Let me start by saying that I am very inpressed with Newegg.com. Fast and reliable. I ordered a new 90mm fan for the blowhole on my computer. It is a Thermaltake with blue led lights. It comes with adjustable control, but I plugged it straight into the 12v plug. OMG! This fan is so loud! I have 5 80mm fans and this single fan is louder than all those together! Woo! I am going to see if I can get the control to reach down to a empty pci slot and turn this thing down. Yes, it moves a lot of air, but good grief! You can feel air moving about 18 inches above my computer and hear it in the living room, which is about 15 to 20 feet away. LOL I am impressed with both Newegg and Thermaltake, however. Here is the fan that I bought...

Newegg is great. I have delt with them for years now. I have had mobo's die and returned for an RMA. I have it back within 2 weeks!

Okay, installed the manual control and turned it down about halfway, just under the noise. Sounds like the rest of my fans now...man that was loud! LOL

Yes I got a 120MM TT fan from newegg and that thing is even louder (if you can imagine or not). I personally don't care about noise so I'm very happy about the temperature diference it made for my case. And, almost a 10 degree drop for the GPU. Good luck with the fan and temps.

Newegg is #1 in my book.
Used them for years and never a problem.
