I've been benching my computer over night and I keep the kaze 3000's (2 of them) on full blast all night and I sleep just fine. And I'm not a heavy sleeper by any means. Its a low hum and it sure as hell doesnt sound like a jet I'll tell you that much. Yes they are louder than your typical pc fan but all I hear is the low frequency hum of 133cfm air moving. They arnt high pitched is my point so I can easily sleep 8 ft away from my pc while I have them full blast. I guess everyone has their own opinion on the matter. I gave up trying to have a completely silent computer because my temps were suffering because of it. Think of the sound of a small box fan at the lowest setting, its about that.
Fssbzz, dude I didn't want to say anything before because I know you already got them but to me it makes more sense to get the 3000 and use a fan controller to put it down to 2000 when you don't want the noise. I guess thats assuming you have a fan controller. Or you could also use speedfan to lower them.
Going back to my low rpm problem you guys have made me feel a bit better about it. This is a quick shot of my hwmonitor and this is at full load testing 3.9 stable at 1.37v. Like I said it will occasionally drop to 0 and I'm more worried about that than I am about the low rpm. So no one else ever gets the occasional drop to 0?
