Panaflo Medium 87cfm @ 35cfm. That's not loud at all, 45dbs is a different story... Not really bad, but it can get annoying.

If you're getting a fan controller you might as well go with a delta... Now that's "on tap" power.

I don't mind loud fans if they're really loud.. but when they're a high pitched noise, instead of a low pitched noise.. it really annoys me.. lol

well, it depends which way u want to go. either low dba, low cfm, or a fan controller with delta fans which will give u better performance when u need it

yes, theyre good, but not quite as good of performer as the XP120

but either get the 120mm zalman or the XP120 with panaflo medium
