ARRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I'm stuck on this... I'm tempting to get 220CFM 120mm Delta fan, or quieter fan? I'm lost into this, the noise's not a problem for me as I'm profoundly deaf. Help please?

Noisy and high CFM. Nothing beats having a ultra loud fan to scare people! Although mine is only 53dBA...

Where are you going to mount that monster anyway? I hope not on your heatsink, because it will probably snap the motherboard.

Get the Delta TFB Series TFB1212GHE - it's one of (if not the highest) CFM 120x38mm fans out there. 220CFM @ 65dBA. I have one, and it definitely means business.

Sorry, but it's out of stock right now

you get used to the noise after a short time. it's just like you don't really hear the tv on in the other room after a while or the a/c kicking on and off. you only seem to notice it when you are paying attention to it. other then that well yeah.

Silverstone FM121. Not quiet by any stretch of the imagination, but quieter and pushes a crapload of air.
