Well, received the XSPC fans, faster than I thought biggrin.gif. They are much more silent at full speed than the R4. So here's a comparison, but not perfectly the same:

Test done with Prime95:

With R4, 1x apache at the bottom: max core temp: 69-71C

With XSPC, changed the stock from fan with an apache also: max core temp: 66C

I did not add the front fan under the DVD drive for now, I need to make my plastic fitting for the fan. This isn't bad at all smile.gif They push alot of air, they have good static pressure, and silent at full silent. I really like them.

Great! They seem to be potent fans even if they are cheap!

Yes they are, but when I look at them, they looks less cheap than the R4 in term of build quality biggrin.gif

I'll post picture when I get my USB cable. Received also my sleeving kit xD

As that post appears to rely on numbers provided by the manufacturers, not objectively tested real-world results, I'd recommend ignoring that post. Unless you have full confidence that companies like Coolermaster are truthful and accurate in their performance specs.
