I dont think the Corsairs like 5v. Im sure the QE's lowest is 7v.

If you watch the office tour video though youll see my fans in Orca run MEGA slow

Haha yeah I watched you prodding your fingers in lol

I don't know what it is (fan motor lottery or something :P) but my SP120 QEs are too loud for me on a single Corsair resistor, they don't seem anywhere near as quiet as the fans in Orca. I run all of my fans on a fan controller (don't hate me Tom), and they're a fair bit quieter than at 7V so that leads me to believe they're running at sub 7V (again, something I can test when I get a DMM).

I can try experimenting a bit

Edit: When I say they're quieter than they are at 7V, what I mean is they are quieter than on the resistor supplied by Corsair. I just have the impression that with the resistor they run at 7V for some reason. Yet again, something else I'll be able to find out
