wait... do u want the best one to cool your system, or the quietest!! Pick one, because the Scythe S-Flex isn't the quietest thing around and its a good cooler (I'm nto saying its loud, but its like a little less that average)

well i was looking around and found the scythe slip streams, 1200rpm is only 24dBA which is less than some of the 800s i saw. but im looking for a balance of performance and noise.

However theres not much better out there and the sagging went away when I put some more supports under the board.

I'm gonna get a Blue Orb II

They are a pretty good cooler for a decent price and almost noiseless

You can have my TRUE when you pry it from my cold dead hand. The scythe s-flex fans are pretty quiet when they are inside the case. Using them as case fans, is a different story.
