Gelids are nice as **** , would recommend to anyone. Even maxed out the only noise you hear is the sound of wind (like if u stepped outside in a hurricane and the wind was blowing by your ears).
I Got a scythe kaze 12 and if u turn those puppies down to like 1/4 the system is like i have to check to see if its on.

Though my 2cents.gif about having a quiet system: It's seriously so stupid because who doesn't listen to music or game or is doing something involving sound. Even if you have the loudest system and your playing music you cant hear it so who cares tongue.gif /end rant

yeah , the only time I really want my computer to be quiet is when its sitting there folding , then the fans are going at 100% and I really dont want to hear more than a hum . And my stock NZXT fans ,and my corsair fans do that just fine/

The smoothly part comes in because not all higher speed fans will do it. Blade design can play a role in this as well.
But briefly described, the fans tempoarily draw the air space immediately above them under the cover to a slightly negative pressure, relative to the atmospheric pressure above the cover, which slightly unloads the fans, (rpm goes up a little) and then that extra differential helps accellerate an influx of air pushed by atmospheric pressure, thru the slots, which then reloads the fans. (rpm comes back down)
At just the right balance of pressure differential and flow capability, this falls into a cyclic rythm, the "throbbing" you refer to.
Once you get a fan controller, you may find some sweet spots where it doesn't manifest, or you can do a top panel mesh mod, or try different fans.

Wow, thanks for the detailed explanation. Helpful as always! I can adjust them from 40 to 80% with the Asus Fan Xpert, which is why I usually leave them at 1000RPM or below, since they are spinning slow enough it doesn't do it. I'm assuming it would still do it on a push/pull system as long as the push fan was on top. If I switched it so the push fan was on the bottom of the rad and the pull fan was exhausting out, would it still do it? I'm thinking of getting GT-15's or SP120's in about 6 months anyway so that might help.

I like them a lot more than I did the GT-15s. They are much more quiet. Plus you can sort of customize them any way you want without having to really take apart the fan, could probably paint the rings if you really wanted to. The only issue I am running into with them is a slight buzzing, but I am fairly certain the fan controller is the cause, turning the fan on and off really fast rather than actually lowering the voltage.

Just be aware there are two different types, the Performance Edition and Quiet Editions. I went with the Quiet Editions.

It could be that the pull from the bottom fans changes up the flow pattern thru them just enough that they can't fall into that audible rate synch.

Cool, I still need to get my other set of fans. Wanted to go Corsair's, but found out that the ring is only on the intake side, so it would be right up against the rad. Will either need to switch to push from the bottom and leave the XSPC's on top, or hope they make them so the ring is on the exhaust side lol. Even then though, if they were turned all the way up, the more powerful fan would be in pull, which is no good.
