My Noctua's just arrived. Haven't had a chance to actually install them, but I hooked one up to a mobo header to try it out, and holy !

I went from the 1350 rpm YL's to the 1200's to make things quieter, but these things, even at full speed, are quieter still! Using those inline resistors... unreal. I wasn't too impressed with Noctua's earlier fans, but these things are bloody amazing.

That said, my backofhand-o-meter suggests that the 1200 rpm YL's might be moving a little more air as open fans, so I'll probably save these for when my TRUE arrives.
