The Yate Loon's seem to cool better than the TriCool's on low and are just as silent (probably even a little quieter). The one Scythe I have seems about the same as the Nexus 120, but unfortunately whines a little at full speed so I have to undervolt it so it is not annoying. I don't think the Scythe I have is the most popular ones they make, it is just the 120mm that came with the Ninja. I use it because the P180 blowhole fan is not installed by 4 screws but uses these slots that the Yate Loons and Nexus 120 won't fit into. The advantage of replacing the TriCool's was being able to plug my fans into the motherboard and control them by utility. But in reality since they are so quiet I just leave them full blast.
