I trust xbit more over that random guy on those forums...

Also notice how the only thing louder than those are the Scythe Ultra Kaze. There isn't any need for any normal person to have a fan run at such high speeds. A 47 CFM Yate Loon would be fine for most people. And if you do need fans that fast, it would only be on a heatsink.

In that case, I would use a Sanyo Denki San Ace 1011. They undervolt really nicely and get really quiet. The only reason I'm not using mine is that I don't have screws long enough for my heatsink.
