Also the switch on the Tri-cools makes them very nice to have on hand for builds... three fans in one. You can't go wrong with the either the Tri-cools or the Yates IMO, but four Yates for $15.99 from Petra's is pretty darned hard to beat.

You can try the Zalman ZM-F3. It's PERFECT as a case fan. It's cheap, and it has magical noise and performance above 1600 RPM. Contact me via PM if you want a link to a pretty good fans review.

That's because Nexus uses Yate Loons, and just under volts them to make them silent. It's already been known about at http://www.silentpcreview.com/

I just got a high CFM Yate Loon in my mail and WOW they move a lot of air for how quiet they are.....amazing. I have medium CFM fans on my rad, so I got this one to cool my memory and NB.

I also just got 7 of these.

http://jab-tech.com/YATE-LOON-120mm-...d-pr-3771.html

D12SH, so its the 88 CFM @ 40dB, but I am going to hook them to a 4 fan speed controller. Best of both worlds actually. Get the high speed when you need it or you can turn it down for more quieter times.

FYI the ones I got are the "Curved" Bladed ones. They had a big discussion over on another overclock forum that the ones from Jab-Tech were the re-badged ones. From what I can garner if you have a Yate-Loon that says "Made in China" on the motor label..that is a re-badge. Mine say "Yate Loon Electronics".

So yeah they have fans out there that look identical with the same model number and everything, but if they say made in china those aren't the right ones. Might be the Straight Blade version as mentioned above....I am not sure.
