I doubt there are many GT-2150C owners who have the crimper and materials needed, or would have used the fans as an excuse to get them, that is happy paying an extra $4/fan when they could have done it themselves. If we had known the BB's had the tach, but no connector, then It would have taken much longer to fill the Completes quota, if they didn't just cancel it. And there would have likely been much more BB's and totals fans ordered. But I know It's probably too late to do anything now, and it would have only been >$35 cheaper for me when all is said and done.

For now I will wonder what OCN will do with the refunded fans...

jealoussmiley.gif

tell me about it.
we discussed this a while back when we originally learned the 'bare bone' fans came with the tach wire.
i know i was (still am) annoyed as i bought 8 'completes'. could of saved 30 bucks or bought 3 1/2 more fans with the $104USD spent on the 'completes'
other than getting cheaper/or extra fans, would of gotten the fans a lot sooner too.
would also been a non issue on the plugs too. have a MDPC-X crimper that i used to sleeve my PSU(s).
actually having the fans without the plugs would have been easier to sleeve now i think about it. depinning can be a little tricky on some fan plugs.

anyway, what's done is done. just hope when i do finally get my 'completes', i don't end up with any duds. don't think RMA'ing will be an option.
tell you what, if i do end up with a broken fan or two, i'll graduate from 'annoyed' to 'super-pissed'.

I don't know where in the thread I read it (not looking in 200+ pages to figure it out) but I did read on this thread before I paid (early last summer) that the barebones were coming without connectors.

I can't believe that we got a freebee (tach wire on barebones) and that makes some of you unhappy!
Tell you what, google the AP-15 or any other GT fans and get a price on them. That should make you feel a lot better for paying 13$ for a GT you simply can not get anywhere on the market.

I bought 25 barebones and 12 completes ..... do I wish I had bought all barebones? Not really because back then NOBODY knew they would have a tach.

A lot of things went wrong with this group buy, but at least one thing came out positive : some of us got a free tach wire! .................... and others will get exactly what they paid for. How is that bad?

Yes, it has been told that BB came without connectors, and yes, pretty silly to not update the first post rolleyes.gif


I wish I bought more fans redface.gif How many other fans are there which are so good as GT that doesn't cost a arm and a leg (or can have annoying hums which I unfortunately can pick up frown.gif)? Swiftech Helix has not been released or tested to my knowledge. Even then, it's only 1800 rpm, though perhaps more models of it gets launched.

You guys have it wrong and obviously haven't being paying attention like some of us.

There was a mistake when the order was placed in that we got an rpm wire instead of connectors on bare bones. We had no idea what was going on until after the order had arrived as no one had told us the order had been placed in this manner. No one told us before placing our orders this is what would happen.

While I am somewhat annoyed at having paid the extra money for the completes, i am still saving money over prices that i would have paid here for AP-15's (Damn near half price)

As stated by some other people, i too would have preferred to purchase bare bones had we known that they would come with a tach wire and without connectors as i am going to be sleeving my cables etc and plan on redoing the connections anyway. I purchased half the number of barebones as completes so that i could connect them together and use the rpm wire from the complete to monitor (roughly) the speed of the connected bare bone.

That is wrong. I knew BEFORE THE ORDER WAS PLACED TO THE FACTORY that there would be no connector. You are the one who isnt paying attention here.

This is beating a dead horse but I think it's overstating it to say there was a "mistake when the order was placed". I think it's more accurate to say there were a series of misunderstandings and poor communication, both between whoever actually placed the order and the group, and whoever placed the order and Nidec.

Arguing about it now still doesn't change anything, so what's the point? headscratch.gif

This picture is wrong / misleading.

I don't know how allpinouts.org got it wrong but they did.

It goes

1 GND black
2 +12VDC or +5VDC red
3 Tachometric Signal yellow
(4 PWM Signal blue)

It is odd, because they get it right further down the page.

Edit:

A better(?) picture

But of course yellow is tach and I said so myself before. The discrepancy is in the order of the wires on the connectors. The picture I posted turned out to be wrong and Ginger posted to correct order. thumb.gif I guess I shoulda caught that but I just googled apicture and posted the first one I found..... ma bad tongue.gif

I'll PM Jobotoo right now in case he already sleeved 3 dozen fans with connectors in the wrong order.


What!!!! Now you tell me after sleeving 60 fans!!!

Just kidding, I have not started yet . Thanks for the PM!

while there is nothing to done on the fan order front now, people have the right express/vent their frustration.
the group buy has been plagued with more than its fair share of problems to be sure. i will give it up for those behind the scenes who have soldiered on despite this.

regarding the price, for me personally, the cost per fan (after shipping & handling. not including insurance) works out to be $19.625USD.
i could have picked up some AP-15's (1850rpm version) locally in australia for $19 each. the cost saving argument doesn't really work for me or anyone else outside the US.
but at the end of the day (when the completes are shipped), will have a bunch of fans that are quite rare. haven't owned GT's before so curious as to how they perform.
