    I need to get some better fans than the pos "ultra super quiet" ones that don't move the air like I need. I'm thinkin a Thermaltake 8025 to replace my CPU fan or just getting three Antec or three Coolmax fans. The Antecs push 34 CFM @30 dbs while the Coolmax push 41 CFM @ 32 dbs. Any of you guys have experience with these fans?

    Thanks.

    When ur looking at the noise of them make sure u don't see anything like 25db IN SILENT MODE cuase then they're usually like 40db in fast mode lol.

    not sure about those particular fans, just look around and try to get a good noise-airflow compromise.
    My cpu fan i put in is an 80mm with blue leds, airflow 34cfm and noise level 30dba. best airflow fan i could find on tiger direct lol.

    I was going to get an adapter and replace it on my stock heatsink.

    With the stock heatsink and a fan adaptor, this is the one I use: http://www.antec-inc.com/us/pro_details_co...hp?ProdID=75001
