In my new Antec P180B ATX Case (Ordered!) I will have four Scythe S-Flex 8.7dBA (Not really 8.7dBA) 33.5CFM fans with a Big Typhoon CPU Cooler and a stock GPU cooler that comes with the R600. And the RD600 Motherboard will use heatpipes not active cooling so that's silent, too.
If you could hear my PC, I wouldn't be worthy of my title now would I? Lol, as of now I have the 3 stock P180 fans set to "L" and I added a 14dBA SilenX intake and I used my dremel to cut out all the fan grills to reduce the sound of turbulant air. My brother just ordered his P180B and he ordered 8 Scythe fans which are considered one of the top 3 quietest fans available: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185004
Obviously I'm not naive enough to believe it's 8.7dBA claim but as I said, SilentPCReview did a roundup of 120mm silent fans and this was among the best.
Forgot to say, he ordered 8 of them so he could use 4 for his case and I'm using the other 4 to replace my fans, its damn quiet as it is but you can still faintly hear my computer and that's not good enough for me.
I got my 8.7dBA Scythe SFF21D fans, I installed four into my new P180B for my brother's computer and it's actually slightly louder than my computer with the 3 Antec TriCools and the SilenX fan, I'm going to swap the SilenX with one of those Scythes but the stock P180B fans are actually a bit quieter than these Scythes lol.
I was running a 754 3000+ at a little over 3Ghz (2 stock) but i switched motherboards and now im at stock. I no longer have the Tornados on at all and the processor fan is no longer blowing 90 CFMs. behold the beast! http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v3...olingpower.flv
