Anyone familiar with this fan?
From this websiteThe TTC-D6TBA utilizes a 60mm fan that produces sparing amounts of noise.

I just read the review. I'm not impressed, but if one upgraded the fan to an 80mm (looks like one could be retrofited) it might cool better.
Also I would lapp it to remove the metal finish on the bottom, expose the aluminum to improve the thermal transfer.
This hs would probably be great if it did not have the chrome. That adds an extra thermal junction causing more thermal resistance.

I agree. It doesn't look to good to me. If you want quiet without too much modding I recommend the Taisol with the "slim 60mm fan" I have one before the copper insert came out and am very happy with it.Nope, I refuse to have a signature

That, or a volcano 7 would be a good choice, they are pretty quiet, anything that utilizes an 80mm fan will give you good performance/noise ratio

What?? I can't hear you over the roar in this room..
I just want a fan that's quiet that I don't have to rewire to make it that way.. (trust me, it's better like that ) I don't want to lap the heatsink, I'd prolly ruin one of my best nail files..
(hey you can get some with really fine grit now adays.. )
I'm also leary of fans since the only brand name I've ever owned tooka **** (hee hee had to moderate myself) and may have burned up my board.. verdicts still out. (OK I don't want to face it, it's still in a drawer under a shroud, I'm pretending it's just sleeping.. it looks so peacfull )"Sometimes life is just what we make it."
