Cpu fans

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have this fan on a Mugen II. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835705002

I am trying to lower the fan noise on my computer and was wondering if going to one or two GT AP-15's would be quieter without sacrificing performance. My CPU is a PII955@3.7. I do not use a fan controller and run them at 100%.

AP-15 is rated at 28 dBA so it's going to be quieter than that 35 dBA Panaflo. Why don't you try it with just one fan first since you're only OC to 3.7 plus AMD chips don't run as hot as, say, the Core i7. You can always add a second fan later on.

But if you want the best performance out of that cooler then yeah, get 2 and do a push/pull.
