While with all those fans its never dead silent wich i never expectedit to be all my fans are controled by my 2 fan controlers.
So I would have to say it has 3 settings
quite hum all set to Minimum speed
Slight Purr all set to Half Speed (where I usualy keep it!)
and Mighty roar! (all set to Max While not super loud it could definatly get on your nerves after a while.)
The Venus 12 fan is quite loud at full speed but I can sit and watch my CPU temp drop from about 37C to 30C when its on High!
With all at half speed I run about
37c on the CPU
28c on the mother board
So all is quite cool and stable
the NV silencer is controled by the Video card and is almost dead silent even when running at max speed so its pretty negligable and seems to keep the main board cool as well.
