Yes, the small high rpm fans tend to be louder than larger low rpm ones. How can you not know this?Talk about Drama , it's now the loudest fan in a pc, if they're going to that quite extreme ,a bit more effort would be nothing.
I have no idea. And I can't say I care very much about Intel HEDT). If you have a lot of money and you spend it on a PC, it's your choice (conscious, I hope).Doesn't intels latest hedt feature fans on the Vrms , dya think that's noisey.
I've mentioned earlier that a chipset fan is something that shouldn't happen in consumer PCs, i.e. be forced on buyers who don't care about benchmarks.
If similar fans will appear on lower AM4 chipsets, it'll make this platform even less interesting in the mass market.
And if they don't (despite PCIe4.0 support), it'll mean it wasn't the controller but X570 design/tuning after all.
