Thanks Slaymate...that will work just fine. Quite abit of air movement and not too noisy , I guess....tower is on floor so I am really not worried much about noise.

patonb.....yeah I know about those kind of fan controllers, but I hate to put that in when it is really not needed......the fan can run at full speed all the time and that will be just fine by me.....thanks for the input.

I wouldn't take manufacturer ratings with very much truth... often their rated DBA is quite a bit lower than what it really is... but I guess that can apply to almost everything, lol.

Sycthe makes good fans though.

I got my 120mm fan installed on the side of my case......I played about 3 hours of CoD MW2 and my cards were at about 62 & 64 C......I am pretty happy with that.
