    Pink Fans on both of mine were perfectly quiet.. obviously varies quite a lot .

    I'd pay the extra for something better really dp7641, I only have the Q-Tec 550w in my tv-box, which is not overly important. Antec & Enermax would be a good place to start .

    Agreed, I'm running 3hdds an xp2500+ oc to 3200+ @ 1.675V, 2cd roms, a G4ti 4200 all on an Asus A7N8X deluxe board.

    Changed the fans to silent YS-Tech ones and I've never had a single problem.

    I own a PC that changes regularly, so I don't bother putting anything in here...

    I've got one and blew it from an mistake of my own (connecting a floppy drive power connector while the PC was on, oh it was the wrong way round too)

    It just wouldnt not work.

    I dont think it does vary its just peoples perception of it - i bet the tollerable people are delta fans people too

    Definitely should have added an option:

    Had one and it died/melted/spontaneously combusted/blew up some part of my computer/blew up my entire computer/made my system more unstable than a lemming carrying the eiffel tower upside down on it's back/maimed my dog/killed my granny/destroyed a small country and I'll bitch about them on these forums forever.

    Just no.5 for me and I know 3 other people with identical experiences - when your LED fans flicker all the time, it's a good indication that something is wrong. Actually got mine out of the cupboard this week - needed a fan grill . Admittedly it was fairly quiet, but not as quiet as my Antec.

    If you've got one and it's working - then all well and good - I just believe that the tolerance on these devices is very low (i.e. quite a lot are substandard, though others may be OK)

    Had one running my old AMD rig - 2hdd, 2 dvd, rad 9500 pro abit nf7 etc and had no problems at all

    Changed the internal fans for ceramic bearing led fans and looked good too.

    I've had one for 6 months no probs. at all.
    I changed the fans for evercools to cut down noise/increase airflow and it runs my system fine xp1800+ @ 1.7v, RAM @ 2.9v, nforce2 mobo, AiW gfx, 3xscsi hdd, 1x ide hdd and 2 optical drives, 6 case fans + other stuff, quite impressive for the money imo.
