Default NoiseBlocker Fans

Hey guys,

I'm sure we've all heard of these, and how incredible they are.
I've been hoping for a canadian e-tailer to get them because well, shipping from the states is a hastle to say the least.


Great news,

NCIX.com - Buy NoiseBlocker NB-BlackSilentFan X-Series XLP 120MM PWM Case Fan 1000-2000RPM 40.6-75.3CFM 14-31DBA - XLP In Canada.

Price sometimes can equal quality.
Question is , would the sacrifice in performance be worth the silence. Interesting to test these sometime in the future when I have the coin to run more tests.

That all depends on who you ask MarkOne.

Good is relative in terms of cooling.
For some it means quiet yet moderate performance.

For me, its CFM And Static, and to hell with the noise.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of loud fans.... I always look for the happy medium between cfm and pressure and sound. If noctua wasnt so damn ugly (imo) then they would be the perfect fan for me.
