Notice the CFM.
on a Black Ice GTX?
I really hate not having recorded proper test results when i was doing a lot of testing,keeping quoting Martin is getting old but his results are pretty similar.
My bad for not being a bit more detailed regarding the 38mm fans . . .
I was speaking of, and testing with, sub 3000 rpm ones, that on the whole, are not much more in the db range than the 25mm silverstones I tested them against. The ones I tested are 2400 to 2600 rpm, and about 6 mmH2O SP in their specs. This Koolance model seems way overspec'd. The FM122 at only 32mm thick, bests it demonstrably, and I'll be using 4 of those on the Monsta 240, if there's room.
I have the monster 184 cfm / 20mmH2O Koolance fans on my GTX 420 in my 810 build, but that's too much noise to take for long periods when the performance isn't needed.
Those things push air thru like an F5 tornado, but the mix 'n match builds are more daily driver, gamer builds.
Sorry for not being more detailed, added that caveat to the original post.
