well imo, having a decent cooling system set up, rathe then haveing the BEST fan is better.

just make sure your case is cool, you have a decent cpu fan and a few fans for intake and exhaust

i only have a 92 mm fan on the read for exhaust and an 80 mm on the front for intake along with my cpu fan, and well i am down around 40

The Volcano 12 is probably the best fan out there for the money, but it's LOUD.
I argue with people on internet message boards.

I just bought one of those Coolermaster jet 7 fans. It's huge. I liked the way it looked... looks like a plane turbine lol. I don't know if it's worth the money i paid for it though... i haven't received it or hooked it up yet.
The only \"intuitive\" interface is the nipple. After that, it\'s all learned. ;)
