The GentleTyphoon is listed at 29dba while the CM R4 is listed as 19db just seemed odd to me that CM R4 is almost double the CFM but a lot quieter.
heheeh right now you mentioning those details of *db... I also find that pretty odd... maybe they aren't correct or probably *special fans
You could probably look on Google there are videos of people testing many different fans.. showing you how its the sound (from lowest to max speed)
As for TIM... on my case Shin-Etsu the one that actually comes with the H50, for me it actually lowered the temps instantly... applying newly that same original TIM.... no clue why.. I'm guessing what comes from factory distribution turns old etc(Waiting on those H50 boxes many months before its distributed)... But I did tests with AC5, MX3 & Shin Etsu... for me *Etsu again applied made it better. But anyways.... don't change the AC5... lets see what happens when you get the new fans - I'm certain it will be better than what you currently are experiencing.Edited by sendblink23 - 5/13/10 at 2:56pm
