    Not directly yet but goin' on the few reviews of it around it doesn't seem like the bigger fan has helped any except in bein' noisier by far and much harder to fit (just like the V7's & V9's where the fan actually hinders ya use of the clip).

    I'm afraid that if ya lookin' for any significant improvement over the V7+ then look to the SLK800 equiped with jet engine. :devil win

    With your case ya unlikely to notice the noise over those other fans anyway, have ya had a hearin' test lately? :D

    I couldn't get 3 SF II's to work in an UNEEC case (except to make enough noise on low speed to annoy the neighbours, they rang the cops at mid speed). Thunder also actually runs 4C cooler case temps with 34cfm fans fitted to all 6 fan positions than what it could ever do with the SF II's.

    If that's viewed from either the top or botton then ya maybe should think again as this is the likely airflow. ;)
