    I just read the X-Dream SE review here and it sounds like a mighty little HSF, now I am wondering, does the Volcano 7+ out perform it, or is the X-Dream SE the one to buy?

    As do I, but alas, it was given away in a LAN event that was held some time back.

    Bro....

    As far as I'm concerned the Volcano 7+ is the Sheezey!!!!:D I have a POS old case, which BTW I'll be upgrading soon to a Thermaltake case, and the Volcano 7+ keeps my CPU sub 40C. Now, I'm talking I have one case intake fan that runs at 2100 RPMs.... So, you go figure, the TT is the Top Dog.

    Oh, and how do you get your signature all centered nice like?

    Over here in Aussieland there's nothing that will beat the 7+ in the price/performance/low noise arena which is why I continually use them. :devil win

    Due to the size of the fan on the 11 makes it hard to fit and remove plus the noise from that SMART FAN II is LOUD though they don't seem to cool much better than the 7+ (if at all). The 7+ is rated at 49cfm max speed and I only use medium so what are ya goin' to do with 75cfm?

    I got 3 Vol7+.
    All are running on overclocked CPUs and running SETI all the time. All run below 43C!
