S3 standby and psu fan off? or on?

In my DIY HTPC I have a 200W Fortron mATX PSU. I've replaced the PSUs 60mm LOUD fan with a quiet 80mm fan which I'm powering from one of the fan headers on the motherboard. When my comp enters S3 standby all fans connected to mobo headers turn off, right? And fans connected to molex connectors spin ...

Vintage cooler question (Thermalright AX7)

I've been building a HTPC project on a budget with second hand parts. I've got a XP-M 2400 1.45V and a Glacialtech SilentBreeze II with a "17dB"/1900rpm 80mm nanometer ceramic bearing fan (made by Globalwin I think but sold here in Finland as Liebermann) I could get a Thermalright AX7 for very low p...

You didn't read the forum thread link?
Its probably 60DB on 24V. Other 4114 series fans on papst site are 65db on 24V. The guy whos selling them has tested them running on 7V and 5V. So I was thinking they'd be perhaps quiet enough for me on 5V and still with a decent CFM?
