    A man's computer SHOULD be loud!

    If I wanted a cute, timid and meek little computer, I'd get a Crapintosh!

    I find my Delta's voice to be rather soothing and reassuring

    Does anyone know how it compares to the 27.2cfm YS-TECH fan in terms of noise.

    I can't stand the racket of the YS-Tech that I'm currently using.

    Might go for a FOP-1 sometime.

    That YS tech is quite a bit quieter than the Delta so you would be not be happy with one

    These things are so loud that people in my house always complain when I leave the door to my room open, and sometimes I have to shut down my PC just to understand what people are saying on the phone . Yet the sound never really bothered me personally somehow...

    I have 3 Delta 38s running! 1 on the cpu, & 2 cut in the side for blow holes, a total of 8 fans running, the sweet sound of a 3HP vacuum cleaner! hehe! It will give you a headache after 2 hrs of UT, but 23-35*c looks nice.

    At first I thought this fan was loud, but after adding 10 other fans to my Inwin Q500a I couldnt hear it over everything else.

    Since I moved to the Lian-Li PC-60, I am notcing this fan again. I just bought 3 more at a computer show for $10 a piece (couldn't pass up this deal).

    I think I will try to mod them to run at 7V and see what kind of flo they produce.

    I don't mind constant, unchanging sounds, even if they're quite loud. I've got a BLORB, 80mm suckhole, 80mm blowhole, FOP32-1, PSU and KT7-RAID fan all running and it doesn't bother me (I admit though, quite a modest setup by HWC standards). The thing that really pisses me off is when fans start whining:

    "Oooo... Oooo... Oooo... Ooor... Oorr... Aorr... Aorr... Arrr... Arrr... Arrg... Arrg... Argg... Argg... Argh... Argh... ARGH!... ARGH!... ARGH!... ARGH!"

    Time for some oil.

    MuFu.

    P.S. 'Scuse me if I got a bit carried away with the Oooh's and "Aaahh's.
