They are fine. They won't last as long as fluid bearings of course.. but I'd never think of paying the price premium for Noctuas ever.

I will be putting 3 delta fans into my machine ;)

But they are useful compared to a Noctua.

The problem with Slipstreams isn't that they are sleeve bearing fans, but that they have low static pressure. They're awesome as case fans, but not ideal for use with heatsinks or radiators. For that purpose, you'd be better off with their Gentle Typhoon fans.

So Noctua fans are not good considering Performance to Noise ratio? i would prefer my computer to be as quiet as i can make it without losing to much performance.

Everything I've heard about Noctua fans has been positive, but Scythe fans are still better.

I like your build. I was wondering if you will be posting pictures of your build - I am thinking of getting the 800D but I would like to see as many pictures as possible of what other people have done with it.

- Just to keep the fan topic flowing lol - I have also heard very good things about the typhoon fans I will probably be purchasing a few for my build.
