tell you what, if i do end up with a broken fan or two, i'll graduate from 'annoyed' to 'super-pissed'.

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.

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.

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)

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.



It actually works out for me to half the price of GT-1850 (in my country), before shipping costs are added, compared to 2150 even after shipping for those from US rolleyes.gif
So you now know that not all countries have the same currency exchange rate compared to income, which makes most things I buy from abroad much much cheaper.

Please note that we are not offering a change of ownership. You will have to ship them to the new owner once they arrive in your possession.

Members who no longer need or want their fans will have to contact admin for a refund. Please email admin@overclock.net for more information.

I may be revising the above statement shortly as a couple of staff members have stepped up and offered to help. It should be known that I posted a thread in the staff section asking for help. There were no offers until I made the above post. Once the procedure is worked out, we will offer a change of ownership for a short period of time. Stay tuned for more information.

Since the arrival date is close, we are not allowing a change of ownership. Its simply not worth the hassle when the fans will be arriving in a few weeks. More info here - http://www.overclock.net/t/1243366/gentle-typhoon-2150-completes-arriving-soon-pay-for-shipping-now/0_50

Is OCN still doing refunds? It would be a much better option for those who do not want their fans anymore.

No. There's simply no need to offer that when they will be here in a few weeks. That just creates a lot of additional work which will probably slow the shipment of fans for everyone.

thanks for keeping us updated mort. great to see you back into the swing of things.

question, if OCN admins or yourself are no longer doing refunds, what happens to those of us (who in the oft chance) get shipped a dud fan. one of the other members suggested (unsubstantiated) that the refunded fans could be used as a replacements for busted fans.
