I'd agree with BAR. Especially when going non-cat, where the plan is to burn a little hotter, 3 cu.ft. is a LOT of stove. When I was looking at non-cat's, I was only considering 2.0 to 2.5 cu.ft. stoves, and my heat load is pretty high. If going non-cat, the PE Alderleas seem to have a lot of fans, as well as Jotul. Those are certainly the first two I'd be checking, if I were buying a non-cat.
