Coolermaster Turbine Master 16 blade 120mm

Review at Kit Guru. Coolermaster claims 35cfm @ 800rpm/~14dBa. Too bad Kit Guru's noise floor is 20dBa. :D

This is another review http://www.vortez.co.uk/articles_pages/ ... iew,6.html that backs up that it is as quiet as Cooler Master claim.

I saw that review and dismissed it when I read:

"Due to the sound level meter only registering a db rating of 50db+"..."I will instead identify the distance at which the fan (running at 12v) produces a 50db reading. Once a reading is taken I will then identify the distances for the same decibel rating at 7v and again at 5v."

Maybe the reviewers' use of inverse square law is an excellent method...maybe not.

Another glowing review: http://www.rexware.fr/ (use Google French translation)

I don’t understand why on page 3, he claims the Turbine was tops for db/cfm ratio, when it’s clearly outdone by the GT-13. 41dB/58.5cfm v 40.5db/48.6cfm.

Linked on the home page is their best rated fans table, and the Turbine takes Gold for exhaust fans, ahead of GT-13 and NB-MF-S1.
