Yea I saw that to ... doesn't make sense
... but I still stand by my 8c-12c difference (H80i vs H60) from experience.
There is a whole "stink" about Dustins review HERE
but he's been pretty reliable in the past so take it with a grain of salt?

Guess it depends on your definition of "Performance"
... I humbly disagree
For my setup/OC/load/ambients, if I switched my fans to "pull" I'd have to at least run them on medium to match the perfromance I get on a "low" setting in "push" ... Which is an audible difference in "Noise" for me ...
And his "Dust (cat hair?) Problem" ... Wow that must be a "Top Intake" setup ... another reason I advocate a "Top Exhaust" ... I even live in the dusty desert and in a friends system that he neglected for over a year I never saw anything like that, with my system or anyone elses I've set up as an "Exhaust" ...

Interesting idea? ... All depends on your loads/ambient temps and most importantly your original case circulation ... it may just work especially for stock clocks and if the rad is mounted in the top of the case w/ (2)120mm-140mm fan vents and very important that you have a "positive pressure" with your case flow/circulation setup (maybe reverse your rear exhaust fan to intake?). ...
Let us know, might as well try it!
But seriously, I agree with Mavisky... just run them on low and with a proper case fan setup, I bet the loudest noise will be from your pumps "hum" ... or replace the fans with some cheaper low rpm fans like I suggested to "Par" AP-13 or AP-14's?Edited by TomcatV - 2/26/13 at 1:48pm
