It'd be an alright combo...but for your particular application I'd recommend a Zalman. They're quiet, and reliable.
I'm not expecting 17dBA, especially for 79CFM. I suppose the 7700Cu would be the cooler of choice for this PC.

I considered that. I might be doing a little, so I need something a little better. But the 7700Cu is supposed to be silent, and the price is not too bad, so I might go for it anyway.
Then don't use the fan controller lol.

It looks like it uses 3 pin or 4 pin fan, so just plug that into the mobo.

Not to mention just because there is a knob there, doesn't mean you have to use it.
Being able to control a fan is a silly reason not to buy something

I want it to control itself, because if it doesn't it'll always be loud or always be hot.

Also, what about the Blue Orb and the Zalman 8000:

I'm not trying to be a fanboy for this Enzotech cooler...
But like i said, plug it into the motherboard...
Then mobo can control it just like any other fan, it's as simple as that.

And it's not like you can't adjust the knob once and then never touch it again, that's what i did with my tt120 before i replaced the fan.

Well, thanks for everyone's help, but my client decided to go with P180B and Ultra-120 instead. A bit of a better combo IMO, but a lot more expensive.
