CLP0527 will keep CPU cool at very low 16dBA noise level (it should be quieter than Scythe 2100 at 33.67 dBA) and CLP0527 has impressive air flow at 38.9 CFM too (it's almost as much air flow as the massive Scythe 2100 model).......

Good stuff blue! I was looking at that one too! 38.9 CFM must be at the highest RPM.... Maybe one day I can get my hands on one and test it out. It's pretty nice looking too... Big Grin
Yes, it is 38.9 CFM at the highest RPM and it's better than Scythe 1100 (it's 31 CFM at the highest RPM). I installed a 527 on my friend i3 at the end of last year. I tried the full blast RPM, and it was still very quiet.....the fan on it is among the lowest dBA for a CPU cooler fan.....

Damnit eskro, that is a nice case, way better than the 100 with that big ugly fan on the side of it. I never saw this upgraded version of the case before now. Wish I'd known I was going to build a mobile system, I probably would have gone for this guy instead. Can't wait to see what you put in there!

HTPC 2 - AMD A6-3500, ASRock A75M-ITX, Kingston HyperX 4GB DDR3 1866, Patriot Torqx 2 32GB SSD
HTPC 3 - Intel Celeron 847, OpenELEC
RV HTPC - Intel i3-2120 Mini-ITX, 12TB Storage
