NOOO not the Ultra Kaze. Damn thing is LOUD. I have 2 in my closet that I used to use for air coolers.

Gentle Typhoons are pricey but very worth it.

I can put one on my H50 and record how loud it is with just 1 Ultra Kaze. I can tell you with 2 if your house is quiet you can hear them clear on the other side. I use the standard Kaze fans. They around 2000RPM but the Gentle Typhoon fans are better but more expensive.

being new to computers when i put on my 2 extra 120mm fans i stipped 3 screws so bad i had to get a drill and destroy them till they fell out. the other 5 screws are badly chipped. i ended up and am currently using 3 partially screwed in screws to hold fan 1 in, and 2 screws to hold fan 2 in.

i might get that fan... but i dont want to screw up so badly again... if i do get that fan i am going to youtube before i do anything.
i was like WTF why are these fans missing screw holes!
