For me, they're all going to my fan controller, so I could care less about the tach, but it's always nice to know.

I'm going to use fan controller too, but it's not that bad if you can get complete fans and attach those pins by yourself. Someone just need to post a proper tutorial of how to attach the pin, I think it won't be so hard to do.

So I might as well ask here since it is kinda related to the groupbuy. Does anyone know/recommend a place where you can buy the 3 pin fan connectors in bulk at a low price? If they also carry cat5 jacks that would be a huge plus. biggrin.gif

^This

 

We should have been clearly informed before they started accepting payments. I'm not sure if there is anything that can be done now, other than get a refund if you really don't want the fans anymore. I'm holding on until we get more updates before i make a decision.

post #1766 of 2446
At this point, I really just want the fans. Considering the barebones and completes were still cheaper than any AP-15 you'll see out there, I don't see why there is all this moan and groan right when we're so close to getting them.

If you're really unhappy with what you're getting, just get the refund from admin, but to come here and complain about things won't make what is already manufactured and shipped any more to your liking than what you'll be getting. This isn't a store where you can complain about your "right" as a customer to receive what you were promised, this was a group buy and with that, there will always be complications.

Perhaps on performance pcs?

Pins 0.29$
Standard white 0.29$ (+0.5$ with pins if added here, which is 0.29$ above)
Black connector 0.39$ (+0.5$ with pins if added here, which is 0.29$ on the top link)


I have to say I have always been happy with performance pcs, and they have been kind to me in terms of service they have provided me smile.gif
They mig

Checked on sidewinder computers now

Pins 0.15$ EDIT: This is per piece, so it will cost 0.45$ for 3 of them.
White connectors 1-9 set = 0.2$ a piece 10+ = 0.15$ a piece

If you need 8, order 10, as that is cheaper and you get 10 instead smile.gif

And on watercooling uk

Phobya Fan Power Connector 3Pin female incl. 3 Pins - 5 pcs Black
£2.49 (~3.61$) ex. VAT
£2.99 (~4.72$) inc. VAT

So price divided by 5 would be
£0.5 (~0.79$) ex. VAT
£0.6 (~0.95$) inc. VAT

EDIT : A easy way to find these at a store of your choosing, is to search for "molex" or "molex pins"

While we're all speculating, I might as well jump into the fray. As far as fan models go, the pricing does, to me, make sense if I received the right fans and the completes are getting the 3-pin connector attached. In the original buy, before OCN got involved, it was stated that in order for the connectors to be attached, they would be shipped from Nidec to another company who would put the connectors on. While the cost of the parts is <$0.15 per fan, the labor would be significantly higher since there would be a person paid to put the connectors on (albeit with some fancy machine, I suppose), then people paid for administrative work as well. Add the cost of an additional step in shipping, and I'd say the extra $4 is accurate. This is, of course, assuming the plan there didn't change. When you think about it, having someone like me put connectors on manually would result in significantly higher prices than that. Assuming California minimum wage and an average 5 minute process per fan, it'd be about $0.70 per fan, plus materials, plus shipping to me, plus shipping to the buyer, which would likely come out to significantly higher than $4 per fan. Shipping is expensive frown.gif
Basically, I'm saying there was probably a mistake made with the barebones fans. Instead of an order for fans with only 2 wires but a connector attached, an order was made for fans with 3 wires but no connector. I don't necessarily like the mistake happening, but it happened and I, for one, am content. I'm also saying that the $4 additional charge for the completes seems reasonable should they arrive as advertised.
That being said, if it turns out I did receive the wrong fans, I'd be happy to flat out purchase these, so long as I get my original order as well.
Edit: One other thing to mention. Small chance of it, but maybe Nidec did us a solid by adding the tach wire since the fans were delayed for so long. Not very likely.

Makes sense, thanks!

Would someone have a link to a tutorial and links to parts we may need in order to put connectors on? I've never done it, so I'd like to learn. wink.gif
