    The Delta fan still is the champion of the performance fans so far. No shocker there, as it still pushes more air than any of the fans I tested, however, there are some areas the delta loses in big time.

    1) Noise: The biggest downside to the delta is the fact it is one seriously loud mofo. It sounds more like a hair dryer than your normal computer. The Thermaltake fan next to it was silent.

    2) Power Requirements: The delta fan with its massive power requirements should not be plugged into a header on your motherboard, as it has burned out many of them for some unhappy users. The Thermaltake fan as well as the YS-Tech fans draw a little over half that much, and run no risk to your motherboard.

    Is the Thermaltake the best fan out there if you're after sheer cooling ability? Well, in my book? No. The delta beats it hands down, every day of the week. Not too many people would question that.

    However (you all knew this was coming) the delta fan has been rumored to have the innate ability to drive individuals insane thanks to the annoying high-pitched drone it produces. If I weren't absolutely batty already it'd probably have done it to me by now. Still, I like the fact that my computer isn't the loudest thing in my house when I've got the Thermaltake fan on it. I do believe my delta is going in my box of parts and filed in the "to be used for future testing" area.

    The conclusion: The Thermaltake fan isn't the best cooling of the bunch, but it gives you the best noise to cooling ratio on the planet so far. It comes close to the Delta, while still being quieter than the YS Tech fan we know as well.

    Special thanks to GigaHz at So-Trick Computers for providing an excellent fan to review!
