Nevermind- i was looking at S83 fans instead of the S84 fans which im wanting. The S83 is just a bulk package of cheaper fans, and I don't want that (more noisy).

Do you guys think there will be very much of a noticeable difference between the Powmax fans that I have and the Cooler Master fans I might get? Below are the specs for each:

Powmax Fans
Bearing: Sleeve
RPM: 2000 rpm
Air Flow: 21.5 cfm
Noise Level: 20.3 dba

Cooler Master Fans
Bearing Type: SuperFlo
Nominal Speed(RPM): 1400
Air Flow(CFM): 15.75
Noise(dBA): 13

Thanks

Man anything below 22 dba should be basically dead silent, so I don't know why you would sacrifice so much cfm to go down to 13 dba. That's why I like the thermaltake, 21dba and 28 cfm = quiet but moving some air.
