Well, I've had it with my Monsoon II TEC. I cannot have a quiet PC no matter what I do thanks to this thing. Plus, according to reviews, there are cooler air cooled CPU coolers on the market. So, I've given up on it. I'm about to sell the thing for about $70-$100.
I've just placed an order for a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme. Lets see how this thing does when I get it in a few days.
BTW, should I order another fan as well? I already have an antec LED fan on the side panel of my case, and I was just planning on pulling that one and using it. Suggestions appreciated!
