Ha... just as loud?? You gotta be smokin, It is silent...100%...I have three pc's built when these first came out no leaks at all. Now there are better units made these days but for 29 bucks if you wanna drop your overclocked temps by at least 15% or more these will do it.
I run one 955 and two 1060t Blacks Overclocked for my business/pleasure and they work like a charm besides the fact I paid $79.99 in 2010 right the before the two fan version came out so I had to jimmy rig my own push pull by adding a fan. No complaints here, I say go for it if you don't wanna break your wallet and are tired of having a black hole vortex drowning out your headphone Yanni session.
