I personally have never experienced a fan that was quiet enough for my liking at 1,000rpm although I'm happy to believe that if anyone can do it then Scythe can - the S-Flex D & E models were outstanding. I wasn't aware that they made a 4-pin PWM version of the Gentle Typhoon though - must check that out.
All the high speed versions of the Gentle Typhoon have the PWM circuitry, however most of them (strangely) are sold as 3-pin fans
