but if you are THAT concerned about the noise wouldn't you just go for a ninja?
No, for two reasons. Firstly, because the Mine is compatible with more motherboards than the Ninja+, itâ€™s just not a choice for some people. Secondly, itâ€™s a different product and has its own unique strengths. If the Mine offers good enough performance
for peoplesâ€™ needs, itâ€™s another option. Surely, thatâ€™s a good thing!
Yep, in my box, the intake Nexus fan is the loudest, then the case vibrations from the HDDs. The mine stock fan (thermally controlled by the bios) spends most of its time spinning under 900RPM, i.e. virtually silent due the other noise sources.
My X2 4200+ is always under 40C, I'm wondering if a fanless Ninja would do the job. But even without the fan, no way the Ninja would fit in my box.
