What is more importand for you? Noise or CFM? If you need something quiet look for the lower dB or sone. I think AKASA has 80mm fans with 16dB. But if you need something with high air flow look the CFM to be the highest.


I need for something in between ..
better CFM than the currant fans I have .. but not so loud .. I dont wanna have a airport in my case ;)

In my opinion the Thermaltake kit is good since the fans have good CFM and there is also the regulator just in case of noise.

then a regulator would help you on this.
Just have on mind that a regulator will reduse the maximum rotation of a fan by 200rpm approximately, than if you have the same fan without the regulator, connected on the board. For me this is not an issue.


well .. I will check some fans abit more until I will actually go and buy 80mm fans .. ;)

For the noise there is the regulator, so you can reduse the rpm for a little.

One problem with many case fans, if the noise is measured in the clear, it will be quite a bit worse if mounted to a punched grille with only around 50% freedom - anyone that wants quiet and airflow needs to dremel the punched grille out and use a wire finger guard instead  ... don't even THINK of using a decorative grille, as they can be just as bad.
