Not everyone needs the ultimate in cooling, nor do all cases have room for the large tower-type coolers. For those looking for excellent, low-noise cooling in a more compact design, there is the Noctua NH-U9B Special Edition SE 2 - http://www.overclock...ctua_nhu9b_se2/

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz / ASUS P5Q Deluxe / Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB PC2-9600 DDR2-1200MHz / 2x Seagate ST3160827AS 160GB RAID 1 / Seagate ST31000340AS 1TB
Corsair TX750W / Sapphire HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 / SilverStone TJ05 / Scythe Zipang 140mm CPU Cooler / ASUS VH202T-P 20" widescreen monitor (x2) / XP Pro SP 3

Really nice. But i think it`s a bit overpriced. NH D14 it`s Noctua`s king, but this one priced around 40-45$ i think it would have been much better.

how does the ulna work?

It is just a resistor which forces than fan to run at a lower voltage and hence lower speed and lower noise. I think it drops it from 12v to 5 or 6V I forget.

I have this exact cooler but have never actually used it but I have used the fans to mod an intel stock cooler for a stealth mod htpc. I also made use of several other noctura fans all with ulna adapters and I have great temps and very very quite operation even with highly restrictive (>50%) grills.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:
