    There's a lot of posts in forums about silentx being optimistic if not downright false in their claims.

    this review offers an alternative view One reason that the IXP-54-09 is so quiet is that it barely moves any air.

    i'm with yate's (not the wine lodge)

    interesting. test reviews are generally positive, but user comments in forums such as this one are a bit more varied. many of them state silenx are a bit crap.

    so is the general view that yate loons are the dog's? if so, where in the UK can i get my hands on some good ones and which are the models to go for?

    I'm one of the guys who state it's downright lies. Their 14db fans (I had both 80mm and 120mm) are louder than the supposed 26db Aluminium fans they were supposed to replace.

    Not good on fan controllers either, quite happily stalling.

    Well i've never tried them cos of what i've read. I'm also pretty unique now in that i'd prefer having a decent quality higgh rev fan that i can just turn down if i want quiet. Bur a lot of people have been stung.

    @EtheAv8r have you tried them yet??

    I would be looking to get the 1300rpm fans as I don't believe the 220rpm ones would be that quiet...

    the nexus equivalent spin upto 1200rpm

    @2200 they'd be noisier but then you don't need to have them up that high, mine run idle @30% = 660 & are virtually silent
