Modder? Watercooling junkie? Performance enthusiast? Silence freak? Look no further!

Summary: With the watercooled system that I have, I needed some fans that were silent, high performance, and able to be disassembled for painting.These fans fit all three criteria. I initially opted for the Noctua PPC fans, but $30 per fan was slightly out of my price range.
Summary: This is awesome and still running perfectly. I bought this long ago to install in a Visual FX computer that I built. I have no regrets what so ever in getting the Typhoon. Note: I have it connected to a fan controller for when I need absolute silence.
Summary: I tried MANY different fans attempting to achieve adequate cooling at a noise level I could tolerate and the Scythe Gentle Typhoons have been the best. The only other fans that came close were Yate Loon and Nexus Real Silent (which are really just rebadged Yate Loons at lower RPMs) but those are...
Summary: I bought this fan in hopes that it would quiet down my computer due to a very noisy fan installed on its CPU water cooler. My computer sounded like a big hair dryer prior to installing the Scythe fan. The fan turns at a low 1150 rpm, but is almost silent.
Summary: There are faster turning models from this manufacturer. They are hard to get. This turns 1160 RPM at 12VDC, unobstructed. About the same as Noctua NF-P12 in air throughput at the same back-pressure and a little quieter than the already quiet P12. I would buy the 1850 RPM model if I could get it.
Summary: I have 2 of these fans, one runs at 1150rpm, and the other at 1180rpm, averagely. They are quiet, but seem to blow a little less air than the so-darn-noisy 120mm back fan I pulled out of my Sonata Antec III Quiet case. Because of that, I decided to put one in the back & one in the front.
