That Panaflo is good one but what about the Scythe Ultra Kaze DFS123812L-2000? It seems to have slightly better specs @ lower dbs:

Fan Bearing:Sleeve Bearing
Fan Speed:2,000 RPM
Fan Airflow:87.6 CFM
Fan Noise:33 dBA
Fan Dimensions:120mm x 120mm x 38mm
Voltage: DC 12V
Connector: 3-pin

...vs the Panaflo's specs:
Dimensions: 120 x 120 x 38 mm
Fan Speed: 2100 RPM
Bearing Type: Hydro Wave Bearing
Air Flow: 86.5 CFM
Voltage: DC 12V
Current: 280 mA
Power: 3.36W
Noise: 35.5 dBA
Connector: 2-pin connector

I do not have an Ultra Kaze but I am interested. They even make a 3000rpm model that pushes 133CFM but @ 46dbs...but now we are getting quite loud again!

...and another option:

Cooljag Everflow 120mm PWM Fan - R121225BUAF

http://www.heatsinkfactory.com/coolj...21225buaf.html

Specifications
Design: 9-blade
Connection: 4-pin PWM
Dimensions: 120 x 120 x 25 mm
Rated Voltage: 12V
Operating Voltage Range: 7 ~ 13.2V
Rated Current: 0.40 Amp
Rated Input Power: 4.80W
Rated Speed: 2400 RPM
Max. Airflow: 110.03 CFM
Max. Static Pressure: 3.26 mmH2O
Sound Level: 39.5 dB(A)
Bearing Type: Two Ball Bearing
Weight: 140g

...which shares the exact same specs as the Silverstone FM121 (but with a 4-pin PMW mobo connection). Oh those sneeeeeky re-sellers!!!

The difference between a single CFM and a single dBa is not really worth mentioning. And because of their very similar specs, you'll have to look at their static pressure ratings, which should be very similar (one would hope/think)...

$15 for a hydro wave bearing
$11-12 for a sleeve bearing

The extra $3-4 is worth it to avoid the pure sleeve bearing which is not the greatest bearing type.

That fan has a 25mm depth, which produces only 3.26mm H2O of static pressure. The Panaflo (link), is deeper (38mm), quieter, doesn't push nearly as much air, but wins in the key area of static pressure: 4.57mm of H2O.

The Delta Extreme 38mm 220 CFM beats both with 26mm of H2O

And? I precisely answered the man's question...where did that fan come in?

Hi i've just brought a ASUS Triton 79 Amazing Quiet Limited Edition. here are only going to be 3200 of them made

So hope they are good espcially when i paid £55 ($110). It looks a greats

I havn't done any more overclocking but i will on the weekend

The Triton, like many other coolers, is great when you need a quite but functional cooler. I'm glad yours is doing so well!

Yeah they look the same a tunqi tower but the design and colour just looks so good. because tunqi just looks grey and life less but it performs well

will i beable to mod this cooler
