so the fan that got replaced isn't the same make/model is it?
that Kingwin is rated as a max 950rpms ...which isn't the fastest out there for sure, so maybe its a case of replacing a slow fan with another slow fan.
tho, i'd think you'd get more than high 500rpms out of it ...maybe not tho. and the Turbo setting doesn't give you much more than the Standard setting, eh?
just to compare ...i bought a few of these fans for my case ...
Coolermasters rated for a max of 2000rpms ...got them for $4.99 each at the time.
