Sure, they may be silent, but thats because they do nothing.
lol p12-1300 moves 92,3 mÂ³/h, and they are pretty silent on 1300RPM and you know what?you will have them at least 4-5y and be as good as new..
these fans are made for noctua coolers which have more space between fins and for silent PC...
I have D14 fans at 800RPM and max temp is 55C with BOINC, if i have them on 1300RPM I have 48C...tell me why in the hell I would need 1800RPM fan moving at least 3x time more air? and same is for at leas 95% of people here.
My friend had in HAF932 CM,magma,scythe all over 1600RPM and he told me he has silent PC...he came over to me and he was shocked that he cant hear my PC, he asked me what fans I have, yes I have noctua all <800RPM and he couldnt believe that I had almost same temps as he had.
