I have the 1150rpm and 800rpm Scythe Gentle Typhoon. I recommend the 800rpm version because i hear a high tone when i undervolt the 1150rpm with fanexpert 2.

I actually happened to salvage a slip stream from my neighborhoods junkpile room. The 800rpm slip stream was very silent indeed but i recommend the GT because they cool better at same sound levels as the slip stream.

What about this Nexus "Real Silent Basic Series"?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6835610006
It's only $12. Are they any good?

it's a virtual tie between the Real Silent and Slipstream for ultra-quiet.


I've got a Real Silent on my CPU heatsink (running at 35%), which I'm very happy with.
I was going to buy another Real Silent to use as an exhaust, but I might try a Slipstream after reading that. They're both pretty much the same price.

Good choice. I have the 800 slip stream and while i feal the gentle typhoon series outperforms it in airflow it is without a doubt very quiet.
