Mate, there is such things as high quality quiet case fans, so yes it is common that a fan built in to a PSU is going to be louder than 7 quiet case fans.
What is so hard to believe about that?

Thank you lol.. With my fan running at 1000 rpms I can barely hear them at all.. I hear my psu fan spin up more then my case fans. Now when I game and my fans are at 2000rpms that's a whole other story.. And in my opinion you really need the bottom fans as the front fans have to far to go to hit the gpus.. More airflow is always better.. My 7 fans at 1000 rpm will move more air then your 4 fans at 2000 rpm..And it will be quieter..

Agreed about the fans I've taken out the stock fans and replaced them with bitfenix pro and sp fans and even though I have more fans than stock, it is so much more quiet. They run on Low Rpm unless I'm running prime 95 they only ramp up when temps exceed 65c on my custom loop. Even the mcp 35 pump is barely heard unless I'm stressing the cpu to 100percent when it ramps up it is loud. But gaming or any other program's I run you can't really hear anything it's very quiet. This is with 11 fans versus 4 at stock but my gpu is on water too so the loud fans could have been contributed to the gpu fan before.

he was talking about the corsair "high performance" fans, they run at aprox 25-35db

that wasnt the point, buying its still an overkill, yes of course more airflow is better but you dont need it, its like putting diamonds on a bicycle. i never said i use 4 fans at 2000rpm, the point of what i said was that 4 fans is more than enough to cool your trooper/stryker

It depends on what cpu you are using and overclock. If your running higher clocks you will need more fans to dissipate heat. I can reduce heat quite significantly using more than 4 fans. It just helps pull more cool air into the case and push/exhaust the hot air out. 3930k for example uses a lot of watts so to help keep temps down to a minimum a few extra fans does the trick. The coolmaster stormtrooper is quite a big atx case so 4 fans can be a little restricted in circulating airflow.

So putting more airflow in you case which is made to have airflow is like putting diamonds on a bicycle? Lmao what are you talking about?Can you please read this before you make stupid comparisons.And next time you run your AC in your house close all but 2 vents cause anything more is overkill..Your house will still cool down and it may take longer but who cares right?Cause having a vent in every room is overkill..I think i got dumber by just reading your post.. Look at point number 6.

the caviar black is pretty close to ssd speeds so i would recommend to buy a 120gb ssd and put your OS and the programs that you use the most there, and all your games on the caviar black. i wouldnt really recommend XFX, they are known to use cheap components, if you want a good psu buy a seasonic or a corsair psu. the amount of fans you are adding is very useless and will make your rig very noisy, unless you would have like 4xcrossfire 4 fans is more than enough

huh? all i can say is wrong wrong wrong wrong.
4 fans? what kind of a system are you running?
the reason you are wrong is simple. it depends on your taste, and what you use it for.
if you are running a basic pc with intentions of internet surfing? 1 fan is enough. if you are on ocn and have a high end system, you need airflow.

if you intend to OC to the max. you need more fans.
heat kills overclocks. period.... heat kills components.... period

airflow is key between 4ghz or 5ghz, esp on air cooling. but just as important in water cooling.

ummm no
yes there are things called fal controllers. that can change fan speed. most if not all mobos have some built into the mobo, and there are tons of after market solutions as well as diy solutions.\

+1 more fans = lower speed to achieve same cfm/ static pressure

sorry my friend. but you get facepalms so much wrong with this statement
doh.gifdoh.gifdoh.gifdoh.gifdoh.gif
how is good fans bad? more air less sound? low speeds?
