yeah, actually, I just bought this for my woman's computer I built. I was very, very, very impressed with it. It kept the temps down in the 30's. It's quiet as can be too.

I dont know the actual specs on my Tornados but id say those things put out a **** load of air to. On the contrary it is uber loud. IDC how loud it is though so it dosent matter.

Hahah one time i accidentaly stuck a fan grill in my Smart Fan II while it was running and 2 of the blades came shooting out at me. It was really scary cause they put holes in my walls. Imagine if that would have hit my face!
