    im thinking of getting a vantec stealth 80mm case fan or two to replace my roaring sunons. has anybody used them, and if so what are your XPeriences with them? im not an overclocker...running at 1.6GHz on my AMD Athlon XP 1900+. case is at about 36 C right now. ive read a bunch of reviews on them, but the conclusions were mixed (mostly because a lot of them were on overclocking websites)

    i also thought of cutting the exaust part off my case (the part with the little holes in the back) and putting a fan grill there to cut back on the noise of the fan pushing air past the small holes. would that help?

    I just cut out my fan vent on the back of the case and airflow is 100% better with a grill instead :D

    I've got two vantec stealth 80mm in my case, and let me tell ya..those things are running pretty silent. Coupled with my Enermax Whisper ps, it's quiter than my Athlon 800 system that only has one fan! It's a good deal man.
