    Thought my Arctic cooler A/c 12 was good. Wow !!! This thing kills it. Silenx 120 mm fan 14DBA 72cfm. Ac /12 is a awesome fan but this fan was so quiet I had to check to see if it was running right. The only complaint I have is it is giving off a terrible paint smell hope that wears off soon. It lowered my cpu temps by 3 degrees and my case temp by 8 degrees.

    Well I bought It at Micro Center and it burned up in my computer room. Apparently that smell was the motor burning up LOL. While it worked it worked LOL. When I tell you this fan was on fire It was on FIRE!!!!

    Paint smell?! :eek: Should be sounding some alarms here!! You may have a leak in 1 or more of your heat pipes. Better check it out before it leaks on your motherboard and does some permanent damage (ie eats away at the tracks and corrodes components).

    EDIT:
    Sorry, didn't read you last comment. Anyway, better a fan than a damaged motherboard right!

    Probably a bad batch, SilenX do make v.good fans, their damn expensive tho, I can rarely justify the cost to myself to buy them tho.

    Well I will tell you they move as much air as they say and are silent. However, my Ac/12 is a good fan too and not even a 3rd of the price.
