    Quick question re: the reviews...

    Do you run the CPU cooler fans (either PWM fans or with CPU temp DC control via m/b) with the CPU at full load @ stock to see just what speed the fan(s) get to, and therefore the noise level?

    The reason I ask is that with my new Noctua Chromax 120mm fans push/pull PWM controlled on an H55, they never get to full speed with my (admittedly low TDP) CPU under full load therefore they are absolutely silent.

    I wondering if this is a part of the test that may be missing, it would show the temperature, fan speed and noise in a "normal" usage scenario.

    Running fans at full speed when they may not actually need to may give a misleading impression, especially regarding noise (my favourrite hobby-horse).

    Thoughts?
