15.8db level fan here with 38.9CFM

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=24567

I never used it, but it seems good.

However, http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...index&cPath=49 here is a whole page of fans if you want to look through, they usually have pretty good fans that run quiet and yet give decent CFM.

SilenX fans 14dBA and blue. Very Very nice fans 72CFM's of awesomeness,
"The ultimate in airflow to noise ratio, iXtrema Pro Fans are the only fans in the industry to be designed with silence and optimal airflow in mind" from silenx site.

They also lies about their specs. Supposedly when they do the noise test for the fans they are farther away from what they are actually supposed to be.

Awww , the chrome one I had was good. I had it for 6 months, I sold the case though and the parts to get my current sig rig now. I guess I got lucky with my fan. I'll keep your opinions in mind about silenx though.
