just how much louder are M1a's opposed to L1a's? I am about to mod my zalman 400b as i have found the installed fan to have horrible acoustic properties. It's definetly quiet but is cerintly not a smooth sound by any stretch of the imagination and seems to mostly consist of bearing chatter and a slo...

this was the major concern i have when modding my antec 380tp. With the default fans the air comming from the back of the psu is very warm. I am still to decide which fans would be best for the job, but i think that panaflo L1a's will not be moveing enough air for that psu.

Word from Artic Cooling is that the next revision NV Silenc...
