    I would probably get them one at a time each month as money is tight right now but for now stick with p12s

    loudness isn't the only factor with sound - the noctua are by your tests quieter on the dba scale but the sound they produce isn't to my liking.

    Ive had a lot of fans over the years and IMHO i cant find better than the Arctics for the price, sure the Noctua's are slightly better regarding noise but i cant justify the price difference. My system has P14's (and P12's fitted to my gfx), seriously quiet and even at full chat the hum is nice.

    Sorry I didn't see your reply. Lots of places not in stock. I had to pre-order and wait a few weeks.
    Only a few places do pre-orders for out of stock items, so that should help.
