    This is what happens when I set those Silverstones to run at full blast (everything else is same):Attachment 2643

    For me the 4-5 degrees temp decrease isn't worth all that noise.

    @mm67
    Thanks for posting your temperature results.
    Having a top tier cpu cooler and quality fans certainly helps.
    There is no substitute for having an excellent cooling solution using quality components and a very good computer case and fan setup.

    In my earlier post, I should have said that I'm using the Scythe S-Flex 1600 rpm fans, not the 1200 rpm fans. These 1600 rpm fans are rated at 63.7 cfm and I run them at 1300 rpm for near silent operation.

    I do like these Silverstone's, I was previously using 2* Noctua NF-P12 fans, these push about some amount of air at 1100 rpm than than Noctua's at full blast and are as silent at that speed. Of course it also helps that I have one 1900 rpm 120 mm Scythe Slip Stream as intake at top optical drive bays and an other as an exhaust fan behind cpu cooler. Those thing are also capable of pushing 110 CFM, no lack of fresh air to cpu cooler.

    A very tempting solution but I have to make sure it fits. I have a case fan in the side and it clips in. Even if I remove it the clip is still there, and I am not willing to break it off for a cooler. Also, are there any good LED fans that will fit this thing? I already gave up the LEDs on the RAM when I switched it, (a fair trade) giving up the LEDs on the CNPS 9700 would make the case window about worthless.

    Something like this might be usable, but do note that those have sleeve bearings, you shouldn't try to mount those vertically.

    I'll probably avoid the sleeve bearings. How does this look as far as having enough room?

    From the Zalman website, your CNPS9700 LED dimensions are 90(L) x 124(W) x 142(H) mm.
    The Megahalems height is about 161mm from the top of the cpu, and it looks like it will be 19mm (3/4") taller.

    It's not clear from the CNPS9700 user manual if the 142mm height is from the top of the motherboard or from the top of the cpu.
    If the height is measured from the top of the motherboard, it looks like the overall height difference would be closer to 25mm (1").
    Note, your current cooler has a 110mm fan, but it looks like the fins are about 1/4" thick at the top of the cooler.

    My preference is to use fans with a fluid dynamic bearings (FDB), as these setups have the longest life and are quieter.

    My understanding is that sleeve bearing fans have the longest life when mounted in a vertical position, not horizontal.
    Information on the web has contradictory information in the vertical versus horizontal mounting position for sleeve bearing fans.

    FWIW, I've used four AeroCool 1000 rpm 140mm sleeve bearing fans in my computer case for nearly 2 years. Two fans are mounted vertically in my computer case and two fans are mounted horizontally in the top of my case. So far, no problem with any of these fans with increased noise and/or vibration.

    I've use 6 of the Scythe S-Flex (FDB bearing)1600 rpm fans in both of my systems for over 2 years, where 4 of them are mounted horizontally on my GeminII cpu coolers and 2 of the fans are mounted vertically. These fans are rated with a MTBF = 150,000 hours, three times as long as most ball bearing fans. Most sleeve bearing fans are only rated for 30,000 hours.

    The dimensions on Newegg for the Megahalems is 130 x 74 x 158.7 mm. I think it will fit inside the case. I think I have about an inch of clearance between the 9700 and the door (hard to measure, can't get my hand in there with it closed). It looks like it will clear my side fan, not a lot of difference between 124 mm and 130. That is without fans though. Now I have to wonder if it will fit with a Mushkin Ascent module in the first RAM slot. What width fan are people using with these? I have checked out some more reviews of this cooler and it looks hard to beat.
