"Specifically developed to deliver significant airflow while maintaining low noise levels" This must be an industry "first"! Whoda thunkit?

Snore, snore, yawn, yawn, wink, wink, nudge, nudge!:D

The 120 and 140 have higher airflow than the current ones, and they come with a low speed adaptor. The low speed adaptor must be a resistor, rather than a 7v or 5v - because they quote starting voltage for both.

They aren't PWM, which is a shame.

They're quite useful I guess, for people who want a measure of control without a fan controller and who can't connect them to motherboard headers..

Personally I think anything up to 20 db is really quiet. I personally would like to have the most cfm for 20 db with fluid dynamic bearings. That would be my ideal fan.
