Another help picking fan request

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok for system #2. I am looking for a better aftermarket air cooler for my e6400. (System #1 is getting the water treatment) I am kind of looking at the Artic Freezer 7 Pro because I like the idea of pwm control. I want quiet when i'm coding or surfing and when I play games I like how pwm auto increases the RPMs. but I know there are better coolers out there (tuniq, infinity) but I don't want a little fan speed controller in a pci slot or bay. Does any1 know of a better cooler than the ac7pro that uses pwm or have any replaced the 120mm fan on a higher end cooler with a pwm from jmc? Currently I don't OC but I may do some mild bumps in the near future.

As a side note, I tried a 7700-AlCu I had laying around and find my idle temps are around 41C and my load playing eq2 is around 52C. (Ambient is 76F) I am not overly impressed by those numbers and fan noise at high was annoying.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. - Kevin
