I've heard good things about noctua. Might want to check them out.

CFM isn't everything broski.


Oh really?

Noise an issue? Not really. I would like to get an idea how loud they are though. Maybe I can find a video on them.


35db is very loud. My fans are 19db max, and while they're not loud, they're hardly silent.

Picked up 5 cougars (two 120, three 140) just a couple days ago when Newegg had the 20% off coupon code sale.

The 120's I'm trying in place of 2 Coolermaster's I had on my 212 EVO cpu cooler and the 140's are being used as case fans. (2 front intakes and 1 rear exhaust)

Running all of them off my motherboard set to auto and allowing for them to run at the lowest speed possible when idle they are very quite even with my case at roughly ear level 5 feet away.

I ran Prime95 and Valley to generate as much heat as I could and they barely had to go over 50% power to keep the temps in check. Mildly OC'd 4770k stayed in the 50's while my 780 GHz edition got up to 70ish.

They were pretty audible in an otherwise silent room but when I turned on my fan/ionizer they were drowned out.

Pretty happy with the lot so far.

Do you have bat ears? 35dB isn't loud at all. It's literally whisper-quiet. It's so quiet that it doesn't even register on my dB meter.

I have the 140mm Hyperborea and they are rated at 16db at max RPM... They are annoyingly loud at max rpm. I would think the bgears 120mm running at 2000 rpm is going to be real loud.

I see. I guess ultimately I need 5 fans but I don't think I'm only going to get 2. Ever since one of my case fans has died I only have 2 working fans. On case fan thats on the top and one that came with my Hyper 212+.

Do I have bat hearing? Hmmm... Well I don't know it is pretty good I'll say. I remember doing one of them sound tests things that people post on you tube. That does sound range in KHZ. I for got what the starting point was but it went all the way down to 1 and I could hear every single one. I don't know how accurate it was but that's all I can say about it.

Hmmm... Either someone is really deaf Or Andrew has ears of a bat then ha ha.

I wish my case could do 140MM but its too small. For a mid size tower this thing is pretty small.
