1. 3 speed control speed setting and is 22 - 39.6 db loud. The performace is 67.28 - 94.92 CFM
2. A fixed control speed setting at a performace rate of 125.5 CFM but the db rate is 45.
Everyone saying 45 db is very loud.. like could you maybe compare it to something? like how much louder would it be then a factory bought MIRCON PC without any fans added or removed or anything. Do you know if it owuld be about this loud or quieter? I dont mind what is going right now.. but I cant tell how loud 45db is.
or if you didnt understand that.. abotu how loud is just the average fan in a DELL computer, factory bought?
well 45db is loud enough to hear about 20 feet away, more if you have good ears. fan noise is usually more annoying too because of its whine sound. 32db is nice and quiet for most people. those microns and dells have very quiet fans, they are made that way beacuse customers complain obviously.

I can see that you own a Delta or similar 45+ dB fan. Well, everything is relative. In my ears 30dB is pretty loud. Im talking from experience; I had to reduce the fan speed on my 60mm-28dB-21CFM-4550rpm CPU-fan because the noise was too load. With Zalmans "FanMate 1" I managed to reduce the Fan-speed to around 3200-3500rpm, thus making the noise more acceptable.

No Jihiggs, you have to do better then that. :confused:
If you try to write something that suppose to be sarcastic (or whatever it suppose to be), at least write something that is understandable and comprehensible for other readers as well - not just for yourself. Besides; whats your problem? Give it a rest will you - and dont bother answering this reply.

Good. Just use italic or colored letters, or maybe a different size or fontstyle and everything is OK. Its an understatement that signatures should be clearly distinguishable from the actual reply-text. Look at Camieabz's example.
I went from a Delta 60mm fan to a variable speed 80MM fan. At 3000RPM or roughly just over 30dB, I can't hear my system at all, unless I put my ear on the case. I don't know but I find 30dB almost silent (a very gentle whisper). But then again, as you said, the bigger the fan the lower frequency the sound.
