What you can do is change the fan speed through the BIOS, I always have mine set at the lowest. It isn't very loud at all when it's set at the lowest!

Mine was loud as heck even though I had it set to low in bios. Had to manually set it to >40% in speedfan to get it truly quiet. So before you go buying fans, try that.

I'm with you on that one. Suprisingly before I got the hyper 212 evo, I never found a review to say it was.

I'd say this is the best fan to use.

That's what I want^.
