On to your actual question.... as of now I've got an Enermax twister PWM fan on my heatsink. Real temp right now says my E8400 is at 32C. Seems pretty good to me and the fan is really quiet. I do have sitting on my desk a Noctua NF-P12 that I'm going to replace the Enermax with. Not really because ...

Well the S1 wont fit becuase of a side fan. I ordered the HR-03 GT with a scythe Kama-flex 92mm Low speed fan. I wanted to try out these newer FDB 92mm fans and see how they are. Ive read some good reviews on them so far. Can't you get a S1 and bend it? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v221/AuraAl...

That wont work cause tower coolers get higher temps if they are in an horizontal position compared to vertical.

It'd probably be better to tell us the model number than to post a really tiny picture... :P But it's very easy to do a 5v mod to try and slow down the fan and find out how it will sound when run slower.

lets call it a fatpipe, that is in contact with the entire cpu?

I just realise that making it wider towards the top might not be a good idea. But still, my main thought is exemplified here!
