I don't want go passive just for the shake of it, but for the silence. I don't mind of puting a yate loon exhaust fan, and I wouldn't mind another heatsink fan if its big and extremely noisless (another undeverolted YL). I haven't marked any price, but I don't expect the whole thing going above 300â...

I need reccomendations on a system please! (MB+CPU+Graphics)

I've been days reading bits from here and there to make the best choice, but there's too much information I can handle. I had an Asrock mboard, athlon 64 3200+ with a Scythe Ninja plus a passive GFti4200. Everything worked fine, fanless, until the processor or the mobo decided to die (I cannot work ...

the human brain can't distinguish a difference of only 1 dBA...... That's not true.

Does anybody know the real dB and CFM value it could have? What about motor/ bearing noise?

Is Noisebloker 92mm fan better than Yate Loon?

I've already ordered Yate Loon fans but im dissappointed as I've just checked other fans and seem quite superior in both noise and airflow.

Noiseblocker @12V:
22 dB/a and 64m³/h

Yate loon @12V
28 dB/a and 55 m³/h

I used to use a TP 480w and tried various fan-swaps in that to quieten it down. In the end I gave up as I had to run the fans too fast to keep it cool (exhaust temp under 50C). I strongly recommend that you consider selling the TP and replacing it with something known to be efficient and quiet. Hav...
