LED OnBoard Lights!???? Question about noise?

I am looking for info on some LED OnBoard lights, which one makes the least amount of noise.

I'm looking at this light here by cineroid
Cineroid L2C-3K On-Camera LED Light (Tungsten) L2C-3K B&H Photo

and it seems like there is a fan on the back, but i'm worried about the amount of noise it will make.

Anyone have any experience with onboard lights that are quiet but powerful

thanks guys

Re: LED OnBoard Lights!???? Question about noise?

i have this version of the light
Cineroid L2C-3K5K On-Camera LED Light (Tungsten/Daylight)

the first one i got was defective and the light panel kept popping off, the replacement works great, very bright and light weight. The fan on mine has a Auto or manual selector for the fan, and the fan is very quiet.

The lights I use have power LED's not multiple leds and stay very cool so no fan is needed so they are dead silent and also a lot more compacy than the multiple lights. According to the specs they are "slug cooled" ..I accidentally left one on for nearly 2 hours in the case and it was warm but certainly not hot.

If you google "video light 5010" on eBay you will see what they look like!! Certainly have worked well for me and on a Sony FP battery I can run mine at wedding receptions virtually all night!!
