@ison 6" isn't necessary for that tent size, 5" will be fine if cost was an issue. We've the same size tent, my 5" fan for flowering had on 50% capacity & 4" intake 70% and no issues. Even during the 3 day heatwave only at 60%. And it vents out via 6 to 7 meters of ducting. Whilst extra ventilation capacity always welcome it's not needed especially growing under LED. Might be a different story under HPS.

It's pretty quiet. Mine is in loft and at low speed had put my ear to it to check working. They also do a 6" version.

Only thing that's noisy is cheap 4" intake fan from A****n. Certainly replace it with 4" version of above when finances permit :)  Best wishes mate :yep:

Im using a 6 inch hyper fan currently, haven’t used any other fan before so cant compare it to anything but its plenty quiet enough, can only hear it when I'm in the same room as the tent. Running at no more than 50% unless temps are crazy

it's more planning ahead really. the bigger the fan the lower speed it can be run so less racket, also today's exhaust is tomorrow's intake fan - onwards and upwards, ever onwards and upwards.
