If you have a window, and replace the space with all delta fans pushing air outside, you would probably be suffocated within a hour!

I was really surprised by this too, but when you think of the huge differences in F1 car performance caused by minor additions in aerodynamic design, you start to understand how a few extra mm of plastic or a a few degrees of fin pitch can make a big, big difference.

I've had NF-P12 for about 2 years now and when i read your article i was disappointed with Noctuas performance so i wanted to give Silent Eagles a try.
I tested the airflow against my hands and legs(not that scientific but enough for me)
Noctua: Airflow was noticeable from 20 cm and the noise at 1300 RPM wasn't loud. After closing my case only thing i head was small sound of airflow
Silent Eagle: I didn't notice almost any airflow when testing the fan from 20 cm. About the noise, i was truly surprised how quiet the fan was. I couldn't hear the fan from 10 cm away. After closing the case i could only hear tiny tiny airflow but that was probably my GPU and CPU fan.
When Noctua NF-P12 was running at 900 RPM the Silent Eagle was quieter and probably had better airflow but when thinking of case with full of hot components my number one choice still remains as Noctua NF-P12.
Bottom line. If you really want a quiet PC and don't have that many hot components i truly recommend Silent Eagle 1000 but for noise-performance my choice still remains as Noctua NF-P12 and i feel the test wasn't accurate on Noctua NF-P12.
