I did not see it mentioned in this thread, but I did see it in the original GT-2150 group buy thread that was cancelled. However, I don't know how it went from BB with tach and no connector, to BB with connector and no tach.
I think one of the mods said the refunded fans will be used to replace any DOA, or damaged fans. But don't quote me on that. After that, i'm not sure what they will do with them.
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.
And IIRC, the barebones and completes were originally going to be shipped together to the customers, and that did not change because of the floods.
