Does anyone know what the Db rating on the TT120 is? If you dont, could you at least tell me how it stacks up in comparison to the other parts of your system? (ie, noiser then PSU but not as much as GPU, or something like that) I am thinking of getting it, but I value quietness above all else, so if its going to go off like a jet engin, then no thanks

Using the controller it comes with it's quieter and pretty much silent on low. On all the way to the left.

But once you get about 1/5 of a turn on controller knob it really kicks up and gets loud, maybe it's just my rheostat, but past about 1/5 the RPM and noise goes up.

All in all it's perfect on low CFM and noise wise. I wouldn't suggest medium or above unless you got ear plugs, as it makes an awful noise inside of those fins.

Loud, loud, loud IMO. I broke the controller it came with though, lol. You'd be better off replacing it with a Yate Loon or something similar.

Not bad at all. I don't mind the noise level anymore, I used to care a lot. Right now I have every fan on max in my case.

About the Tuniq, when you set it to the lowest setting (which is still sufficient), it is very quiet. For me, you can turn the Tuniq fan controller knob about half way until you notice the sound.

If I turn it down to the lowest setting on the controler, then put it down to 90% in speedfan, it becomes quieter than my PSU. Also quieter than my 8800GTS(72% fan speed on the 8800gts).

Honestly, the fan controller doesn't change the noise for me. Which means that it is quieter than the other fans in my PC. I consider my PC pretty quiet too.

2000 RPM fan is rated at 34 DB , Extremely Quiet at 1000 RPM. 1000 RPM fan is rated at 20 DB.
