Considering the CFM to dB ratio on something like that... I may just have to buy an adapter for my current heatsink and put that on there.

The one thing that always turned me off to Panaflos was that most people sell them untailed. I would have no problem tailing them myself, but it is a hassle I can save myself from by buying a different fan.

I've been looking for that link :shock:

Didn't Coolermaster actually patent the rifle bearings?

Rifle bearings are quiet.. seem smoother too ...less vibration

Hybrid, are you a reviewer? You seem to get much stuff from CM... :cry:

Btw, the link is not in correct english, there are errors at some places... But you got the point, sleeve bearing is quiet, but last not as long as ball bearing. Ball bearing lasts longer, but makes more noise.

Panaflo uses some kind of sleeve bearing with some kindof oil which enables good heat dissipation. Thus, sleeve bearing can last longer while supporting faster fans.

Rifle bearing: I've never studied that kind of bearing before... Even though I got a CM white neon fan...

Then you've got about two or three other types. Btw, Globalwin has ceramic ball bearing: all the advantages of ball bearing and sleeve bearing...
