    Check out the Scythe Gentle Typhoons AP15s real nice fans.

    The AP-15s actually have a pretty low CFM rating, though they have a very high static pressure (good). Xigmatek makes some fairly quiet fans that you can find on Newegg that are <20 dBA but push just over 60 CFM, and come in a variety of LED colors.

    That said, my Scythe Slipstreams (highest RPM model) aren't overly loud, but you certainly can hear them.

    Correct. They are a very good balance of low noise and decent airflow for the CFM rating they have. Most radiators run lower FPI of 7-11 anyway, so low to medium speed fans work fine. Static pressure for fans is better than CFM if you are to choose between them.

    There were some Scythe Ultra Kaze's on sale for $9 on Jab-Tech last week...I picked up 4. They had the 1000, 2000 and 3000 rpm models all at that price (38mm size).

    Ahh...still do:

  5. I think the 2000s might actually be a dBA or two quieter than my Slipstreams, though mine are supposedly rated for ~100 CFM. They work pretty well anyway though.

    Worst case is you get some Delta 120x38s and you overvolt them to push 200+ CFM :D
  6. Sure, if you want to test aircraft in your in-home wind tunnel.

    I have a couple of those at home I am testing right now.
