I have 4x 1450rpm models on 2x PA120.2s controlled by speedfan.

I chose them over the S-Flex hoping they will last longer as they are ball bearing fans and are mounted horizontally.

From what I've read in some forums these are suppose to be the best fans for water cooling radiators.

But what is the actual noise level when undervolted? Can it be undervolted to a noise level comparable to a Nexus Real Silent or Scythe Jyuni (800rpm) 120mm?
