I'm always looking to get better cooling and squash noise. I had to do something about my case and the little fan noise that was left...I also had to be rid of the damned Silverstone 92mm I had doing vid cooling duty which has a most annoying sound(imo). I switched to dual 80mm fans on the vid and added sound absorbing material to the case, plus some snip, snip on the fan grates its now very hushed. Vid core temps are about 1-2C lower with the fans on low over the single.

Great that it's less noise and cooler, but I hate what computer cooling has come to. Air cooling at least.

I'd hate to back to liquid....I'm close but can't bring myself to do it.. heat is holding my CPU clocks back atm,
As for this dualie fan setup I'm just did some load testing and its maxing around 56C and soooo quiet :D
