I know someday the pump in my Ch-50 is going to give up the ghost where on air if the fan dies you can just replace the fan and keep on trucking and I'll have to replace my whole unit.
Well that all depends if your hardware can take more power, when running prime95 and Furmark on the highest settings my comp only uses 400w max, thats with my PII B50 @ 3.8GHz and my HD5770 clocked at 960core and 1445mem, that leaves me with an extra 150w not being used, granted I am not trying to bring my PSU to its limits but I doubt that the fans that I am using, even if i get that Delta that pulls 17.7w max, will bring my PSU to unstable limits.

Yeah I understand and if you can handle the noise then I say more power to ya. For me fan noise kills my ears. After 13 years of no ear protection in loud hard rock bands my ears are very sensitive to high frequency noise. That's why I love my Ch-50.

lol yea I usually have my headphones on, but even then my comp is actually really quiet with all case fans + my CPU fan turned all the way up. Now when my GPU fan is cranked up past 60% it gets loud lol.

I would like to see, if im at the limits of the fans CFM or the V8 it self. I've been up to 3.8GHz on my B50 but i really want to be at the magic 4.0GHz on air.
Ok, that fan will blow a magzine off the rack! I mean that too. One thing we've learned over the years is that the stated CFM of a fan isn't always what they say it is. You want to also blow your ears out, then yes get a Delta, but you should first put one of these in the top blowhole.

Mindy has Super Saver shipping so everything we buy is shipped free and the distribution center is 35 miles away so most stuff we buy from them gets here the next day. I have 2 on my table right now, one will go in the top of Mindy's Scout, the other in the rear out of my Haf 932. They'll go in with no fan slowing noise altering devices in the way. I'm doing major fan overhaul in our cases as soon as the rest of the supplies come.
This is coming from Canada: http://www.mountainmods.com/mountain...unt-p-405.html
Which will hold this beauty: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835214007
And the bottom front will be lit by this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27390
Pictures will be made when all is ready to set up and of course, after they're in.

I am going BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, I know, I have them both. The Antec blue is a little lighter, more like the color from a blue CCFL. The CM blue is very blue, like the most recent set of LEDs that have hit the market, like the ones above. If you mix them they kinda flush each other out and you get a medium blue inside the case but if they're both together you'll see a difference.
