Of course it would beat all heatsinks but maybe the Corsair H100; and don't say "you should have changed the fans" because two 2200 rpm fans will always beat any 1200/1500/1700 rpm fans no matter the brand. I prefer a big heatsink or a proper watercooling setup. I can't imagine how loud this new one is going to be.
Yeah, if you need high RPM fans, the GT 2150 gives the best performance per db. The fans they package with these all in one units move a lot of air, but are not easy on the ears at full tilt.
