There's a home built 10-11 dBA chamber in Vancouver.. used for testing computer hardware. Use your google-fu on Mike Chin (i don't want to link to anywhere)

Very cool read, I've done some research as well into sound chambers, and came to the same conclusions he did ... mainly that costs will rise exponentially to try to suppress noise below ~300Hz since you need much larger wedges ... which means a much larger room, etc.

It's pretty awesome to see that his DIY project (let's face it, it's not the prettiest sound chamber) worked out very well, and I'll have to keep the Blue Fill in mind if I ever build a house.

In the end the GT AP-15 won out, mainly because I already have one and know what they sound like. So they will get here and I will get them sleeved up and put onto my H100. Will I see a drop in temps? I hope so maybe a little but really it is more about same temp lower noise, although I'm thinking in the end I will get lower temps and lower noise.
Hey, stupid question I know, but can you please post a link to the sleeves you got for the AP15s?
Just got them too and can't find any.. I prob just don't know what to look for

I think he just bought sleeving for the cables, it's pretty generic and fits any small cables. dazmode.com sells it and is Canadian :) Basically you will need a small tool, heatgun (lighter can be used...doesn't do a good job), sleeving and heatshrink. It takes a while the first time you do any work.

Yep that is what I did. I got mine from the same place as the fans and just got a little kit with the sleeving and the heatshrink. I also got black fan connectors so they would match my H100.
