    Can u guys recommend quiet case fans, one for intake and another for venting? I currently have my 1.8 running at 2.25 with temps ranging from 28 to 42C. But summer is fast approaching and frankly..I feel the "Need for MORE Speed!"

    Panaflo L1A, if you search well enough they can be found for as low as $2.50 each.

    Another option would be to get an enermax adjustable rpm fan.

    Or buy a rheostat at radio shack for $4 and hook it inline with the negative wire of a fan to manually adjust the RPM.

    With my 120mm fan, the difference is 6db from highest to lowest rpm.

    I've got 2- 120mm and 2-80mm Panaflos along with the Enermax whisper power supply and my system is almost silent.
