They are definitely way over-rated BTW. No way a 2000RPM 120mm fan only produces 19dBA. Maybe at like 1000RPM or lower.

I have a similar clear blue LED version of that fan. Far from silent when you run them at 12V, though it moves quite a bit of air. "Silent" has far less airflow and is actually quite minimal IMO. Mine came with a VR knob though so I can adjust the fan speed easily. Basically this: CM Store but clear w/ blue LEDs.

Yeah I have 2 clears I could use if I wanted to, but I really like the effect of the lights on the black fins, thats the reason I wanted the dark knight version of this cooler over the stock.

EDIT: although LEDs where white still nice effect.
