I just bought 5 of them, although it sais 20dba they are extremely quiet and move tons of air, adding 4 of them to my side panel lowered my temps on almost everything by 5 - 10degrees.

if those stats on the hiper are right go for those they look good. dB is a log scale isn't it so 30db is actually double 20dB (i think) which basically means there is a lot of volume increase between the noctura and scythe.

Those silentX and not as quiet as they state, i was very disappointed when i purchased the 35mm one, as it was very 'whushy' noise wise.

For the price of the 35mm one, you could get almost 2 120mm noiseblocker fans which have a much better, low key noise signature and push around 35-40 cfm.

The best 35mm fan i've ever had was the one that came with my p180 case, that's gone now but i still kept the fan as it pushes a lot of air and is very quiet on medium or low setting.
