The OCN Phobia Of Small Fans Club

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Who else is as afraid as I am of small fans?

Really, anything under 120mm I won't touch because of noise levels, without really having ever tried a decent 80mm fan. Anyone else like this?

Oh yeah. 80mm is disgustingly scary.

I have a 80mm fan on my side panel...

It is a nice little thing, but I have to keep it away from my 120mms in case it gets jealous and starts eating too many vitamins

The only reason I don't like small fans is that they're so dang loud since they have to spin at such high RPMs to move a little bit of air :\\
