My thermaltake fans are noisy the one on the side is had it too.
The 2 120mm fans are loud. They are meant to be 21db but I turn down my cpu fan to the lowest and its 21db take the 2 120mm offline and I can barely hear the cpu fan put the 2 120mm fans back on that are meant to be 21db and its very loud..

Now I was looking at controllers but theirs nothing much around for molex power connectors seems to mostly for 3 pin.

Well anyway anyone used these http://www.silverstonetek.com/products-fm121.htm' ">http://www.silverstonetek.com/products-fm121.htm
Think they will do what I want and I can turn them up a bit in the day and have them at the lowest speed at night.

it is still just a fan though... not sure how good they are really but they look expensive. the $5 masscool fans on newegg are next to the same thing. i have one in my intake fan, hooked up to my motherboard so it auto-regulates. quiet on low, but moves 100cfm+ on high. it isnt that much louder than those at 45db.

yes they are expensive $40 fan a fan /mad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='mad.gif' /> but if it means I will have a quite computer it would be better. I can't have it hooked up how you do, and no fan is not a option as my video card doesn’t have a fan, with the 120mms fan going it idles at 37c with out fans goes up to 66c and then 1 run of the css benchmark takes it to 81c. Now if I started gaming in bf2 for a bit how would my temps go I don’t want to know. I do know that with out any fans after the css benchmark 30mis later temps were still like 77c. With my fans temp when gaming is about 64c.

buy a controller
so cheap

wait, your board supports auto! if you hook it to the board, you can select (well, for only one fan) it to spin up to full only if it gets hot near the pwmic.

but id just get a controller, and a couple of those masscool fans.
or panaflows. they are a lot better.

youre the one talking about spending $40 on fans!

EACH!

just get a 4-3pin adapter. hook all the fans to the 4pin end, and adapt only one connector. and then use a 3-pin controller.

Yes I wanted to see your reaction and it was what I thought it would be...

Those 4-pin to 3-pin adapters are very cheap, now with the controllers I noticed some only go from 7V to 12V the ones that cost a bit more go from 5-12V.

How much of a reduction in noise and speed would running at 7V provide ?

just think of it as less power to the fan, lower rpm
thats all i can say
it depends on how loud the fan is at X00 rpm

Well there at 2000RPM ment to be 21bd but maybe aroud 25-28db, so what do you think 7volts would do? I know 5v would have to be quiet.
