yeah zalmans are pretty quiet. they use this thing called fan mate1 or something, and it limits the power from 12v to 5.5v (or 5v, i forgot which). the fan spins a little slower, but its like a 120mm fan it still is effective.

yeah i read about quiet fans somewhere. There are accualy fans that spin at the same rate, but they're made so that you can't hear the motor. They cost a bit more, but still very affordable. I'm buying those for a server of mine so that I can keep it in my room..

zalmans are the way to go with air cooling.

if your lazy and don't wanna spend 200 plsu on water cooling, then just get 2 intake zalmans, and 2 exhaust zalmans.

Than get that huge ass zalman cpu cooler, forgot its name, will tell you later.

And you will have a computer that is as silent as a water cooling thingma jiggy.

plus, you don't take a chance of being a retard and frying something.
