CoolerMaster 80mm fan: SAF-S84-E1. Is this a quite fan?

Has anybody has any experience with this Coolermaster fan?

I have a HTPC that I put in my living room. It also function as my file server (total 6 HDs)

I am using Antec CS600B for the casing. The current generic 80mm fans I am using is so loud that drives me nuts.

I am planning to put a 4 (or 2) of this fan inside the case but since no local retailer has it (read: Fry's), I can't test them and make sure it's quite before I but them online (Newegg)

I would try to get some of these - ... 12-blk.htm
See if you can get a discount for buying 10 instead of 25. I've never listened to the coolermaster 80mm but the 120mm are good, but I would at least email tekgems or you can pm them from this site. They have a user name - tekgems.

You could aslo consider this fan at newegg - ... 6835180041

I bought 3 of em for my new case, and 2 of them have clicking bearings. I'm not impressed, and I'd recommend just getting good fans and undervolting them to the same speed.

Looks like those panaflos you linked FG have RPM sensing do they not?

No, I don't think those do.

I'm also looking at getting a few of these as they're listed as (13 db) instead of the Panaflo (21 db). Right now I'm using the stock AMD HSF for my XP1800 and looking at using one on my large HS that accepts 80mm fans and replacing the PSU fan along with placing one in the case rear position.

I don't have a heat problem, just noise and trying to reduce things even further as the damn things in my bedroom. :roll:
