    AS I said, out of those choices on the list, Thermalright makes THE best product. THAT IS NOT a preference, that is a fact. Don't like it? Then stick to your thermaltake and don't talk to me again.
    Id like some of that too :D

    Anyway, after he said what he was looking for (Good HSF under 30dbA thats afforadble) I'd have to say thermaltake is the way to go on this Soulburner : peace2:

    Thats fine, but he only said that after about 10 posts had already been submitted. If he really wanted something affordable, and under 30dba, several of those choices should not have been on the poll.

    Aolgar, let this be a lesson learned the hard way. Don't leave things open like that, rather, say you wanted less than 30dB and lots of airflow. When you specify, it keeps people like soulburner from starting into the brandname wars. Unfortunately, people are always going to fight for their favorite product, so if you specify, maybe you can get an answer instead of an argument :thumb: . Good luck with your FireStar, and don't let this thread reflect the entire community of tweaktown, : peace2: Mista K6

    I put mine to sleep because its next to my bed and I can't sleep with it. When I get up in the morning I hit the power button and it comes on and its already at the desktop, no booting needed. Its really handy. You should try it if you don't like listening to loud fans at night.

    Heh, I used to sleep thourgh a Volcano 7+ on high, and a Coolermaster HHC-001 (60mm @ 7500rpm) but those have been gotten rid of, and sleeping through the hum of the stock intel HSF and 30db fans is simple for me :)

    :wow: :wow: :wow:

    I always shut mine down at night, even with the fan controllers, I dont like the wind noise going through it. Starting up is no prob, I get to my desktop in 12 sec (heh heh, yah, I timed it :D ). : peace2: Mista K6
