    relatively quiet... The new 1U server I picked up for my CCTV / PBX system for the house is retarded loud. It has 8 of these bitches in it:

    :rofl: :rofl: It sounds like a damn jet is idling in my office closet.

    Looking for something that moves 7-15cfm and is quiet. 40 x 20mm will work just fine. Price doesn't really matter..

    I'd love to see a 120mm version of one of those.

    Normally I like fancy boutique-brand fans, but for long life, low noise, decent airflow, and small size, you can't go wrong with Sunon.

    yes, I know. It's like trying to have a conversation underneath a 737 as it's throttling up for takeoff.

    yea if you're building a server, need a new propeller on a small outboard motor, or you want to make your own blender, then sanyo denki is your man.
