yes but I'm hoping that I can have it produce high CFM some of the time, and undervolt nicely the rest of the time. Or at least leave me with cooling headroom to respond to rises in ambient during summer months. I don't need 100% silent all of the time. I am willing to sacrifice cooling for noise so...

There is als...
