9x 40db is NOT 360 db , but it IS going to be more as 40 db - there is a formula somewhere ... cant remember, could be +1 db per 2nd fan.
now, everything can be handled... have the fans facing a wall and put a cushion or folded blanket between them and wall - but 10-15-20 cm distance, dont want to choke them
In the case itself, connect any fan you want to any header you want.
Yep, I also have found this dB calculator
. For the first fan is added 3dB to the overall noise, for the second is less, for the third is less...
But how, how a fully sane person would spend 40 bucks in that piece of ridiculous toy? Hahahaha
What would be better: 9 fans in PWM control or 9 fans up to a fan/pump controller? The costs would be the same, but with controller I could also control my pump and measure temperatures.Edited by Lucas Bezerra - 9/1/13 at 6:57am
