Honestly, I'm glad I got the one I did (2500rpm, med I believe). If anything I would get the higher one if I had to do it again (as long as it had the rpm sensor). I use speedfan right now to control it. I can't even hear the motor noise under about 60%. I usually put it on 55% and it is nearly silent, but I'm really glad I can turn it up to 80-100% for stress testing. It helps keep my temps under control.

Yes, it is a little loud at full speed, I definitely wouldn't have it at full speed 24/7. Keep in mind, my rig is caseless, so it is sitting about 2ft away from my head. I still crank it up for gaming, and with my headphones with amazing isolation plus game audio going it doesn't bother me.

Just for comparison, during games I set my hd4890 fan at 50%, and most of the noise I hear comes from that. A rough guess (gfx fan is considerably higher pitch than panaflo), my gfx fan at 40-45% is about equivalent to the noise of the panaflo at 100%.

Shoot!
I do not have problem with noisy fans, my wife does LOL
This Rig will be 24/7 so I believe that it is better if I can turn the fans low.
I will try the Panaflo medium and I also considering SANYO DENKI 120mm x 38mm 9G1212H1011. But I think it is to strong. Is it?

Didn't read whether you had a fan controller or not but if not and your going to run it full blast then its not a good idea. I mean the Sanyo Denki is an amazing fan and the sound it makes is really 'clean' but it is a beast so your going to hear it at full tilt. Panaflo medium would be good and if your looking for real quiet but less cool you can go for a Gentle Typhoon or a S-Flex G. All listed in my guide (1st link in sig)

IIRC, the EVGA Classified had a really large northbridge heatsink and another user on this forum had to install the Mega horizontally with the airflow going up-down instead of out the rear case fan. Just to make sure, your northbridge heatsink should not be taller than ram with low-profile heatspreaders installed into your board.
post #665 of 1212
yea it is larger but I have seen people do it. Mine is just really curved I might RMA the board back to ncix but then I have no computer I'm gonna buy a Mega and if it doesn't fit e-w I will rma the board

I have seen somewhere that panaflo M is at 35 and Sanyo at 39dB not a big difference. Right?
I will use some kind of speed controller for CPU fan definitely and I still see that Panaflo Medium as a better choice although I didn't had good experience with Panaflo ultra high. It undervolted really bad with pretty much noise and clicking sound.
Thanx for your help so far! +1

If the room is dead quiet then you will be able to hear the Panaflo Medium. but if theres a TV on or something you can't hear it at all.

Just for reference, +10dB will sound twice as loud, so it will be noticeable, but not terribly louder.

Back to this, what if there was a shroud between them? Would it work? Would the fans wear out?
