Thing is, if you run the actual calculations for summing decibel values, once you throw in a scythe ultra kaze running @ 40 decibels or w/e, adding an additional 30 db fan literally adds about 1 to ur total each time since db is on a logarithmic scale. (and once ur @ 45 decibels its adding @ about .1 per 30db fan) They don't add linearly. Just having 2 ultra kaze on ur TRUe or w/e just kinda makes it piontless to care at all how mch noise the rest of ur fans are making.

Also, let it be noted that:
30db source + 30db source = 33 db + another = ~ 34. So if you keep everything @ around 30 db you're likely to only hit 35 as your total. Once you throw down for that ultra kaze though, you may as well give up .

Here is a link to a nice calculator that I think everybody could make use of. I'm actually going to throw it up under the air cooling section and see if I can get some rep maybe .

My Rig
My E8400 is dual-core; it's running at 1.225v (stock), not greater than 50C on Orthos for 24 hours and Prime95 for 8 hours after setup and basic early tests: OCCT, memtest86+, etc. to ensure basic stability. My rig is in an Antec P-160 (all aluminum case) with 2 antec 120 mm ball-bearing fans, the front mounted low and pulling air in, and the back mounted high pushing air out. I added an antec 80mm ball-bearing fan under the top-mounted DVD burner to pull in air parallel to the rear 120mm fan, and all are powered by the mobo. I had to mount my AC Freezer 7 to blow up toward the PSU because it wouldn't fit blowing to the back - the NB heatsink was in the way, and I didn't want to cut it.

Thought I'd upload my current config, added a window, improved the cable mgmt, oh, and upgraded the video cards and cpu (see sig). Tried several fan arrangements, have settled on 3 120mm yate-loons (2-front pulling, 1 rear pushing), and a little 80mm antec that just hangs around to blow on the NB. Runs really well, with good temps and frame rates. Scored 20,493 in 3DMark06 (WinXPsp3)!

I have to say that reading over this thread is a lot of fun, I am amazed at what everyone has been doing with this case.

Nice TreeFrog! To be honest I have never seen anyone hang a fan by zip ties!!!! Do you think that the 80mm fan on the back of your MOBO helps much? Also, what is the size of it? I couldn't find one that fits mine.

Strong zip ties, and yellow like the board slots. The 80mm on the side is a "Hiper" 80mm x 15mm, I think I got it at newegg or jab-tech. It doesn't do much as far as I can tell, but I'm too lazy to remove it. I took the sides off today to replace the BIOS EEPROM - had a bad flash the other day and had to replace it. Then I hot-flashed the old one, so now I have a backup! So, anyway, I spent a little time re-arranging the cables after that. Then I thought what the heck, take some pics and post them.

Back to the fan that just hangs around: the memory heatsinks are a little high and block the air flow from the front fan over the NB + the case has all those little holes in the top that I didn't have to drill + I had a lot of nice, strong, yellow zip ties (from Home Depot). Yeah, the NB temp reached 44C once, but not any more.
