It depends what you are doing mate. I use 600 RPM on my 240 rad (so 120s). They are inaudible. However, I am cooling a 8 core Xeon with a max TDP of 140w that can not be overclocked. Temps are good though, idle is usually around 30c but has jumped up 10c since the summer.

If you are running a CPU stock or a mild overclock then yeah, I would say they would be OK.

I know that the jump between running a fan on low and all out is only about 7c. So you trade off noise for temps.


If you don't like what I post don't read it.
