Default Oh yeah!!!

I just ordered one of these bad boys: Vantec Tornado ( 5700 rpm, 84CFM, 55dBA)

I found a video of some guy comparing different case fans....... He shows the vantec tornado as the last example..

Ok I got it today!!!

I give it 9.9/10

The only reason it is 9.9 is because it is sooo damn loud. But hey when you get really good temps, you cant complain.......

Yeah, lol, I have heard that those things are loud.

How are you using it, on a HS or as a case fan? What are temp results?

I should just say screw it and strap on on my Tower 112 and see what it does

I have it in as a case fan. I dropped at least 5c on my HD temp. My video card ram modules feel cool, and my cpu used to max out at a temp of around 56c, now it only maxs out at around 53c. And it used to idle at 40c, now it idles around 35c.

I think that it would be more effective if I put it on the case behind the cpu, rather than on the side cover...
