I've got 7 80MM fans in my system now - which probably contributes to the noise.

Yeah, do you know what the sound level on them are ? Anything over 23 dBA is too loud for me.

You should hear my system, i have 6 46-DBA fans cooling my system. I suggest 120mm fans, since most of all 80mm fans are low-profile. If you dont know how to determine a good fan, then you probably have a bad one.

Sorry, lil bit off topic but, is there a way to check what brand the fans are that come with cases? cause i want to match up my led fans with some more but i want to get the same brand so the blue is the same.

In the second one there is no steel added, which makes it lighter, which makes it more expensive. Same thing goes with those zalman heatsinks. You can get on with all copper $50 or so, or get the one with copper/aluminum for $45.
me: in fact the san diego\'s pretty much hit the very top on games
friend: yeah

if you can spart 220 then get it cos its good from what i have heard but for me at least 220 on a case is way to much as you will probebly have to replace the fans anyway to get a more silent system
