If it's the right fan, great. If not, rather than leave negative feedback, have a conversation with the "power seller." If he made a mistake, perhaps he'll correct it.

Specs are not all the same. If a brand seller claims his fans do x rpm and yours does x-y rpm, your vendor will not know about that. But if the vendor sells you a fan whose size he can measure, and it's the wrong size, that's another matter. It's his responsibility to get it right.

But then there is the diagonal issue. Square frame fans are measured by the sides of their frames. But this is a round fan. And even if you measure between the little ears, it's not 14 inches.

But in the end, if the fan fits, wear it. biggrin.gif

yes, the fan seems to fit well, so you are correct and I will keep it, but it's still not what I paid for frown.gif

I agree, do not leave negative feedback for the seller. I would blame Rexflo for the issue.

However, I disagree that if the vendor can measure the size, then he should be at fault. If Rexflo claims this fan is 360mm, then the seller is going to and should sell it as a 360mm fan. Don't shoot the messenger! frown.gif If the messenger sells it as a 300mm, then a different customer might try looking for 300mm Reflexo fan reviews on Google for reviews and find nothing or a review of a different fan.

You should write to the Ebayer and Reflexo about your issue. Hopefully, they will compensate you in one way or another.

I think this thread is enough, when you google "Rexflo 360mm fan" this now shows up as the first link. This alone will warn potential customers that their 360mm fans are not 360mm as they claim.

Sorry about the major bump, found this via Google search, and I tried contacting OP through PM regarding a cabinet like this and a similar fan over a week ago, with no response yet... Hoping to get his attention now!
