And you have to think about ur power supply too...I mean if you want performance for cheap, you'll always get noise and that's what you're doing, overclocking....and if you says you don't overclock then you wouldn't buy the Big Typhoon in the first place. And from what I know 16db? That's just too quiet, almost dead quiet. If you're noise sensitive then I guess you play games with sound off?....Or I mean if at night you need the system to be quiet to do homework or project then you would use another system. You can't just have both when you only pay for the price of one. If you want performance for cheap you need to bear with the higher db. I have had a fan that's 29db and I don't really hear it much when I close my case...Ummm what I'm trying to say is if you want quiet then you've already got it. If you want more performance then buy higher CFM fans with little bit noisier but not neccessary noisy really. To me 30 CFM and less is fine, anything above that will get kinda annoying sometimes but not during intense gaming with crazy sound.
