How's this?

It's 7.8 more CFM than the stock fan on the BT, and it's still only 16 dBA! So now my decision is whether to get the silent cat or the thunderblade which is 5dBA louder but pushes 23.6 more CFM than the stock BT fan and 15.8 more CFM than the silent cat. What do you think?

They now have RPM monitoring! I agree with PCnerd Panaflo fans are awesome for low noise + High CFM I have my Panaflo medium running full speed (85 CFM) and don't hear it (I live in a small dorm room(14'x11')). The Thunderblades are nice but they have rather large dead spots IMO (and in comparison to Panaflo, I have two 120mm thuderblades in my Tt case). Just my opinion.

Heres a link to the fans by Panaflo

Heres another retailer

And newegg - not very many at the egg but they have some

The fans with BX in the model name have RPM monitoring.

Heres a link to some more info on panaflo

PS - just read your last post scar that fan is pretty nice However I am still skeptical of Tt fans... lol

looks like that one has the highest CFM/dba ratio...I'd go with that...I use the Silverstone one, but I'm sure this one is good too...not as high CFM capability as the silverstone, but to each their own!

So at it's highest RPM it's louder than 21dBA? I was afraid of that. Lots of reviews on newegg said the same thing. Maybe I'll go with the Silent Cat. My friend has two of those and they're very quiet.

Well, in terms of cooling...does it work really well?
