    Delta Fans

    I was gonna buy one of these (80mm), thinking they can't be as noisy as everybody makes out....then I heard this....

    I've got a couple of 60mm deltas - they are deafening - iirc one of em kills mobo headers as it draws quite a bit of powah 8k rpm as well

    I've got 2 of those Deltas (the one on the heatsink) - they've never been put to a practical use. They are v. v. loud and you feel fear holding one while it's on.... not to be messed with.

    I love my delta 60mm.

    It makes hairdryers sound weak. Luckily I have it on a fan controller...

    I still hav an 80mm Focussed Flow Delta. That was mad loud, but most effective with an SLK800. Way to noisy to be practical.

    A M8 uses a few Deltas - they fry fan bays so he had to make his own (they pull like 1.4Amps). They are insainley loud, funny how they come with fan guards I think they'd take your finger off
