 I'll have to back-out unfortunately.2016 didn't exactly start well and I'm in the middle of some family medical emergencies. While I see this doesn't start till February, I don't think I will have any proper free time even up at that point. Sorry about that gents.
The list has always been kept up to date with more modern designs. There's no real point in recommending a 300w design that's 8 years old to someone when they can get a 400w 80+ Gold unit for a similar price that performs better. It's definitely magnitudes better than a Bestech though. The Seasonic is a solid little unit, just dated in terms of it's design. The Bestech on the other hand, is glorified trash they charge money for. 
 Both units are based on Seasonic's S12II platform. It's old and outdated by today's standards but for a budget replacement it should be just fine. While those OEM versions typically don't get reviews, you can get a good idea of what the ST version is like from this review of the S12II 330w.The ST version should be quieter than the SE but the only major difference between the two is the fan; 80mm vs 120mm. The big difference between the ST and the retail version is it...
 How to tell who made the fan? Easiest way is to read the label. Either UL (Underwriter Laboratories) code (E#######) will lead you to an OEM, an OEM model number is printed on the label, or the OEMs name is straight up on the label.In the case of this fan, the OEM's model number is on the label. While ID Cooling calls it the NO-12025K, you can clearly see HA1225L12F-Z. If you do a normal Google search for this, you'll find a fair decent amount of reviews of CPU coolers...
 I talked to some engineers in the past (not sure if I can say who) but in regards to coolers like that one; the bigger fan does not overpower the smaller one due to the fact that the heatsinks fins are not bent-in on the sides so there are open air channels which allow excess air to either enter or exit from depending on the configuration.  On a radiator, you have closed air channels which cause both fans to feed into one another. 
Hello Folks,   It's that time again, and we're looking for some dedicated folks to help out the F@H team once more. While this is not an easy position to take up, we'd more than love to see a show of hands for some participants who are willing to put for the time to make our team one of the best in the world.    For a brief summary, the new Folding @ Home editor is here to:    Help Run Foldathons. Update Existing Folding Guides (or create new ones in the event of...
 Those GELID's are nice fans, I generally like the Wing 12's. My recommendations for them just go based on the price. Given AUS's pricing, they're not bad value.  As for Faster vs Slower; it all depends on the fan in question. In general you don't want to do this with 2BB fans as they make obtuse noise at lower RPMs (like GT AP15's get clicky at 500-700 RPM.)  Like wise, some fans just get more sporadic and loose balance at lower speeds (as they're optimized for faster...
 Shady business as well. Though I more blame the system than those who exploit it.   Silent Wings 2 fans are good for low obstruction use. The HR02 Macho would be a good example of that, as it has a low FPI (11-13 I think), as well as large surface area (so benefit from the extra airflow), and an optimization for airflow noise (so it doesn't hiss or make any obtuse extra noise.)  The TY140 should fit on the HR02 Macho, as it fits on the MACHO RevA as well as the original...
 I believe so yes, and it is patented in China for sure.Also, Ultra patented modular cables. Welcome to the US Patent system. Non-fixed cables have been on items for ages but on computer power supplies they were the first to think up to patent it. So they make money off ever modular unit sold.
I've got enough fans to make a hovercraft.
