    I wonder that also, recently accidentally ordered a 5V one for my XeonD system. It works fine, but my expectation that it would be less noisy is not true - or its not pwm controlled after all, at least it never turns down. Have not delved deeper since the board is still on the bench and real life catched up...

    Wouldn't a 5V fan plugged into 12V just spin incredibly fast...until it either goes up in smoke or blows the bearing?

    @whitey - I have a broken (BIOS is flaky) X10SL7 if you need it for parts, testing, etc. Yours for the cost of shipping.

    Thanks for the offer, all seems calm on the home-front once I added the 40mm Noctua cooler, probably need to find a better way to attach but for now simply setting on top and blowing down is doing the trick, came down to my least desirable solution, which is more of a band-aid fix but I don't have time to mess with this anymore.

    Thanks all for the great input and rapid response!
