sounds like a good thing to look into seeing as my fans are so loud and really cheap. i hope you get to testing and reviewing lol +rep for the thought.
