    personally, XP120 gives you the best balance between noise (quiet) and performance (top-class).

    I never trusted TT's figure. they are always off..

    but most importantly, what processor are you running now?

    I love my XP-120... :thumb:

    Unfortunately, it ain't compatible with K7... :( It'll prolly crush the core even if it could... :p
