Cooling 80 x 80 x 10 mm case fan... doesn't seem to exist?

Bought the Akasa. I had exceeding low expectations so maybe thats the reason I am pleasantly suprised.
At 0% PWMs they spin at 650 RPM and are basically silent. At load they aren't any louder than the stock 92mm GPU fans.
Wished they stop spinning at 0% PWM like the stock fans did, but since they are silent I don't mind and the idle GPU temps are now 27c instead of 57c.

I had the same experience with the Akasa 80x10 fans despite the shit talking about them. The others I tried at the time(NoiseBlockers and one other) both exhibited an annoying PWM buzz noise.

I'm very unimpressed with the 80x15 noideblockrrs. I found the 80x15 coolermaster fans much better but they come in about 16mm thick.

Yeah the other one, just checked were Silenx also ~16mm, gold color, and quiet on an LNA cable but 3-pin

At first I was hesitant about the Coolermaster because they were also 3pin instead of PWM, but motherboard control is so good these days I didn't find any issues setting the fan curve just how I wanted it.
