This is the first PSU I have seen that has been pre-modded.  Aside from the shiny exterior and 120mm clear fan, it also has a knob on the back side that controls the fan.

 


The smartest thing Fortran did when they decided to put a lighted controlled fan in a PSU was to select a 120mm fan. The reason is, that in order to move large volumes of air you either need a small fan moving at high RPM ( =noise) or a large surface area fan moving at a slow speed ( = quiet). I would guess that the fan at full speed is around 30 db/A since it is louder than a L1A Panaflo but quieter than my 35 db/a Sunon's.

 


Being a computer modder since 1997, I just had to take a look at what was in this PSU. Besides, there wasn't one of those "Warranty is Void if Broken" stickers on it :)

 


Here is what the fan looks like when turned on. I like the color of blue that the 8 LED's put out, it will match most blue CCFL's nicely.
