Corsair intends these to run fast - it's a big radiator and needs substantial airflow. I've included a link to a great article I've been using while pondering.
Don't get me wrong - I know noise isn't always a concern for people and certainly less common on an overclockers forum!
He is using an H50 though so adding almost any fan from whisper to turbine should be an improvement regardless of your goal - unless the goal is higher temps xD
That thread was a nice read, hadn't seen that one yet thanks for the think. Sounds like our SSAP's(TM lol) will be arriving around the same day - my order may arrive monday but more likely tuesday. Really looking forward to it as well. Should be a lot of fun to play with. I was thinking of setting up some sort of low tech airflow monitoring system....cut something really light up into strips and place strategically, or some other system, have to give it

Funny man I put 2 of those on an overnight order from newegg not but 2 hours ago, lol. Had to pic up the CPU for the PC i'm building for my bro who's birthday is tomorrow - don't think I'll get it in time but hopefully will at least be done with all the friggin painting. Not going to lie I'm having fun though, first time I've tried modding anything really - http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...900-paint.html
