Default Re: Noctua fan fans.

I own 2 GTs, they are most definitely not quieter at 100%.
The GTs push more air for sure, but they also run 600RPM faster and that's to be expected. Under radiator strain at 100% they make a slight whirring noise and on a case with a regular air holes for a grille they are slightly audible. My Noctua fans on the other hand are inaudible in either situation. Take note I use P12s over F12s. If I had a dead silent room I could do some proper testing in I would dig out the DB meter and show that you'd find the GTs to be 5-7db over the P12s @ 100%. I know you said like speeds, but the only fans I ever limit are noisy ones like my Scythe Kaze fans or my TT Smart Fan 2. Both of which are still noisy on 5v :|
