Do you mean case fans?

Throw that in with a nice gpu (even on a budget) and you can have yourself a great rig to game on on ultra. Keep with the ivy bridge and save some money. Delidding in the future can give you a 5ghz clock. thumb.gif

see, i was thinking haswell because i need it to be energy efficient, thus the need for passive air cooling. can ivy bridge do that?

CPU fans need to be always on even on Haswell. If you are in Arctic or Antartica it'll be a different thing.

I live in Canada and it gets very cold in the winter. I don't want to turn them off though, but at least run them at the bare minimum rpm.

The motherboard you listed Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H has preset fan speeds you can choose from. You won't get even more control than that on this motherboard.

Please view this page for slides.

Haswell is the most efficient Intell CPU, however, Haswell puts motherboard VRM control on the chip which increases "heat." Therefore Ivy Bridge and Haswell are close in heat produced, cooling needed.
Haswell does more at the same GHz.
Cooler master produces a 4 pack of fans that go on sale around $12-16. Nate Loon does quiet low rpm fans.

Cougar makes strong and quiet fans go on sale for about $10 each. There was a write up comparison, Gelid fans did well. Silent PC Review (SPCR) has good articles.
