My temps currently when folding are:
Interesting you mention that, I had a similar experience using YL D12SM-12's when I first water cooled my 600T, they made a grinding noise as well at low speeds, and then when I would raise the voltage with the fan controller it would turn into a faster wurring noise. I'm a big fan of the air they move, but the noises kill me, happened with three different sets I bought, ranging from the plain black ones such as yours, to a set of clear with blue LEDs, and then a set of clear with red LEDs. I only have two of the Gelid fans in the build right now, but as you can see from the pic above pretty soon all the fans on the rads will be the Gelids. I personally like them a lot, they move a great amount of air and they look great. Also they respond very well when on a fan controller and don't make any kind of grinding noises when the voltage is lowered. But the price is a little outrageous
Current temps get to around 55 Celsius on the CPU at 4.5GHz, and the cards get to 41 and 42 Celsius folding at 850MHz. This is all with an ambient temp of around 25-26 Celsius. I'm hoping to get better temps with the new rad, the new fans, and the new pump.
